Generally after experiencing Career ACTivate on some level, whether it’s through our intensives, a coaching session or home study courses, we have found that students have continued to come back to us looking for more information, follow-up and strategies in excelling their careers to an even more heightened level.
Doing a one day intensive, home study course or private coaching, you will get a lot of value, but our year-long coaching programs help you implement the knowledge you have, while also gaining access to an overwhelming number of resources, with a coach along your side helping you to best implement what you are learning, and a powerful community of actors to support and challenge you.
Information = What to do
Training = Knowledge of “how to do it”
Coaching = Giving you the wisdom of what to do in the moment
“If there is something you want and don’t have, it just means there is something you don’t know.” – Jona Xiao, CEO of Career ACTivate
There is a big gap between having information and being mentored and guided along the way
Just as professional baseball train with Elite coaches to fine tune their skills to compete in the major leagues, it takes professional coaching in not only the craft of acting, but excelling in the “business” of “show business.”
As you may have seen in pursuing your acting career, many actors have a lot of knowledge, but it’s those who take ACTION on what they are learning that end up making leaps and bounds toward their career.
We created these elite coaching programs so that you can experience FAST RESULTS for your career, taking YOU from “Where You Are” and LEAP-FROGGING you to where you want to be!
“Who, exactly, seeks out a coach? – Winners who want even more out of life.” -Chicago Tribune
“Coaching with Career ACTivate is like buying stock in yourself…but with insiders information.”

You may meet a few special guests as well (previous guests have included a 2014 Oscar-winning producer, 2015 Emmy-winning producers, a TV showrunner, executive producers of Blockbuster movies, etc.).
“Thank you so much for bringing so many, talented, successful and open people together. You changed my life and focused my mind. I loved the quality of speakers you invited…great inspiration for any actor who is serious about being successful and allowing anything they want.” -Eugenia Kuzmina, FURY, NEW GIRL, TRUE BLOOD
“I love the mastermind experience. To me, it was renewing, rejuvenating, and I felt like being with a group of fellow actors really helped me realize that some of the obstacles and blocks that I’ve come up against, even as a working actor, I’m not alone. It was really nice to be supported by my peers and to get to be in the presence of an Oscar– winning guest was really inspiring and affirming and I’m really grateful…There’s always room to grow. I’ve found that being around all these people, some of whom have way more credits than I do, have strengths that I don’t. They have wisdom that I don’t.
–Ryan Carnes (60+ episodes of GENERAL HOSPITAL, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES).
NINJA RESOURCES AND STRATEGIES
-Access to HARD-TO-GET INDUSTRY INFO: We can’t have all of their students using certain extremely ninja tactics (ones we don’t share while teaching), but are shared with our coaching clients.
“Before I joined the Career ACTivate Elite Coaching program, I hadn’t had an audition, a union theatrical audition, in probably over a year. Now that I’ve learned ninja strategies, [in just a month of being in the program] I’ve auditioned for network series regular roles for pilots and huge hit network shows and I just really feel in control of my career. It’s really, really exciting and it’s very powerful for me. My reps are just like, ‘Oh, you got another audition! Have you heard of this show?’ You know, and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I know. I got myself that audition. Can you just pass the information on to me?’ They’re happy. They’re excited. They love actors that take their careers into their own hands.” –Tanjareen Thomas, 50+ TV Shows/Films

Watch this testimonial from our client, Mia Sable, who was in LA for 10 years before joining the coaching program, and in an accelerated amount of time, Mia signed to TalentWorks and WME and is now booking consistent work:
How much will this cost me?
Ever hear the phrase, “It takes money to make money?” You need to start thinking of your career as an investment… so start asking yourself, “How much will this MAKE me in the future?” Many clients who come to work with us tell us they wish they would have discovered this program long before they joined and that it would have saved them a lot of time and money. We have different packages, investment options, and payment plans to work within different budgets and needs.
Booked a series regular in a major TV series
“It’s been the best investment I’ve made in my career, even better than drama school…I just booked a new series as series regular (each episode has a $6 million budget) that I’ll be attached to for four seasons given the show goes on for that along. My career is about to explode…Do you really want to look back when you are 80 or 90 years old and think to yourself, “Why didn’t I do that when I had the opportunity?” Because life’s short, you only get one life…Live your dreams and go for it! You are the only one holding yourself back.” –Edward Coupland (only had 1 TV credit before joining the Elite Program)
“I am too new to L.A… I will try it on my own first.”
“I was very new to acting and within just a couple of months of being in the program I booked 3 TV shows (the first was a direct booking). I continue to learn smart new strategies after every coaching session that empower me to take my career to the next level. Now, after only being in the program a few months, I am now actively pursuing Guest Star credits!!! Career ACTivate is the best support group and the best investment you’ll make in your acting career!” -Melody Peng (update: she booked her first 7 TV shows during her Elite Program year)
“I’ve been in the industry for awhile…how much more could I learn?”

More Elite Coaching & Mastermind Client Testimonials
“Before working with Career ACTivate, I was so lost. I was traveling to do extra work for free. After being in the program for only 2 months, I’ve been auditioning 5 times/week for paid work, I booked a guest star on TV, and after that I got an agent and manager!” -Fred Fleury, Netflix’s Gringolandia
“Please seek the program if you are an actor that is looking for clarity in this business, unstoppable support from a fellow group of actors, and the best techniques on unlocking the potential you have within.” –Cesar Obregon
First of all, I’d like to say that I have worked in commercial casting & have worked for theatrical producers in NYC. I am not some “young” uninformed actor and I have still learned SO MUCH about the business and how to get ahead. Within 3 months of working with my coach, I signed with a great commercial agent and within 3 more months I was offered representation by 3 different management companies and got to choose who I wanted to sign with! I also know my brand, have an awesome website, have great commercial & theatrical headshots, a strong reel that I’m proud of, have created real relationships with TOP casting directors and producers, and have an amazing group of supportive actor friends. The year long program teaches you everything you need to know! They teach how to network (and you lose the icky feeling that word usually brings up), how to pitch yourself for roles, how to get an agent/manager, how to up-level if you already have reps, how to build your relationship w/ your current reps & casting offices….They also teach you TONS of insider tips/tactics and also ways to use technology to support you – info that my non-acting corporate world friends have been blown away by! The information I’ve received and the relationships I’ve cultivated is truly priceless to me.” –– Jenna Doolittle, SCANDAL
“Completely transformed my perception of what is possible for my life.” –Zinnia Lane, NASHVILLE, DROP DEAD DIVA
