Insightful, entertaining and actionable

Val and her guests give listeners an an unfair advantage when it comes creating and engaging in world-class video content - spotlighting tried & true tactics and coming trends. :)

Highly recommend listening and subscribing to Camera Ready if you want the knowledge AND mindsets to effectively build your brand through video (and reach your overall goals as a result)!

Powerful advice!

Every leader/speaker, on camera and off, needs this podcast running in their earbuds. Val is an expert on being camera ready and no one is sharing the insight she has. Keep the episodes coming, Val! So good!!!

Great podcast for any entrepreneur

This podcast has fantastic information on how to improve your appearance on camera. The suggestions are easily applied and clearly stated. There are areas like jewelry and shine that I had not even considered. Val uses her objective vision and years of experience to define what will enhance or detract from your message on YouTube, Facebook or wherever you will be on video.
