I’m glad you’re here. Because video is unavoidable.
And the need to be at your best has never been more crucial.
An Entrepreneur or Business Professional.
An Expert or Thought Leader.
Whether you use video for promotion, marketing, training
or an interview at a summit…
If your performance falls short or your message fails to connect…
You damage your brand, your credibility and your bottom line.
It’s not uncommon to be camera-shy.
To lack confidence.
To feel uncomfortable or self-conscious in front of the camera.
Or simply lack the tools you need to make video work for you.
And while you can get past these obstacles.
It’s nearly impossible getting past them on your own.
It takes an outside trained and discerning eye.
Someone to help you see yourself so you can be yourself in video.
To help you find confidence and credibility on camera.
To insure every aspect captures who you are and what you do.
Someone with the tools to help you connect with your audience and develop a relationship.
Because in every video something stops you from making your best impression or keeps your message from landing…
You undermine your brand and damage your bottom line.
And that is a loss none of us can afford.
If you are ready to raise the level of your video to meet your expertise.
Reach out. Let’s have a conversation.
See if we’re a fit. And if we are.
Virtual or In Person. Global or Local.
Our work is individualized. There is no one-size-fits-all.

Together we’ll reach your personal best. Not someone else’s best. But your own unique best.
And if you’re so new to video you don’t even know where to begin…we’ll do that too!
“When you come to video prepare to be imperfect.
Because that is where we find you.”

Elaine inspires and educates her audience on the topics of…
- How to connect with your audience in video. When it happens. What it feels like and where it can take you in your business.
- How to ‘find yourself’ in front of the camera and discover the freedom that will improve every aspect of your business and life.
- How becoming good at video will make you a stronger speaker and communicator on a stage or in a boardroom.
- How to become direct and present in your performance so that your message doesn’t just land…but sticks and is remembered.

I spent 18 years as a Juilliard-trained professional actor working with some of the finest award-winning directors and designers in the American Theatre.
I learned more than acting at Juilliard.
I learned what it meant to be credible and watchable.
And through it all I gained an appreciation and understanding of visual composition which lead me to see things from a creative point of view with a real eye for detail ever since.

Running with Scissors
(Although the part written
for me by Ryan Murphy
was cut in the final edit!)
From acting I unexpectedly went into Marketing and Sales. I spent 22 years as a consultant behind company brands as a spokesperson, brand ambassador and educator in such diverse fields as home fragrance and concierge medicine.
I set overall company brand and marketing strategies, directed PR firms and graphic designers, edited company educational videos and drove website design in addition to writing content.
Whether selling products for the American leader in home fragrance or high-end concierge medical programs, I found an unanticipated love and ease in sales.
I first met Elaine Hausman at The Juilliard School. She was widely acknowledged as an extraordinary actress and her subsequent career on Broadway and Off provided her with an array of dazzling roles, both comedic and dramatic. I had the great privilege of working with Elaine on the Golden Globe-winning TV series “Nip/Tuck,” where I was a writer and Executive Producer. Elaine played a woman who accidentally lit her face on fire. Her performance was so rich and poignant that the entire writing staff demanded the character return and she soon after became a recurring role.
Elaine’s later transition into the world of business was a loss for the performing arts, but one that makes perfect sense. It allowed her to expand the unique and creative approach that served her as an actress so successfully; her keen eye for detail, her meticulous professionalism, her masterful ability to present herself with poise and dynamism easily translated into the fields of marketing and sales to great effect.
I’ve watched Elaine derive enormous pleasure and satisfaction establishing personal relationships in her business endeavors while helping to solve problems with the same passion, commitment and thoughtfulness she employed as an actress. There’s no one I would trust more to maximize my on-screen presence and help me represent my business to its full potential.
Richard Levine – Writer, Director, Producer: Nip/Tuck, Boss, Masters of Sex
Elaine is my video performance coach on the wonderful mission to help me become more ‘credible & watchable’ during my online courses and trainings. Her guidance and methods are simply priceless. I went from being nervous to being confident, from being ashamed about my flaws (English is my second language) to being relaxed (even proud) about them and from being camera shy to being camera confident. Working with Elaine would be a total game changer for anyone who wants to perform at their best.
Larisa Petrini – Health & Age Reversal Expert: Keep GLOWING
I got the Hillary Clinton part that I auditioned for! Wow! I can’t believe that I’ll be making my stage acting debut, and at the legendary Second City in Chicago, of all places. Thank you so much, Elaine, for giving me some wonderful acting tips that were super helpful to me and helped me nail my audition and get the part. Elaine also has a great YouTube channel that gives amazing tips for those looking to be more comfortable being on video. I highly recommend that you work with Elaine. Whether you need acting or tips or whether you’re looking to greatly increase your comfort level on camera, Elaine has the skills, expertise, and know how to take you to the next level. Thank you, Elaine!

