Very well done show

I love the tactical, honest and real rawness Alison delivers in this podcast. I hit subscribe and definitely can’t wait for the next show!!!

For that listener that is ADDICTED to creating their future. For the listener who KNOWS they are destined for greatness but didn’t believe they could actually make money in it.

Thoughtful and Real

Allison has a soothing and friendly voice, and her guests aren’t afraid to talk about the challenges/triumphs/lessons of being in this field. I mean this in the best way possible: this is the kind of show that would scare anyone who just nonchalantly thought they’d go out and be a successful actor overnight. But it’s the kind of show that will inspire the hard working actor who just feels like they haven’t gotten their break yet. Hopefully it would affirm them of what they’re doing right, and encourage them to take some different actions.

Love it. Can’t wait for Season 2!
