The People Store Founder and President Rebecca Shrager Celebrates Thirty Years of Success
The People Store, recognized by Hollywood’s top directors as the Southeast’s Premiere Talent Agency, represents actors in movies and TV shows including Twilight, Hunger Games:Catching Fire, Sleepy Hollow, The Game, Vampire Diaries, and Last Vegas.
Thirty years ago, with just a chair, a desk, and a phone, Rebecca Shrager had a dream to start a talent agency that valued “real looking” people. Now, in 2013, The People Store celebrates its 30th anniversary as the most successful talent agency in the Southeast. “Even after 30 years, every day is a new adventure. That’s what I love about this business.” says Shrager.
When Shrager decided to start The People Store in 1983, she started out with a love for her business that never diminished, forming relationships with her employees, clients, and talent. Brenda Pauley, co-owner of The People Store, sees this quality first hand. “Rebecca is an absolutely incredible businesswoman. She cares about not only her talent, but her clients and the people she employs. She’s a very loving, compassionate, nurturing woman - a Jewish mother to all,” Pauley said. Shrager never loses this compassion in her pursuit to be a successful businesswoman.
Shrager may have started out with only a desk, a chair, and a phone, but she now has offices and a strong presence in Atlanta, New Orleans, Los Angeles, and New York. “In running a successful business, you can never sit back and let things be status quo. You always have to be making things better,” Shrager said. In an article on the nationwide talent website, Project Casting, The People Store was referred to as “one of the best talent agencies in the business.”
Shrager attributes much of her success to letting go of the initial fear she had as an entrepreneur starting a business. ”You can be afraid of failure or afraid of success. It doesn’t matter. You just have to go forward. I was so afraid at first, but then I got through that, and I said ’I’m gonna be successful and that’s that.’ I just took it one step at a time,” Shrager said.
