Genuine Connections + Real Opportunities
Do you feel like you’d work even more if the right people knew you? What distinguishes highly successful people from everyone else is the way they use the power of relationships—so that everyone wins. This powerful one-day intensive will give you the strategy, tools, and mindset to forge relationships with the decision makers to create amazing acting opportunities.
Previous students have forged connections with the President of Universal, President of Robert Downey Jr.’s production company, Director Sophia Coppola, Executive Producer of BRIDESMAIDS, VP of Casting for Sony, Executive Producers of TV shows they were targeting, and other MAJOR DECISION MAKERS. Through building these relationships, students have gotten several auditions as well as STRAIGHT BOOKINGS for TV shows and feature films.

I have been building relationships with major TV and Film people who are helping to leverage my success. Do everything Jona says, her program is amazing and works. Too many actors waste their time in comparison or relying on others.”

Whole World Changed
“Since taking Career ACTivate’s class 2 weeks ago, my whole world has changed…I’ve cultivated a relationship with a major Hollywood director who has agreed to discuss a potential role for me, a network showrunner helped book me for a large role in an ABC show. I’m playing principal roles in two films with estimated budgets of between $5-$15 million…And I’m only telling a third of the myriad opportunities that have become available. Thank you Jona for giving the tools to build a wonderful life and have a compelling future.”

2 Straight Bookings
Because of the knowledge and techniques that I learned in Jona’s workshop, I was able to completely re-think how I went about getting acting jobs. Through my new approach, I was able to connect with a director who had several significant projects in the works…and I was offered a role in both of his upcoming projects and will be filming in Italy for one of them! No audition!!! I’m a believer of Jona’s techniques.

Created Connections Without Using Anyone
I have created connections without feeling like I am just asking for a favor. This is a big step for me because I hate to bother people. No one talks about the importance of networking and shows you how to be the best at it like Jona!
