Isn’t your team really busy? Why are you doing this?
The truth is, we have been coaching people personally ever since we formed Starlight Runner. Helping people with their careers has always been important to us, so we’ve always spared a few hours a week to do it.
We have coached top Hollywood executives, adults just starting out in their careers, students looking for a leg up on their studies, and young people whose families could not afford the best career counseling. The results have been so wonderful, we simply decided to better organize ourselves, recruit a professional coach into our fold, and do this more formally.
Why are the coaching packages so expensive?
Be sure to review the testimonials to learn how valuable the work we are doing with you can be. Together we are starting your network into the big leagues. Not only are you getting customized advice from highly experienced entertainment professionals, you are joining a private community of Starlight Runner Life Story who will receive ongoing attention from our team.
Also, we are sensitive to those of you who may not be able to afford the packages, so we are offering lower priced career counseling by team members with plenty of professional experience.
Is it possible for me to talk with more than one of you?
Yes! Starlight Runner Life Story crossovers and team-ups work on a case by case basis. We may decide that you need special advice from a team member other than your coach, so we will arrange it depending on availability.
You can also make a special request, and the team member may appear briefly to help out as available. So long as these happen within your package, there is no additional charge. If we mutually decide that the crossover should be a separate session, there will be an additional fee.
How frequent are the sessions?
Coaching packages are usually weekly over the course of a month and a half. However, you can speak with your coach about making the sessions more frequent or spreading them out to give more time between sessions.
What if I want to continue working with my coach after the package is complete?
Just say so! If the coach is available, there are fees and schedules for additional sessions.
I’m shy about using video. Can we talk by phone?
While we prefer video calls, we are glad to speak by phone if you prefer. Note that some of our coaches like to use slides to illustrate their points. Even if you don’t want to do video calls, you may want to use video conferencing to see the slides.
What if I decide I want to switch coaches?
The beauty of the Starlight Runner approach is that we’re a team. If we mutually decide you would be better with a different coach, it’s not a problem. No hard feelings.
What is the Starlight Runner Life Story community?
Upon satisfactory completion of your coaching package, you will be sent a link to a private social media community of fellow Starlight Runner Life Story graduates. There you will be able to network, ask questions of the team, and receive tips and updates on entertainment industry developments, potential job leads, and other career-related information. Essentially, Jeff Gomez, Fabian Nicieza, and the Starlight Runner team become your first major business contacts!
A lot of people say it’s difficult, almost impossible to break into the entertainment industry. Even with your coaching, aren’t I really just dreaming?
With the proliferation of giant global media conglomerates, and the explosion of streaming media and digital media platforms, there has never been a better time to break into the entertainment industry. What is vital to understand is how exactly to develop your talent, plan your career, and make the contacts you’ll need to land a job. Very little of this is taught in college. That’s one of the reasons why we’re launching Starlight Runner Life Story.
Also, listening, empathy, critical thinking, teamwork, creativity, and effective communication are vital in today’s job market. These so-called “soft skills” will be signified and improved in you through our coaching, and that will help you land any job, within or outside of the entertainment industry.
