In my role as a creative executive; entertainment career coach; creator of the CBS Diversity Writers Program and Director of the WGA Showrunner Training Program, I’ve hired and mentored hundreds of talented, ambitious entertainment professionals who’ve blasted through barriers to achieve success in Hollywood.
What do they all have in common? They know that to break in or move up in the entrainment industry you need blazing hot material, a dynamic personal story, plenty of contacts, and the support and guidance of an insider.
That’s where I come in.
Working with me gives you an edge. I’ve been on the other side of the desk, bought hundreds of projects and seen every mistake. I’ve made some of my own along the way, climbing the ladder to more than one dream job. I know what it takes to succeed in Hollywood and I want to share it with you so you save time, money and heartache. I will help you develop a game plan so you can realize your entertainment career goals and dreams.

“For me, working with Carole was the final link between meeting and actually staffing. She knows the “who”, “what” and “why” of the industry, which makes her coaching and advice invaluable. Carole also has both the kindness and the talent to wrangle the particular brand of “crazy” which is writerly anxiety. For that I am grateful, and a career-long client.”

INSIDER TIP: Every power player in this town got to where she or he is because somebody helped in the beginning. Consequently, most people are willing, if you do a decent “ask,” to sit down with you. Of course there are some jerks who would rather eat dirt than lend a hand, but they are few and far between.
