YOUR NETWORK IS YOUR NET WORTH:
The Quality of Your Industry Relationships Determines the Quality of your Career
How different would things be if the RIGHT industry people knew and liked you?
This powerful virtual course will arm you with the strategy and mentality to make connections and forge real relationships with the decision makers. Finally! You can open the doors to countless incredible opportunities to land more auditions, book more work, and get on the short list!
Imagine no longer jumping through countless hoops just to get an audition? Wouldn’t life be easier with people on the project championing you?
Most actors rely solely on their reps to generate auditions. But imagine how much easier it is to get you in the room when you have a personal connection with someone on the project? #agentsdream!
WARNING! This is not some stiff or calculated networking strategy. Most actors waste tons of money on workshops or they cold-call and cross their fingers.
So, you can stop feeling desperate or vying for the attention of casting directors, producers, directors, and other industry professionals.
People like to work with people they know, like, and trust. And your #1 job is to become THAT person… the actor on everybody’s short list. The one who books work without even auditioning.

They will save you thousands of dollars in classes and will shave off years of wasted time, effort, and money.

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.

The most powerful part of the networking course was] the knowledge and sheer NUMBER of resources and options that we were given in order to proceed with meeting people.
– Ryan Carnes, 300+ Hrs. of TV including NCIS, GENERAL HOSPITAL
I’ve been emailing with Sophia Coppola, which is crazy! I also had a phone call with the producer of Breaking Bad.
– Melina Hayum (later she ended up working with Sophia)
I went to a manager showcase and used my 'Tell Me About Yourself' 4 different managers gave me their emails and asked me to send them my materials!
– Veronica Wylie
This has been a complete life changing experience. I booked 3 jobs, been to several commercial auditions, met with top executive producer Jonathan Dana and also president of Robert Downey Jr.’s production company.

There are so many mistakes I’ve made along my acting journey. I spent so much money on workshops but rarely ever got called in. I was working so HARD but not seeing the results I felt I deserved.
I know exactly how exhausting it feels to work so hard as an actor, only to be disappointed by the lack of auditions you are getting. And when the auditions are coming, it oftentimes feels like they already know who they want for the role.
Since working on the business side of the industry, I’ve learned exactly what it takes to build your network and do it in a way that’s authentic for you. And incredible career breakthroughs happen as a result of becoming known by the right people. I love feeling like my career is really in my OWN hands because of the tools and strategies I’m empowered with. I’ve booked so many amazing projects as a result of relationships I’ve built. The direct offers I’ve gotten have almost all been through relationships I had built.
I’m passionate about helping you along your journey because I believe TV shows and films transform the world and the more artists I support, the more good I’m doing the world 🙂
1). Fly Solo
Piece together a hodgepodge of strategies you pick up by listening to podcasts or free stuff online. Sure, you will learn a few new things and you may even see results. But how well has piecing stuff together worked for you in the past? It took me 8+ years of trial and error PLUS working on the business side of show business to learn these effective strategies.
The Relationship Roadmap System contains your A-Z roadmap to grow your network of people who trust you and WANT to give you opportunities. I’ve eliminated all the guesswork for you and these strategies have WORKED for hundreds of actors. You can finally ignore all the conflicting advice and bright shiny object strategies you’ve been hit with up until now.
2). Wait Until the “Right Time:
You could tell yourself you’re not ready yet and keep hiding. . It’s so easy to let your fear hold you back, convincing you that you’re not ready to really get known in this industry.
This is your invitation to take new action. You deserve it. You don’t have to figure this out on your own through trial and error. Your reputation is too important for that.
3). Pay for a bunch of casting director workshops and cross your fingers that the person you meet is in it for more than just the paycheck.

Here’s some answers for ya…
1. Can you guarantee that I’ll get direct bookings within the next couple of months?
We both know I can’t promise that. It’s up to you to implement what you learn inside the course. But I can promise you that this system thoroughly guides you through what our students, clients, and I have done to start amazing friendships with industry professionals. So, if you do the work, I am confident you will see results.
2. I’m nervous that I won’t have time to implement. How much work are we talking about here?
Most of the students who have gone through this course and built great relationships have gone through this process while working a lot or having a very busy schedule. The real question is, do you really want this? Plan to spend a couple hours each week on the course and you’ll be good to go.
3. I don’t have many credits and my materials aren’t polished yet, should I hold off on taking this class?
Let me ask you—When is it too early to make a friend? The Relationship Roadmap System is designed to help you forge genuine relationships. If you don’t have a reel, it’s not a problem at ALL, because you aren’t just trying to promote yourself as an actor to them.
