You got this, Sales School alumni.
(And I’m here to hold your hand.)
Does this broken record sound familiar:
You have to do a video and your Heart Starts Racing.
And in your mind you’re saying: “I will definitely do it later today, OR when I’m over my cold, OR when I’ve finished ALL my other projects”.
Then you forget about it for another day.
And then suddenly you remember that you have to do a video. Eek!!!
And it’s the same ol’ conversation in your head: “Yep I will definitely do it later today!…”
I totally get it.
When you FIRST START MAKING videos you probably feel…
that they’ll see how IMPERFECT you are! You don’t even want to face your camera. AHHHH!!!
Sounds intimidating, right?
I mean, all that research, the trial and error, piecing together bits of info from different sources. Yuck!
It feels like a lot to absorb all at once.
(And it is when done this way)
Oh and then there’s the times when you finally work up the nerve to press the record button…
… only to see you hopes dashed away by your fear, bad sound or by wonky lighting.
– Yeah. That seriously sucks. Totally agree. –
But here’s the thing:
Video is actually a superpower that YOU CAN LEARN!
It’s a skill like any other.
And when you learn how to do it the right way, video:
Builds your profile and RECOGNITION
Tells your STORY and your dream clients’ stories
So how do you develop this superpower?
Well, your first step is: Move past the fear of making videos.
When your fear takes control of your videos, then your audience doubts your actual abilities.
(And we both know that you’re great at what you do.)
But you don’t want them to get the wrong impression of your professionalism, experience and skills, right?
Try this on for size:
If you embrace being seen + heard, your audience will enjoy watching you!
Once you move past your fear, you can start to do the other keys to making great videos, such as:
- CONFIDENTLY putting yourself out there on-camera.
- Talking in a way that MAKES SENSE and isn’t too wordy (or too drawn out) for video.
- UNLEASHING the best parts of your personality on-camera.
- Being more TIME-EFFICIENT when making videos.
- Making videos that LOOK GOOD.
Sound like stuff you’d like to learn? Cool!
Then I’ve got just the thing for you.
Say hello to the On-Camera Bootcamp!
LET’S TAKE A LOOK INSIDE…
What to expect in the On-Camera Bootcamp:
First up, you should know that the On-Camera Bootcamp is for passionate entrepreneurs who are suuuper scared of their video camera but are seriously ready to play it bigger in their biz.
It’s perfect for the ‘preneur who wants to bust through their fears and create a video-splash in their industry.
The On-Camera Bootcamp is an 8-week adventure that takes you through the video-making process step-by-step.
CLASS STARTS MONDAY APRIL 15!
If you need to Go At Your Own Pace… You can do that too!
What does the overall journey look like?
IN A (VIDEO) NUTSHELL:
In this program, you learn about technology + gear AFTER we’ve busted through your FEARS of being on camera, not BEFORE.
This way you’re feeling CONFIDENT, READY + EXCITED to learn the tech stuff that feels too intimidating right now.
That’s the BEST way for you to learn how to make AMAZING videos while AVOIDING VIDEO OVERWHELM.
The On-Camera Bootcamp requires your utmost commitment to the work.
I ask some tough questions, and you take some challenging actions, but as a result you get lasting, transformative results.
You can expect to invest several roll-up-your-sleeves hours of work to do each week.
(Fear not. If you fall behind there’s one additional week for implementation).
But you need to truly show up and take risks.
THE LAST THING YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED TO KNOW:
I take great pride in the awesomeness of my students.
Even though they’re scared of video at the beginning of the program, they’re also ready to make a difference in the world, AND they won’t let fear stop them.
Learn from a filmmaker on a mission
The On-Camera Bootcamp is like no other video training system because it’s actually a FUN, ACHIEVABLE + EMPOWERING experience.
After nearly two decades in the film + theatre industries as a writer, director + actor, I’ve spent countless hours IN FRONT OF + BEHIND the camera.
What I know for sure, is that the majority of entrepreneurs are making videos the WRONG WAY.
Teaching you how to approach video from a playful + heartfelt perspective – instead of a dreaded, heart-pounding one – literally became my biz mission.
An in the On-Camera Bootcamp, in just 7 short weeks, you’ll transform from scared to SHINING; from eek to EXCITED; from playing small to playing BIG in your videos.
Even if this is your first foray into video for your biz, I got you!

And you don’t have to be terrified of your camera and quit before you even truly start.

Don’t go at this alone and criticize your efforts into submission, when you can have a community of cheerleaders (myself included), to encourage ALL your (video) baby steps.
Frequently asked questions
How much equipment do I need to do this program?
All you need to get started is either your smartphone or your webcam, so that you can make really simple video recordings. All other tech is optional, and stuff you can build upon through the bonus section.
What results can I expect from the Bootcamp?
Your full participation in the Bootcamp gets you comfy and confident on-camera confidence! You learn how to make your video LOOK and FEEL professional. Make simple videos that you can post on your website and blog. You get a full library of tips and tricks in your arsenal that you can use for years to come. So whatever you’re not ready for now, it’s there for you, when you want to dive into that particular step.
How much time do I need to invest?
Like most things in life, you get out of the On-Camera Bootcamp what you put into it. I highly recommend that you do the course as I’ve laid it out. One module per week (module three is spread out over two weeks).
It depends on how deeply you dive into the written part of the course (there is LOTS of GOLD in the Sweet Sheets) and how many attempts you need to create your Video Missions.
How much time you invest into the program each week is, of course, up to YOU. But a studious student can expect to set aside at least a few hours each week to roll up her sleeves and do the work.
Another course? Can I really DO this?
I know it’s natural to have concerns. I’ve invested a lot of time and money into online courses myself. Plus I’ve been working SUPER hard to create a course that would deliver RESULTS.
Here’s a GOLDEN part of the On-Camera Bootcamp: While it is designed as a 7-week program, you can go at your own pace. And I stand by the power of this program.
Money back guarantee
I stand by the power of the On-Camera Bootcamp. But because I know it can be scary to sign up for a new program, I’ve included a 30-day, 100% money-back GUARANTEE.
HERE’S THE SCOOP: Because I genuinely want you to make amazing videos and spread your message to the world, I ask that you first watch all the training videos from the FIRST 4 WEEKS, and complete + send me the assignments up to that point.
If we don’t see a transformation in your videos at that point, I’ll give you a full refund. I believe in the course that strongly.
It will TRANSFORM your videos. 🙂
“Soooo beyond what I expected from a video training course! When I mustered up the courage to join, I did so with a fair amount of kicking and screaming. I knew that I needed to up my professional game for my online audience. Trouble was, I’ve never enjoyed putting myself in the spotlight. Ever.
Thankfully, Sarah creates a safe place for even the most resistant of wallflowers like me. She knows how to tease out all of the awkward bits, knows when to encourage, and how to gently push when we need it most (but don’t actually know it yet).
Of course you’ll also learn how to improve video production quality using all of the tips and tricks that only Sarah can teach. If you’re on the fence about signing up right now, stop hesitating. Just say yes!”
