SHAWN'S STORY

When I got to LA I was full of vim and vigor, great training and talent– if I can say so! And very quickly I had the experience of feeling like “the business” was this gleaming industrial complex over there, across a big field that had a lot of landmines and pitfalls—holes I could fall into by making mistakes from which I might not recover. Then there was a moat, and on the outside of the moat was a chain link fence. 

I was outside that fence, rattling it, hoping someone would pay attention.

Well, it took a while and a lot of mistakes, but eventually I mastered the techniques I will teach you in this class to introduce myself to and get in business with producers, directors, agents, managers, a-list actors, casting directors, showrunners, CEOs, investors and more. 

These include individuals who have been nominated for Oscars and Emmys, famous people, powerful people, and people who were simply the right person for my project but were very hard to reach.

I learned how to do this boldly, powerfully, effectively and appropriately. Most of all, I learned how to do it quickly.

I put this class together because I’d been asked so many times how I got my meetings with this showrunner, that agent or that Oscar-nominated actor or director. And I felt like I couldn’t do those questions justice, because it’s not just one thing. You have to do many things, and you have to do them powerfully, effectively, and with perseverance.


But if you want to get yourself to pitching television networks three months after finding a TV idea when you’ve never pitched television before, or you want to get the call from the A-lister’s manager who six months previous wouldn’t return your call, this class is for you.

Here’s what you will get An audio, a video and a workbook covering:

  • The Six Components of a great letter. (See the testimonials below! You’ll learn how to write a letter that can get you a response in as fast as 24 hours!)
  • The Secret Ingredient of a great letter.
  • The Biggest Mistake people make in business communications.
  • How to make a request that will get you a “yes”.
  • The “Open Sesame” of every business communication.
  • Samples of powerful letters, emails and call scripts that have worked to secure meetings.
  • When to go “old school”.
  • Examples of what NOT do in letters, calls and emails.
  • Introduction Letters: I give you an example of one that worked beautifully to get a meeting and explain how to do it yourself.
  • Query Letters for Writers: I break them down and analyze them for you so that your Query Letters will get responses!
  • Cover Letters for Actors: I break them down and analyze them for you so that you get meetings with agents!
  • Mentor Letters: I explain what makes a mentor letter different from other types of letters and what you need to get a “yes”.
  • Cold Calls and “Warm” Calls: I break down how to do these effectively so that they stop being intimidating and you start making the darn calls!
  • Business Emails: Seems simple, right? Well, then why do we fail to get replies so often? Even from people we’ve talked to? I demystify the business email so that when you send emails, you get replies!
  • And then, once you’re in the door, how to have a meeting that knocks it out of the park!
  • This includes the most common mistake people make in meetings, how to ask the hard question, how to capitalize on excitement and move it into action, and much, much more!
  • Unlimited access to an audio and a video chock full of all the above tools that you can listen to and watch as many times as you want for 90 days.
