Today we’re answering a question from one of our viewers!
Picture this: Your career is really taking off. You’re getting into better audition rooms, sign with your dream rep, maybe you even become offer-only.
Sounds great, right? Naturally people will start to notice you a little more, and this is where today’s #GuruTips topic comes in.
Elizabeth wrote in to ask us how to handle some people from her past who were… less than supportive before her successes and are just now trying to jump on the bandwagon. We want to cultivate and grow our fan bases, but what is there to do when someone posts something on Facebook that just isn’t true!?
Join me in this week’s Guru Tips For Actors! (I even get a little personal toward the end, so you know this is a good one.)

Isn’t it funny how many past “best friends” emerge now that your career is taking off? 🙃 #nopeClick to Tweet This: “IIsn't it funny how many past "best friends" emerge now that your career is taking off? 🙃 #nope"

Thanks for watching! Because this is such a huge topic we’re splitting it into two videos! Two weeks from today we’ll be following up with Part Two where we talk about handling your potential stalkers. Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss it!
And did I mention today is my BIRTHDAY?!? I would love for you to celebrate with me as we expand into Acting Resource Guru with our Red Carpet Launch on June 6th! This party is looking so great on our end and we are beyond excited. I’ll give you a hint: gift bags. Another hint: free vodka. Click here to RSVP! (Have I mentioned it’s free?!?)
Don’t worry if you’re not in LA, you can still RSVP for the virtual party AND still get a bunch of digital gifts and swag. You literally have nothing to lose (and a whole lot of free stuff to gain!)
Do you have a juicy question you want me to cover in a future episode of GuruTips for Actors? I’ll be answering YOUR questions every few weeks, so be sure to send them in to [email protected]!

Ajarae Coleman is a working actress living in Los Angeles. You can see her on shows like ABC’s SCANDAL, REVENGE, PRIVATE PRACTICE, and THE CATCH, CBS’s THE McCARTHYS, 2 BROKE GIRLS, and NCIS: NEW ORLEANS, NBC’s DAYS OF OUR LIVES, TNT’s PERCEPTION, I'M SORRY on Netflix, and more. Ajarae founded Acting Resource Guru (ARG) in 2012 to give actors practical steps to book more work and take ownership of their careers. In 2020, Ajarae launched The Table, an exclusive online membership for actors who crave an artistic life that goes beyond just booking gigs. They are ready to make a greater impact, which looks like building communities of collaborators, creating their own opportunities, and developing residual income streams. Ajarae believes that actors play a huge role in bringing forth a reality where every being on the planet is safe and valued, and The Table empowers actors to claim their seat.

  1. Lots of good information in this week;s post. I’m an extremely vindictive person and only recently began to look for some good in the actions of my “assailants”. You sharing your story about your Harvard graduation really encourages me to be less reactive and consider the abilities or circumstances of the detractor.
