Knowing How to Play the Game- Learning how to WIN!   

As kids you might have played MONOPOLY as we did. Since I was the youngest I thought the point of the game was to shake the dice and move my little shoe around the board. What did I know?  I was a 5 year old. But the real strategy for the game of Monopoly? Buy all the property, put hotels on everything and when someone lands on your site-   You Make Money $$$  -talk about passive income!   You have a system for winning! 

If only it were that easy...to be a successful ACTOR in NYC or LA. It can be ...if you have a system and a Coach!    

As a successful Coach and Marketing Mentor, I look at actor's marketing strategies.  Some actors remind me of the way I used to  play Monopoly - rolling the dice and moving their shoe around the board:     

*Submitting themselves on-line and getting showcases, student films, extra work  

*Sending out cover letters and resumes monthly   

*Paying to meet casting directors and agents one-on-one with little or no response


These strategies may have worked at some point but today they don't seal the deal. Very few actors get quality work or agent representation by using any of the above techniques. They're just going around the board wearing out their "shoe". Very frustrating!

Cut to the chase and get you what you really want in your career and life! How?


               Time for a NEW strategy - A System for WINNING.


Why not hire a Coach? A Mentor? Someone who's been there, done that, knows a lot of major industry people and has developed a successful system to help you succeed!   When you’re ready to start winning, let’s talk.
