Sometimes stepping away from focusing solely on your acting career can actually help you generate more auditions or even book a job.
This spring, I’ve found the most insightful metaphors to be in my garden. Here’s how to take cues from nature and ask the right questions to guide you towards success.
Flowers have always been nature’s quiet reminder of how to be: vibrant, unique, surprising, beautiful, filled with wonder and love. Creating a successful garden requires examination, preparation, decision-making, daily action, patience, and love – as does your career. Let’s take a closer look. (more…)
Since the month of February seems to be all about LOVE, the question I’d like us to begin to ask ourselves daily is, “What do can I do to show myself more love today?”
Besides buying yourself flowers and chocolate (I’m all for that too!), you can use this question to trigger ways to be a little kinder to yourself – mentally, spiritually, physically & emotionally. Here are 10 ways to get started.… (more…)
One of the best ways to help yourself get “unstuck” in your life + your career is to express daily gratitude.
I know the tendency is to think that when you “book a job, get an agent, book a commercial, film, series etc.,” THEN you will feel grateful, but it doesn’t work that way. You may think that all that “good stuff” will take you to a higher place, but the reality is once you take yourself there daily (and take inspired action), the “good stuff” will come.
As long as you need any of the aforementioned things to make you feel whole as an actor, you are actually repelling them. (more…)
Most actors in the waiting room at auditions are filled with fear and anxiety. Some of them judge it, blame it, shame it, and do anything to try to push it away. What happens when you reject fear? It grows. It takes over. It stops you from connecting to your best + most present self and bringing that energy in the audition room.
Here are 4 steps for dealing with audition anxiety.(more…)
I BOOKED THE JOB! LISTENING TO CREATING POWERFUL AUDITIONS MADE A DIFFERENCE!
"Been listening to your "Creating Powerful Auditions" mp3 daily since purchasing about a week ago. Listened to it on the way to an audition...took a few moments before leaving my car to do the visualizations. I walked into the audition room feeling totally empowered, feeling light. I booked the job. I feel your album made a difference. Thank you, Wendy."
YOUR CREATION IS...VERY POWERFUL, IT CALMED ME, PREPARED ME & FOCUSED ME + I BOOKED JOBS.
"Since I began using your guided meditations I have now, in only a few months, booked up an entire year of work. Your creation is truly a blessing + very powerful. Before every audition I have done recently I have listened to at least 3 of your tracks and it has calmed me, prepared me and focused me."
I'VE TURNED A SLOW STREAK INTO A BOOKING STREAK AND I FEEL REALLY EMPOWERED.
"Wendy is so generous with her knowledge and understanding of the deeper, inside work that goes into living a healthy, happy, well balanced actor life. Her daily inspirations mean so much to me...and I'm grateful for the custom guided meditation she wrote for me. I've turned a slow streak into a booking streak & I feel really empowered."

I BOOKED TWO ACTING GIGS IN THE SAME WEEK BECAUSE I HAD HER CD ON REPEAT!
"I listen to Wendy's guided meditations pretty much every chance I get. I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have her amazing voice in my ear keeping me empowered, inspired + in the right mental space to persevere day in and day out. I booked two acting gigs in the same week because I had Wendy's Creating Powerful Auditions album on repeat. Thank you WENDY for your positivity + light!"
YOUR AFFIRMATIONS ALLOWED ME TO STEP OUT OF THE FEAR AND BE PRESENT IN THE ROOM.
"I just returned from an audition after listening to your guided meditations. Your affirmations allowed me to step out of the fear and be present in the room. As I waited for my audition I envisioned the session being successful and feeling empowered afterward. And it was and I did."
SINCE LISTENING TO YOUR GUIDED MEDITATIONS, I BOOKED 2 FEATURE FILMS
"I bought Creating Powerful Auditions and I listen to it every morning. "Empowering Myself" is my absolute favorite meditation, sometimes I put it on repeat until I fully and truly feel every declaration. Since I've been listening to your guided meditations I booked my first feature film + also recently booked the lead role in my first horror film. Thank you for coming into my life!”
