I’m Carlota Zimmerman, J.D., the Success Strategist and I specialize in bringing the awesome!


US News & World Report called me a “social media expert,” so what are you waiting for? Let’s get to work!

Social media has given artists the ability to reach people in ways both immediate and intimate, ways that would once have been unimaginable. As a former playwright, I am passionate about helping artists achieve. Artists now have immediate access to a global stage. Using social media, creative people can simultaneously develop and promote their professional “voice,” creating, in real time, the opportunities and platforms they need. Successful artists will understand that they have to present themselves as the professionals they wish to become. Sound overwhelming? Maybe… or, maybe it’s kind of liberating! If you, as an artist, are not taking advantages of all the possibilities available on social media, you’re doing yourself and your talent a grave disservice. You are deliberately thwarting your potential. (Baby…why you wanna be like that?) I passionately believe that artists who create a realistic, step-by-step strategy to create the opportunities necessary to their goals, are the most likely to achieve those goals.  (I’m a very humble, down-to-earth woman, so you know, in your Oscar acceptance speech, I’ll just be expecting a very humble, down-to-earth mention about how you couldn’t have done it without me and the Jewish carpenter in the sky. Just make sure I get top billing. #dontmindme)

Since 2008, my method of forensic coaching has empowered people around the world to stop sabotaging themselves, and take back their power. I’ve helped countless people craft the opportunities for professional and personal development that they need! I’ve helped countless people–people just like you–stop talking and start doing. I encourage my clients to dream big,  make an organized plan and then go get it! #wakeuphungry

One of the most rewarding experiences of  having this business, is hearing clients say a variation of “Wow, you made me really believe I can do it!” (Listen. You can give me that stink-eye, but before I’m a coach, I am a woman, and thus, the phrase, “You were right, Carlota,” is always, ALWAYS, going to make me giggle with delight, and then say, “You’re damn right.”) When people believe in themselves, people are generally unstoppable. My passion is to make you understand that you can, with patience, determination and commitment, create a life you love. Today. You can create this life today. You hire me, you get 100% of the best I have to offer: I’m in your corner, Killer! I’m here  to make sure you finish what you start and do right by your talent. I built this business, in large part, to give people the coaching and nurturing I had always wanted. Who doesn’t want an advocate? Who doesn’t want someone to believe in them? I want to be the person who rekindles your confidence and belief in yourself. I nag nurture because I care.  #singoutlouise

I’ll help you define your career goals, whether long-term or immediate. Then, I’ll construct your personalized strategy, enabling you, step-by-step, to realize those objectives. (The words you’re looking for are “thank” and “you.” Put them together and they make a nice sound!) Spoiler alert: me + you= awesomesauce.
