  • Most Promising Social Entrepreneur Award of 2010.
  • Helped a client position/strategize her TEDx talk, develop relevant content and fine-tune her delivery so it’s received more than 65,000 views in three months.
  • Helped the former Creative Director for MGM Studios prepare for an L.A. Times interview that successfully launched her career as a full-time script consultant.
  • Helped the owner of a “corporate narrative” business create a NEW title/brand name, craft a 4-page book proposal and land a book deal with a NY publisher in 2 days.
  • Helped a client develop a successful investor pitch. He stood up in an EO meeting and said, “Sam helped me get $10 million in one month from a half-day consult.”
  • Helped the 3-time winner of America’s “Best Small Business to Work For” fine-tune their positioning, messaging and website copy to accurately reflect their brand promise.
  • Helped a non-profit executive conceptualize and write a book about his organization that premiered at Chicago’s Soldier Field to an audience of 1,000 people.
  • Helped a former Disney Institute executive and Inc. 500/5000 winner re-brand his business with a one-of-a-kind name that has dramatically increased visibility and clients.
  • Worked with the busy founder of Travelocity and chair of Kayak to “talk out” his book so he could get his expertise out of his head and onto the page. She then edited his manuscript/self-publishe book which he now customizes for each speaking client.
  • Helped a client prepare for her TED-MED panel. Even though she spoke for less than 5 minutes, SHE was the one sought out by the press and attendees afterwards.

Please note:

To put Sam’s fees in perspective, please focus on the RESULTS you receive in your time with Sam. She often comes up with a strategic positioning, title and approach that makes your business, brand, book or presentation UNIQUE so it succeeds beyond your expectations.

Many clients tell us they wish they had worked with Sam SOONER. They spent 5-10 times her fee on websites that didn’t work, social media/marketing/PR campaigns that didn’t yield any results, “branding” experts that came up with something generic, or media/presentation coaches that made suggestions that weren’t congruent with their voice or vision.

Many clients have told us working with Sam is the best investment they’ve ever made in their career because she doesn’t “silo” your work. Everything she suggests can be used in all aspects of your business and is based on her 30+ years of experience as a highly-successful global speaker, published author, media resource, event planner and in-demand consultant.

In fact, many clients tell us Sam saves them time and money because she does the work of several “vendors.” She connects dots no one else sees and generates “break out” language that helps market your project, land funding, a book deal or high-profile speaking engagements, and get a yes from their decision-makers and ideal clients.

She helped one client create a funding pitch that landed a $250 million deal with Carlos Slim, the richest man in the world. She has helped people develop quality books that are “evergreens” that are still selling globally. She has helped people get selected for a TEDx talk that positioned them as a thought leader and took their career to a whole new level.

Sam’s work has been featured in Fast Company, NY Times, Investors Business Daily, INC, Forbes and on NPR, and endorsed by such business thought leaders as Dan Pink, Nell Merlino (Take Your Daughter to Work Day) Seth Godin, Keith Ferrazzi, Gail Sheehy (author of Passages) Ken Blanchard, Amy Wilkinson (White House Fellow) and Stephen R. Covey.

You are welcome and encouraged to record your sessions. The messaging you and Sam develop together is often “perfect” and can go right into your website, proposal, deck, marketing campaign, media interviews, book and presentations. Our clients tell us they listen to their recordings again and again and catch new nuggets each time. They often share the recordings with team members so they operationalize what has been developed. Sam’s encouragement inspires you to make tangible progress towards your goals so you complete your projects and get them out in the world where they can make a positive difference for others and a prosperous living for you.

What Do Our Clients Say?

“Working with Sam is the biggest gift I could ever have given myself. She has this unique ability to truly hear what you’re saying – both evident and not – and frame it back to you in such a way that you DO something with it. I can try to explain it until the cows come home but instead, work with her to see what unfolds. She is 100% present, one in a million. I am blessed to work with her, learn from her, evolve because of her.” = Donna Karlin, founder of No Ceiling, Just Sky Institute and coach for TED Fellows

“Sam has helped me with a range of projects. If she takes you on as a client, she does her research, thinks carefully about your project and really helps you harness and focus your creative energy (or find it, if it’s gone missing).
