Do you have a secret desire to become a speaker who can captivate an audience on any platform -- even Facebook Lives?
Do you feel you have something "in you" that you want to get out?
Do you want to be a coach AND speaker who knows how to combine their knowledge and expertise to make an impact with the masses?
Listen, I know how you feel. A lot of my clients tell me about the angst they feel knowing they want to share their message with more people… but not sure about HOW.
TO A HOST OF NEW EXPERT TRAININGS, INCLUDING:
I've been fortunate and honored to tell stories for a living, as part of an Emmy & Murrow award-winning TV career. Most recently, I covered the impeachment inquiry from the White House and Capitol Hill. For most of my career, I worked for TV affiliates (CBS, ABC) around the country... 10+ years (interviewing thousands, writing stories for LIVE TV, producing documentaries, delivering stories on-air and speaking on stages).
Still, there was a part of me that wanted to tap into my entrepreneurial spirit: serve more, impact more and speak more... around the world on my own time!
But enough about me -- what's this have to do with you?
Now, I'm on a mission to help you soar.
Rather than reporting a single story each day on TV... I'm now helping change agents, authors and entrepreneurs develop their speaker brand, craft their story and get booked on stages so they can reach the masses with their message and transform lives
I want to help you dive into the world of speaking and storytelling with confidence... and show you all of the secret tools to deliver your compelling signature story with POWER on stages around the world
To work 1:1 with me is a premium price and I love working privately with clients... but I've always wanted to do something for people who are in-between.. those who have a deep desire inside of them to inspire others through their story
Is that you?
Allow me to show you the way.
"I was hoping and praying that somebody would one day let me talk in front of their group and by the end of our 8 weeks, I was booked for TWO stages and those helped me get booked for a third stage coming up next month. I learned to keep it succinct and not get up there and ramble and lost in what I was supposed to say ... actually knowing what comes next and being in that signature talk and practicing it. Just been amazing to know that I've got it and can use it in different ways. "
"Even though I had been in sales and done a ton of sales presentations I really have never felt that comfortable in being able to succinctly tell my story, to really figure out how to make an impact... sometimes it gets murky as to how do I condense all of my experiences so that I can actually say something that makes sense! Working with Bofta, the validation that even things that I didn't think were important ARE important to my story, so that was really helpful for me. And then to find that golden thread and that recurring theme, that would help me put my message together... super helpful for me."
"Is this real?"
IMAGINE speaking to hundreds of people about your story... your journey... your powerful experiences... your message...
What would that feel like?
What if you could rock a stage with confidence, deeply connect with your audience and share your compelling story?
How would that fulfill you?
You don't have to wonder, wish, or dream anymore.
If you're watching others with a bit of envy as they rock a stage, I'm here to tell you it doesn't have to be that way.
The art of powerful speaking and storytelling is a skill that can greatly impact your life and the life of others....
And the good news?
It's a craft ... so anyone can learn it.
And after years of working on that craft, I know what it takes to write and craft a compelling story for the stage and on camera.
I would dabble, spoke at retreats, workshops... but never really had a story crafted. When we connected, I was at ground zero. You helped me first work on me so I could clearly identify what were the messages, the main points... so you really gave me opportunities to dive deeper than I had been... you helped me dig up and show some jewels that I didn't even realize the connection.
You helped me find the connection in my story.
She has helped me obtain these small little tweaks in public speaking that I was unable to see or even comprehend... and it has made a huge impact in my business and personal life as well. Going forward, I just have a huge amount of tools in everything that I do... she has a distinct ability to hear what you're saying but also hear what you mean to say... I'm a huge fan of Bofta and the work she's done... been life-changing for me. If you're thinking of signing up for this class, don't think anymore, do it. It will literally change your life.

"Bofta has been instrumental in helping me get my motivational speaking business off the ground. She has helped me with developing my marketing such as my book, and helping me develop my speeches... Her group calls to help me get unstuck and push forward to success was truly an inspiration and motivated me to attack my contact list... I have received several speaking engagements with Bofta's help; without her program and help I would have not been able to do what I love and that is speaking. Bofta is easy to work with and very knowledgeable in helping you get unstuck. I highly recommend you try her program. You will not regret it. "
I needed to gain skills on how to tell my story, help with my confidence... public speaking was nerve-wracking. I was a nervous wreck anytime I had to speak in front of an audience. I wouldn't effectively communicate my story, people wouldn't understand what I was trying to convey. But now, you have given me tools that will last a lifetime. I understand what to do to turn my nervousness into a good energy source so I can be effective in my communication. Now, I am prepared when I'm asked to tell my story... they can understand my mission, what I'm about.
I feel like I've transformed.
Even though I had been in sales and done a ton of sales presentations I really have never felt that comfortable in being able to succinctly tell my story, to really figure out how to make an impact... sometimes it gets like murky as to how do I kind of condense all of my experiences so that I can actually say something that makes sense. Working with Bofta, the validation that even things that I didn't think were important are important to my story so that was really helpful for me, and then to find that golden thread and that recurring theme, that would help me put my message together... super helpful for me
You helped me dig more into my story. I really never talked about my story in depth... but with coaching it helped me realize that I can go more in depth to help other people that may have been through the same or similar situation... Speaking more and being comfortable with speaking my story I feel very confident because I have more tools to just continue to practice and work on. No matter where I'm speaking or who I'm speaking to I can always speak a part of my story. If I was stuck on a lot of things you would walk me through it and teach me.
It really has been a blessing for me.
"I was initially stuck with belief in myself. Bofta helped to uncover my blocks and my self limiting beliefs. I’m now more confident and ready to move forward with clarity. In the past few months working with Bofta, I’ve had an increase in visibility and more requests for interviews and an increase in speaking engagement requests. If you were hesitant about jumping into the program, I encourage you not to be. I’m a living testimony that Bofta’s course is exactly what you need to take you to your next destination."
