"As an actor who gets the work they want by understanding the business of artistry, Elise is a person who is fearless and in control.
Talks with her are not only practical, honest and direct but empowering; not only to act but embrace your best most genuine self."
"Before taking the plunge and working with Elise, I was feeling scattered about which goals to pursue and how to focus my efforts with two “day jobs” sucking up a lot of time and energy. I was throwing a lot of spaghetti at the wall in the hope that anything would stick.
With my goal of breaking in to the audiobook industry, Elise worked with me on the various technical aspects I needed to understand and perfect – from ways to use the training I already had as an actor, to new and specific skills needed as a narrator. Through my work with her I refined that technique, figured out which genres I was best suited to, made a demo, and crafted reach-out letters. The beautiful thing about Elise is her generosity in not just helping you be ready, but in sharing her contacts. I booked my first audiobook through one of her referrals and am about to record my third audiobook (that's 3 in three months!). [Kim is now at 19 audiobooks and counting!]
None of this would have happened without Elise. It’s not just that she provides structure and accountability – she becomes your champion. She genuinely wants to see you succeed. She’s helped me feel powerful and confident – and I know it’s only a matter of time before my dream of saying goodbye to my day jobs and making 100% of my income as an actor becomes a reality."
If you learned a TON inside The Dream Big, Plan Smart Challenge and are craving ongoing strategy and personalized coaching to help you Work as An Audiobook Narrator + Find Balance with the rest of your acting career, then...
It’s time to ask yourself:
If the answer is YES, then you’re in the right place because
The Momentum Club is now enrolling.
"If I had not been made aware of and then took the step to work with Elise, I would not be in the position I am in now. For the first time in my life, I am a working voice actor, having just signed on to voice three audiobooks for a local publisher. Next week I'll be recording a video game demo with a world renowned demo producer. Neither of these things would have happened had I not been working with Elise. I have worked with other business coaches and marketing coaches over the past 4 years or so and literally nothing changed. There was no forward movement. I'm not saying their techniques won't work for anyone, but they didn't work for me. Elise brought support, validation, connection and real concrete "Go and do THIS" instructions that were actionable, logical and showed measurable results. Working with Elise has made a huge difference."
“Before I worked with Elise, I felt clueless about the steps I could take to advance my career beyond training vigorously in an acting class. I was no doubt a passionate artist, but I felt stuck due to a lack of knowledge about the business of acting.
With Elise's guidance, I learned very quickly that the success of my career is within my own power.
Through each session, she gracefully and compassionately helped me to clarify specifc goals and actions, which empowered me to grow beyond my former comfort zone to achieve more. Before working with Elise, I believed that I had to move to L.A. ASAP in order to advance my TV/film career; since working in Power Group, I've booked my first two co-stars in my current location!”
I get it: You are an actor interested in A LOT of things but have difficulty focusing on just one. I will help you define what it is you really want, among your narration and other acting goals so that together we can determine where you'll focus this year and how you will specifically and consistently work towards one goal. By achieving goal after goal, you will grow the career that you most desire, and will likely be surprised along the way!
Did you know that you are 9 times more likely to achieve a goal if you invest in accountability like working with a career coach? With three opportunities to connect each month, you will have the ability to check in with me VERY CONSISTENTLY and ask for specific accountability so that you can finally push through whatever has held you back in the past (technology, comfort, not knowing how to get there), so you can can actually hit the acting + life goals that you want most.
There are A LOT of options out there when it comes to building your career as an actor. What makes the Global Actor special is that we don't let our zipcode define us. We move forward through our plan with curiosity and a willingness to see what's in front of us right now, enjoying the process and ultimately looking back on the big strides we've made. Because I don't allow a ton of excuses, you'll notice you're surrounded by other hard-working actors who believe big things are possible, which makes it easy for you to practice a positive mindset.
If you want big success, you've got to be working on your actions AND strategy consistently, and adjusting as necessary. It doesn't just happen unless you
PRIORITIZE it and WORK THOSE MUSCLES.
