For actresses who want a powerful network of industry relationships with people who can actually hire them.

Enrollment closes in…



You are an ambitious and talented actress. You work hard and take a lot of action, but you still feel stuck. Whether it’s your lack of opportunities, quality auditions, or you feel overlooked by the “powers that be”, you feel like you should be farther along.  

Maybe your representation kinda sucks and you don’t get sent out very often, or you’re between agents and aren’t going out at all. You feel like if you could just get a better agent, that would solve the problem...only you know from past experience that it doesn’t.  

You know you have the goods because you get positive feedback on your work pay-to-meet events. If you have to hear, “You’re great, we love you, no thanks” one more can you figure out where the disconnect is so that you can finally break through?  

I’m Emily Grace, founder of Pickford West Society, and the creator of Relationship Ramp Up.  

In addition to helping my fellow actresses, I’m also a Sundance award-winning actress, a writer, director and producer (sometimes all at the same time). I’ve spent years in front of and behind the camera, worked with an independent film producer in the $5M -$50M range, and built three businesses from the ground up.  

Through all of my experiences, the biggest lesson I have learned is this: The FASTEST way to get from here to where you really want to be is through industry connections with people who can hire you.  

Relationships are everything. Yet, most women don’t prioritize relationship building enough, if they prioritize it at all.  

I’m here to help you change that. What you’ll learn in this program is truly the most important thing you can do to FINALLY book the work you want and get paid for it.

If you are ready to take your career to the next level I invite you to join me in RELATIONSHIP RAMP UP.

Step Up To The Plate Sessions

Putting yourself out there to a Big. Important. Person. is scary. It triggers all kinds of stuff and it's uncomfortable. 

During the STEP UP TO THE PLATE sessions you and your classmates will be clicking send, making scary phone calls, and asking for what you want. 

This part of program is worth ten times your investment, because it will finally get you out of resistance and into action.  

Something magical happens when a group of dedicated women commit to taking action. I will be here to give you the structure, support and encouragement you need to overcome your resistance, be bold, and book the work you want.  

These sessions will take place throughout the program, so it really is going to be a relationship ramp up to build momentum. 

Here's what else you'll learn in the program: 


First we lay the foundation for your success by choosing the direction bringing your ideal vision for the career you really want into focus.  

Once we know where you’re heading, it’s easy to choose the connections you’ll need to have to make your vision into a reality.  


You already have a network in place of people who can hire you, collaborate with you, refer, mentor or help you. Learn an easy system to strengthen the relationships you already have to create momentum, open doors, and start working.  


Building new relationships can feel daunting. If you have ever stopped yourself from reaching out because you don’t feel like you have anything to offer, you need to wait until you have a bigger credit, a better agent, a banging body, or fill-in-the-blank, this program will help you move past that.  

You’ll learn how to position yourself, your talent and your value in a powerful way so that you can build authentic connects with industry power players. From what to say, how to say it, to how often to follow up, this program has got you covered.  


People like to hire the people they trust. So how do you go from a total stranger to trusted colleague? This program will show you the art of effective communication, without feeling like that annoying needy actor.  


It would be great if people could read your mind and magically give you what want...but it doesn’t work that way. It’s time to step into bigger shoes and be the badass champion of your own career. Be bold, direct and ask for what you want.  

Asking for what you want is scary. Don’t let a little fear stop you from doing taking the most important action that has the biggest impact on your long term success.  

I’ll be here to help you every step of the way to bust through your fear, to get comfortable being uncomfortable, so that you can finally breakthrough to a new level of success.  

Plus I’ll share my tips for how to make your requests easy so that you’re not only more likely to get a yes, you’ll also maintain a great relationship.  


When you invest time into building relationships and trust with people who can hire tend to get hired by those people. Isn’t that kinda the point of this whole career?  

Good thing you’re such a smarty pants, because when you follow the steps laid out in Ramp Up Your Relationships, you’ll be miles ahead of your competition, and well on your way to the projects, collaborations, and career you really want.  


This program is designed to get you into action right away. Listening and learning doesn’t do you any good without implementation.  

Every week you will be in the flow of action so that the relationships you have, and the ones you create, will pay off for you as quickly as possible.

What others say about working with Emily...

I love Relationship Ramp Up! It was really worth the investment. There were so many people I had been meaning to reach out to and I’ve known for years that reaching out to content creators and other industry people was something I wanted to do, but this class actually gave me the tools and courage to actually do it. Emily is very knowledgeable and an excellent coach. I hope she makes more programs like this so I can take them all”  

-- Samantha River Cole

Relationship Ramp Up was the first course I have taken that had concrete ways to communicate in this industry which we all HAVE to do. I highly recommend it.  

-- Anthia Gillick

I feel clarity and confidence in who I am and what I bring to the table. I feel like suddenly I have a lot more of my career in my own hands. Thanks so much, Emily. You do great work. :-)”  

-- Rebecca Weaver

“I’m more focused on what I need to be doing and feeling more confident! Less overwhelmed! The thing I liked best was how accessible Emily was..."  

-- Robynn Lin Fredericks

“I’m even more focused than before because I have even more clarity about what I want to do and with whom. I feel more confident in contacting people because I know what to say and how."  

-- India Autry

"If anyone is considering working with this woman, don’t think, just DO! Not only did she provide me with a wealth of information and resources, but practical, focused, life changing stuff." 

-- Karole Foreman

“Everyone always tells you that the odds are against you, the statistics are ridiculous, there are SO many people trying to do the same thing you are – You have a better chance of winning the lottery than you do of making acting a career…  

Right, there are TONS of people you’re competing against, but it becomes less daunting when you realize that MOST of those people probably aren’t employing those necessary business and marketing strategies and doing so consistently. Once YOU do, you WILL see results, you WILL realize that pool of competition becomes much smaller and that THIS SH*T ACTUALLY WORKS!”  

--Nicole Vogt-Lowell

"I have learnt that it takes time to trust and develop relationships and not to be in such a rush. I feel less afraid to ask for what I want, not worried if something doesn’t work out, and more picky about who I want to choose to work with. It’s a great way to get hold of your career, to think out of the box, to be reminded of how to connect with people and to relax! Thank you Emily! I really loved this class and am very grateful to you.”  

--Jumaan Short

“I have gotten more done in the last two months than…probably ever.”  

-- Kelli Ambrose

“I was worried about whether it would be any different than the dozens of books I’ve read or what I’ve learned with my acting coach. It was worth every penny. It was more than I expected. Emily has organized tried and true information, incorporated social media which a lot of coaches don’t really grasp yet, and gave me the structure I needed. I’m a lot more confident when it comes to networking.  

-- Lisann Valentin

“Before working with Emily I used to hate social media – I thought it was the dumbest thing! But now that I understand it, I actually love it. Not only has it helped me create better relationships with people in the industry, but it has created more lively conversations with people in person as well. I have also been able to get my own press picked up, which has led to other interviews and the opportunity to spread the word about my producing projects as well.”  

-- Laura Nordin
