"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

Personalized New Actor Consultation

Almost every question you have has already been answered here on my blog. You can use the Google Search gadget in the right sidebar and filter through all my posts to find your answers. And it's all free!

However, maybe time isn't on your side. Maybe you have very specific questions that only pertain to you, etc....

I am now offering Personalized New Actor Consultations.

If you are new to LA, or you're going to move to LA in the future and want to have all your stuff together before hand, or if you want some help in figuring out how to type and market yourself, email me at


and let me know your specific questions. Include links to your materials and any other pertinent info and I'll come up with a plan to help you put your best foot forward.

I came to LA with a degree in Pretend and pretty much wasted two years trying to figure out how to do everything I know now. Two Years!

I can save you lots of time and money with what I think is worth thousands of dollars.

Okay, Lira, you're thinking, shut up and tell me how much money this is going to cost me! 


Yup. Seventy-five bucks. That's IT.

Why so cheap when I can go to other places for the same info and spend $700?

Because 700 bucks is a ripoff. And most of the info I'm going to tell you about is already on the blog. (And so is what the other rip off people are going to tell you.) You're basically paying me to customize and personalize everything for you so that you don't have to sift through it all.

You tell me you want a consultation, you tell me what you've done, give me your links to your materials, and I go over everything and send you my questionnaire. We go back and forth a few times. I spend almost two hours or more on you, your things, and helping you make yourself more marketable.

Why $75 if it's all for free on your blog? 

Because it takes me quite a bit of time to respond to you with all the customized details. And $75 means I can take my husband out to dinner and see a UCB comedy show. And you need to save your own money so that you can move or live in LA. I've been too poor to afford acting classes and I know how much that sucks. $75 is super affordable.

$75 Seriously? What's the catch?

There isn't one. Email me and let's get you started.

[Also - yes, I'm not posting on the blog as much as I used to, but I AM still offering consultations.]
