Kept me ALIVE and Working during the Pandemic!
Actor CEO not only got me through the pandemic, but also kept me in the mindset to stay hopeful, creative, and productive (not in the sense of needing to grind, but in what fed my soul). I was able to keep up with meaningful projects and even book work, and I honestly could not have done it without going to church every week (aka listening to Actor CEO). I can't thank Mike and his guests enough.
This podcast is NEVER preachy; it is incredibly relatable regardless of where you are in your career. Everyone on the show has invaluable lessons from their experiences, and come from varying levels of career. I’ve re-listened to episodes and found new gems simply because that day I was in a different mind/body space.
And special shout out to Ricardo Birnbaum who was a guest. I loved everything he had to say in his episode, booked him, and have very honestly NEVER had a better session or better shots.
Binge Worthy Podcast!!
Thank you SO MUCH for this amazing podcast not just on acting, but in how to run our business as actors and storytellers.
I started listening to your podcast in November and have binge listened everyday and am about to start episode 126!
The resources are so valuable. I’ve doubled my IG followers since taking the easy steps outlined in many of your podcasts. In addition, I’ve reached out to many of your guests just to say thank you for their interview and in return, have begun to develop relationships with knowledgeable people in this industry.
I’ve INVESTED in my business, I’ve PROMOTED my write ups and film releases and Ive CELEBRATED my recent nomination with all of my fans on IG.
Really, really, really looking forward to what’s to come in 2021! Thanks Mike!!

A few gems past the mansplaining
I’ve been wanting to enjoy this podcast. There are some great guests on here (Wendy Braun, Kristina Horan, Greg Bekkers are some interviews that I liked).
But unlike journalistic interviewers, the convo always leads to how Mike has been speaking the truth for years or his community already knows this stuff and he then explains what the guest is on there already explaining. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes it’s a back and forth conversation - but a lot of it is just a regurgitation of what the guest just said....
