Since 2004, Capes Coaching has been empowering thousands of actors and artists by providing them with the knowledge, tools and support they need to take control of their careers.

Capes Coaching offers private career coaching for actors, artists, and creative professionals looking to move their career forward in an authentic and inspiring way. Sessions are done via phone and are 45-minutes long, available individually or in a package designed by you. The coaching sessions are designed to provide artists with support, guidance, accountability, and clarity via practical career tools and productive habits.

Artists need more than just a day-to-day activity list. Capes Coaching believes that every client is unique and faces challenges specific to his or her situation, so they start by getting to know you and identifying what you truly want, then work backward to fill in the blanks. They help you ask the right questions, redirect your energy, narrow your goals, and take action in a way that’s authentic to who you are and what you want.

"What Capes Coaching helped me realize was that in order for me to get what I want professionally, I have to define where I want to go and how to get there. As a result, I have accomplished all the goals we put in place and am in the process of setting new goals for things I couldn't have before even envisioned. I highly recommend Capes Coaching for anyone who is serious about their career.”
– Lennon Parham, co-creator and star of NBC's Best Friends Forever; CBS' Accidentally On Purpose

A Note from Ciara:
Capes Coaching was my first post-performer job and the first in my full-time marketing career. As marketing director, I had the great opportunity not just to experience all of Capes Coaching services, but see behind the scenes: how much goes into the development of their career classes, coaching, and programs, and how pivotal it can be for a performer to have structure and support for his/her career. Their philosophies and resources were hugely influential in shaping Exit Stage Right, and they share my belief in proactively designing your career for maximum success and satisfaction.
