Finally a doable + deep approach to pitching 🎉

Note: this is to pitch ANYTHING. Book, pod, idea, self, a run for office, to get investors. The foundation is ALL THE SAME.

👉🏼 I got asked for this workshop so often I finally made it! 90 juicy minutes!

🔥 Background is I pitched and sold a podcast to iHeartRadio with no following, then a book to Penguin Random House in a 13-way bidding war -- and along the way coached founders on their pitches, politicians, entrepreneurs, scientists, activists, and artists.

🎉 Now I've turned my approach into this workshop. It's PERMISSION TO SPEAK in action. It was recorded live and was SO well received, I'm offering the recording!

Inside you'll find:

  • The original written one-sheet pitch I submitted to iHeartRadio, so you've got a sample.
  • Access to me monthly for drop-in office hours!

Pitching gets you yeses. Pitching is justice work. Pitching makes us all more human.

Here's how 👉🏼

What People Are Saying:

That was one of the most insightful webinars I've attended in a long time!! Not only did you make it relatable, but it was also a topic that I've never heard anyone talk about. I held tears back because you hit the bullseye for me. I didn't know how to articulate what I felt all these years, and kept saying this is just who I have to be to survive and be taken seriously. Biggest takeaway is that you ignited hope that I can work on finally being free wholeheartedly.

This session was INCREDIBLE. It felt like a warm hug. I laughed, I cried. And the very next morning...I had the start to an outline for an idea I've had for YEARS.

I loved this workshop! I felt so energized during and after, and I walked away feeling both in my body and confident about sharing more of myself. The invitation to spread care resonated, and it was the exact message I needed to hear as I promote my debut book. THANK YOU for what you are putting into the world, Samara.
