SMFA in Chicago, New York, and Toronto (and LA of Course)

Ooh, I'm so freakin' excited! Like… ridiculously excited! Crazy OMG out of my mind excited!

I continue to confirm events and locations for Chicago, New York, and Toronto, and I'll be headed out in just about a month. Holy cow! I am *over the moon* excited about bringing Self-Management to Actors to the creatives in these cities! I can't even contain myself, I'm so damn thrilled!

Because there have been some questions flyin' our way about which classes are the right fit, I decided to take this last li'l bit of my hot Friday night to show up in your inbox with some details so you can choose the right fit four our time together while I'm back in these three gorgeous cities next month!

Let's Connect Out Of Town!

Chicago:
SAG-AFTRA Foundation Casting Access Project (this is great for actors who wanna strut their stuff doing some of my favorite scenes from projects I've cast over the past 15 years, get some feedback, and of course share some ninja tips)
SAG-AFTRA Foundation Beyond Branding: The Why Behind the Buzzword (if you're ready to go past the hype and into the WHY behind the WHAT of all this brand stuff — including how to get things happening and how to ensure that all of your marketing tools are teaching the buyers how to cast you before they even meet you — this is for you)
SMFA Chicago (a day-long intensive in which we frolic through the Self-Management for Actors core principles: type and brand, targeting and marketing, creating castable content, and of course networking and pitching — no prior SMFA experience required)
Chicago Acting in Film Meetup: How to "Yes, and…" Every Opportunity (ooh, this is good — there is so much going on in your market right now and it's time to capitalize on what's happening to make sure the buyers don't pass you by)

New York:
SMFA for Alumni (if you've done a bit of Self-Management for Actors work with me and feel your foundation is good but you're ready to go deeper into your most castable brand, getting more creative with your targeting, and refining that pitch so you're unstoppable, this is your day-long intensive)
SAG-AFTRA Foundation Casting Access Project (this is great for actors who wanna strut their stuff doing some of my favorite scenes from projects I've cast over the past 15 years, get some feedback, and of course share some ninja tips; RSVP page will go up *in* May)
SMFA New York Master Class (consider this a bit like a mini version of our desert SMFA Escape — this is exclusive, spiritual, next-tier magic for ongoing masterminders and private coaching clients only; please reply to this email to find out if you qualify if you're not already certain)
SMFA New York (a day-long intensive in which we frolic through the Self-Management for Actors core principles: type and brand, targeting and marketing, creating castable content, and of course networking and pitching — no prior SMFA experience required)
SAG-AFTRA Foundation Casting Panel (stay tuned for more details on this event — additional panelists are being confirmed; RSVP page will go up *in* May)

Toronto:
SMFA Toronto (a day-long intensive in which we frolic through the Self-Management for Actors core principles: type and brand, targeting and marketing, creating castable content, and of course networking and pitching — no prior SMFA experience required)

Oh, and I promised a bit of news about LA! I know it says big ol' SOLD OUT over here at the SMFA Retreat page, but just today a lovely ninja booked a gig conflicting with our day-long intensive, so rather than edit the page *again* I'm just gonna tell you to snatch that spot NOW if you wanna jam with us in Santa Monica before August. 🙂 Yup, that'll be your next chance!

Phew! That's a lot of info. 🙂 Digest. Check your calendar. Reply to this email if you have questions. Dive in and join us for some of the most fun you'll ever have getting empowered about your creative career!

Keep an eye on my EVENTS calendar for added badassery in each city and — if you've registered already or have coaching on the books with me — stay on the lookout for email giving you the scoop on homework and all that good stuff. 'til then, thank you for supporting my addiction to meeting as many SMFA ninjas in the flesh as is Bonnily possible! It's such a delight to get to tour around the world bringing Self-Management for Actors ninjosity directly to the most inspired and inspiring creative storytellers on the planet!

Thank you for welcoming me along on your creative journey. It's such an exciting path to share with you! 🙂 So… let's DO this! 

Got a request for another city for me to add to my 2018 tour? Welp, there's already Atlanta, Barcelona, Berlin, and London on the list… let's see where else this awesome life can take me! 🙂

So much love,


Bonnie Gillespie is living her dreams by helping others figure out how to live theirs. Wanna work with Bon? Start here. Thanks!
