Where was this course when we dove head first into this industry about 18 months ago? My son was 9 at the time and “child actor” was something I had never really considered...and then, not only did I have that, I was a stage parent! I knew NOTHING! I scoured every resource I could find, reached out to everyone and anyone I knew (or didn’t know) that may be able to answer questions. I leached on to some wonderful, helpful woman and asked them question after question and we gaining our bearings as we found our way. If I had this course on day one I would have been well informed in a day....as all of the information that took me hundreds of hours to compile on my own was given in an organized, efficient and entertaining manner! Best of all, all of the information is ACCURATE! I really enjoyed the interviews with the respected professionals that have held positions in the industry for years. What an amazing gift for a new stage parent or a parent that is trying to determine if the entertainment industry is a good fit before taking the plunge. I am ready for Part 2!-Kate Bergman
What I loved about going through this course, is this is something I can point people to, to beat the learning curve, to not have to waste time or money or be fed a lot of misinformation that’s out there on the internet & to have a place where they can get advice from Parents who have already gone through the things that they’re going through...Casting Directors, Agents, Managers, people in PR...I’m so excited now to point people in the direction of this.My favorite part was to see all of the real world examples & life stories that were woven into each Module. I loved hearing different aspects of it from different points of view & I'm just really impressed!Great job you guys!-Victoria Masters
I get asked every single week, multiple times, how to get started & no matter how thorough I am, I always feel like I come up short & have not given my friends enough information about how to get started.This course covers it all!If you see something in your kid that you think maybe is something a little special & they could do this industry, this is the course for you.Even if you’ve been in this for 2 years like I have...There are so many cool things that I’ve learned, that I would have never otherwise known.For instance...what Casting Directors think, what they’re looking for, what they expect from your kids...that kind of stuff is not easy to come by.So I highly recommend this Course whether you’re brand new, whether you’re thinking about starting, or whether your kids have booked things like Netflix & other Feature Films, like myself, you will still learn something amazing from this course.Great job Kelly & Erin! This was awesome!-Timie Yancey
I loved hearing from the Industry Pros. I also enjoyed hearing from the Child Actors & their Parents.This will be my go-to resource when people ask me what steps they should take to get their children into the TV & Film Industry.It’s also a wealth of information for Parents like me who have already taken the first couple of steps, but are still trying to figure things out. We’re still in the early stages & really gives us good direction & hear things to do & not to do.One of my favorite Modules was the “How to Be” Module where it talked about things that you should and should not do when you’re taking your child for Interviews & Auditions.Thank you ladies so much for this information, thank you for sharing your experience. This is something that's going to help a lot of people.-Julie Wescott

"Erin is one of the finest actresses I have worked with. She is one of the few that brings great creativity to any project while still honoring the writing and the directors vision. She is a pleasure to direct, but even more a pleasure to watch her work!"~Brian Beegle, Casting Director
Hi! I'm ErinFor many years, I've lived with less than the average American. My senior year of college, my apartment burned down from an accident caused by a neighbor. I lost everything I owned & was in burn treatment for a month.While I wouldn't wish that on anyone, it began shifting my perspective on material things.In a consumerism culture like ours, I would buy things out of impulse or want, but rarely out of need.In 2017, I found Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up & my journey to living with even less began.Decluttering has become a lifestyle now & I want others to feel the same peace & calm in their homes as I feel in mine every day.I'm an actress, singer, & avid hiker. I have time to work on creative projects because my home is always in order.I hope you'll consider letting me help you as you embark on a more intentional way of living, the way you've always wanted to live.
