I Grew Up Deeply Ashamed (And Other Reasons Why I Do This)

Whether you’ve been part of this amazing  community for years, or are just joining me, I wanted to share a deeply personal story with you today.

Everything we go through in our childhood affects who we become, and as I was thinking about “why I do this,” why do I help to uplift + empower actors to create major breakthroughs in their careers and their personal lives, well, it all begins with my story of how I grew up…

When I was growing up, I was deeply ashamed of my childhood home.

My mother, though she was amazing in so many ways + supportive of my creative endeavors, was also a compulsive hoarder.

Click the video below, as I reveal what I learned from growing up with shame, anxiety + around mental illness.

And if you prefer to read the story as I tell it, here is the rest of the transcript that begins above… (more…)

The Mental Game Shift That Can Change Everything

Today’s message is short, but powerful, and one that I hope will impact you in the coming weeks, months + even years to come. 

I love studying the inner shifts of successful people, because I know that every outer success I see, always began on the inside.

I also love that Bryan Cranston shares, so truthfully, what really shifted within him to become the massively successful actor he is today.

Check out this quick video + hear exactly what mental game shift he made, and how you, too, can adopt this new mindset in every audition or self-tape moving forward.

How to create BIG results…

What a weekend!  I did two live events connecting with actors from Vancouver to Capetown, Finland to New York and London to LA. 

To connect with this amazing community LIVE, and dive deep into how you can create real momentum and thrive through uncertainty left us all feeling empowered and uplifted.

Here are some of the awesome comments that were lighting up the chat….

It truly makes my day to give back to actors in this way + share all I’ve learned on this journey.

If you missed it, no worries, we’ve made the replay available here.  (It won’t be up for long so catch it now). 

This training has made such a big impact on actors, because it’s all based on what is working right now, amidst the current climate and conditions in our world + the industry.  

It’s fresh perspectives, real life stories, and tangible tools you can implement today.

Then, I’ll show you exactly how to apply what you learn to your daily life right now – so you can feel empowered + become unstoppable (instead of simply adding more “should do’s” to your plate).

What I’ve learned about getting big results in my life, whether it’s becoming fit (in my body or mind) or up-leveling my life and career, is that it’s never about one, big giant moment, (that’s just what most people see on Instagram).

Big results come from small, committed daily actions.

And look, I know right now, many of us feel “off our game” and “off our routine.”

So. if there is one action today that will help you create real momentum this week, this month and this year, it’s (more…)

How To Create Momentum Amidst Uncertainty

Have you been feeling off your game lately or finding it hard to focus? I get it.

What usually stops us from moving forward on any given day might feel like external circumstances, but ultimately it all begins within.

It’s understandable that in times of uncertainty, you might wake up in the morning and one of the following is going on in your mind.

  1. You’re filled with fear.
  2. You’re failing to focus.
  3. You’re fueled by false beliefs.

Why? The mind is rooted in limitation + fear.

But the heart is rooted in expansion + love.

When we are born, we are all heart + pure love, but as we get older, we start operating from the mind.

Over time, that limited mind voice gets louder and the heart voice becomes a whisper we almost can’t hear.

You want to create momentum in your life or your career, but all too often, your action gets drowned out by mental logic, other’s opinions + historical thinking about how it’s gone for you in the past.

That is what stops you. It’s what stops all of us from moving forward.

I’ll show you how it works….and you can turn up the volume of the heart today.

Click the video below + learn 9 ways your limited mind is keeping you stuck, and what your expanded heart really wants you to know. (more…)

The Biz Is Back! (A Free Gift To Get You Ready)

The biz is back!  On Friday, June 12th, here in California we got the green light that production can resume after the COVID-19 shutdown.

I know that my amazing community of actors are all over the world, but now that Hollywood production is slowly returning, that’s a good sign that other cities may get back to work in the coming weeks + months soon too.

I want to celebrate by sending a free gift that will help you to compete at the highest level in our “new normal.”

One thing every actor must be ready to rock? The Self Tape.

I know so many actors who are feeling overwhelmed with all they have to think about in order to submit a pro-level self-tape that really stands out.

It’s definitely not the same as simply walking into a live audition.

Of course you want to give your best performance, but now you have to make sure the sound, lighting, framing and other technical aspects are at a top professional level too.

There’s definitely a lot of noise out there right now on what to do and what not to do, and so I decided to put together one simple checklist to make it easy to deliver self-tape success.

Every. Single. Time.

I created this Self-Tape Success Checklist and I wanted you, my loyal reader, to be the first to have it, for free!

You can download your Self Tape Success Checklist here for free (no opt-in required).

Here’s a sneak peak at all you’ll need to cover to deliver awesome self-tapes (and of course, I made it into an acronym).  (more…)

What To Do When You’re Not Feeling Good

With all that’s going on in the world right now (and especially in the U.S.), I hope you know that it’s okay…to not feel okay.

For me, when I’m not feeling good, I make it my mission to tune inward before taking action. 

I’ve realized that taking emotional inventory before jumping into circumstances that don’t feel aligned to me is the key, but it takes conscious awareness.

Our emotions serve as an important internal guidance system, and when we take the time to process what we’re feeling and why, we are able to make better decisions.

So, if you’re feeling unsteady, uneasy or unhappy today, listen to that, honor it and allow yourself the space today to then do what feels best to you.

You may discover that doing the things you “said you were going to do today,” just don’t feel good.  Maybe it all feels heavy right now.  And that’s ok.

You might need a break.
You might need a good cry.
You might need some time to simply process your emotions.

And all of it is okay.

Today, I’m sharing a personal story of something that happened recently, and how “not okay” I felt in the moment and what I did about it.

Click below to watch the quick video…

I hope this helps you to know that it’s okay to not feel okay. (more…)

⭐Wellness Gifts For You (+ Featured in Variety)⭐

I hope you are finding ways to ease any anxiety + improve your well-being during this time (and that you remember, there’s no “one way” to do this).

It’s been amazing to hear from so many people who are listening to my 15 minute free guided meditation. “Easing Anxiety + Improving Well-Being” + telling me “I felt better after 15 minutes of listening to your audio, than I had in weeks.”  

This is music to my ears, especially in the midst of all that is going on in the world. 

Download + listen to it here. 

And if you’ve been feeling overwhelmed, before you attempt another week of getting “busy doing more,” download my “Well-Being To-Do List”

This will serve as a quick reminder (and perhaps the permission slip you need) to reevaluate, recalibrate + redesign your life to make what matters most to you the main priority. 

It has always been my mission to help actors thrive through uncertainty, and now, more than ever, I’m aware that taking care of our own mental health + wellness, must be at the top of our list.

Once you begin your day in ways that empower you (and have tools to realign your mind), you’ll actually feel better and even be more productive.

I’m thrilled to see that this mental health + wellness message is expanding throughout our community + the world. 

I’m honored to be featured (alongside Arianna Huffington) in Variety + wanted to share the news with you here too.

It’s part of an ongoing series from entertainment industry insiders, and if you scroll down on this volume of the Corona Chronicles, you’ll find my featured piece.
