Note: A portfolio is an essential requirement of the industry and hence, it should be of the best quality. A bad portfolio can ruin your career before starting.
3 # Always keep your personal stats handy: In the process of becoming a model, anybody can anywhere as your personal stats like height, weight, hip size, chest size, shoe size, etc. Therefore, you must keep your stats handy as you go for auditions.

My words might sound harsh to you, but it's utter reality; the career in modelling is not always stable. You can be motivated by seeing the career graph of successful women and men model, but not newbie models turn into successful ones. Not all have lucrative career and fame. Therefore, the best tip from me is that, always start a modelling career while having a good job to survive. You can start modelling as a part-time job and become a freelance model. You can search and join freelance modelling assignment and build up experience and contacts to start as a full fledged model.
Once you have good contacts and enough savings to support your days of struggle in the industry, you can then plan to become a full-time model.
Here I would conclude-
Smart work is better than hard work; become smart!
The life of a model is a mix of glamour and glitz but it does not always remain the same. A model has to work day and night to complete a modelling assignment without thinking of personal life and lifestyle. So, if you choose this career, no matter how bad your mood is, you will still require to be smiling and pleasing.
Of course, there are many perks of becoming a model. As you become a successful model, everybody knows your name and desire to be like you.
