Between the courses and the live Pop Ups, I feel amazed at all the resources I am getting for such an affordable price. I am so thankful for this membership - more than anything, I truly believe it is allowing me to work SMARTER. The MINE YOUR SCRIPT course in particular has been a game changer!”

Nina Concepcion from LA / 9-1-1 Lone Star, Shining Vale, and more.

“Anna and Alyshia are so incredibly insightful. I can honestly say that this membership has really made me excited to do self-tapes. I didn't necessarily feel that way before and sometimes, loathed anytime I got a self-tape request because I preferred the room. Now, I am really really looking forward to seeing what happens with my self tapes and career in the future because of the knowledge I've picked up here. Thank you both a million times over. ”

Charles Maceo from LA / Big Little Lies, S.W.A.T

“This community helps keep me focused and feel connected — so important to me especially since so much about the industry has changed in the last few years! Thank you both for doing what you do. ”

Rita Marchelya from LA / As The World Turns

I would have never been able to see as much growth as I did in 2022 without taking advantage of the resources made available to me through my membership. Previously I was uncomfortable getting help from my peers who were so much further up the staircase. I failed to realize that it was a safe space to learn and grow.”

Leslie Adlam from Canada / Slumberland, Locke & Key, and more.

“Anna and Alyshia are a fantastic partnership that play well to supporting the creative spirit of their members yet calling out and steering talent with love. I have more growing pains than others and yet appreciate and honor the honest performance feedback. The feedback is gold filled with direct truth and heart. Anna and Alyshia are close to the industry and have offered nothing less than solid direction. I have yet to be disappointed with their monthly guest speakers and coaching. I love being on the east coast and having the ability to tap into the L.A. ins and outs. It’s a god send that I can still practice the craft and get direction whether on or off set. This is the dreamy one stop shop. Quality coaching and learning at my own pace/schedule all at an affordable price.

Yasmine Ryback from Chicago/ Monarch

I’ve never been more inspired to work on bettering myself as an actor and as an artist. The mindset cultivated by this program and community has me enjoying every step of this process. ”

Eli Santana from LA / Pam and Tommy, Grace & Frankie, West World, and more.

Love this community! I'm making the most out of the courses, live content, and community. I truly love what is being built. The transparency is so necessary--now that almost everything is remote. The kindness/mentally healthy environment that all of you offer, and the support/updates have been a lifeline during these times!”

Denisse Ojeda / Single Parents (ABC), The Conners, and more.

“I must say your Find Your Light lighting course, Content is Confidence character building course PLUS the Self-Tape May classes have totally changed my tapes! I've got a direct booking from my tape and have been pinned and sent to producers multiple times since starting this membership. I'm SO grateful to you Anna and Alyshia. You lead, you inspire, you uplift, you give so much!”

Brooke McCormick from LA / Bosch
