Elevate Your Career with Environment, Not Effort

WARNING:
This workshop is not just going to pump sunshine up your butt.

I understand it’s frustrating right now, and a lot of actors are quitting. That’s not me, and that’s definitely not you.

During this Workshop, you’re going to learn where you can take control to see results and walk away with:

 

  1. A true understanding of the Gold Medal Role philosophy that landed me the role
    You’ll learn how to apply this to your own brand and I’ll even share the BTS of my self-tape.
  2. A free 10-minute tool I used to build a bigger social following.
    One big reason I got the offer came down to my social media presence, which didn’t happen by accident. I’ll show EXACTLY what I did to kickstart that growth when no one knew who I was.
  3. Bonus! You’ll also learn the super strategic method behind Headshots that BOOK.
    This is the same strategy our student, Que, used to book a $71k acting gig.

Before you grab a spot for this class, you need to know that I’m not going to waste your time by pretending we aren’t in the middle of two strikes. Times feel tough for many of us.

But you are not an actor who will simply sit and wait until the strike is over. Neither am I. No. Let’s take control where we can, so you can gain momentum and be ahead of the curve when things do finally get back to normal.

 

Your Workshop will run for about 55 minutes PLUS we’ve reserved time at the end for direct, personalized feedback from me (Jona) during the Q&A!

Is Your Brand Bookable Enough to Seize Opportunities Like This?

Jona Xiao with Chris Evans

When I would ask my reps why I wasn’t getting many auditions, they would suggest I take new headshots. So, I kept doing that. And sometimes I would see an uptick in my auditions, only to feel crushed that I was barely getting any callbacks or bookings.

I learned the hard way that Branding is a comprehensive process. Just going around and asking your friends how they “see you” or paying someone to “typecast” you doesn’t cut it.

After I applied the The Stand-Out System to my own career, I finally broke into TV! Since then, I’ve booked 40+ TV and Film credits.

 

I’m excited to introduce you to The Stand-Out System so you can understand all the moving parts to a bookable Brand to get on the short list.

Is it okay to work during the strike?

In short…YES! There are lots of commercial, VO, and theatre projects that are unstruck work and nearly 400 Interim Agreements (and counting) allowing actors to work on TV and film projects.

“The interim agreement provides empirical proof that the terms that we have put on the table with the AMPTP are not only realistic, but are actually desirable and usable by producers in this industry.”
