Register today and get a complimentary ONE HOUR private Next-Step Spotlight session with a Career ACTivate Consultant!
What to expect in your Next-Step Spotlight Session:
During this consultation, you and your consultant will be focusing on the larger picture look at your career. Your consultant will help you get clear on your goals, diagnose what’s going on with your career, why you aren’t where you want to be just yet, and what areas you should bring attention too.
What we’ve found in the past is that when we first work with an actor on a one-to-one basis, the actor THINKS they know what direction they need to focus and would ask a lot of questions around that subject and it was later that we realized they were missing a bigger chunk and they were putting the cart before the horse. Also, we’ll explore ways Career ACTivate can support you in achieving your goal beyond this one conversation because we find that while this session IS going to be amazing and really crack open some new possibilities, the real transformation happens beyond the first conversation (various programs at www.careeractivate.com under the Get Started tab).
*Note: Private consultation must be completed within 60 days of program purchase, otherwise this bonus is forfeited.
You will get access to the home study course within 1 day and can work through the material at your own pace.

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.”
– Dre Michael Chaney, BACK IN THE GAME, RIZZOLI & ISLES
Opportunities on the Spot!
When Jona talked about looking at networking more like building relationships and adding value to people’s life I started giving rather than asking. I helped a friend out by giving him networking tips and in return, he invited me to meet a casting director friend of his. When I met him, he invited me, on the spot, to participate in a Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike music video. That was an awesome week!
– Daisy Julia
[The most powerful part of the networking program was] the knowledge and sheer NUMBER of resources and options that we were given in order to proceed with meeting people.
– Ryan Carnes, 125+ Hrs. of TV including DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, BONES & GENERAL HOSPITAL
Overwhelmed with TOO MANY Auditions
I just finished Jona’s 7 week Power Networking program. At the end of the program, I launched my *very specific* outreach program. I was so happy to receive numerous auditions…Trust me, there is no fluff in this program. It WILL bring results, so be ready to go, once you start it! It works no matter what market you are in!
– Zinnia Lane, Atlanta Actress
I am pretty late to the game in doing this home study session, I started Career ACTivate at the tail end of February, but since then have noticed all of the opportunities that have unfolded in front of me with the help of Ben and everyone else over at Career ACTivate. It’s been six months since I started pursuing acting and 4 months with Career ACTivate, and I booked a spec pilot without having to audition for it. Out of 4 auditions I have been on, I book 1 and met some really cool people while filming. In all honesty, I have been able to accomplish all of this all the while have to juggle a full-time job, class and a not so ideal living situation. Now that I’ve got my living situation under wraps and my job is presenting me with newer opportunities, I will be able to kick this stuff into a super duper high gear and kick some major ass for the rest of the year with Career ACTivate and forward =]
– Manuel Alvarado
3 Career Changing Meetings
I’ve procured 3 meetings so far. One with a big producer/writer/show creator, one with a casting director, and one with a series regular actress. Jona’s method gives you the tools and the motivation to go beyond what you think you can achieve!!!
– Katelin Chesna, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, TRUE BLOOD, A PERFECT GETAWAY
Power Networker in a Matter of HOURS
“Jona Xiao’s power networking workshop is a beacon for any actor adrift in the Sea of Sameness or trapped in an Ocean of Inertia. She will navigate you to becoming a Hollywood power networker in a matter of hours.”
– Lawrence Chau, International Actor
Networking My Ass Off
5 weeks in LA results = networking my ass off, landing an agent, dinner with 2 producers (produced MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING and the movie with Halle Berry & Oliver Martinez), and filming in Beverly Hills.
– Nancy Rizk, Austrailian Actress
OPENED MY EYES
People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it. Getting specific strategies to speak to people’s heart & soul was invaluable. It also opened my eyes to the core of why I’m an actress. Knowing and owning that feels great.
“Last week I met the executive producer of Bridesmaids, The Sixth Sense, etc. and then had dinner with him.”
– John Alexander
Connecting with SO MANY of My Buyers Now!
“I’ve been emailing with the write of HOUSE and have a meeting with the head of casting for Universal’s features. I’ve been emailing with one of the VP’s of USA Network, a ton of directors, a ton of casting directors.”
– Alanna Giuliani
EASIER THAN I THINK
The powerful takeaway I got…was how beneficial it will ultimately be (and personally gratifying) to help other people, starting with the five that I’m reaching out to to say” hey, how can I help you etc.” and seeing that that is easier than I think, and that I have contacts and other ways of helping other people, whether in THE BIZ or not, than I would have previously assumed. I was able to put my daughters teacher ( who wants to intern this summer as a camera assistant) in touch with the co-producer of my last film who lives in LA
-Tom Hildreth, exec. produced and starred in film recently on Lifetime
Networking is EASY
I used to cringe when I heard the word networking. Now I see how easy it really is and even better, what it is I have to offer. I am already proactive, I know see how easily it can be with bigger results.
– Landall Goolsby, BROOKLYN NINE-NINE, WORKAHOLICS, HELLO LADIES
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.
– W. Cameron Tucker
Virtual Programs are the BEST!
Jona’s virtual programs are the best in the industry. Those programs were more career changing for me than any in-person coaching or class I have attended. Jona shares some of the best ideas that I’ve ever heard about networking and reaching out. She changed my mind completely about what networking was in a matter of minutes. If you’re impatient and want ideas and action plans that make changes right away, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second about purchasing these programs. They will save you thousands of dollars in classes and will shave off years of wasted time, effort, and money. Jona will guide you through audio and video lessons and then you’ll be given a series of action steps to take to achieve your specific goals. Jona created a system where you’ll be able to download a PDF of the main action points explained in the lesson and be able to implement them right away. You’ll have a system to rely on to stay on track until your goals are achieved. You won’t feel alone or that you’re left with just a bunch of concepts in your head after you’re done with a class as most coaches in L.A. do. This is not a one time quick fix but a long term plan to get you where you need to be.
– Damien Snow
The networking course helped me get a few letters for my O-1 Visa application!
– Natasha May
Great Life Experiences
Not only have I gotten auditions and meeting, but I finally have my career in my own hands. I’ve been able to have some really great life experiences and, through networking, made some amazing friends. Thanks Jona!
– Jon Bangle
Bookings Through Networking
Using Career ACTivate’s networking tips I was called in for an ABC Family show on my own, booked a commercial and was cast in a SAG film for the 168 film festival before the program even ended! 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. Find your unique brand, hone in on it and trust the process! Thanks so much Jona!!!!”
