What are actors saying about this service?
“This cleared up so much confusion on the Industry, it’s insane. I had gotten advice from so many people in the past about how to manage my career, but it seemed so overwhelming. I didn’t know where to start. I knew I had the skill and the passion, but I just felt like I was blindly fumbling along. I felt a little hopeless on my career. Now that everything is cleared up, I can’t BELIEVE I didn’t start sooner. It’s a very powerful feeling to know that not only do we all have the skills that it takes as an actor, and in becoming a character, but to take control of the direction of my career.” – LH
“Wow, this [service] was awesome! Super helpful. I feel like I can totally go out there and actually succeed. The best part was that it totally put me in the driver’s seat. Before, I felt very, sort of, “please like me,” to the industry, agents, managers, casting people, etc. I realized that is INSANE! …. I feel fully confident that I can do this! Takes work! But I can do it! I’m down to work!” – SS
