Currently working in television (most recently the Emmy Award winning daytime drama All My Children), commercials, print and independent film, Lisa Gold has turned her attention to leading seminars on the Business of the Business as a way to contribute to others from experience she has gained both as a performer and as one of the owners of Actors Connection. A small mom and pop networking facility in the 90's, Actors Connection has grown into the #1 Networking/Educational facility in New York. The studio today, with over 150 networking events monthly, is a testament to the need and desire of actors needing vital connections that will ultimately lead to their desired success.
