Michael FranksIt has been almost 3 years since I started working with Jessica Sitomer, and started a program with her coaching. When I’m in my day- to-day life and working it’s difficult sometimes to see what’s working and what’s not working. In other words, why am I getting certain results and not getting others that I want. For as long as I could remember I had been doing the same things when it came to seeking work, and creating new work opportunities. My results were usually the pretty much the same. I found that cold calls and sending resumes out never really gleaned any new work. Also, I had never learned any new skills to be effective at getting from where I was to where I wanted to be. I knew more was possible but I was frustrated, and was looking for a way to move forward. Jessica Sitomer’s coaching has enabled me to discover things that I couldn’t see were holding me back. She helped me develop new habits and practices that supported me in getting the work I wanted. I have become more effective, i.e. less effort with better results. I have learned ways to create stronger relationships with old and new people who can hire me, and as a result, strengthened my partnerships with colleagues in the industry. Jessica’s coaching skills as well as her specific knowledge of the entertainment industry is what makes working with her so great- so on target. I really can’t say enough great things about her and the work she does. If I knew how to do what I learned from her before, I would have been doing it! No one else, that I know of, teaches you this stuff as you’re moving up in your career in this industry. You either get lucky, figure it out on your own, or you accept the way your career is going. I have become more focused and clearer about where I’m headed both professionally and personally, and have learned how to steer my career. Jessica has helped me appreciate the successes more, enjoy the challenges as well as the journey more, by seeing the work as a process not a destination. Since starting with Jessica director of photography credits include: Hannah Montana, Suite Life (various episodes), Raven (various episodes), Cake (full season), Dance Revolution (full season) other new ground taken: 2 short features, 2 single camera comedy projects/pilot.
