READY TO START YOUR THOUGHT LEADER JOURNEY?
If you’re a creative entrepreneur, coach or consultant who is ready to finally escape the time for money trap and make a greater impact on the world through online products and services, then you already know that…
Video is hands down the best (and fastest) way to attract raving fans, spread new ideas and build a solid foundation for future revenue streams.
HERE'S WHAT YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT ADDING VIDEO TO YOUR ONLINE STRATEGY...
BE SEEN AS A TRUE EXPERT
Tired of clients telling you how to do your job when you’re the expert? They do this because they lack trust in your expertise.
Creating videos that educate prospects and clients on information they lack, silences the nay-sayers and builds loyal followers who won’t nitpick, micromanage or self-sabotage the results you’re helping them achieve.
DEMAND HIGHER RATES AS YOU PIVOT
The more videos you release on social media, the more word will spread about your expertise. Higher demand allows you to raise your rates and make more money in less time.
With your extra time, you'll finally be able to work ON your business rather than IN it, without sacrificing your paycheck.
TRANSFORM INTO YOUR BEST SELF
The negative self talk that comes with video can be intense. As you push through your self-doubt, you’ll be breaking down limiting beliefs that you didn’t even know you had.
This will have a ripple effect on all other areas within your business and your life. Prepare for an immense growth in self-confidence and in fully becoming a creator of your own destiny.
JOIN INDUSTRY CONVERSATIONS
Showing up on video creates a celebrity-like status. In time you'll be sought out for expert advice within your industry.
You'll be invited to speaking gigs, podcast interviews, book deals and other unexpected opportunities, allowing you to scale your business faster by getting in front of entirely new prospects.
BUT IN REALITY...
VIDEO SUCKS, DOESN'T IT?
✅ You've spent hours setting up your shot, yet it looks like a third grader filmed it.
✅ You can hardly get a word out without your voice cracking or running out of breath.
✅ The cringe-worthiness of your on camera performance could be used as blackmail.
✅ Editing makes you want to rip out all your hair and scream at the top of your lungs.
✅ And when you do FINALLY post it ... crickets.
NOW IMAGINE, WHAT IF YOU COULD...
- Film an entire month’s worth of content in only a few hours without blinking an eye.
- Confidently hit publish without fear that no one will watch.
- Release one video each week that builds your thought leadership and online authority.
- Attract new leads every day that love what you’re doing and are begging to hire you.
HERE'S WHY MOST BEGINNERS GIVE UP…
The road to creating a video is filled with potholes! As a busy entrepreneur, you're already doing way more than one person can handle.
You don’t have the time to waste!
Without a roadmap, you'll be tempted to give up before you ever experience the impact video can have on your business.
TOP 5 REASONS YOU FAIL WITH DIY VIDEO:
YOU LISTEN TO SELF-DOUBT
This looks different for every person, but it’s never pretty -- our negative self talk can be extremely harsh when filming videos. You might hate what you see on camera, curse yourself every time you mess up or worry that what you have to share isn’t valuable. The voice inside your head can easily derail you if you aren't careful.
YOU START WITH THE WRONG VIDEO
You have an amazing idea: the perfect explainer video or an intricate Instagram ad. While the idea sound great, it's followed by an incredibly frustrating creation process. Instead of trying a simpler approach, you scrap the whole thing and conclude "video is too complicated".
YOU AVOID BEING "THE FACE"
It's easy to hide behind your product or service and hope that will speak for itself, but in today's hyper-personal social media world, that doesn't fly. When you start to share authentically and let people in behind-the-scenes, they'll see your effort and expertise and will become emotionally invested in your journey.
YOU QUESTION YOUR VALUE
Think back to where you were five years ago. If you have value to offer your past self, you have value to share with the world. Having expertise doesn’t mean you’re the best at what you do, it just means that you know something more than the person beside you.
YOU HAVE NO STRATEGY & LACK CONSISTENCY
You create an IGTV video one day and then upload a video to Facebook, followed by a random video that you send to your newsletter. The lack of consistency on one platform is ruining your chance of getting traction and building a loyal following that loves you.
BUT HERE'S A SECRET...
EVERYONE FEELS THE SAME WAY!
The bar for video is soooo low right now. There are no rules and everyone is still figuring it out (including those at the top, I’ve seen it first hand).
Think about it, you see a mediocre video in your feed, are you judging that person or just impressed they're taking action?
We are still in the infancy stages of video, making this the BEST time to start.
