Culver City, CA (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
Culver City, CA - Sage Creative, Inc, of Culver City, CA, was named a Blue Ribbon Small Business Award® winner today by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Company CEO, Dallas Travers, a certified life coach and entrepreneur who teach actors marketing and mindset strategies to build their acting empires, was recognized for her dedication to the principles of free enterprise and her contributions to restoring jobs and prosperity.
Dallas Travers’ small business is singlehandedly shifting the paradigm of the entertainment world from actors as commodities to actors as entrepreneurs and assets. Ms. Travers says, “I am so grateful to be honored in this way. I love working with actors, I couldn’t ask for a better community to be a part of.”
Dallas’ work has not only changed the way actors market themselves but also how other entertainment educators, photographers and even agents run their businesses. In 2009, Dallas was the first person to introduce online marketing to the acting industry and, though many have followed her lead, she’s still the forerunner and leader. Dallas’ philosophy is to give away her most valuable content of free tools and training to actors. A practice that is otherwise unheard of in the “traditional” salesmanship model of the entertainment industry. As one client says, “Working with Dallas is a game-changer. Her class changed my life.”