Petronille Paulin– Mazy Digital
As we pivoted our brick and mortar healing arts studios and offerings into the virtual world, video has become all-important. We needed to master the technical aspects of digital, but also wanted to learn how we could convey the nature and purpose of our business – caring, empathy, personal connection – onto the screen. Elaine’s advice was invaluable in helping me learn subtle-yet-powerful ways to connect with our audience… from body language, placement and posture, lighting and timing to understanding the differing ways people receive digital information. She brings technical expertise and direction, a broad range of impactful advice, and true joy and enthusiasm to her craft. I’d highly recommend Elaine’s workshops and guidance to anyone looking to bring their business to life on-screen with vibrant authenticity.
Kayse Gehret – Founder, Soulstice Mind + Body Spa: Massage Therapy, Meditation + Yoga
My fear of video was off the charts, but I knew I had to get with the program and start including it in my marketing plan. Elaine has a gentle and understanding approach which put me at ease right away. She blends practical tools and fresh ideas together that were geared towards my business. Elaine is a natural teacher and adapted to my style and helped me to express my personality and business objectives on video. Zoom calls with Elaine were fun and with each session I felt more and more comfortable with video.

I highly recommend working with Elaine. She has so much knowledge, and is kind and so encouraging in her teaching style! I’ve benefitted so much and now feel so much more confident in using video technology for my business!

You taught me to get out of my own way so that I can give the value that others are looking to me for. Thank you Elaine
J. Peter White – The Wealthy Consultant
You are such a calm speaker filled with confidence. Your tips from your workshop were very helpful in giving me courage to start doing videos, then Live videos. Today I took it one step further – I did a Facebook Live video via Zoom! I’ve already have 2 engagements! Again, you gave me the confidence to start this process. I’m forever grateful.
Linda Lenore – Fung Shui Master, Interior and Lifestyle Designer
I think of you often when I’m doing videos or speaking gigs. You upleveled my confidence and I am so grateful for that.

I really enjoyed your videos. I really appreciate your content and even keel delivery. It’s inspiring to see you highlighting your gifting/sharing lessons learned/taught while using your visibility to demonstrate compassion for those who need it most.
Vickie McCune, MBA, LSSGB – Vickie McCune Realty
Elaine, You have a magic way of simplifying the most complex of subjects and bringing it down to it’s bare essence. And in doing so, making it completely easy to understand. If only more teachers and people in general, followed your concept of speaking to be understood. It would make communication between people so much easier. Brilliant analysis! 🙂
Arlene Robbins, Executive Assistant | Office Manager – Yeshiva University Investment Office
I worked side-by-side with Elaine in a senior living environment for over 3 years. She has a gift for developing trust-based relationships. More than that, her personal standards of excellence and impeccability cannot be matched. Her strong skills reflect her high standards.
Millie Anderson – Senior Placement Specialist with ‘Mom’s New Pad’
I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Elaine Hausman in two different settings. I found her to be exceptionally personable and professional. She is warm, friendly, articulate and compassionate. She engages her audience with sincerity. Elaine was a true pleasure to work with. As my career has developed since working with her I have not yet met another person like Elaine.
