081: Charisma on Camera with Sandra Dee Robinson

Charisma on Camera

Sandra Dee Robinson

Charisma on Camera may come naturally to some. For those of you who are more like a deer in the headlights, guest Sandra Dee Robinson can make you ready for your close up.

Sandra Dee Robinson has spent nearly all of her life in front of a camera: as an actor (including Another World, Sunset Beach, Bold and the Beautiful, General Hospital, Days of Our Lives, Two and a Half Men, Criminal Minds, Secret Life of an American Teenager and TV movies) and as a TV host and product spokesperson.

You might think then, talking directly into camera or speaking on a stage would seem like a natural thing for her to do. Far from it! “I was extremely shy but comfortable behind a character (acting). When people began to ask me to support a charity on stage, or sell a product, even be interviewed and they said, ‘Just be yourself!’ I was so lost.”

As it usually happens with persistence, there came a day of a breakthrough; exhaustion and a funny circumstance onstage of an infomercial shoot had Sandra unexpectedly enjoying being “herself” on a stage. She was relaxed, having fun, and getting her message across in her own unique way. Suddenly, moments of her training experiences came back to her and it all finally started to make sense!

What Sandra teaches at Charisma on Camera is a super-condensed and individualized combination of her training and experience that can help anyone feel better, look better and perform better without all of the years of frustration and pain, and outrageous spending that she did!

Sandra has been coaching entertainment reporters and television hosts, and she founded Charisma on Camera to expand her clientele to professionals in any field. Her current clients include authors, life coaches, experts in their fields that want to find their star qualities, confidence, and comfort level to establish themselves as an expert guest, successful speaker or host their own show. – See more at:charismaoncamera.com

Social Media Secret Sauce

Cindy Morrison

There is a secret sauce to social media that any savvy business owner can develop and guest Cindy Morrison has the recipe!

Emmy-winning journalist Cindy Morrison teaches everyone from network TV journalists to corporate CEOs how to strategically use social media to build brand loyalty, raving fans and their bottom line. Her social media savvy has been highlighted on national TV shows like FOX News, CBS’s “The Talk”, The Washington Post, The New York Post & The Huffington Post. Good Morning America’s Tory Johnson calls Cindy her favorite Social Media Strategist and they’ve spent two years together on the 2011 and 2012 National Spark and Hustle Tour to help women entrepreneurs across the country make more money. Cindy has helped create social media buzz at events from star-studded Hollywood fundraisers & red carpet events to national conferences.

The 20 year TV news anchor and investigative reporter discovered the power of this media to connect with viewers and get exclusives. After corporate downsizing, Cindy reinvented herself as a nationally sought speaker and used the platform to promote her self-published book. Her social media marketing strategy sold more copies of “Girlfriends 2.0″ in the first month alone than the vast majority of first time authors ever sell! That’s when Cindy developed her SOCIALVENTION programs and coaching to show entrepreneurs as well as big corporations & franchises how to utilize social media engagement, video and branding to rise above the competition and not only survive but thrive our changing world.
