Become renowned as a true expert in your space and have dream clients consistently seeking you out to work with you
As an entrepreneur or sales professional, you have a desire to be more visible on video.
You know the power of visibility, especially on video – more clients, more opportunities , and greater impact.
but there’s a problem .
You’re great at what you do, but not enough people know it.
You want to be more visible on in your field and you know that video is a great opportunity for you to build your brand, but …
You don’t like the way you look or sound on camera
You worry that you’ll make a big mistake in a video that will be out there negatively impacting your brand for all of time
When it comes time to “go live” or jump on camera you come to a screeching halt, filled with self-doubt
You aren’t sure of what to say on the video – why would anyone watch?
It feels overwhelming and time consuming to create video content
Or, perhaps you’re already creating video content, but it’s not getting the traction you hoped for and you can’t figure out why.
And so you just sit back, letting your competitors who are creating video content pass you by. You know that many of them aren’t even as good as you, and it pains you to see them get all the opportunities. You know that you have a window of time to really establish your mark and generate as many clients and opportunities as possible, and you feel that’s slipping away. You know that you need to master this skill, but you don’t know where to start.
Well I’m here to tell you, it’s absolutely possible for you, and I’ve done it myself even with no background in video production or even formal experience in the first industry I was creating videos for.
Let me explain:
At age 28 I left the corporate world for good to become an entrepreneur. I was making a lucrative six figure + income selling digital marketing services for a large global brand, but I knew that I was called to do something greater with my life. So I made the leap, leaving my corporate job without too much of a plan (this is NOT necessarily recommended, haha), and had to start over fresh. I knew that I wanted to do sales coaching, but here’s the problem – I’d literally never done it before and had no idea where to start.
What I WAS very clear on was that I had six months’ of income saved up to live on before I would have to return to corporate, and that the only thing I knew would help me build a successful company would be to become well-known as a sales coach.
And so off I went, promoting myself all over town as “The Six Figure Sales Coach” (catchy, huh?) 🙂
I created networking events, a Facebook group, and more, but the most effective thing by far that I did was to start to share my knowledge about the sales process using videos.
Several times a week I started posting a video on LinkedIn with a quick sales tip.
Now, there are several important things to note about these videos:
They weren’t edited (not that I didn’t want to; I just didn’t know how to)
They weren’t scripted
They took an average of 5 minutes or less to create
Many of them weren’t all that good!
But guess what? It didn’t matter. I literally didn’t know what I was doing, but I was floored at the results that these videos generated. Within weeks I started having people reach out to me saying they’d seen my videos online and wanted to work with me.
They said they felt like they knew me, and they appreciated how much I had shared about the sales process in my videos. They thought if they could learn that much from me for free, they could definitely get more out of working with me as a coach and consultant. The conversations I had with these people were easy, and they readily signed up to work with me because they felt like they already knew me and trusted me.
I even had one inbound contact from a video I filmed in my car, on a call phone, that turned into over $100k in business, countless referrals and became one of my very favorite clients of all time.
I quickly built brand recognition in the field of sales coaching, and within about three years I had built a business that was doing just shy of half a million in revenue per year.
Remember, this is all from scratch, without ever having done sales coaching before.
Now, while I have moved on from sales coaching to personal brand strategy work, I still use the power of video to demonstrate my expertise and to generate literally hundreds of inbound contacts to my business per month. My videos, if you watch them, are still not scripted, still not edited, and still not highly produced (although I hope they’re at least a teeny bit better than they were when I first started!). But boy do they work.
I realized from this experience the massive opportunity that exists for professionals who become consistent about showcasing their expertise using video, and I’m passionate about helping you master this process to become known as the true thought leader and expert that you are!
video confidence coaching
To help you master this skill and finally build the professional brand you’ve dreamed of for so long, I’ve created a 90 day program, Video Confidence Coaching, that will help you master the mindset and techniques needed to become confident on camera, as well as to actually start creating video content that generates inbound leads and opportunities for you. The primary focus of our work together in this program will be building your brand creating videos for LinkedIn, but the concepts will apply to any other social platform you want to use.
alright, how does this work?
BY THE COMPLETION OF THIS PROGRAM, YOU WILL HAVE:
Total confidence in how you show up on camera and zero hesitation when it’s time to hit record or to go live
Clarity on what social platforms make the most sense for you to create video content for – I have extensive experience in LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and can help you create videos for all of those.
Clarity on who your ideal client is – demographics, psychographics, what questions they have that you can answer on video to establish yourself as an expert and resource for them
Clear positioning of yourself as an expert – a succinct way of introducing yourself and establishing your credibility in your videos and your supporting materials. You’ll be able to clearly articulate why you’re the one clients would want to work with
Developed a natural style of delivery on camera that’s articulate, powerful and doesn’t sound scripted
A simple and easy to use technology toolkit that you use for your video creation
A call to action that gets ideal clients reaching out to you

