  • Workshop with Betsy Capes of Capes Coaching

    Monday, March 15, 2021 at 04:00 PM - PDT · $10.00 USD

    On March 15th at 4pm PST / 7pm EST, Harvardwood is thrilled to bring you a workshop with Betsy Capes of Capes Coaching, NYC's most reputable entertainment industry career coaching team! 

    Founded by Betsy and Jodie Capes in April 2004, Capes Coaching has earned its reputation as an industry leader by presenting a radically different way of approaching artistic careers, benefitting thousands of actors, artists, and creative professionals. Rather than provide you with stock answers or marketing pointers, the coaches at Capes know that there is no formula or “one right way” to achieve personal success.

    Betsy will cover how to create a plan of action to reach YOUR specific, personalized goals. Going against the industry trend of one-size-fits-all, quick-fix solutions, the Capes Coaching method stresses awareness before action and emphasizes long-term, sustainable careers in the arts.

    Capes Coaching's mission is to empower actors and artists by providing them with the knowledge, tools, and support they need to take control of their careers. 99% of the business is out of your control - but you can do amazing things if you focus on the 1% that is in your control.

    Attendees will learn about goal setting, strategic planning, mindset, networking, life/career balance and more!

    A NEW MOVIE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
    Young Marco is obsessed with playing video games and hardly leaves the house. But when his grandfather moves in, Marco’s life is turned upside-down and he’s forced...to go play outside. Nonno introduces him to bocce — the world’s oldest game — and to the neighborhood crew of old-school seniors who play daily at the local court. With sport, laughter and love, Marco finds connection to other people “in real life” and rounds up a team of neighborhood kids to take on his grandfather and his pals. Appropriate for ages 9-99.
