  • “Finding your voice is not an easy thing. Self-promotion is even stickier. Put the two together and, if you’re like me, you’ve created the perfect storm of overwhelm. Emily has rock-solid understanding of all things self-promotion, as well as an uncanny ability to break down even the most intimidating hurdles into manageable action items.”

What's My Investment?

How much is the agony of your courage costing you? How many potential fans/customers can’t see or hear you in the sea of noise? How many of your events are half empty because people don’t know why they should come? How many people are passing up your offers? Can potential customers understand why they need your product or service? The bumps and bruises of your bravery may already be costing you a great deal.
