At the age of nine, our president & founder Natalia Elizabeth had her first experience running into a “scam agency”. Her mother almost spent thousands of dollars for an “agent” to “sign” her. From that moment on, Natalia made a promise to learn all angles of the industry in order to warn others. Natalia kept her promise by working for agents, casting directors and large studios such as ABC Television Group. Be Your Craft is a community of industry professionals sharing information to help performers find work with confidence. BYC is here for you: providing workshops, classes, one on one coaching, career consultations and more! This is your place to vent, grow and create.

How can I account for all that Natalia does without writing an encyclopedia? It's funny how an unstoppable force of nature like her is also a selfless and empathetic being. She believed in me wholeheartedly since we first met, and it was a contagious feeling. She helped me secure my first talent agent, provided advice and coaching at crucial times, and opened up countless audition opportunities for which I'm eternally grateful. BE YOUR CRAFT IS THE PLACE TO BE!
One of life’s biggest win is meeting Natalia. My confidence, knowledge and exposure to my craft and industry representatives have been amazing. Her sincere commitment to my growth and with her guidance, I booked a role on a major network! Natalia, you’re absolutely the BEST!
"There isn’t anyone I trust more than Natalia Elizabeth when it comes to auditions and advice. She is truly an actor’s actor and finds projects that best fit my “type.” Not only does she have the experience and the training, she’s just someone you immediately like. She doesn’t just talk the talk...she does the walk too. I always look forward to my emails from her and the opportunity to audition for more great projects!"
I first met Natalia in an acting class and was amazed by her work and her generosity on stage as a performer-she is truly fearless! In my search for an agent, I reached out to Natalia for assistance-after our chat, within a few days I had my first meeting with an agent and was signed on! About two weeks later I BOOKED an international commercial/print AD!!! Natalia pushes and challenges you to stick with it and she does not take any BS from anyone-NO EXCUSE ZONE. She is the friend and mentor you always needed and a constant reminder of what it means to fight for your dreams.
I first met Natalia when we were both students at the Actor's Group in Orlando. She helped me to get my first legitimate representation, which in turn led to my first SAG role and my SAG eligibility, but beyond that, she has been a source of inspiration and motivation and a true friend. She is what we as artists need to be to one another as we keep going in this industry. She is always positive, always willing to help, and genuinely wants to see everyone succeed.
Natalia is the mentor that every actor hopes for. She always goes above and beyond and is an incredible source of support and is truly an actor’s advocate. She has secured me a great deal of auditions and when I BOOKED by her referral, she was there for me every step of the way; we were a team. Natalia has helped me with my career goals, auditions, industry questions, agent referrals and help, taping, and above all we have developed a wonderful friendship. She has impeccable instincts, character, and talent. Natalia is an actor’s dream, and I feel so beyond blessed to have her guidance and support in my journey.
