You, the Career // Workshop

Don’t just book a job. Light a fire under your career.

Life as a professional actor is unlike any other professional life. Navigating a competitive industry, maintaining an artistic practice, and developing the resilience and character needed to keep yourself in the game take practice.

For the first time, we’re opening our comprehensive career approach to actors outside of our studio.

DO NOT WAIT. Workshops book up fast and are limited to 10 participants each.

Seriously, reach out to us now or browse our upcoming events.


Based on the top-selling book You, the Career, this is the only comprehensive career approach to be hosted by SAG/AFTRA, and is the most in-depth approach to an actor’s career available in Hollywood. Developed by one of LA’s most sought-after acting teachers and cultural innovators Benjamin Mathes, this 4-week, professional class will challenge, liberate, and ground you in your most valuable asset—you.

This workshop is for anyone who wants to thrive in one of the most challenging industries in the world.

Collaborate with fellow actors in a nurturing, small-group setting to examine the Corporate Economy mindset responsible for an actor’s deepest blocks and to develop a Creative Economy mindset to unlock your career potential and build the career you want without losing the person you are.