You need a step-by-step roadmap that points out roadblocks and potholes before you hit them, so you can save time and actually ENJOY the process of creating videos!
By avoiding the obstacles, you can finally see your video vision come to fruition while your competition is left scratching their heads, wondering, “how does she do it?”

– Glenn Allen, Course Creator Coach
“I've wanted to create videos for years, but I couldn’t get past my imposter syndrome and fear of being on camera. Now, I’m hosting weekly webinars for my agency, using video in ALL of our sales funnels and business is booming!
If you’re questioning your ability to do video, I hope my story inspires you to push past your fears. Amanda's course is your answer!
It’s genuinely worth every penny - I recouped the cost in just few weeks with a new client from one our video ads!”
– Amelia Clay, Marketing Agency Owner

STILL HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE DIY VIDEO ROADMAP?
Are there any investments I’ll need to make once I’m inside the program?
How do I know if I’m a good fit for the program?
How much time do I need to get the most out of the program?
What if I already own gear?
I’ve never used Premiere Pro, is that okay?
Will the program help me create videos that look like yours?
Will my videos still be high quality if I shoot on my phone?
I don’t have a specific “filming” area, can I still use the course?
Can I hire an intern to execute on the editing tutorials??
What if I want to outsource my video editing?
"Amanda's program gave me the confidence to get in front of the camera! Her step-by-step process is easy to follow and tailored for the beginner by guiding every step of the process. It's so easy, even your mom could do it!"
– Andy Humphrey, Supply Store Business Owner
“Filming and editing does not come naturally to me. I’m not tech savvy so “just figuring out” doesn’t work. Amanda’s course made it easy and enjoyable: simple, fun videos that directly and specifically told me what I needed (and didn’t need) and how to do exactly what I need to grow my brand as a small business owner. It’s rare to find education so spot on and thorough with no fillers. Thanks Amanda!”
– Dara Zycherman, Minimalist Coach at Less Equals More
HERE'S WHAT PAST STUDENTS HAVE TO SAY
"This program was perfect for me! I have needed to create videos for my business but have had no time and no budget to make it happen, at least that's what I thought.
I am so grateful to have found a program that offers bite-size modules that allow me to learn at my own pace and offers options to work with every budget. Not to mention that you actually get personal instruction from Amanda and support from a community of current and past students. In less than a week I have learned to create professional quality videos in an efficient manner.”
– Chris Paine, Owner of Collective Flame Consulting LLC
“I knew video was incredibly important but was completely overwhelmed with where to start and I didn't have the time to research it on my own.
I was so happy to find Amanda’s course! She covered everything I needed... from what videos to create to meet my business goals, how to clarify my core message, how to be confident and clear on camera, what trade-offs to expect in equipment and software, how to edit and outsource... and all in a way that was bite-size and doable (even as a busy agency owner).
I now fully understand the video world now and how to jump in. It is no longer overwhelming and I feel confident in taking my next steps in video. Cannot recommend Amanda or this course high enough!”
– Paul Hagey, Agency Owner at HageyMedia
“I teach people how to draw, and I’ve wanted to use video for my tutorials for months!!! I bought some equipment, asked for advice from friends, recorded test footage... But I just couldn’t bring myself to record video consistently. Every video took me HOURS to film, and HOURS more to edit.
If I wanted to grow my business with video, I needed real help.
Amanda’s course and her personal coaching during the office hours gave me the kick I needed to get over my video fears. It helped me to finally put the process in place to create weekly videos for my business. Five weeks after publishing a video each week, I was approached by a big-name publisher and signed a contract with them! A dream come true.
This is powerful stuff!
I highly recommend Amanda’s program to anyone who is serious about growing their business with video (for real!), and needs to know the exact steps to get there.”
– Tatyana Deniz, Kawaii-Style Online Art Teacher
“Taking Amanda’s DIY Video course was completely worth my time, nervousness, and shyness. Shooting video was so intimidating before working with Amanda. Not just from being or appearing in videos, but more so from the production of videos. ‘What happen’s if my videos suck?’ was a bigger worry than ‘how will I look or sound?’
I have to say that Amanda eased all those worries and made it so easy to take each step at my own comfort level. I am now completely on the other side of my video insecurities and I am ever so grateful for her program and her charisma with teaching.”
– Baldo Garza, VP at Slenderella Clinc
“Amanda’s course arrived in a perfect moment for me. I have always wanted to have an online presence and could never figured out what exactly would work for my business.
