Who are we?
We are experts in the Performing Space.
We combine sports psychology, science, and artistry with craft.
If one part of the system is out of balance, it affects everything else. Because mindset is EVERYTHING.
WHAT DESCRIBES YOU?
But they often have no mental skills training. And they often get thrown by working in less than ideal conditions:
Performing to a cold room. Running from appt to appt with no down time. Going on at 11 PM after waiting for hour
We teach practices rooted in science that help performers achieve their best potential. We bring awareness and tools to areas of your performance you have been neglecting, or haven’t even thought to consider yet. We help elevate your craft giving you a real competitive edge.
Athletes are often in the best shape of anyone on earth.
They are highly skilled at their crafts and their relentless work ethics have gotten them this far. Often, they do not have the skills to BE THEM when the lights are on and the camera starts rolling.
It’s more than Media Training.
It’s about being yourself in all things you do.
And training as smart as a performer as you are in your sport.
Whatever your field, as an executive you are shaping how the rest of us see and experience the world around us.
Executives are missing a key element of sustainable success.
Executives are succeeding but burning themselves out in the process.
They have a lot they can learn from high performers on the world stage (and screen and courts and fields.)
Each of us is a performer. Every. Single. One.
Whether our performance: is cooking a meal, or taking a test, whether it is speaking in public or sharing something personal in private…The performers mindset principles apply to every part of our lives. Let’s explore what the best and brightest are doing in the executive arena, the world stage, the brightest lights on fields and courts…and see how those practices can impact our lives for the better.

Joe Towne and Hillary Tuck appear on a bonus episode of That One Audition, a podcast with host Alyshia Ochse. Her podcast is humorous, educational and inspirational. It’s a must listen for those interested in learning from your favorite favorite on-screen storytellers and Hollywood influencers about what they have learned along their artistic journeys.
We were invited to speak to the top 24 high school quarterbacks in the country. These talented young athletes were gathered together as part of the Elite 11, a national annual competition sponsored, in part, by Nike. They were received comprehensive training of their craft, but additionally they received training on authenticity, mindfulness training, and discovering who they are as humans outside of being athletes. We were brought in to speak to these young athletes about what it means to perform on the world stage. The entire process is televised on YouTube and the full documentary ended up on the NFL Network. You can see a clip here.
Is it about “being positive” or is it more than that?
More than that. Here are some videos that help explain.
Is MINDSET just about BEING POSITIVE or is it more than that?
How do I deal with BIG MOMENTS and PRESSURE SITUATIONS?
How do I deal with the constant rejection that comes from being an artist and how can I avoid it impacting how I show up in the future?
Are there books you recommend?
So many books! But we find ourselves talking about these books all the time:
How can I find out more about your programs?
Can you start by telling us a bit about what you are looking for and how you came to find us? And please know…we are happy to jump on a call with you to share the types of programs we offer, what we have done in the past and work together with you to create a program that is uniquely tailored to the needs of your artists, athletes or executives!
Please contact us here to get this conversation started.
How can I book you (and how much does it cost) to have you come and speak at our event?
For any booking inquiries, please contact our management team at YAMA Talent to get the conversation started. Click here to send an email to our team now.
Can you come and offer training to our team (sports, coaching staff or executive team?)
We’d love to! Whether it’s an off-site kind of experience or whether we are working on stage, screen or set…we are totally down.
We’ve been working with groups across many industries for years and we know how powerful it is when people gather in the name of something rad.
We’re here to help. Please contact us here to get this conversation started.
Do you work with Athletes to help them prepare for Media Day, big announcements or through the draft process?
100%! This is something we’re incredibly passionate about. You’re trained in sport and you’re at the top of your game and all of sudden you have a million followers and a giant brand expected to be a rockstar spokesperson for without ever having comprehensive on-camera training. That’s banana pants. We’re here to help. Please contact us here to get this conversation started.
