The Online School & Community That Teaches You How to Network Smarter, Not Harder
Network Smart is a virtual school and community.
Network Smart is about helping people understand what it truly means to Network. There has been a huge disconnect between the Millennial Generation, X-Generation & the Baby Boomers. Networking means you must learn how to become valuable to a company or person by connecting on a deeper level & learning how to articulate.
By creating a community that is in alignment with your brand, you will be able to navigate, approach, & maintain relationships in your chosen profession and/or industry.
Someone who is ready to become an Entrepreneur in the Entertainment Industry, not just an Artist.
You must be willing to get out of your Comfort Zone & let go of what currently isn't working.
Ready for an Accountability partner & Ready to let go of making Excuses.
Someone who has the "I WANT to do this" mentality, is ready to do ALL the homework and put ALL the work in that goes behind it.
Andria has been a coach of mine for almost a year now. She is very experienced in the entertainment and media industry, has tons of knowledge from her first hand experience and has close relationships with some of the biggest players in the industry. I was a bit unclear on how to hire a publicist and Andria mapped out a step by step plan that helped me find the best publicist for me and my goals. No matter what, I can always count on Andria to answer any questions that may come up as I continue on my journey as an athlete and fitness influencer.

I am so grateful to Andria for running this Network Smart class. I had no idea how to find mentors in the entertainment industry and how to network. Her course really helped. Andria really cares for her students and helps each one individually along their journey. She really helped me with my resume and cinematography reels. Even though the class is over, Andria still wants to help everyone succeed in their dreams and is available for any questions. She is so nice and genuine. Her connections in the entertainment industry and the knowledge she has about the industry are invaluable. I am so happy I took this class and that I had the privilege to meet her. I highly recommend this course for anyone interested in the entertainment industry, no matter what position you are looking for.

EXCUSE: "I don't have the capital"
TRUTH: If you are truly ready to pursue your dreams, you must invest in yourself.
