Whatever passion you have, that you want to spend the majority of your time with, it costs you money if you aren't a paid professional.
I chose that I wanted to dance on my own terms, I don't want to be dependent on getting picked at the next audition or moonlighting in jobs that don't interest me. You shouldn't have to do any of that either!
Whatever you choose to do to support your passion financially, being able to market yourself and your product/service and automating some or most of your sales is what will set you free! Both as an artist and as an entrepreneur.
I became an online marketer, specializing in video creation, to help others like you and I become online rock stars because you too deserve to create the life you imagined.
There are many ways to do this, it all comes down to creating a strategy that suits you (*hint: if the strategy doesn't suit you it's gonna be an uphill battle creating success with it)
Of course, if you ask me, I'd tell you that a video marketing strategy is the shizzle in 2020! Let me tell you all about it
Video appeals to the visual nature of humans. Did you know that 90% of all information transmitted to the brain is visual... (source: 3M Corporation). No wonder video is doing so well.
The only challenge is that now that video is doing so well, and since we're living in an AMAZING time where everyone and can start an online business if they wish to, the online space has become CROWDED and the competition is massive! (don't let that scare you though).
Another challenge that a lot of entrepreneurs are about to face, if they aren't already, is that the online world is changing vastly! Every platform out there has been making little subtle adjustments for this change all through 2019. Social media and search engines are no longer gonna be about how many times a day you post.
This change is GREAT for us solopreneurs though! Because now we will finally be rewarded for actually spending time with the content and making it highly relevant and valuable before sharing it with the world.
It's all about the quality of what you post now and how relevant it is to those who find it.
The days where you could base an online business on posting 10-15 motivational posts online are pretty much gone. You're no longer gaining anything from slamming out loads of posts everywhere (Thank goodness!! I never thought that was a great strategy anyway).
What this means is that even though video is FANTASTIC, we gotta up our video game. You're in luck because I have been preparing for this shift.
Just slapping a video together for the sake of sharing a video isn't enough. You got to share value.. and when I say value, I talk about what your audience deems valuable.
This means you got to spend time researching a bit on your audience and find out who you can (and wants to) serve. Don't try and be for everyone!
It turns out that a life full of dancing has given me a special edge with video marketing. Because I think in terms of experiences as I would do with a dance performance.
- First, you gotta catch peoples attention and create a desire in them to watch your video. (see the giraffe video for a couple of tips)
- Then, you want to think of the experience you give the viewer on the video.
- And Then, automation comes into the picture and you want to think about where you are leading the viewer after they're done watching the video when they choose to click on your attached link.
Effective video marketing is not just about the video itself, although that might be where the experience starts for the viewer.
You want to think of how the video fits into your brand, Is the video communicating your message in a way your audience will see the value of it and is it congruent with what they see after watching the video?
Phew... Does all of this video stuff seem like a lot?.. Once you figured out everything I've mentioned above, you also have to create the videos
I love teaching effective video marketing and creating videos just as much as I love dancing, which is why you landed here today, because I am now sharing my knowledge about video creation and automation with anyone who wants to learn how to do all of this in an effective way and still have fun.
Many of my marketing friends were struggling with spending too much time creating one video that didn't even get viewed more than a few times - BUMMER! That does NOT add up to fun at all.
So here I am. "Just Felicia" a dancer who desperately wanted to build a business that supported me financially as a dancer... Since then, the mission has become so much bigger.

Felicia has this gift. She's passionate. Very passionate. Most people I know who have the same feature most of the time lack drive and persistence. Felicia is anything else but that. She's passionate about a lot of things. Most of all helping people. She loves this so much it led her to become this always-looking-to-serve and over-delivering marketing dancer I respect so much. Yes! I respect her for the level of commitment she is very rare. For tons of value, she can bring together in one short funny (!!!) video. I respect her for being a yuuge creativity junkie 🤪 yet still manages to keep herself on a leash to focus on what's important now.
Thanks for all your support and great tips dear! I am so happy we've met in Vegas, sis 😘.
Felicia is one of the most amazing, patient, and helpful people on this planet. She will go the extra mile to make sure that you get the training and understanding you need in your business. She is truly an inspiration! The amount of commitment and caring she has for each one of her clients is outstanding. If you are thinking about using her services or learning from her, definitely do it! You won’t find anyone more knowledgeable when it comes to video.
At the end of March 2015, I went from living my dream as a traveling dancer, situated in Vietnam, to being thrown out of the country... #NOTPartOfThePlan
..Less than 24 hours after arriving back home in Denmark I got robbed while sleeping on my brother's couch... On the 1st of April of all days
It was rock bottom! I was left with nothing but debt. It more or less forced me to give up my dance career, at least for the time being and I had to take a low paid 9-5 job
I was heartbroken. I felt like the best part of my life was over. No matter how many hours I worked, I would just be trying to keep up with the interests of my debt, never really paying it off...
I saw my life pass by as an endless stream of Mondays-Fridays with no future and no hope of ever returning to the dance floor...
Have You Ever Had A Dream You Would Do Anything For?
If you have ever had a dream in your heart and soul, that you were courageous enough to chase, you know exactly the feeling when it falls apart...
You can probably easily imagine, that finding network marketing in 2016 was like finding the light at the end of the dark tunnel of a nightmare I had been living...
I finally saw a way to ditch my job and come back to dancing, which was all I ever really wanted
The excitement wore off fast though. I struggled with the traditional methods that my upline was teaching me
Furthermore, I didn't see how it would bring me freedom... Sure didn't seem like my upline had a lot of free time, and what is money, without time?... Plus I wanted to dance, not work even harder for money than I did in my 9-5
It only took about a month of this to figure, that it just wasn’t going to get me to where I wanted to be! I wondered if there was a better way online So I started searching for something on Instagram...
Maaaan there is a LOT of bad information online isn't there!? Took me some time to sort good information from bad.
I had a strong feeling that online entrepreneurship would somehow be the answer... The only problem was that I had NO CLUE how that was going to work
Thank goodness for the internet, right!?.. As I said, It did take some clicking around, but I FOUND IT !
It turns out what you want is marketing skills No matter what industry you're in!
Once I started learning online marketing skills, it became clear to me that network marketing wasn't a match for me (I still support it though).
I loved the marketing part, and while learning I discovered that videos are my thing. I practically breathe video.
So here I am. "Just Felicia", a dancer who desperately wanted to build a business that supported me financially as a dancer. And I'm back to dancing baby - oh yeah.
My mission has become so much bigger since I started. I know how much it has meant to me, to be able to build a business that aligns with and support my dancing.
I want the same for you, whatever you want to build your business around.
