Thriving Artist Circle - with Dallas Travers

Landing Page

Your career is more than a to-do list.
It’s more than auditions and headshots and waiting for your big break.

This is your life’s work…what will you make of it?

The Thriving Artist Circle is for actors who harness the power of community, leadership, professionalism, curiosity and play, all while building a profitable and purposeful acting empire.

We’re who you’ve been waiting for.  We’re so happy you found us.

Let’s be real: you want a successful and lucrative career, so we focus on providing resources to help you make that happen.

But we know you also want to get back in touch with why you fell in love with acting in the first place. You want to tell stories, make a difference, + be part of an active, artistic, + socially conscious community.

We make money + meaning. We’re into success + substance. We walk the red carpet + walk the dog. We see no contradiction.


we consciously build community.

We don’t gossip. We listen. We share ideas and resources. We stand for inclusion, generosity, and contribution. We ask for and offer help. We reject scarcity and understand that the more we give the more we get because there’s plenty for everyone. We have fun together. We celebrate each other. From the coffee-fetcher to the exec-producer, we value all members of our circle.

we practice impeccable professionalism.

We show up. We prepare. We say thank you and express gratitude. We own it when we blow it. We give ourselves credit and challenge ourselves to be better. We act in integrity, have + respect boundaries, and communicate clearly. We don’t complain, instead we act in the spirit of partnership to solve problems.

we take inspired action.

We are not only creative, but we take action to create. We question common wisdom, take risks, + trust in the power of pursuit. We value strategy + execution as much as we value big ideas + dreams. We create new work and opportunities for ourselves + others. We trust in our instincts. We don’t wait for permission; we take action.

With Actors’ Advocate Dallas Travers as our host, we participate in a healthy combo of career building trainings, informative teleseminars, an active online community + live, community-building events.

Each year, we choose a specific theme as our guide + explore that theme from the angles of confidence, connection, creation, and community. Our theme for 2014 is “Courage”, so get ready to be confident, think bigger + take risks.

Think: Mindset. We’ll kick the year off by defining the culture of courage + the role it plays in your career. Then, Dallas + some special guest experts will share the mindset tools you need for a firm foundation that will carry you through the entire year.
Think: Marketing.  We know that marketing is not about being pushy or needy or fake.  That’s why we only rely on out-of-the-acting-box relationship building strategies to create the trust we want with the people we admire.  Plus, there’s no better person to provide those strategies than Dallas.  She’s the industry leader.
Think: Making it happen. We don’t wait for opportunities. So, each summer is devoted to letting our voices be heard + our talents shine. 2014 will bring our 2nd annual TAC Tiny Film Festival featuring short films of epic proportions all created by TAC members.
Think: Mutually beneficial relationships.  We’ll wrap up the year focusing on the people you know + the people you want to know.  As actors, who can you hire + who should you fire?  How you can step into being a leader + make a major difference even before you’re famous?




We are 100% committed to changing the shape of the entertainment industry through a community of professional, creative actors turned leaders.

We have the power to do that.

We have the potential to build a purposeful + profitable acting empire for each and every one of us.

So do you.
