Are you a reader?  

Be a reader who is a champion for writers. 
Start your own Coaching or Consulting Business! 

Join Carolyn J Carpenter and Douglas Shaner,  the creators of the Hollywood Screenreaders course for readers, brings you a new course aimed at Coaches and Consultants.

In our signature Hollywood Screenreaders' Course, we take a deep dive into script analysis and how to work as a reader for Hollywood Production Companies.

In the Hollywood Screenreaders Coaching and Consulting, we take the knowledge of being a reader a step further! 

Being a coach and/or consultant offers readers the opportunity to be an entrepreneur by starting their own online business.

Would you like to be a champion for writers, working with them to develop their screenplays from the ground up?

Would you like to build your business, set your own schedule and create your own opportunities?

If so, you are in the right place. 

In this course, we will cover the basics of:

  • BECOMING A WRITER: Walk through the steps of writing a screenplay. See what it is like for a writer to face the blank page and get your own screenplay started in the process! This lesson will help lay the groundwork for understanding the process of writing a screenplay so that you can be a better coach and/or consultant for writers.

  • BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR: Set goals and make decisions using the same tools that are used by Fortune 500 companies. Get your path straight and take the steps to get your plan started.

  • CREATING A PRESENCE: Once you start your own business, how will people know you are here? This lesson takes you through the steps to get your business off the ground and into people's minds. Learn the basics of creating a presence both on and off line.

  • MARKETING: Learn how to connect with your potential clients, how to create a marketing strategy and how to engage with tools that will help you find the best way to attract and keep clients.

  • TO COACH OR NOT TO COACH: Explore the difference between being a consultant and being a coach. Do you want to focus on the script? Or do you want to inspire writers? Or both? Decide what is the best fit for you!

  • THE ACTION PLAN: Map out a concrete system with actual facts about the tools you will need, the costs involved with starting an online business and how you can start making an income as quickly as possible. 

  • BONUS TUTORIALS:  Easy tutorials to show you how to set up a business Facebook page, how to set up an email integrations, how to run Facebook ads and more. You don't have to be a tech wiz to start an online business. We will share the tools that can get you started.
