This term refers to the first step of something that can be described as great. The Big Break is typically the springboard that propelled someone important into their current status, or at least gave them a start in their career. The Big Break doesn't play favorites most of the time and just about anyone is eligable. It comes down to some hard work, being at the right place at the right time and a little luck. The good kind.

Big Breaks are often mentioned in the biography of celebrities, because it is difficult to be noticed in the sea of unknown talents. Thus a break is a way in. Often, it is a demo tape in the hands of the right executive or a foot in the door to an acting agency. Big Breaks come in all shapes and sizes.

Perhaps we all have a Big Break waiting for us sometime in this journey.
