Just SOME of Career ACTivate’s Success Stories:
9+ Episodes Recurring on Hit Show
Before Career ACTivate, I was in this lost situation where I had my materials, I was happy to with my reel and all that, but I wasn’t sure…what am I suppose to do everyday, not just submit on LA Casting Actors Access. My girlfriend found Jona on a FB group and we joined the program…I probably wouldn’t have had an agent without Career ACTivate. I probably wouldn’t have the wherewithal to be so forthcoming when I’m on set…I’m now on 9 episodes and counting on the Freeform show GOOD TROUBLE!
Booked Series Regular on 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.
Generating Major Auditions On My Own
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.
Choice of Reps & Priceless Relationships
My career is YEARS ahead of where it would be because of Career ACTivate! If you are serious about making a long lasting career as an actor, Career ACTivate is more than worth it!
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.
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.
More Results in a Few WEEKS than in 9 Years!
I’ve been in LA for 9 years and after working with Jona, I finally got my first theatrical agent and manager. I wish I worked with her sooner! Jona gives you simple and effective techniques to securing meetings that I never thought of before. I feel further along now in my career after working with Jona for a few short weeks than I have the whole 9 years I’ve been here. I recommend her to all my friends and will continue to take her courses! Not only is she extremely knowledgeable and creative, she’s the sweetest!
Always Learning New & Helpful Info
With an MBA and years of corporate experience, you would think I should have thought of these materials a long time ago. This program is proof positive that you can always learn something new and helpful.
3-5 Auditions/Week + Agents Fighting Over Me
I’d be completely lost here navigating the trenches without Jona’s guidance. I started with was next to nothing, and Jona helped me craft myself and my marketing into a dynamite package that is getting notice. I have had agents fighting over me now and averaging 3-5 auditions per week… and that’s a good place to be 🙂
New Tactics for Veteran Actors
Jona brought me into the 21st century. Her insight into the current market helped me narrow my focus which was all over the place. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Jona to anyone who needs help with the business side of show.
Amazing Team of Reps!
Following her blueprint, I signed with New Wave Entertainment, signed with a highly respected commercial agency, signed with a Southeast agent, AND I shot a pilot and a movie.
