frequently asked questions
Who are your clients?
I work with people just like you or who are talented, performing artists that
hone into their skill, but have not quite grasped how to handle the internal
psychological mental blocks that include being clear on their motivation,
purpose, values, vision, and goals. They are the clients that have now come
to understand that these are the struggles that come with the journey through
making it in the industry, sustaining themselves in the industry or of just
being in the world of the performing arts.

What makes you different from other Artist Life Mentors?
I am a mentor that works on both inner and outer principles for your success.
I have a Bachelors of Arts and a Masters in Business—what that means to
you is you get from me an iron fist with a velvet glove. I have the ability to
break you down to build you up and then get to the practicality of this
industry. I’ve been there myself and having this type of program was
something that could have gotten me to my goals much quicker than I did.
I am concerned with how to get you to a place where only the best of who
you are shows up and as a result you are open to creating, manifesting and
receiving opportunities for you to get the ball moving on your visions and
goals. You may not always like what surfaces –but I can assure you that you
will be in a setting that is judgment-free and your comfort in letting things
surface will be genuine. What will surface is what is standing in your way of
success and how to become aware of it to release it efficiently so you can
start getting results (and I throw in there a healthy dose of relaxing
inspiration, which always helps).
What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of
The Artist Life Mastermind program was created for people who are
absolutely excited and dead-serious about their understanding that to
increase their significance in the arts they must increase their personal
growth—it means not running around all day long, beating yourself up
anymore saying “the road to this life is too difficult and long”. This program
was created for you to put systems in place within weeks, which will
eventually lead you to living out this dream to the fullest with the gaining or
regaining of awareness and to use it to achieve success and ultimately be
Being an artist myself, I am known to work best with other artists, people
who are committed to their success no matter what and who are extremely
ready to get going and just want to know exactly what steps to take to a
fulfilled life in the arts. My clients often tell me “Just tell me what to do and
I’ll do it!” Consider what you’ll do with me to be a high-octane crash course
on everything you need to know to live your truth as an artist. No excuses
anymore, just very different ways of thinking and full support while you
achieve this incredibly exciting goal: Joy and success of doing what you
love to do.
For what type of professionals are your programs NOT going to work?
Please know that I am very selective in who I work with and I cherry-pick
my clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my
programs and wont get the results for which they would have signed up for
(it wouldn’t be fair to them). The Artist Life Mastermind programs are NOT
for those who have no financial support coming in and have a main focus on
fame without wanting to open up their personal philosophy in regards to
living a life in the arts—at least not right away. It has been my experience
that people in financial crunches and are rigid in their pursuit do not trust the
recommendations and do not do the work (most likely because there is much
time worrying stability while desperately chasing financial and material
gain). If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely UNDERSTANDABLE.
Society has brought many of us to this point at one time or another. Do
yourself (3) favors:
1. Get some funding coming in and that will take the edge off and
provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly, it will de-clutter your
mind enough to focus on your Artist Life Mastermind assignments
and the BIG picture. Once you start seeing opportunities come in
regularly as a result of your work, you can then start reducing your
time in non-related ventures and focus on your own practice.
2. Sign up to receive newsletters through the contact section of
cassandraclaude.com. The free information will get you started
towards your goals until you are ready to work with me in the
3. Make a point to read my blog at
http://cassandraclaude.com/cassandras-blog/ where I write about my
journey with clients and write tips that will give you LOTS to think
Doing these three things will really help you get primed for our work. When
you’re ready, contact me and we will get you started (I’m in no rush and will
be here when you need me).
Other types of personalities that I will not work with are the whiner or the
chronic skeptic, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for
not getting their assignments done or challenging every aspect of the
program. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that
you not call and I hope you understand why. We will probably just not work
well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that
What exactly is Artist Life Mastermind and what does it include?
Artist Life Mastermind begins with understanding your true value as an
artists, where your power and inspiration really comes from, how to manifest
what you want, creating powerful intentions that get you results as well as
the outer pieces to powerfully get you opportunities. Here’s what the System
gets you to do:
1. Set Your Intentions
We examine where you are as an artist and get CRYSTAL clear about your
intentions, what you want to personally experience in your life as an artist.
Before you can manifest what you want you have to KNOW what you want.
You’ll learn the difference between setting goals and intentions, the biggest
mistakes artists make when trying to apply everything to pave the way for
exciting opportunities and synchronicities a to find you.
2. Release Your Inner Resistance
Mostly you might already know what you need to be doing but yet are still
struggling and feeling stuck and spinning in circles. You’ll be learning
proven techniques for breaking through your inner resistance, self doubt,
fear, anxiety and all of that “stuff” that keep you playing small so that you
can begin taking major action in yourself as an artist.
3. Creating Your Personal S.W.O.T. Analysis.
After all, you are an entrepreneur—an entrepreneur of your life—you ARE
your business. This is the practical part of analyzing and evaluating your
strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Identifying these factors
help you make decisions that align with your goals. Within this, we will
package your expertise so you know how to pinpoint opportunities and say
“yes, that’s for me”.
4. Focus In
We will look at which out of the 7 steps/blocks you should be focusing on
more to move yourself forward. We narrow the actions that you need to be
taking each day to leverage and sustain your pursuit.
We’ll speak about creating the new habit of celebrating what’s showing up
for you. What you focus on expands and everything you are learning and
experiencing is of your creation. Your confidence will sky rocket as you
consistently produce opportunities over and over again! Celebrate what
shows up so you can pave the way for even more!
Does this really work?
Yes! The result of our work is an approach to shifting your mindset and
approach to your talents so that with time, and consistency you’ll sky rocket
your confidence in your ability to manifest opportunities. (SeeTestimonials)
What results can I expect?

– Gain unshakeable confidence in yourself and your talent – (a lot of my
clients tell me that is worth the investment alone).

Can I contact some of your former clients to see what it’s like to work with
Yes, I encourage you to! Please go to the Client Testimonials page and
view all of them. See which ones you feel drawn to, either because the
person has gotten the results you want to get too, or perhaps because that
person is in a similar art form. Then feel free to email or call them and ask
what they got from working with me and my programs.
How quickly can I see results?
That depends on how quickly you can make those inner shifts. Some clients
are ready to go and sky rocket in a very short time frame. These are
generally the clients that have been actively spending time in improving
themselves. While others have a bit more work to do first. It also depends on
how far along you are in your journey, if you are a card holder or acquired
points for of SAG (film), AFTRA, (television and Radio) Equity (singers),
or AEA (Theatre) or you already have systems in place to help you leverage
How can I guarantee myself that I will get results?
Do all of your homework. Be totally committed to your success. Understand
that this is a process, a proven one that works if you take action and
implement all of the steps. All my clients who have diligently applied every
step of The Artist Life Mastermind have successfully grown in much less
time than they would have on their own AND have had more opportunities
than they’ve had doing what they do.
