It’s called Show Business,

Not Show Art!

There are a ton of coaches and classes and training in the area of your art and craft and you need to take them!  However, if you’re not spending just as much time on your BUSINESS, no one will ever get the opportunity to see your art.

Add to that your desire to MAKE MONEY ACTING and, believe you me, you’re gonna want a coach!  As evidenced by the many actors who leave this industry yearly (about 97% of those who enter it and within 3 years) I know that lack of talent is NOT the cause.

As both an actress and a business woman, I get how difficult it can be to pursue a career, especially when you’re overwhelmed and don’t know which step to take next. Working with me can make the difference between a long drawn out  hit and miss process OR quick results with purpose, ease and joy!  Learn from MY mistakes instead, as well as from my background as a performer, entrepreneur, industry insider and motivator of thousands and thousands of actors. Here’s to your amazing and deserved success!

Do you have questions like:

  • How do I know if my headshot is really good/works for me?
  • How do I find more paying acting work?
  • How can I get an agent and/or manager interested in me?
  • How do I get attention from casting directors if I don’t have a rep?
  • How can I follow up effectively and get the attention my talent deserves?
  • How can I parlay my latest booking in to more bookings?
  • Can you help me find the best agencies that take my level of background, skill and resume credits?
  • Who are the top casting directors for film? TV? Theater? What production companies or theater companies are OK to work with for free to build my resume?
  • What kind of research could I do that will lead me to more work and contacts?
  • Are there any insider secrets to getting ahead in this business?

My answer to all of these questions begins with the same answer: There’s NO QUICK FIX and the key to the growth and development of a career (not just getting a job) is to focus your time, energy and efforts on the right kinds of consistent activities that YOU will do. Not anyone else. It might be hard at the beginning but with time and habit, it will become a part of who you are, thus a STAR is BORN.

Just like an athlete wouldn’t think of training for the Olympics or a great quarterback wouldn’t get on the field without a coach to guide, support, and challenge them to be their best, YOU having a mentor or coach provides you with the edge you need to go from being good to being great; to tap into your full potential and take you from where you are right now to where you want to be.

Even when you can’t see it for yourself, having a coach who can get and keep you motivated, lead you through the hard times, acknowledge you for your greatness and inspire you to work harder is ESSENTIAL.  I wouldn’t be where I am today without many coaches, past and present.  I am able to be, do, and have what I do today ONLY because I have powerful mentors and coaches in many areas of my life.

Benefits of coaching with me include:

  • Getting clarity of what you offer and exact actions to help you reach your professional goals
  • Focusing of your time, energy and efforts on the right kinds of activities that will move you in the direction you want to go QUICKLY
  • You’ll tap into your full potential and take you from where you are now to where you want to be with less struggle and more ease
  • Gain knowledge of exactly who’s who in the industry and develop your contacts, relationships and network
  • Acknowledgement from an energetic cheerleader who always has your back, no matter what, on the roller coaster ride of your acting career

Pricing and Programs

In Person ONE on ONE with Lisa Gold  (Los Angeles)$750 for Half Day
(5 Hours and lunch) in Person. 
Socially Distant and Mask Required. 

Work directly, privately, and face to face for those wanting personal attention and needing guidance in all areas of show business. Topics covered are of your choosing but can include everything from resume formatting to better positioning yourself for consistent paid work, or how to better attract the right agent and exactly what to say in cover letters/notes. If needed I’ll make recommendations for the best photographers to reflect your brand and define what you uniquely have to offer the marketplace as well as who to specifically target in a mailing campaign. It’s time to tailor a marketing effort to better show what you uniquely have to offer and have all your questions answered in a constructive, safe to ask, environment. Private coaching is for those who want the best of the best from themselves and for themselves.

Dates are currently available Los Angeles only at this time.  If out of the area, please see the Virtual option to the right.


I have met with Lisa twice in person for private coaching. I wish I could see her and listen to her wise words every single day. She is an incredibly bright, warm, and charming person and knows exactly what advice or plan of action to offer by really listening to your questions and concerns.  I was quite lost, unsure of how to go on, or where to find strength to continue pursuing my acting dreams. After just 15 minutes with Lisa, my great energy from the past was back and all the doubts were gone. It was MAGIC and very personal in the best meaning of the word. I wish Lisa was my coach a long time ago because by now I would be in a much better place. But I’m thankful I found her now so I can benefit from the wonderful gifts she has to offer me.  Lisa inspired me to do all the right things that resulted in my successful interview, and now representation with, my new agent.  Thank you Lisa! – Veronika Korvin

Virtual ONE on ONE with Lisa Gold  (Available anywhere you are, anytime you’re ready). $350 for Two Hour virtual session. (more often than not, we will go overtime. Please make room in your schedule just in case!)

The same great coaching and training as the in person sessions, but from the convenience of your own home via phone conferencing. A more affordable alternative to “in person” sessions and available coast to coast and beyond.


“I now realize that I can alter my own path and take control of my career. And that is what you are all about Lisa. You are the sunshine to the ice sculpture of “it’s-just-going-to-come-to-you-on-a-silver-platter-cause -you’re-talented fantasy/delusion” of a career that was carved for me. It’s gotta melt, it IS melting and will be a puddle that will evaporate back into the air from which it came. I have seen, with your help, these old patterns and how they don’t serve what I say I want. Seeing this is already success for me, otherwise I’d be off doing some showcase somewhere, keeping the “I’m going to be discovered dream alive.” But it’s not a dream, it’s a nightmare, and NOW I am finally awake!” ~ Dan Hicks

“Lisa Gold has kept me driven. In a world (not just this field) where it is sometimes so difficult to figure out what you’re supposed to be doing and where you’re supposed to be going, I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Lisa. She is so level-headed and has this keen and unique ability to see through the fog and cut to the chase. I feel smarter and more confident than I ever imagined I’d be – let alone this soon in my life! It’s so nice not to feel alone or small in a business where the odds are so stacked against you. I learn something new about the business or myself every single day and I LOVE that. This experience with a mentor is totally worth every penny.” ~ Kelsey Bevins

I hope you’ll consider taking me on as your coach too!  To Your Success, Lisa Gold
