Let me tell you about a little thing I call The Table success path.
This career-changing success path will be your guide as you design your ideal career and bring it to life. When you join The Table, we will chart a path based on where you are in your career. You will use the Success Path to determine where exactly to focus your time and effort for maximum results. As you implement the training and check off the milestones for each stage, you will gain confidence, grow your acting resume, develop an effective team to support you, cultivate your base of collaborators and fans, and ultimately achieve financial and creative independence.
Our success path is your complete roadmap to creative and financial freedom…
Stage 1: OWNERSHIP
"I create systems that support the high-level artistic career I am calling in."
Set career goals using The Table framework; create a weekly planning ritual; cultivate a stillness practice, build an accountability structure; and create a powerful list of future collaborators.
Stage 2: MOMENTUM
"Every purposeful action I take brings me closer to my artistic vision."
Execute monthly marketing plans; create casting profiles that get results; deliver auditions and self-tapes with ease; have an income source that supports your career; and connect with industry pros on your target list.
Stage 3: LEADERSHIP
"I am a strong and generous leader who embraces the collaborative nature of my art."
Learn to articulate your mission; lead your teams of agents, managers and other support; grow your circle of influence; and execute quarterly plans with your team on board.
Stage 4: VISIBILITY
"I embrace my expanded vision. Every day, I play a bigger game and my career meets me there."
Create, co-create and commission original projects; use your bookings to gain momentum; use public relations tools for promotion; develop residual income sources; and connect with your fans and nurture "superfans."
Stage 5: FREEDOM
"My success is a journey that includes enthusiasm for life, fulfilling relationships, creative freedom, a sense of well-being & peace of mind."
Spend most of your time focused on your own priorities; say "no" to misaligned opportunities; lead a team that fully supports you; thrive financially; create a lifestyle that you love; and live in a state of gratitude.
The success path is designed to meet you exactly where you are and propel you to new heights. If you've always known you could be incredibly successful, you've come to the right place.

Meet Ajarae Coleman
The Table-Maker (Carpenter?) 🤔
Hi there! I’m Ajarae (she/her). I’m a working actor, businesswoman, productivity junkie, meditation enthusiast, cat-mom, foodie, and (double!) Gemini.
Years ago, I left my comfortable corporate job for a dream of being a working actor. I’m so proud to have achieved that, and to support a lifestyle I love working as an artist. I’ve used all my experience plus what I've learned from countless others, to create what I believe to be the most dynamic place on the internet for actors: The Table.
I created The Table’s Success Path because we have work to do. Many people still see the artistic lifestyle as one of scarcity and fear. And many actors are stuck in people-pleasing patterns because they feel like they have a lower status than others in the industry, like casting directors, talent agents and producers.
None of this is true. We hold tremendous power as actors. Performers are opening minds by introducing people to perspectives they don’t necessarily encounter in their daily lives and sharing stories where folks can see themselves.
Performers play a huge role in creating a reality where every being on the planet is safe, heard and valued. I am humbled and grateful every day to be an actor. And I am honored to welcome you into this community of heart-centered, purposeful artists. Welcome to The Table.
The Table Uses the 3 C's to Propel You to the Next Level of Your Career
So many actors are stuck because we just don't know what to do. The Table provides an easy-to-follow success path that lays out every step you need to take to create a fulfilling and abundant artistic career. With the support of twice monthly coaching calls and our tight virtual community, you can rest assured that none of your questions will go unanswered.
What if I told you that as an artist you still deserve a life with helpful structure and accountability? Well, you do. In The Table, we help our members create solid systems, so no matter how much time you have (or don't have) in your schedule, you're still making progress. You'll be shocked by the impact that taking consistent action will have over just a few short months. You have no choice but to be successful.
We harness the power of an encouraging, safe, artistic and inclusive community to help you find encouragement, inspiration and motivation, even on your hardest days. At The Table, we leave scarcity, competition, and cattiness at the door.
Basically, we help you know what to do and give you the tools to help you do it. Oh, and the whole time you have an incredible group of cheerleaders surrounding you, who are so excited to watch you succeed.
Hear what our members have to say...
I moved out of an unhealthy relationship with my ex-manager, and signed with a new manager and agent. I learned how to seek help and found an accountability buddy. The Table is a communal space for interaction, shared experiences, and wisdom-sharing. And it feels safe to do that.
I did a group coaching call with Ajarae... and it was so what I needed to hear in that moment. I've been updating Ajarae on my progress and she's been such a great anchor of support. And she is for everyone! I don't know how she does it.
I've internalized that I am worthy. And that's the biggest game changer.
