Episode 299: Joe Towne is an award-winning writer and director who got his degree in Acting from the University of Southern California. He’s been a coach for the past 19 years for both businesses and performers – some of whom are selling that product you just bought or starring in that movie you Netflixed last night. This work compelled him to write a book about how our inner reality affects our outer experience, which led him to be a guest on the Dr. Oz show.  As an actor, Joe Towne has worked with people like Jennifer Love Hewitt and Hillary Swank and you can see him opposite Rebel Wilson in Isn’t It Romantic, which premiered in February of 2019 and is now available on iTunes.

Joe Towne is also an acting coach at one of the top studios in Hollywood where he co-created their audition technique program. He works with professional actors and athletes, as they transition from their sport into the entertainment industry.  He also works with corporations bringing Mindset into practice in the workplace.  Last summer Joe helped coached up the top 24 high school quarterbacks in the country at the Elite 11 weekend in Los Angeles. The Actors Mindset program has been in Los Angeles (both independently and at The Aquila School), at USC, UCLA and most recently at the Vancouver Film School. To learn more about Mindset check out this interview on THAT ONE AUDITION podcast.
