Let’s face it, the entertainment industry isn’t an easy place to make a living.

In fact, Side Hustle Nation notes that even the rich and famous have side hustles to grow their wealth (so, no shame if you have one too)!

So that you’re able to fully separate your entertainment industry work from your side hustle work, use a Burner phone.

We always suggest using a Burner phone when applying for jobs, especially if the jobs are short-term positions or one-off projects, which is the case most of the time in the entertainment industry.

When applying for your next production position or comedy gig, use a Burner phone number so that, if things don’t go the way you planned, you can burn the number and move on. You don’t have to worry about receiving spam texts, random calls, or that your private number will fall into the hands of someone that doesn’t need it.
