Do you ever feel like you are super busy yet not moving your career forward as fast as you'd like?
If so this week's video is for you.
A few week's back I invited Charlotte to join us for a Hot Seat Coaching inside the #GlobalActors FB Group. Talk about an actor who GETS THINGS DONE-- you may have seen Charlotte playing Kate Mara's mom in last summer's Chappaquiddick, she also runs her own puppetry company, creates original theatre programming and more. I saw that she was feeling a bit frustrated working on her multiple goals & passions and not seeing as much forward momentum as she'd like. I knew that other #GlobalActors out there could benefit from this conversation so we decided to make the coaching public.
Take a few moments out of your busy schedule just for you and your career, grab a tea or coffee, settle in and take in this conversation!
She's done so much this past year, am I right?! If you can relate to any of what Charlotte was experiencing and would like to gain more clarity and vision in your acting goals and finally experience lasting success in your acting career, you are warmly invited to join me for:
"Dream Big, Plan Smart", A 5-Day Global Actor Challenge!
November 5-9, 2018
When you complete the challenge you'll have:
1) A living vision for life & career 5 years from today
2) A time-bound, specific one year goal
3) 3-5 personalized mantras to keep you active & in forward momentum
4) The beginnings of a 2019 Action Plan
5) Support from a community of actors to help you feel connected & accountable!
Hope you'll join us and invite a few other actors you admire to take part, too!
If you are feeling motivated to dive in and make your closet your favorite spot in your home, be sure to get in on Jeannie's upcoming Capsule Wardrobe course, which begins in just a few days, click here and remember to use code ELISE for 10% off. (Code can also be used for consultations!)
And leave a comment below on how you are currently feeling about your closet!
How often do you think about the colors you wear? When heading to an audition, networking event, getting your headshots done, or anywhere else in daily life do you struggle with "what to wear"?
I’d always heard that “blue makes you pop onscreen”. Also that “black is slimming and looks good on anyone”. While these colors may work well for many people, according to my recent color consultation, there is really only like one specific shade of blue that looks good on me, and my best colors are actually greens, browns, plums, etc. Most blues & black wash me out :)
For my birthday this year I gifted myself a color consultation with the Color Guru herself, Jeannie Stith-Mawhinney, and am so glad that I made the investment!
Jeannie helped me get clear on what colors don’t work for me, highlighted those that make me glow (including gold vs silver jewelry) and shared fabulous resources (including makeup & color card) which have made shopping, and getting ready every day SO much easier!
As an actor, it is VITAL that we feel confident in every room we walk into, which is why I’ve invited Jeannie to share her mission with The Global Actor Community via a conversation on “How Color Can Boost Your Confidence (& Acting Career!).
Listen in on our chat here--- Jeannie shares her #1 Key to Looking Better, Feeling more Beautiful AND also simplifying your wardrobe!
Check it out!
If this video has you curious about YOUR colors, you’ll definitely want to check out Jeannie’s upcoming Capsule Wardrobe Course which INCLUDES the same kind of personal consultation I had! Find that here, and don’t forget to use Promo Code: ELISE for 10% Off!
