Are you bored waiting for the phone to ring?
Frustrated that your acting career is not at the level you want it to be?
You have come to the right place...
This not going to teach you how to act or remember lines.
But will support you through the BUSINESS of being an actor!
You were meant to read this...
I'm Nicky and I have been in the industry for over 25 years. I am an actor, writer, speaker and coach.
Plus I have also been an agent for 5 years, written for The Stage and the resident monthly columnist for Surviving Actors.
In short, I have experienced this industry in a big way.
I meet many actors at various stages of their career and no matter how 'successful' he or she is, the most common question I hear is 'I don't know what to do'
There is a sense as an actor that you are in limbo...waiting for phone to ring, hoping your agent will open doors for you and then crossing all your fingers (and toes) that you will get the job.
If you have been feeling a little lost or things have been quiet or just want to put yourself back in the drivers' seat of your career, this is the toolkit for you.
I created this toolkit because I haven't found it yet.
Over the years, there have been many times where I have felt confused, disheartened and deflated.
The months have gone by with no contact with my agent and even more time since I got a job.
I began to doubt myself. To question my ability. To seriously consider 'giving up my dreams' and heading over to the world of sensible jobs, reliable incomes and slightly gross office wear.
But I have kept going. Why? Because I know I am supposed to do this. Because I love it.
What is it?
This is a toolkit packed full of videos, audios, pdfs and workbooks
(plus lots of surprise bonuses along the way) to help you create the career you have always dreamed off.
We will cover the practical elements in detail; the headshots, the castings, the auditions, your portfolio, agents,
earning money, your brand etc.
But we are going in deep.
I will help you to create a strategy that you can easily follow. I don't offer a one size fits all method.
This is about you; your personality and your version of success.
I know you have enough going on outside of acting so I will be sharing ways you can work smartly not just hard and help you to be time and money effective.
I am going to be helping you with your mindset, your confidence and sharing tried and tested techniques that you can use to quickly snap into 'I've got this' even when you don't feel you have.
Finally connecting the dots and sharing all my behind the scenes knowledge...
stuff as the actor you usually have no idea about. I will cover how to best work with you agent, how to open the 'right' doors' for you and how to get AMAZING RESULTS

2) The money course
Don't worry you are not the only one...
Guess what most actors want to talk me about? Shakespeare? More auditions? How to talk about to their agent without feeling scared/confused?
Yep, that is usually how it the conversation starts (btw I am definitely not the person to talk to about Shakespeare!) but there is always a deeper layer.
Underneath there is usually a money conversation; questions about logistics.
How do I make this work?
Be available for auditions but having a steady income?
Have a flexible job but one that doesn't make it feel like I am selling my soul and giving up on my creative dream.
Finding a way that I can run my acting career and 'the in-between bits' simultaneously; with ease, with no stress and still feel good and ready for the next acting opportunity.
In this course, I help you to create a full, abundant and flexible working life alongside your acting career. I know many actors have these types of thought:
' Is this all worth it? I am poor, stressed, miserable and don't feel like I am where I am supposed to be in life'.
' I hate this job... why I am still here...?' Clues were in the dread of going in every morning, a constant slightly angry face and a lack of motivation, purpose and energy.
'I am losing at life. Not only is my acting career not happening, I am stuck in this rubbish situation. Not only do I feel like am a loser but all my other mates seem to have it figured out...fancy holidays to Thailand, buying 'grown up' houses, daily casual social media brags 'Yay, look at my new bag #blessed' Grrr!
'I am at the point where I feel like I am backed into a corner. I can't leave my job as it pays my bills so I am dreading my agent saying I have an audition (let alone the job) because I can't get the time off and I NEED to pay the bills.
Any of that sound familiar?
Yep. You are not the only one. But that can change. You just have to decide. I did and this is what happened.
Here is what happened:
Very quickly I quadrupled my day rate and I only say 'yes' to the work I love. (Even though it felt scary at first)
I set my own hours and projects.
I increased my output... I got very focused and stopped messing about and playing small.
I got an acting job within a week and filmed a week later
Last year I had my most successful acting year yet
Then two months later my partner and I were lucky enough to become pregnant ... so with a little person (a not so little person these days!) on the way I knew I had to make it work and I have.
The exciting news is, you can do this too...
This course will show you how. It isn't a 'network marketing opportunity' or a 'Get rich quick' scheme. Far from it. This is all about you; your talents, skills, knowledge and expertise and how you can use what you have already to make a living and a comfortable living at that!
What you will gain:
OPTIONS. I want to show you there is another way. Perfect if you are feeling stuck, confused, disheartened and 'poor' in all or some aspects of your life.
CLARITY. As actors we can sometimes gloss over the 'money stuff'. This course will help you to get laser focused, streamlined and smart with your money and your time.
Practical solutions. This is not a 'one size fits all' issue that needs solving. My coaching expertise will help you to find your version of success
The clue is in the URL 'acting career', this is about making your acting career sustainable and profitable so you can continue, thrive and be the best at what you do.
More auditions, acting jobs and money. If you can figure out the 'behind the scenes / in-between contracts' stuff, it will have an amazing and surprising effect on how successful your acting career will be.
3) The confidence course
Rejections, near misses and big old silences where absolutely nothing is happening can play havoc with your confidence levels. Don't worry, I've got you.
In general, we know what we want; our hopes, our dreams, our goals. You know what is on your wish list.
Yet sometimes we don't take action...
I wrote this structure of this confidence course many years ago and since then shared in various forms to hundreds of people in a live setting and I am excited to share an online version.
Self doubt, limiting beliefs and old stories keep us small. They stop us from moving forward, from truly stepping into who and what we want to be.
A lack of confidence has delayed my own progression; at school, when I moved to London, during my work as an actor, when I started my business, when I became a mother...
I'm sure it is something that I will always have to work on. Most human beings do.
This is not a blue print of 'How to increase confidence' i.e. Stick a smile on your face and 'be positive'.
Building confidence is not a one size fits solution...
This course is going to help your create your own version in a way that feels good to you.
By the end of the course you are going to have your own set of tools that are going to boost your confidence and help you move forward.
I'm sure you are a busy person who wants to do brilliant things. You may not have the time or the inclination to go to a fortnight long retreat in the middle of nowhere to 'work on yourself'.
In fact just reading that last statement makes me feel a little indulgent.
You just need some tools to help you get out of your own way. To move pass doubts, to quieten down the negative commitment (who are probably a bit gobby) in your head.
If you want to make some changes in your life; go to the next level, start a business, shake things up you need this course first.
It will help you achieve your goals quicker in a way that suits you.
I know you are going to love it.
