Meet Jona

Jona and Gal Gadot

Jona & Gal Gadot at their movie premiere

I’m Jona Xiao and I JUST wrapped on a network TV series as a top-of-show Guest Star & filmed the lead in a film comedy with the help of my direct connections. And my reps will be the first to tell you that my personal connections help me book jobs.

And I wouldn’t even call myself a great ‘networker.’ I used to think it was sleazy, so I’d focus on pay-to-play workshops. That rarely paid off and left me feeling like an outsider.
 
I know exactly how exhausting it feels to work so hard as an actor, only to be disappointed by the lack of auditions you get. And when the auditions do come, it often seems like they already know who they want for the role. It sucks until YOU are the person that they want before they even watch the other auditions.

And that’s because you’ve built the industry relationships beforehand. My students and I have seen huge breakthroughs happen when we switched from being an audition-chaser (constantly looking for the next audition) into a relationship-builder. This has led to so many more direct offers & work.
 
As actors, we have more control than we think and I want to teach you exactly what it takes to build your network and do it in a way that’s authentic for you.
 
You won’t believe what opportunities arise when you truly get known by the right people. Which is something any actor can do regardless of your resume, your reps (or lack thereof), or who you’re related to ;-).
 
I love feeling like my career is really in my OWN hands because of the tools and strategies I’m empowered with. And I’m excited to share these tools with you inside Direct Offers: 3 Ways To Skip The Audition & Book Work On Your OWN.

Class will run for about 55 minutes plus time for a Q&A at the end.
This is your chance to get direct feedback from Jona.

“My first coffee meeting offered to introduce me to their top contact without me asking; after taking Jona’s advice from the webinar, I was able to set up a coffee meeting with the filmmaker from the festival I was trying to speak with!”
