POWER UP YOUR CAREER
When his schedule permits, award-winning actor, acting coach and creator of Master Your Audition, Benson Simmonds offers his groundbreaking 6-week Kick Butt goal-setting and marketing workshop for actors and performers called POWER UP YOUR CAREER!
When you ask most actors what they goals are, they almost all reply saying, ‘I just want to work1″ This is precisely why so many actors spend years being frustrated and fail to create the career of their dreams. In order to succeed every actor needs to have a focused, specific and individualized marketing strategy.
Contrary to what you may have heard, in Hollywood it’s NOT about who you know, but WHAT YOU KNOW.
You need to know
1) who you are as an actor and what makes you unique
2) what specific TV shows or films you can CONTRIBUTE to the most and why!
3) how to develop a fun strategy to to build and maintain relationships with the people who can hire you.
For over 15 years, Benson Simmonds has been successfully motivating actors to channel their passion and creativity to achieve clear measurable career goals, and yes, even have FUN in the process.
Science has proven that most people don’t follow through….UNLESS THEY ARE HELD ACCOUNTABLE! That’s why POWER UP YOUR CAREER is designed as a one-day workshop followed by another 5 consecutive weekday evenings. Each week you will have specific tasks or dream career actions to do and you will be accountable to Benson and the group to report your progress. Knowing that each week you will check in with someone who cares. provides you the ongoing encouragement to make things happen. You’ll also be assigned a dream big goal buddy, someone with whom you will check in daily and someone who will also hold you accountable.
Why is Power Up Your Career specifically 6 weeks? Because science has demonstrated that it takes 40 days to change a habit. Over the 6 weeks, Benson will help you develop fun, effective new habits to help you take consistent action daily and jump start the career of your dreams.
