Tanya Kersey has sparked my fire within me to get out of procrastination mode. With all the resource that we think we don't have is really right at our fingertips. Most of us don't even know how to tap into the resource we already have. Tanya showed me the formula in moving forward and offered some great products along the way. Its an honor and a privilege to be her student and I thank her for everything.

The biggest career issue I was struggling with was not having an actual plan of action. I was always jumping from one thing to another without finishing much of anything. After working with Tanya,  now I have a vision as to how I can achieve my career goals. I now have a plan to take advantage of opportunities that I would normally have routinely passed up because I lacked confidence.

My name is Floyd Marshall Jr, I'm a filmmaker from Philadelphia, Pa and I want to take a moment to talk about Tanya Kersey. I initially took her Film Festival Challenge and followed that up with her Hollywood Success Challenge. As filmmakers we strive to be the best we can be and to put out quality work, but that's only a small part of the equation. There's a business side to this that you must know and understand, how to secure financing, how to create and sustain your brand which is you. How to make it clear about who and what you are so when you're speaking with a prospective investor or fellow filmmaker there's no doubt as to who they're speaking with. When I took both challenges I had some knowledge as to how the process worked from the film side, but I was totally lacking in knowledge on the business side. It's great to make a good film, but what happens after you make it? What do you do with it? Where does it go or where do you want it to go? What avenues or people are you pursuing to get the most out of your hard work and investment? Tanya Kersey shows you how to do that. She takes what you have and reshapes it into something with pinpoint accuracy as opposed to something that's all over the place with no clear cut intent. To date, after having combined what I've learned from Tanya and others, I've completed two short films, both of which are in festivals right now. I've also been fortunate to have one of my films play internationally in Romania. So what am I saying? If you're looking to make an impact with your films or screenwriting, if you're looking to take your work to the next level, if you're looking to have a sound business plan, if you're looking to cement your brand in the forefront of people's mind, then I suggest you give Tanya Kersey a serious look. What she has to say will change how you make films and how you approach this business, because it's just that, a business. And to borrow a phrase from Ms. Kersey, To Your Success.

Tanya helped clarify how important it was for me to rethink my business approach as a songwriter and record producer, and helped put me on the path to a new approach which ultimately I believe will take me to new levels of success. She is extremely knowledgeable about marketing, branding and the tools – e.g. websites, email campaigns and more active involvement in the business community – which are required for success in the internet age. Thank you Tanya for your world of help!

Wow, talk about a woman who knows about the entertainment industry from top to bottom. There is no one better to give you the advice or guidance you need to succeed in Hollywood. Tanya has run a top notch film festival where she has kept her fingers on the pulse of independent and studio filmmakers alike. Not only has she provided a venue for independent artists to shine but she has also given them the training and networking opportunities to move their careers forward. Tanya can also provide the latest statistics in regard to box office figures. She knows budgets, business plans, shooting schedules, above & below the line talent/crew, from concept to distribution and beyond. In short, the woman is incredible and very proactive. Over the past ten years, I've watched Tanya give back to young and old filmmakers alike just to set or keep them on the right path. Even with her busy schedule, she always makes time to give back on a conference call or recorded interview. She is a very kind woman with a no-nonsense attitude. Her smile is always bright and warm. But what's most important is, Tanya will get in the trenches with you. Tell her your goals and she will help you to get it done. She's a strong business woman and I am honored to have her as my colleague and friend.

Tanya's wisdom is a must if you're serious about making moves in the industry. She'll save you time, money, and pain. She's the best kept secret in the business by far!

This is a totally amazing journey. Tanya Kersey you have invited us into a gold mine and asked us to pick what we need. You are truly a blessing in my life. I prayed for a way to move forward and you offered the challenge. With my each step your words and your exercises reinforce the correctness of the action. Each day brings me closer to my goals. I love the me that I have found, I love the me that I am becoming. I hope that one day I can reciprocate for what you have given me.

Tanya, thank you! You have no idea how much this has helped me. I tell everyone I come in contact with how much this has changed my vision for my career and stepping out and asking for what I want instead of sitting back and waiting for things I want to come my way. This challenge caused me to step up my game and has ignited my senses and creativity like you would not believe. It has given me something to look forward to. I reached one of my goals last night. Because of this challenge work is coming my way! I no longer live in fear of asking for what I want.Thank you. I am ready!

I definitely see a yellow brick road now where before it was just kind of a weedy, grassy path on the way to my goals. I'd like to give a big shout out of appreciation to Tanya Kersey.

Because of your training and advice, I’ve made GREAT strides in getting “back” in the business. I’ve connected with friends that have major influence in the business. It was so good meeting with them again. Great writers, with great advice. I’m working on a “TV Pilot (murder mystery),” Feature (Horror) and finishing up the first draft of a Western. I’ve taken meetings with academy award nominated writers, and got great (personal) advice from WGA award winners. All this, after going through your program. Understand, there’s still much to do, but at least I’m on the right track. Blessings and Thank You.

I was the person who completely had no idea from where and what to start my career. But what I learned from Tanya is each of us have their own journey and I could take my first step to take action. She will help you to move in the right direction.

We venture into this business filled with talent, ambition, and passion, so much so that we ignore the most important thing, The Business! Tanya puts it into a real workable prospective with her professional insights. She gives the tools and information to build a strong foundation to support realistic industry goals.
