Lead Your Career with the Curiosity + Systems You Need
to Thrive as an Artist + Stay Organized in Your Biz,
Momentum Club members and other #GlobalActors
gather at in-person event in Los Angeles.
So often we have good intentions:
we create a plan,
but we lack the
Our dreams are typically the first
to get put to the side when life calls.
It doesn't have to be all or nothing, though.
There is a way for you to achieve the
creative success you want
AND enjoy your life.
But you may need a little help to get there.
And that's cool, cause we all need
"I was going to do my own audiobook project because I was tired of waiting on someone to hire me. I was just going to do my own book, like a public domain book, so that I could just go ahead and do a book. And that's when I joined Momentum Club, in May, continuing as an active member after that. And y'all, I don't know what it is. It's energy, it's swirls. It's so good! I've been booked since May.
And Momentum Club is helping me actually figure out my schedule because now, all of a sudden, I'm also booking on camera work. So I actually had to figure out how to do my schedule. Elise has really, really helped me figure out how to schedule in my self-care so that I'm able to do everything, and I'm also able to tell people what I want to do. There's just something about it! There's something about the clarity gained that has really helped me grow and sustain.
I’ve completed 10 wonderful audiobooks in less than seven months and I serve as a Global Actor Community Mentor. Elise as my coach and the Momentum Club community are just the boost I needed to get on track to where I want to be and stay there."
"I started The Great Audiobook Adventure at the end of 2019. And then right after that hopped into the Momentum Club, because even though the steps were right there, as you're going through it, you just have all these very special questions that pop up that you weren't thinking of. And I always learned so much from just listening to other people's questions and their coaching. And it always motivated me after a call.
My progress has been really great, thanks to Elise. And since I joined, I had one book under my belt and I'm recording my 20th right now and have already booked my 23rd. So I'm just really excited and yeah, it's been really great."
Janna is working on her 2nd audiobook because of the tools and structure she learned inside The Great Audiobook Adventure combined with the ongoing accountability and strategy she has found in Momentum Club.

"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 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.

I get it: You are an actor interested in A LOT of things but have difficulty focusing on just one. Momentum Club 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 myself + our Community Mentors 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 #GlobalActors 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 we 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 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!”
