Just SOME of Career ACTivate’s Success Stories:

Tanjareen Thomas

Generating Major Auditions On My Own

“Before I joined the Career ACTivate Elite Coaching program, I hadn’t had an audition, a union theatrical audition, in probably over a year. Now that I’ve learned ninja strategies, [in just a month of being in the program] I’ve auditioned for network series regular roles for pilots and huge hit network shows and I just really feel in control of my career. It’s really, really exciting and it’s very powerful for me. My reps are just like, ‘Oh, you got another audition! Have you heard of this show?’ You know, and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I know. I got myself that audition. Can you just pass the information on to me?’ They’re happy. They’re excited. They love actors that take their careers into their own hands.”

~ Tanjareen Thomas


Jenna Doolittle

Choice of Reps & Priceless Relationships

“My career is YEARS ahead of where it would be because of Career ACTivate! If you are serious about making a long lasting career as an actor, Career ACTivate is more than worth it! The information I’ve received and the relationships I’ve cultivated is truly priceless to me.”

~ Jenna Doolittle

American Horror Story, Scandal, Guiding Light



“Joining Career ACTivate has been a major game changer for me in my career. I entered Career ACTivate with no representation and only auditioning once a month. Through the program, I put together super effective marketing materials, learned to self-pitch, and landed one of the best agents in town. I now audition 2-3 times a week! I have learned so many helpful tools that I use regularly with success. I feel like an empowered actor because of Career ACTivate. If you want to be a working actor, join Career ACTive! Thank you Jona and everyone at CA!”

~ Hilaria Larriva

Olivia Scott

100% Confident

“After taking the agent program, I now have many new and effective ways of getting theatrical representation. Before I was unsure exactly how to target getting an agent but I am now 100% confident I have the right tools. There are so many actors in LA that you need to stand out to even get an agent. It doesn’t matter how much talent you have if you don’t have the business tools to back it up, and Jona shows you those tools!”

~ Olivia Scott

Rayman Jilani

15+ Major Auditions Without An Agent

“I just moved to LA two months ago, and since doing this course, I’ve gotten myself 15 auditions, including Fox film and producer’s callback for a major CBS film,and networking a few times a week now…all this while being non-union and with no agent, something people told me was ‘impossible’.”

~ Rayman Jilani

W Cameron Tucker

2 Direct Bookings

“Because of the knowledge and techniques that I learned in Jona’s workshop, I was able to completely re-think how I went about getting acting jobs. Through my new approach, I was able to connect with a director who had several significant projects in the works…and I was offered a role in both of his upcoming projects and will be filming in Italy for one of them! No audition!!! I’m a believer of Jona’s techniques.”

~ W. Cameron Tucker

Brian Chin

20+ Meeting Requests From Agents & Managers

“Using Jona’s innovative and cutting-edge tools, I have over 20+ requests for meetings from agents and managers that I truly wanted to work with (ex. Gersh, Paradigm, Innovative Artists, etc.), with ZERO IMDb credits. We generated a target list and creatively packaged my submission to stand out amongst the rest.”

~ Brian Chin

It was very nerve-wracking at first, but when I reached out to the first person I already felt at ease. Each call became easier. They’re people too!”

“Before Career ACTivate, I was in this lost situation where I had my materials, I was happy to with my reel and all that, but I wasn’t sure…what am I suppose to do everyday, not just submit on LA Casting Actors Access.  My girlfriend found Jona on a FB group and we joined the program…I probably wouldn’t have had an agent without Career ACTivate.  I probably wouldn’t have the wherewithal to be so forthcoming when I’m on set…I’m now on 9 episodes and counting on the Freeform show GOOD TROUBLE!”

From Oversaturated Category To MY Unique Brand

“I really loved this program! I’m in a tough category (white female actress in late 20s), so I feel as if no matter how talented I am, the market is so over saturated with my type, that I just won’t have doors opening for me. However, this program has lit a creative fire within me that I haven’t felt in years–maybe ever. I recommend this program for all actors who are feeling stuck!”

My career is about to explode…Do you really want to look back when you are 80 or 90 years old and think to yourself, “Why didn’t I do that when I had the opportunity?” Because life’s short, you only get one life…Live your dreams and go for it!

Jona’s Virtual Programs Are The BEST!

“Jona’s virtual programs are the best in the industry. Those programs were more career changing for me than any in-person coaching or class I have attended. They will save you thousands of dollars in classes and will shave off years of wasted time, effort, and money. Jona will guide you through audio and video lessons and then you’ll be given a series of action steps to take to achieve your specific goals. You’ll have a system to rely on to stay on track until your goals are achieved. You won’t feel alone or that you’re left with just a bunch of concepts in your head after you’re done with a class as most coaches in L.A. do. This is not a one time quick fix but a long term plan to get you where you need to be.”