I booked 3 network co-stars in the last 10 months or so... and I was offered a role in an indie feature based on my online presence...I booked a recurring role in an Amazon Prime digital series... this really helped me streamline my thought process about the business. I've gotten more done in the past few months than I have in years!
Meet your colleague at The Table, Jessica D.
Jessica is an absolute firecracker. In the past year alone, she has completely transformed her career and her life! I could brag for days on her amazing list of accomplishments, but I will keep it short: she’s found new management, new representation, multiple exciting bookings (including a film and commercial booked in 2022), and even made the cross-country move to Los Angeles to better support her blossoming career.
I'm really seeing the progress and turning my goals into reality!
I have an agent I love, I’m auditioning for major network shows, I’m creating my own work and getting it into the world! I booked a national pet commercial and car commercial during COVID! But I also learned how to make my actor life and personal life fit together. I have a flexible remote job that supports my acting and that I enjoy doing! I feel comfortable and confident networking and setting boundaries.
Honestly, The Table hasn’t just made me a better actor, it’s made me a better businesswoman and CEO of my life, and I am happier in my life because of what I am learning and the community of The Table.”
More member experiences...
The thing I've learned that's really made a difference for me is better time management and organization. I think that's what Ajarae is really stellar at. If I do get a last-minute audition, I don't have to panic because everything is so jam-packed in my schedule.
Ajarae has amazing creative ideas on how to get your business end of this thing going. I booked a commercial that wound up on kiosks in all the subway systems in New York, I have supporting roles in two films, and I made it into the LA Film Festival with a short that I starred in. What I really want to do now is a pilot...
Kris Ann R.
I joined because I needed a community. I was just doing this on my own, and I wanted to be around some like-minded people and be held accountable. I booked my first co-star role on SCANDAL! My most recent win was a co-star on ALL-AMERICAN, and that made me realize the importance of relationships, which a lot of people overlook.
I also shot a scene with someone in the group that gets me called in all the time!
Meet your colleague at The Table, Katie B.
Katie adores our online community, even though she was skeptical at first because she doesn't hang out on Facebook for anything else. This is the first time she's had a community of like-minded actors who support one another rather than compete with one another.
I am so so so grateful for The Table and the vault of resources (of which I have only scratched the surface!) and I am proud of myself for investing in me.
Thank you for being the beautiful light that you are and helping me to realize I am so important as an actor. I have found so much healing through The Table which in turn helps my art. You have helped me realize that my acting is important and also that I am important to the industry and [have given me] the ability to claim fully I Am An Actor and know that doesn’t mean I need to struggle emotionally or financially because of that claim. Having a pathway and the support system is changing so many aspects of my life unrelated to acting (but let’s be real, it's all related!).
...and more love from our members.
It was the best investment. By far. I signed up immediately for the yearlong program and haven’t regretted a moment. When I got my login and went inside, it was like, so delicious. As a busy entrepreneur, I like things structured. I like to know what I need to do, and I could really do that for my own business, but I’ve never been able to do that as an actor. I love those checklists. And I know I’m accomplishing something because there are set points. And yet it’s simple enough that you don’t get overwhelmed. If I had this when I was just starting out, holy smokes! The interviews are priceless. There’s a lot of smoke and mirrors out there. But we need roots and stability and strength to grow on. That is what The Table brings.
Now I have this new perspective of how to form and foster relationships with people in the industry. I’m coming more from a space of service, which is cool. I’ve never been auditioning this much. My agent is wonderful; I have a great relationship with her and I feel comfortable reaching out to her. I am moving forward on my own projects... my callback ratio is huge, my avail ratio is huge. I’ve seen a lot of growth and I attribute that to the work I’m doing with The Table.
The sheer amount of resources that The Table provides, whether in video and worksheets... I mean, videos are transcribed for the type of learner you are, that's insane! The industry expert interviews are so helpful. This is a living, breathing company, and it's so legit in terms of the way they keep pumping in more stuff into the resource pool. And then the fact that there is a community, the fact that there are people you can talk to and collaborate with, and that these are like-minded people. People who are serious about their careers and the commitment to it.
Meet your colleague at The Table, Heather D.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Heather for years, and even though I already know how magnetic and wonderful she is, she still managed to blow me away with all of her accomplishments in the past year. Not only did she have a role air on This Is Us, but she also premiered the sitcom she co-created and starred in. Plus, she has birthed a successful business that is aligned with her passion. Oh, yeah, and she was nominated for a BroadwayWorld award for her one-woman show. Aaannnd she and her hubby just bought a house. No biggie.
The Table is a treasure trove.
There's so many resources attached and so much valuable content. It's beautiful, but not surprising to me because [Ajarae] is always on the leading edge of what's really missing for actors and [encourages them] to be as empowered dealing with the business side as they are around the craft side.
