Perhaps you’ve been taught that you need to rely on solely your training and talent to book work. Or that you need to accept that feast or famine is a part of the ‘artist’s journey.’
But a journey to what exactly?
- ✘ Desperation in auditions
- ✘ Constant feelings of ‘I’m not good enough?’
- ✘ Soul-sucking ‘survival’ jobs barely paying the rent?
- ✘ Inconsistent money flow?
- ✘ Never-ending comparisonitis?
- ✘ No clarity or vision?
- ✘ Performing for free to “gain exposure”
If you’re like most struggling talented artists, you lie awake at night questioning:
- Am I good enough?
- What will people think?
- Do I really have what it takes to make it?
- Is everyone else more prepared and further along in ‘The Biz’ than I am?
- Can I actually support myself or my family doing what I love?
- Am I just wasting time?
- Who will take a chance on me?
- When will my fears, doubts, and insecurities ever go away?
And, worst of all:
Maybe I should stop kidding myself and just grow up and get a ‘real’ job.
If you’re not lit up about your performing career, you must do things differently.
Hi There! I’m Keenah Armitage; creator of The Thriving Artist Method
In 2002, I was a Broadway actress, college professor, and director of a nonprofit organization. I was working seven days a week and had a nanny raising my kids.
With a résumé full of Broadway credits and a prestigious position teaching at a nationally ranked musical theatre college, it looked like I had it all. In reality, my health and my bank account were both depleted. My health practitioner told me I had adrenal fatigue and was ‘two steps away from death.’
When I was asked what I wanted for myself, I didn’t know—I had been putting everyone else first. Despite working all the time, I was still living paycheck-to-paycheck. Only one thing was clear: I was killing myself living like this.
The practitioner told me, ‘If you don’t become the cause that creates your life, you’ll be moved around like a pawn, and you’ll be discarded like a pawn.’ That moment changed the course of my life, health, career, abundance, and purpose.
I am a mindset and success coach for performing artists and the creator of the Thriving Artist Method. I guide my clients to unlock their magnetic presence, gain clarity, and build brand authority so that they live life on purpose full of joy, abundance, and pleasure while building the career they love… on their terms.
If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that life is short. Have you fully considered how much your dreams matter? Are you ready to transform your career from the inside out?
Clarity & Vision
" When you have tools that increase your magnetic presence, vision, and brand authority as an artist, EVERYTHING can change. Imagine having an all-in-one system that shows you exactly how to identify what you need, what to do, and where to go so that you can level-up your career and lifestyle offstage. That’s exactly what I’ve created for you."
