Self-Tapes + Bookings In The New Normal

Booking off a self-tape.  Do you believe that can happen?

Or do you have thoughts like, “I’m better in the room” or “They’ll never watch this anyway.”

That’s exactly what one of my students, Dominic Ryan, a London based actor, used to think too.  He told me this recently, “I was never a fan of self-tapes, as I felt my true personality never came across like it did in the room.”

So what shifted for Dominic? I share it in a quick video here, as well as the exact tool he used (and how you can get it for free) to get in the zone, confidently prepare a self-tape audition in London + book a feature film…that shoots in Russia!

In fact, I’ll send you this “secret self-tape audition weapon” for free when you register for my upcoming brand-new FREE LIVE masterclass happening this week!

Click here to register + I’ll send you this special “self-tape success” gift.

When you join me in the free masterclass, I’ll walk you through a simple process to help you uplevel your self-tapes, book more jobs + shine under pressure in the new normal.

It’s nothing I’ve ever taught before + the free virtual masterclass is filling up fast.

This Scared Me + I Can’t Stop Thinking About It…

I did something that scared me last month + I can’t stop thinking about it.

I did a free LIVE virtual training (perhaps you were there?), and I had to learn an entirely new software system to pull it off. 

And yes, there was a lot of self-doubt + some serious ugly cry moments trying to quickly learn the new technology. Have you had those moments too lately? Maybe with all of the self-taping?  

But what I also learned was that I didn’t have to be perfect, I just had to be present. And guess what? It absolutely wasn’t perfect, but I know that’s also what made my live training so amazing.

To connect with each other in REAL TIME – LIVE was electric, and I’m still buzzing from it.

To realize I can show up for this amazing community of actors from all over the world, and be vulnerable and authentic is honestly what makes my heart sing.

(And let’s not forget, vulnerability + authenticity is also what makes you a compelling actor).

I’ve also been hearing from actors everywhere that you’ve been feeling off your game lately, questioning your self-tape submissions and wondering how you’ll deliver your best work on the job in our “new normal…(or all of the above),

I hear you + I decided to do something about it.

 I just put together a BRAND-NEW FREE MASTERCLASS and am going to teach it to you LIVE in August.

I’m going to walk you through a simple + proven process to uplevel your self-tapes, book more jobs + shine under pressure.

My Milestone Birthday (Gifts For You…..)

I celebrated a milestone birthday yesterday. (Yes, turning 30 is amazing! I mean 40. I mean 50!) What?

I feel 28 on the inside (and I rollerblade like I was 18), but as my late mother used to wisely tell me, at whatever age I was turning…”one day, you’ll wish you were this age.” So true.

So, today, I’m enjoying celebrating 5 decades on the planet + all I have learned, how I have grown, and who I have become along the way.

I’m also celebrating all of the love in my life, from my amazing readers like you, to my courageous students, to my closest friends and cherished family.

My husband put together a virtual party on Zoom for me this weekend + I was overcome with emotion seeing my beautiful friends, hearing their stories, well-wishes and toasts and simply feeling all of the love + connection.

It made me realize what really matters at the end of the day. It’s not the credits, the bookings or the awards.

It’s the love that flows from your heart to another person + back to you and how you make a difference in each other’s lives.

I want to send that love your way today. (more…)

Dealing With Tough Emotions (And Answering The Call)

If you’re feeling all kinds of emotions come up during these uncertain times, know that you are not alone.

I’ve been inspired by many messages lately, and wanted to share this insight with you from French philosopher, Pascal.  He stated this back in the 1600’s (centuries before the internet, of course)…

“All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”

Easing Your Anxiety (My Gift To You) 💕🌎🙏

I’ve created something to help you ease anxiety + improve well-being during this global pandemic, and decided to give it away for free to anyone who needs it.

I know there’s a lot of fear + uncertainty in the world right now, but this is also a beautiful opportunity to go within + create more peace in your life.

The Dalai Lama states that, “World peace begins with inner peace.”

Sometimes, in the midst of chaos, people have an even harder time finding stillness.

In fact, one friend, who knows she should meditate, told me, “Right now, meditation just feels like worrying with my eyes closed.”

I get it. That’s where guided meditation comes in.

You don’t need to know how to meditate.

You don’t have to sit in the lotus pose.

You just need to know how to download an audio, press play + listen.

In under 15 minutes, I will guide you to quiet your mind, relax your body + open your heart.

Just imagine if everyone in the world did this for 15 minutes a day, what kind of peace might emerge out of this global pause.

Here’s to knowing that in every moment throughout your day, you have the option to choose peace over panic, and I’m excited to provide a free guided meditation to help you realign your mind + alleviate some of your stress.

Mindset Mantras To End The Year Feeling Great

A short and sweet reminder that you are so much more than your career and your latest credits.

You play many roles in your life + they are all meaningful and valuable.  “Actor” is only one of those roles, just as “what you’ve done” in your career this year is only one facet of the multi-faceted diamond that is you.

So whether you print this out + tape it to your bathroom mirror or screenshot the graphic + save it to your phone, allow it to serve as a loving guide to end the year knowing that not only are you enough exactly as you are right now, but that you are a precious gift.

Treat yourself this way as the year comes to a close + you will start the New Year off in the right direction.

Pause and read this anytime you feel your inner critic try to define you, judge you or criticize you…

You may find yourself sitting at the dinner table feeling the need to explain yourself and your acting career more than ever.

This is easy to do when you’re working.  It’s fun to share what you’ve “been in lately” or where everyone can tune in to “catch you next.”

But what about those times where you don’t feel you have “anything to show for your efforts?” (more…)
