YOU on Video

4 comprehensive training modules on acting and performance and writing training

Imagine how much better you will feel after knowing what to say, how to say it and how to feel comfortable on video!

Find out how to be MORE YOU, the BEST OF YOU when you press play - not the robotic zombie version that sometimes shows up on camera.

Be YOU - how you are one-on-one with friends and clients (ON VIDEO):

Authentic, confident, quirky, powerful, serious, spiritual, heart-centered, commanding, sweet, dynamic, raw, badass and/or the funny person you know you are but don't know how to  bring to the shot-the show- when the video is on you for your close up.

You'll discover how to...

  • speak your Truth confidently
  • be captivating
  • bring your personality to each video and
  •  hit the ground running with videos you can use in your business.

Will they be playful, serious, spiritual?

It really depends - on your True Essence- which we will be narrowing in on during the very first lesson.

Find your sweet spot before you post your videos publicly!

Video Performance: everything you could want to know about being real, bringing the best of your personality to your videos and connecting with your audiences on video.


    Do you know what qualities you lead with? In acting this is you castability- the roles you get auditions for. You may think of yourself in a certain way but it doesn't match with how you come across. When that happens you don't get the job. You'll get a powerful exercise in this training that integrates who you are with how you come across and gets you into alignment so you attract the right audience/ clients.

    Want to know how the celebrities do it? Discover how actors create instant rapport, connection and emotions with their viewers.
    This training is practical and fun!

    What are the benefits of each and how the heck do you shoot your LIVE STREAMS from your computer? I'll go over easy set ups.

    What if I told you that CONFIDENCE is an inside job? It is! In this lesson you'll learn how to deal with naysayers (aka haters/ judgers) and make sure you are excellent at what you are presenting. Plus you'll get personal style tips from me (I was a stylist in a former life) Tips for your hair, your make-up and what colors to wear.

    Is it better to have a script memorized, use a teleprompter, or improvise?

    I'll give you the pros and cons of each.

    Discover the techniques actors use to book jobs, read 'cold' (never seeing a script before they have to read it in front of a casting director or producer and on video) and how they create the connection so they get the job.
  • BONUS: The difference between presenting on video and on stage.

    There's a big difference between shooting on video and presenting on stage. There's also a big difference between shooting a close up, a medium shot and a long shot. (Part of the professional actors bag of tricks which I'll be sharing with you in YOU on Video) This way you are always prepared and always professional.

Brenda Adelman’s guidance on upping my video skills was clear, concise and spot on. I learned to just be myself when using my computer or phone to record videos! Her expertise is real and practical. I plan to work with her again to learn more. I have done two video tele summits now and applied what I learned from Brenda to Relax and Breathe .”

Tech Basics

No video program is complete without the basics included.
While this course is based on giving you everything you need to know to shoot videos you feel confident about and like you are bringing all of YOU to- I've got you covered in this basic tech department too.
You'll receive LIGHTING tips to make you look your best.
COMPOSITION tips to shoot a good frame.
AUDIO tips so you sound good (I've got acting techniques about this too :) &
EQUIPMENT tips so you don't have to spend a lot- or any money to look great.

This is for Coaches, Healers and Small Business Owners who thought they were only going to be BEHIND THE SCENES...Surprise...Surprise...enter Facebook Live and well, everything video!

This program was created because while I have years and years of acting training and experience which has made it easy for me to speak on stages, and video summits and on TV and in my business videos- I realized most of my colleagues in the heart-centered solopreneur business circles that I am in did not.

I've heard horror stories of the panic that sets in, the wine or chocolate involved (the over-eating of it- that is), the sweating and still not looking good.

I see videos all the time that show no personality, are robotic (not relaxed) and.....dare I say it...BORING! I did...I said it.

There's just too much competition out there to not have the real YOU come through. The REAL YOU is AMAZING.

I've had clients come to me who are super talented BADASS experts and yet as soon as they had to go on camera they turned into people who showed a lack of confidence, no real skills (where to look, where to put the light so they look their best, etc)

I want to help you and now I this 4 module comprehensive online Program, YOU on Video.

This is the DIY version- so you can go at your own pace.

So you can grow your business while showing your tribe who you really are!
