The Village Mastermind gave me instant access to a group of creatives who offered support, strategy, accountability and concrete to-dos to keep me moving in the next best direction. In three months, I was more on top of my career and made more tangible forward progress than I had in a long time. If you're looking to level up with the guidance of two experienced professionals (the one-on-one strategy sessions are amazing), plus a group of creatives who will encourage you and hold you accountable, this program is it!"         Leandra Terrazzano / Actress / Writer

Mastermind was a good push to get organized and turn my attention to projects where I needed some feedback, like redoing my reel. I'm still meeting with my accountability partner a year later!   - Lesley Tsina / Actress / Writer
