Yes!! You Can Ditch "Zoom Fright" and Overcome Your Imposter Syndrome!
Does The Thought of Running an Online Class Make You Cringe?
Has Fear of Public Speaking Extended To
It Doesn't Have To.
Become So Adept At Online Facilitation
Are the Antidote For Screen Fatigue!
If the Pandemic Is Costing You Clients and Hurting Your Income...
Can't teach in person? Meet clients face to face? Or run live events right now? Maybe your city or town opened back up this summer, but what's going to happen this fall? This winter? This spring?
If You're Feeling Clumsy Around Teaching Virtually, and It's Keeping You From Offering Online Workshops...
You see everyone else pivoting to teaching online and now you feel like it's too late to start, or who would come to your workshop (when there are so many offerings being run by educators more famous than you)?
If Teaching Online Feels OVERWHELMING...
Feeling frozen? You know you should be teaching online but don't know where to start? Which platform to use? How to price your classes? Or what tech gear you need so you don't look, or sound, like a fool?
There's Good News!
IT'S NOT TOO LATE...
YOU Can Make Public Speaking
(Online & In-Person)
Something You Do
And YOU Can Be Doing It
Are You a Teacher? Workshop Facilitator?
Therapist or Event Organizer?
Are You a Sex Educator or Sex Ed Adjacent?
Would you like to hone your online teaching & virtual facilitation skills? Would you like to teach online workshops, be invited to speak at virtual retreats and festivals, book online coaching clients... And have it feel EASY?
Imagine Being an Engaging, In-Demand, Online Facilitator
Who Runs DYNAMIC Online Workshops with EASE...
Would That Help YOU Pay the Bills This Winter?
Imagine Other Educators Recommending Your Classes
To Their Clients On Social Media,
Telling Everyone YOU Give "GREAT Zoom!"
Would That Feed Your Heart & Keep You Going During These Uncertain Times?
MANY educators are holding themselves back from teaching online because they haven't figured out how to juggle all of the numerous moving pieces! And some educators courageously tried teaching online but fumbled their first attempts, possibly losing clients and followers in the process...
Teaching engaging online classes where YOU feel comfortable and your masterful teaching INSPIRES your attendees to return to your classes and programs over and over... It's easier when you have help and support from those of us who've overcome the technological glitches and honed our skills. It's easier and MORE FUN when you have like-minded, fellow sex-positive educators cheering you on!
Why Didn't I Panic When the Pandemic Hit?
To be honest, I did freak out about the lockdown, but NOT about teaching.
I was shocked and worried for the health and safety of my friends and loved ones. For my educator colleagues, if any of us had to cancel in-person retreats (which many of us did), I knew we wouldn't get the venue & catering deposits back and that those losses would hit us hard financially. There was grief, upheaval, and uncertainty about what our day-to-day lives were going to look like. And locking-down meant we wouldn't get to see our beloved sex geeky peers at our usual conferences and retreats that nourish our hearts and passions and keep us going.
When the pandemic hit and I myself had to cancel all of my in-person classes, I was already set up to "pivot" to teaching online.
Making the business savvy choice to turn on my laptop camera, switch my Eventbrite ticket details to "Location: Zoom," and move my classes online didn't feel like the end of my career. It felt like the next right move.
The next right move is analogous to sex... Imagine your favorite vibrator losing its charge right in the middle of some great sexy time —OH NO!— But rather than panicking, you reach over for your NEXT FAVORITE vibrator or toy and keep the good times going... Being prepared, having options, and feeling at ease with those options... THAT's how you make the next right move.
Moving all my teaching to online offerings in 2020 was me reaching for my next favorite toy. And it can be THAT EASY (and PLEASURABLE) for you, too. It just takes a little help and guidance from those who... ahem... Came before you. ;)
Because I had already been doing Facebook LIVES, Instagram LIVES and 1-on-1 coaching on Skype & Zoom for years, I was able to KEEP REACHING and CONTINUE HELPING my fans and followers.
And I was able to KEEP BRINGING IN MONEY.
Because I had already taught, coached, or been interviewed 1000-plus hours virtually on video and on podcasts... Because I had shot over 900 Youtube videos (with over 5-million views), and because I had the privilege of being on set and beamed in-studio via satellite for TV shows on NETFLIX, Oprah's OWN network, and The Doctors... I had logged the hours of real-life experience to feel comfortable, authentic, and at ease appearing virtually...
The camera was no longer my enemy, nor was the microphone.
In fact, all that experience had helped me learn my way around ensuring good sound, lighting, and video, which meant I could troubleshoot and tweak situations when they came up. The only enemies I had left were my imposture syndrome and the occasional Zoom update.
While Zoom updates will always plague you when you least expect it, my passion for helping people in their time of need gave me the power to overcome (or at least make peace with) my imposter syndrome. My ease, peace with myself, and passion gave me an edge when I was teaching virtually... I was MORE ENGAGING and MORE POSITIVE. People found my online classes MORE FUN, MORE REFRESHING, and were recommending my classes to ALL THEIR FRIENDS.
YOU Can Be This Kind of Teacher!
You Can Log the Experience & Practice To Feel At Ease.
And It's Easier Than You Think...
The Time To Offer Online Classes That Transform Lives (And Build Your Business)... That Time Is NOW.
Boring Online Teachers Don't Generate Word-Of-Mouth Advertising,
Or Have Attendees Hire Them For Private Coaching,
Or Clients Begging Them To Announce Their NEXT Class So They Can Invite Their Friends...
YOU deserve to become that engaging, authentic, online teacher facilitating virtual workshops that inspire and encourage YOUR students to overcome their own fears of Online Learning!
And the most powerful way to become THAT teacher for others is to overcome your own FEARS.
And the most powerful way to overcome your own fears is to take CONSISTENT BABY-STEPS WITH A SUPPORTIVE PEER GROUP towards running your own workshops!
How about we do it together? This fall! So you have all your skills implemented and momentum created in time for winter!
