Calling all counselors, coaches, and authors!
It’s time to get off the couch and onto the stage.

Learn how to exponentially increase your income by becoming
a paid speaker. Attend the Couch 2 Podium Conference.

Pricing goes up soon!










Start or (amplify) your speaking career in two short days.

I know what it’s like to have all of the credentials and experience but not the income to show for it. You’ve done all of the “right” things and yet your funds aren’t reflecting all of the hard work and time you’ve put into your career.

I used to wonder if I was doing something wrong. Then I discovered the speaking circuit and my life changed drastically. Of course, I fumbled and made mistakes in the beginning because I had to figure things out on my own, but through a ton of trial and error, I began to pull in major numbers that changed me and my family’s life.

So, I’m opening my vault to you.

I’m sharing

You don’t have to fumble and make money-costing errors in your process. You’re going to learn how to seal the deals for maximum impact and income every time.

“If you have not attended her course then you need to get in here…she will show you how to get to get money.”

You don’t have a plan…

I became a telemarketer when I was 17. I wanted to buy all the clothes and shoes and thought, “how hard can it be?” If you’re reading this you’re probably laughing because we all know that being a telemarketer is no walk in the park.

I got my feelings hurt on the daily by people who cursed me out and told me not to call them anymore. Before I could let people off the phone, I would have to go through a series of rubbuttals, I hated it.

After two years of working as a telemarketer I learned something invaluable. I learned that it’s a numbers game. I only had to make a certain amount of calls to hit my quota and that changed the game for me. If I called enough people, eventually someone would say yes. Over time, I became a master pitcher. There’s nothing special Read More..

Your financial freedom is in your content.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the best writer, thank goodness for my team, but my books pull in numbers!

I don’t care if you’re not a writer (like me) a book can change not just your life but the lives of people who read it.

I remember when my father suggested that I write a book, I scoffed because I’m the person who almost lost an internship because my report writing was so terrible. One day, I decided to go ahead and write my book (after a lot of pushing from my father). Writing the book was a huge labor of love but it was worth it!

One day a woman emailed me wanted to buy a bulk order of my book for her therapy practice. I was FLOORED! Apparently she’d purchased my book after one of my conferences and it gave her renewed hope for her own marriage and she wanted to share it with her clients. Read More..

The truth is that you’re burned out

The pandemic has tired our service professionals out. Counselors, coaches, and healers have been booked solid with clients because the world needs us. While it’s great to be able to service the world, who is giving back to you?

The Couch 2 Podium Conference is here to support you in creating a sustainable income. You’re going to be shown how to package your expertise in a way that doesn’t wreak havoc on your nervous system and allows you to get some much-needed rest.

You don’t have to work harder, but you do have to work more methodically. You’re going to get the structure you need in order to bring ease and flow into your life.

You need a community

Trying to take this journey on your own can be incredibly lonely and I’ve found that it’s a lot easier to give up on your dreams when you aren’t surrounded by a supportive community. My time in Howard University’s Ph.D. program taught me that I’m only as strong as my circle. There were times where I was frustrated and wanted ot give up, but they didn’t let me. There were times where I didn’t allow them to give up.

I’ve carried this with me throughout my journey and I know it’s imperative that I have a strong circle of people around me at all times. This is what the Couch to Podium Conference is all about. Read More..

You can choose to navigate this alone or get the help and community you need to have a wildly successful speaking career.