A schedule and system for integrating regular video creation into your daily life to get max results in a short amount of time
A content calendar system created so that you’re never ‘winging it’ and always confident that the video you’re creating is going to bring value and generate inbound leads
does this actually work?
Yep, it does.
I generate almost all of my inbound leads on social media, especially LinkedIn, just by putting out a few videos a week and then responding to inbound requests that come my way as a result of the videos.
Here’s a screenshot of my connection request inbox. About 200 of these requests came in over 2 days as a result of one single video I did.
There is a method and a strategy that makes this work, though, and it needs to be done the right way. That’s where I come in – I’ve spent years refining this system and can’t wait to give you all my secrets to make it work for you!
Hear what my client Don Steichen has to say about how Video Confidence Coaching helped him become more confident on camera:
consider me your best kept secret 🙂

You may be wondering…
Will videos really help me be better known as an expert?
Yes, in fact:
72% of businesses say video has improved their conversion rate. (Wyzowl)
52% of consumers say that watching videos makes them more confident in online purchase decisions. (Invodo)
65% of executives visit the marketer’s website and 39% call a vendor after viewing a video. (Forbes)
Look, you are an expert and you are great at what you do. People are looking for what you do online, and they are looking to be guided. The only missing link is right now, they aren’t finding YOU as they look for experts, so it’s time to fix that!
This is not just a vanity play for me, and I’m not doing this just for fun. I need these videos to generate inbound opportunities for me. Will they work?
Of course this isn’t a vanity play for you! It isn’t for me either 🙂 I know that you’re too busy these days to create videos just for fun. You need them to create results for you, and quickly. I can confidently say that the #1 driver of new opportunities in my business is publishing thought leadership videos online, especially on LinkedIn. My new client opportunities, speaking opportunities and media opportunities come in almost entirely from people who watch my videos on LinkedIn and reach out to work with me. That is the only reason I do the videos, and I know that’s the reason you want to do them as well. You can have the same thing happen in your business – it just requires a solid strategy, which I’m here to help you create.
Can I really make that much progress in 12 weeks?
Yes. This is simply a new skill set, much like when you learned to use new technology like Facebook or your iPhone for the first time. Think about it – it felt a little clunky at first, but it didn’t take you long to get the hang of it and start to really use that tool for your benefit! This is the exact same way. By creating a safe space for you to experiment, make mistakes and start to really master this skill, you will be soaring in no time and fully confident in your ability to master video for your brand.
Can it really be this simple?
Yes! I didn’t believe it either, but it really is as simple as the process I will teach you to do.
I’m no model, and I’m not super confident in how I look. Can I still really look and sound good on video?
Yes. That’s where my background in Journalism and Image Consulting come into play to help you. I’ll help you select the best colors, clothes, hairstyle and makeup (if you wear it) to wear on camera to look your best. I’ve also done extensive training in on-camera presentation skills, so you’ll be able to use all my tricks and secrets to look and sound your best on video. I promise you will love the way you look and sound!
That said, I also want to be clear that becoming more visible is not a beauty competition 🙂 What it is about is being articulate and confident in your delivery, which is what I’ll help you to do. The beauty of this process is that the more YOU you are, the more the right people will connect with you. This isn’t about you being for everyone. I’m certainly not for everyone! But I was enough for you that you showed up here and are considering working with me. Your ideal clients will do the same for you.
What if I don’t have the time?
If you’re serious about establishing your expertise in your space, the truth is that you really don’t have time to waste. The market is getting more flooded every single day, and each day that passes by without you being visible is a wasted opportunity. Our work together will not take long. It’s just 12 weeks, and most calls are only 45 minutes. That’s it. It’s a miniscule time investment in exchange for having a working lead generation system that you can use forever. Plus, the truth is you’re probably spending a lot of time right now on lead generation that isn’t working. Invest a fraction of that time into learning how to master video, and your ROI on that time investment will be huge.
Is it worth the investment?
How many clients or new opportunities will it take you to recoup your investment? Probably not many. The number of opportunities you’re missing out on right now because you’re NOT as visible as you could be as an expert in your space is probably huge. The other great thing about this video content is that it will continue to sell you to prospects who don’t say yes right away. Think of it as an automated lead nurturing system that ultimately will convert more clients for you without you having to do any extra direct outreach to them. I can’t tell you how many prospective clients have said no to me at first, only to reach back out 1 – 6 months later to say they’ve been watching my videos, and they’re now ready to buy. The investment is a drop in the bucket compared to the return you’ll get if you follow the process.

still wondering if video confidence coaching is right for you?
At the end of the day, whether you take action on this or not is your choice. However, if you are excited for the opportunity to finally be known as a true expert in your space, and you’re just struggling with some fear or self-doubt about whether or not you can finally really do this, I warmly invite you to let me help you through the process.
There is nothing I love more in the world than seeing my clients light up when they finally see themselves shining as the true experts that they are.
You don’t have to know how to do it all now, you just have to take the leap and give yourself the support you deserve in building this next level of your personal brand. I’ll be here for you the whole way and I believe in you. You are not alone in this and I’d love nothing more than to help you make this dream a reality and finally conquer those limiting beliefs that have held you back for so long!
You have what it takes to be successful at video, and it simply takes having the right coach and guide to help you master the skill. I would be honored to be that person for you.
