GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO
Have you got fire in your belly but a voice that feels stuck in your throat?
GUESS WHAT? THE OLD RULES ABOUT PUBLIC SPEAKING ARE TOTAL BS.
If you want to rethink what power even sounds like...
Make public speaking your own...
And find your literal voice...
GOOD. We need your ideas, your fire, you plus ALL the permission. Grab my weekly newsletter (AKA love letter to your voice) and let's get a little sweaty!
LIKING YOUR VOICE IS A REVOLUTIONARY ACT
But talking about it can feel super slippery. Like, I don’t like my voice? But I’m not sure why… or how that happened? Or what to do about it?
Clarity about what’s going on with your voice is freeing.
Knowing how to like it and use it well is power.
If you're uncomfortable speaking in meetings or on stage, exhausted trying to convey authority, dodging telling your story, getting constantly talked over, or if you feel like you're in an (oof) toxic relationship with your own voice—it affects everything:
- your confidence and joy
- how much money you’re actually making
- your health and your mental health
- your relationships at work (and even at home)
- how well you trust your own fresh new ideas, and trust that you can articulate them
- how powerful you feel or are
- the world you want to build
If you’re feeling this, you are not alone. So many magnificent humans waste so much time second-guessing their ability to open their mouth and express their heart. It’s not their fault.
IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT.
The panic and dread and forgetting to breathe and self-sabotage are not your fault. SEE: oppressive systems and eons of crap messages about who deserves a public voice.
But what if you could change your relationship to your voice?
WHAT IF YOU COULD CLAIM ITS POWER—YOUR POWER—AND MAKE PUBLIC SPEAKING WORK FOR YOU?
So that whenever you pitch, present, or promote, it’s a chance to find true connection. So you absolutely radiate. So you trust you can use your voice to get what you want.
And what if you could do so in a relatively short amount of time and with great joy?
‘Cuz honestly, I’m pragmatic as hell, and I want you showing up with your glow on sooner rather than later.WAYS TO WORK WITH ME
COACHING THE NEW SOUND OF POWER
Hi, I’m Samara.
I’m a speech coach who’s helped CEO’s and entrepreneurs, candidates for US Congress, celebrities presenting at award shows or at the UN, moms returning to work, and high school girls who want to make a difference. I coach rising leaders on the cusp of something big—who need to speak with confidence and joy in a voice they recognize as their own to truly make sh*t happen.
I’m all about the new sound of power—because what power has traditionally sounded like isn’t working for us and fortunately, it doesn’t have to. I’ve been featured on CBS, ABC, The New York Times, Slate, Create & Cultivate, and I have a book called Permission to Speak coming out next year with Crown Publishing, a division of Penguin Random House. (SO EXCITED to finally share it!)
For over a decade I’ve coached magnificent humans for the moments that matter.
What they all have in common? An out-of-sync feeling with their voice and some untapped fury there. Some WTF. Some it’s time.
Maybe you feel it too.
The digital course.
In this brand new online program, I share my revolutionary approach to public speaking, so you know what to do from the moment of opportunity to the moment you open your mouth to share your fresh new idea, your pitch, your presentation, your plan.
The world needs you to show up and rise up, and here’s where you finally MAKE SURE you clear out the mindgunk and prep right so you bring your best self in, use your voice to get what you want, and have a f*ing fantastic time doing it.
Three modules, three lessons each. Guided by me but entirely self-paced for you. Short and sweet and totally unexpected. The shake-up you need.
Join me and get real and practical tools, virtual but extremely juicy hugs, a little pants-kicking, and a fierce and fun community that wants you to win.
Plus monthly Q&A's with me live!JOIN THE WAITLIST

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...
Spade Robinson, Hollywood writer
“Samara’s workshop was like going to public speaking church!”
Chris Bubser, candidate for United States Congress
“Over the course of a single VIP day, Samara taught me how to use my voice–how to use my own voice that I’ve been unable to access on command for my entire life.
And I also left with a warm up I entirely trusted to get me there over and over again, and a stump speech that I was so ready to deliver and have fun with. Samara blew my mind, and the best part, honestly, is that it worked.”
Hannah Diop, Founder and CEO, Sienna Naturals
“Working with Samara was a game changer and helped me tap into the personal narrative intrinsic to my story as a business founder.
It was always there, but wasn't getting the shine it deserved. She helped me unlock the power of my story and connect it to the research and products which gave my pitch the x-factor it needed to be successful."
