Brian Confer is the Founder of The Headshot Truck and Capturely. But he wasn’t always an entrepreneur. He started working as a child actor at a young age followed by pursuing acting as an adult too.

Profile

I grew up the son of an entrepreneur and graphic artist, who was an advertising executive in the 60s. At a young age I learned about marketing copy, logos, campaigns, and other sales and marketing techniques to help companies build their brand. My path to entrepreneurship was not liner though. I was a child actor and spent my high school, college, and post-college career pursuing acting in New York City, Chicago, and ultimately landing in Los Angeles. As a struggling actor I needed a day job and I was fortunate enough to find a sales job helping adults earn their college degrees while working full time. This job provided flexibility along with the potential to be quite lucrative.  I helped build that business to over $100M in annual revenue and eventually managed the sales team in the Western US.