Additionally, I’m always busy and have a 4 year old who was only going to preschool for a few hours twice a week. Moreover, I had no motivation to learn from scratch and collect information from different sources. It even took me a while to get motivation to start the course.
However, after I started it, I was eager to learn from Amanda and watch more of her YouTube videos. She lays out the content in a straightforward way that’s easy to follow. She is clear and very authentic.
I was always afraid about the editing part, but her videos on editing explain everything so well that it made my fear go away. You do need to put in effort to start making videos, but at least with Amanda’s course, you don’t waste your time gathering the information you need to start your online presence. I can’t recommend it enough!”
– Monica Furchi, Massage Therapist
“I started this program with ZERO video experience. After a lifetime career of being an electrical engineer and a father of four, I had a lot of life lessons that I felt called to share. Amanda (my daughter) kept telling me to start creating videos.
Video is certainly challenging, even with the right steps. I genuinely cannot imagine trying to figure this all out on my own! I’m so incredibly grateful for this program. Even as Amanda’s father, she doesn’t have the time to walk me through this step-by-step in person, but the course makes it feel like she’s right there by me the whole time.
I’ve now filmed over 6 videos and am feeling more and more confident with each one. I haven’t officially launched just yet, but I’m planning to very soon!”
– Attila Horvath (this is my dad!), Author
“I knew NOTHING about creating videos, let alone how to edit. I've watched Amanda's Youtube videos in the beginning stages of starting our business because we just couldn't afford to hire.
Following her journey through Youtube inspired me to take a step forward and create videos for our business www.kgbrunning.com. I'm proud to say that I was one of the first to participate in her DIY Video Roadmap course. She did an AMAZING job and took me step-by-step through the video editing process. I was VERY impressed at how my first video turned out (only 1-day to film and edit).
I am forever grateful for her and will continue to keep learning. I highly recommend Amanda's DIY Video Roadmap course, Thank you Amanda!!! <3”
– Joanna Callaway, E-Commerce Store Owner at KG Running
“The course is well-organized with excellent resources and demonstrations, making it easy to work through the entire course or pick and choose what you need to know. I feel more confident in making excellent videos with the knowledge I've gained from working through the course.”
– Kimberly Howard, Photographer
THE DIY VIDEO ROADMAP IS PERFECT FOR YOU IF...
#1 You're just getting started with your video efforts.
You’ve been so busy working IN your business, year in and year out and you’ve decided to put your foot down and say “enough is enough!” You’re finally ready to prioritize launching your online presence and grab your slice of the online market. You don’t want to reinvent the wheel, you want someone to show you the exact steps you need to take.
#2 You’ve been trying to create videos for months (or even years).
You’ve bought gear in the past and spent longer than you’d like to admit filming videos that you were too embarrassed to post. Ultimately, you felt foolish for thinking this was going to be easy. It’s been long enough for the wounds to heal and try again, but this time you want proper guidance.
#3 You’re a go getter and a self starter.
You set your eyes on the prize and run toward it with all your might. You know video is challenging, but you’re passionate and confident about embarking on this journey. You have a growth mindset and realize that with each business challenge you overcome, you experience breakthroughs and become a stronger individual because of it.
#4 You’re eager to master the skill of creating videos.
Outsource all the fun? No thank you! You’re excited about learning a new skill and see this as an opportunity to boost your resume. Plus, being able to shoot videos will open up a whole new level of creativity that you’ve been craving in your life. Get off the computer, explore and capture life! Let’s do this thing!
#5 You’ve already figured out how to produce videos.
You’ve got this video thing figured out and your audience is loving the content you’re producing, BUT you also know it could be better. Filming one take videos is a breeze, but you’re ready to uplevel your skillset and learn to create high-quality YouTube style content that dives deep into a subject area. Or maybe you’ve figured out YouTube, but need a faster method for producing videos - one that doesn’t take 8 hours per video!
#6 You're ready to get over your fear of being on camera.
You’re aware of the insecurities you currently feel in front of the camera and are excited to reach a whole new level of confidence by breaking through that fear. You’ve heard my story of overcoming my anxieties in front of the lens and how it’s changed my life and believe in your ability to do the same (heck yes, you can!)
#7 You’re ready to become known as the expert you know you are!
Up until this point, your advice has fallen on dead ears and you’re ready to find active listeners who resonate with the knowledge you have to share. There’s no drive quite like proving yourself to those that have discounted you in the past. With video, you’ll leave the naysayers scratching their heads saying “wow, I was an idiot for not listening”.
