"The Business of Acting 101 was amazing. It was more than a 101. It was more like a graduate course from two experts in the business. I call it an A to Z workshop. They did everything for us except sign our next contract on our next booking." - Wit Ostrenko


"As a newbie to acting, the Acting Business 101 class was a lifesaver. I avoided so many pitfalls and learned how to submit myself for roles, find an agent, take a great head shot, general professionalism and so much more. I'm now a professional actress, and the course definitely prepared me for that journey." - Janet Butts

"The Acting Business 101 Workshop is filled with invaluable information! It would normally take many years of acting experience to be exposed to the content they have put together. Andi and Karleigh do an amazing job presenting all this information, and make it an enjoyable eight hours! I highly recommend it!" -  Carrie Humberger

"This workshop was worth every penny. I can’t wait to start my journey!  Again, thank you so much for making this workshop possible!" - Bella Mangiafico
