Her tools WORK. It's like she has a secret formula for creating reels, telling stories, and getting that top ten market feel.

— Sarah Robinson

I was a high school dropout, with no connections in TV news.  

Through hustle, positivity and persistence, I put myself through college and worked my way up to be a reporter in a top 30 market.  

But...I had always wanted to work in NYC. It took an “aha moment” for me to realize the only thing holding me back was ME. In short, I got out of my own way and into my dream job.  

From there, I anchored and reported in Washington, D.C., then became a correspondent at a network, met my husband and rescued the sweetest dogs ever.  

Once I realized my dream life, I wanted to help others to get what they want in life.

Here’s the thing: I know I could have made it to my dream markets quicker - years quicker - if I only had a “me” to guide me.  

That’s why I’m here to show YOU how.

I promise you living your dream life IS achievable. If you’ve been looking for that 'fairy-godmother-in-news’ to show you the way,

HOW CAN DEBRA HELP ME?

I'm so glad you asked!

Feedback

News is a demanding business, with no instruction manual. News Directors don’t always have time to give feedback, and mentors will give you their time when they have some. Plus, they’re not paid to tell you the tough stuff, so 9.9 times out of 10, they’ll leave that out.  

Accountability

I will help keep you accountable for your growth through assignments and deadlines - that’s your personal roadmap!

Mindset

Do you feel you're ENOUGH? The most important lesson I've learned is that you can't win in the world, if you're not winning in your mind. I'll give you the tools you can use over and over again to shift your mindset. And I'll be your biggest cheerleader.

  • Can Debra guarantee I'll get a job?
  • No. Debra is not an agent. And she's not a headhunter. But, she knows the secret sauce to making a great reel that gets News Directors' attention. She also has lots of contacts in the industry, and can usually locate an inside source at a station you want to work at.

    Lastly, she can teach you the best and most effective way to make contact with decision-makers. Many clients in top markets credit Debra with helping them get to their dream market.

  • How long will it take me to complete the Digital Course, "Two Weeks to Top Ten TV Market Confidence"?
  • The course title says "Two Weeks" but you could finish it before that if your schedule allows. Each section is bite-size and comes with worksheets and checklists. It's designed to take into account that you are a working journalist and have a busy life!
  • If I buy the Digital Course, how long do I have access to it?
  • You have lifetime access to it. It never goes away!

Aren't you worth the investment of $29?
