There is no shortage of amazing business content online. Here’s what we’ve gotten the most from. In comments, emails and interviews, it’s one of the most common questions I get. I’ve tried hard to make something very clear on this blog: we’ve learned a lot from our own experiences. But we’ve learned just as much, if not more, from reading about the experiences of the entrepreneurs who were there first.


In 2016 Julie Michaels was nominated for a Prime-Time Emmy Award for Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Comedy or Variety Show (the first woman ever to be nominated for that category) and earned herself an Action Icon Award in 2017. Additionally, between 2017-2019, Julie co-stunt coordinated the show Seal Team alongside her equally accomplished husband Peewee Piemonte, where the duo proudly sought and succeeded in hiring several hundreds of Veteran performers over their pilot and 44 episode run (the efforts of which garnered them an Emmy Nomination). The power couple has coordinated several top award-winning network shows together over the years (How To Get Away With Murder, Jane The Virgin, and Nashville to name a few fan favorites). Despite her dedication and commitment to creating action for television and film, Julie Michaels continues to find her way back in front of the camera. Exactly where loyal fans want her!

Julie’s acting career started rather accidentally; she met producer and actor Joel Silver, who cast her in the role of Denise in the film “Road House”, starring opposite Patrick Swayze and for which she received positive critiques. Encouraged by her early success, Julie continued her acting career and reached stardom in the next few years. She was Freight Train in the action film “Point Break” in 1991, then played Susan in the horror film “Witchboard 2” in 1993, and throughout the ‘90s, enjoyed success featuring in such TV series and films as “Baywatch” (1995-1998), “A Time to Revenge” and “House of Frankenstein” both in 1997.In addition to her acting talents, Julie has used her love for martial arts to work as a stunt double and co-ordinator in the film industry. She launched stunt career in the early ‘90s, and since then has been credited as stunt performer or coordinator in a number of successful films. In the ‘90s she worked on such films as “Last Exit to Earth” in 1996, then “Double Tap”, “Most Wanted”, – both in 1997 – and “Titanic” released in 1997. She has continued her career quite successfully into the new millennium, and after films such as “The Scorpion King” (2002), “Domino” in 2005 and others, but from the mid- 2000s has turned to TV series. She worked on “Ghost Whisperer” from 2005 to 2008, then in 2012 and 2013 on the TV series “The Newsroom”, and in 2014 joined the “Matador” TV series as a stunt coordinator. In recent years, she has worked on “How to Get Away with Murder” (2014-2019), “Jane the Virgin” (2014-2019), and “SEAL Team” (2018-2019), among others, all of which have contributed to her wealth.
