can we be honest for a sec? moving to l.a. 
is scary stuff. but I'm here for ya, babe.
There is no need to "wing it." With LA Bound, you will feel totally prepared for the biggest move of your life. 
moving to los angeles sounds really cool, until you start to think about the logistics. 

Then it moves from "really cool" to "holy crap, I'm not sure if I can do this."
You have a dream in your heart. It's whispering "Go to Hollywood! Live out your dreams!"

And then your Ego kicks in. Not whispering, but more of a SHOUT: "Are you kidding? That's a huge move! And most people don't make it! You think YOU will?!"


Trust me, I've been there!


When I moved to Los Angeles 8 years ago, I was scared AF. I didn't know anyone. I didn't know what I was doing. It was not a fun experience.
but after working on 26 television shows, i can honestly tell you it was completely worth it!
So i decided to take everything I know and put it into a book to make moving to l.a. so much easier for you.
i can't take away your nerves (those are a good thing!), but i can help you become as prepared as possible, so that moving to l.a. can be a totally feasible thing.
Basically, I'm giving you everything i wish i had when i moved to los angeles. because i want your experience to be so much better than mine!

Meet Erica Wernick,
Hollywood's Success Coach
my own hollywood journey started out bumpy, to say the least.
After moving from Philadelphia, with a dream of designing graphics for television, I booked my first TV show within 2 weeks. In the last 8 years, I've worked on 26 TV shows. 

I know, pretty crazy, right?!

It sounds glamorous, but I promise you it was not.

When I moved to LA, I only knew 3 people living in the city and I wasn't close with any of them.

I didn't have any connections. I didn't know what I was doing.

Hell, I tried to drive from Culver City to Burbank on the 405 in rush hour on a Friday. I was CLUELESS!!!

I cried a lot. I broke down. It was a really scary experience as I slept on a friend of a friend's couch and looked for apartments.

Eventually, I found my way. But I don't want you to find your way eventually. I want you to find your way quickly.

That's why I wrote this book. There are essentials that I wish I knew before I moved. And once you know them, I promise your move will be effortless.

It will still feel nerve-wracking because any big leap will feel that way. But you won't have break downs like I did. You'll be on top of everything and totally prepared!


The two most important things you need to know when you move to la: where to live and how much money you need.

Without knowing these things, it's likely you'll end up moving back home.

But don't worry, I've got you covered. These are the two most important chapters in the book, and I go through them thoroughly.
I just gotta say that you're amazing and very inspirational! I can't stop babbling to my friends and family about LA Bound. You put all my fears about moving to LA at ease. I can't thank you enough for all your efforts in providing insights and opportunities for people to know more about the industry life in LA. 

All this valuable information will take years to discover and you figured out a way to have it easily accessible for people to find. So for all that, I am truly thankful.

I want to say thank you for your website, your ebook, and all of your awesome tips! It has made the idea of moving to LA less of a terrifying pipe-dream and more a realistic plan-of-action. I don't think I would feel as confident about moving if it weren't for your help!

I have been talking about getting to LA for years. My daughter is 14, has been acting since she was 5, and I have been trying to work out the perfect plan to make the move. Your book will be the secret tool and guide we’ve been looking for to make this happen. Moving is scary, but with LA Bound I feel much more confident!
