work with erica

Do you dream of finally moving into the network/studio phase of your career? (One more student film, and I may pull my hair out!! That’s not what I moved to LA for!)

Are you dying to work on Netflix projects or have more “real” opportunities? (Um, even just auditioning /interviewing for those would be a step up!)

Are you determined to find a rep who actually believes in
you and sends you out all the time? (Wait… those exist at my level?)

Or maybe you’ve been there, done that to all of the above but you’re feeling stuck where you are and are dying to move up the ladder to meatier jobs, bigger paychecks, and more impact.

If you’re like, “OMG HELL YES, PLEASE!!!!” then this is for you.


I’m Erica wernick and I’m obsessed with helping you make those dreams your new normal.

Actors, Writers, Directors, Set PAs, Musicians, and Artists come to me to receive results like this.

If you feel stuck where you are — like what you want is so far away — I want to show you what’s possible.

    out right away on network projects

  • 12 pilot auditions in very first pilot season

  • Made $37,000 from booking just two projects

  • Replaced bartending job income with dream job income

You know how Monica and Ross do that thing where they go through their packing list and say “CHECK!” out loud to each item they packed? (No? You’re not a super Friends freak like me? #itsasickness) — Be like Monica and say “CHECK!” out loud for any of these you relate to:

  • Do you feel like you’re waiting for your lucky break and you worry it may never come?

  • Are you frustrated because you feel like you’ve tried ALL THE THINGS and you’re still stuck?

  • Have you had a little bit of success but want SO MUCH MORE and it doesn’t seem to be coming?

  • Are you scared AF that you’ll be doing your day job forever?

  • Do you completely cringe when anyone back home asks what you’re working on?

  • What if everyone was right and it really is impossible to do what you want to do?

CHECK! (That’s me checking off every single one of them.)

Because I used to feel them ALL.

Aren’t they the worst? For me, it led to an entire year feeling depressed AF.


I moved to LA with a dream of designing graphics for television but I didn’t know a single person in the industry. No uncles, no friends, no Mom’s friend’s old roommates.

But I figured something out because I booked my first show almost immediately. It. Was. Heaven.

And then the show got cancelled and C-R-I-C-K-E-T-S.

For almost an entire year, I had nothing. I felt like a failure. I couldn’t make this Hollywood thing happen and I fell into a depression.


I finally figured out the best way to break in and booked the TV show, Glee. Since then, I’ve worked on about 30 television shows over the past 10 years, covering every major network.

The secret to my success is a system I created out of necessity. (Because I wouldn’t even consider moving back home.) The foundation is based on a powerful mindset, and is carried through with a kick-ass actionable strategy.

Wait — you’re a Graphic Designer? How on earth can you help Actors, Writers, or Directors?

Because it’s all the same. After talking to hundreds of actors/writers/directors, working with dozens, and being an insider in Hollywood for 10 years, I can tell you that it’s all the same.

Why people get stuck, what holds them back, how to get an incredible agent or manager, the strategy pieces they are missing — all. the. same.

But don’t take my word for it. Listen to Rebecca’s story (Actress). You can also see countless more success stories here.


This program is unlike anything you’ve done before. Here’s why.

In other programs you learn tactics. Tactics are little actions to try — how to market, how to do drop-offs — tactics.

While these tactics can be an excellent foundation (so kudos to you for investing in yourself to learn these tactics!), the piece you are missing is the overarching strategy.

What do you do when the tactic doesn’t work?

When you get to the end of that program (or don’t even finish because you’re frustrated) and you don’t have the result?

You’re usually stuck feeling super disappointed — especially when you see that tactic working for others in the group, but not you.

And then you’re back to square one.

With my program, you will never have to go back to square one.

I’ll show you exactly what actions to take every day, and how to make them work for you, so you’ll always be moving forward.

 As we work together, we’ll dive into:

  • Reverse engineering your “big” dream (such as winning an Oscar) to create a tangible plan and make sure that every action you take is aligned with this vision

  • The special Uplevel Strategy that will get you out of your current level and into the “real” opportunities (I hope you’re ready…get excited!)

  • Uncover what isn’t working (because what got you here won’t get you to the next level) so that you’re no longer spinning your wheels

  • How to market yourself in a way that YOU actually feel really good about (so you can stop pursuing someone else’s version of your dream)

  • The beliefs that are sabotaging your next-level success so you can finally be the rockstar that you know you’re meant to be

  • Designing an action plan that shows you EXACTLY what to do every day (so you’re no longer wasting time on “busy” things and you’re only doing the actions that will get you the fastest results)
