Success Stories


"Working with Mikaela changed the entire way I approach making videos. I used to be self-critical about all of my videos and hated watching myself on the screen. Now I embrace all of my strengths and flaws on camera because Mikaela taught me that what I have to say is important to my audience and needs to be heard. Thus, I have to practice to get better, so I have also embraced watching myself on camera without being overly critical. Thank you Mikaela for raising my self-confidence on video from a ‘4’ to a ‘7,’ providing the tools to ensure the best setting for shooting a video and the best content for the types of video I want to get out there. Finally, thank you for your positive energy and encouragement throughout the program!"

"I decided to start working with Mikaela because I saw her videos on Instagram and I loved them. I loved how confident she was. I loved how she looked very professional even though you could tell it wasn't a professional camera crew doing it. Before I started working with her, I was so self-conscious about being on video. I hardly ever did videos. If I did, I wouldn't show my face or speak in them because I was so self-conscious. I didn't like the way my face looked, how I sounded. But now, after working with Mikaela, I'm much more comfortable doing videos. I'm much more confident in actually posting those videos because I now realize that I just needed to get over myself and post it. I highly recommend working with Mikaela because she actually assigns work, assigns videos for you to do and then provides thoughtful critique. And through practice, it just really helped me and I just really loved working with Mikaela and highly recommend her."

"I worked with Mikaela and I thought it was a really good investment because she provided me with some great tools and some great tips on how to take all my ideas and build on online presence in regards to either being interviewed or creating videos. It was a lot of homework, but it was useful because I was able to see each week how I progressed. It was really great working with MIkaela."

"Mikaela Ian exudes the confidence and skill necessary to market yourself over video and leads by true example. My initial session with her she uncovered limitations in both mindset and in technical skills that were holding me back from being more efficient and successful marketing myself over video. She gave me tools to overcome those challenges and I walked away knowing the strategies necessary to effectively and efficiently create video content that converts. I would highly recommend working with Mikaela if you are working to grow your business or your confidence."

"Since I worked with Mikaela, I’ve gotten so much more confident being able to hop on video and share more about myself with my followers and potential clients that are out there. All the tips and tricks that she gave me, I’ve noticed have really been the thing that pushed those clients over to edge to want to book with me, to want to learn more about my services and to engage more in the videos that I’m sharing. Just following those tips and tricks, showing up with confidence and showing up consistently has been key."

“I’ve worked with Mikaela on a few occasions and each time I’ve received VALUE. When I first started working with Mikaela, I had no idea what I was doing with my potential brand. However, by working with Mikaela and being open to constructive criticism, I was able to gain confidence in myself and my brand. Although building my confidence is ongoing, I can work on it consistently as I show up for my community through video daily. If I could change anything, it would be to stop doubting myself and work with Mikaela earlier.”
