You want to use your creativity
You want to show up in a way that you’re comfortable
You are in need of a change and want to pivot!
You are so much more than your 9-5 and maybe you want to apply your creativity to a new venture. Whether it’s related to your day job or a totally different side-hustle, video offers the opportunity to express your creativity.
Even us introverts can confidently show up online. We all have unique goals and visions for how we want to run our businesses and video offers us the opportunity to speak to our audience in the comfort of our own home without the need for all the anxiety that comes with presenting on a topic in-person.
Burnout is not uncommon and it’s okay to pivot to something new. Devote a couple hours a week to learning a new skill so you can comfortably change directions.
What software do I need for this course?
This course utilizes iMovie, Final Cut Pro, Descript, CapCut, and Canva. You will have the easiest time moving through the content if you use these editing programs. You can get started with free trials or free versions of each of the programs. I chose these because they are what I’m most familiar with and iMovie is a great free option to get started with. Final Cut Pro is a great paid option to transition to if you want to continue growing your editing skills. Canva is a popular online program many dietitians are already using, so it’s a great resource to take advantage of for creating video content.
What equipment do I need for this course?
At minimum you will need a camera and a computer with editing software. I use a smartphone to film, a Mac to edit on, and see previous question about software.

Yes! This is a perfect course to get started with learning to edit videos, including YouTube videos.

How long should it take me to complete this course?
It really depends. The course contains about 9 hours of video modules with projects to complete along the way. It’s a self-paced course and I set it up so that each module should take you about 1-2 weeks to complete if you spend about 1-4 hours each week working through the content. Some modules have more "homework" than others so some may take longer. I expect this to be a 12 week course, but you have lifetime access to the content so you can really move at your own pace.
How long do I have access to the content?
Pay-in-full enrollments have access for the lifetime of the course. Student discounted enrollment comes with one year of access. Membership plans are either monthly or annual access.
Does this course include 1:1 coaching?
No. However, there are weekly office hours to get your questions answered, plus you have 24/7 access to a private Facebook group. You can also email me if you have any questions that you’re not comfortable sharing in the group.
Do you offer refunds or a money-back guarantee?
If you sign up and start to move through the content, but find you’re not thrilled with the course, I offer a 30-day refund policy.
In order to qualify for a refund you must contact me at email@example.com within 30 days of purchase AND have consumed less than 15% of the course content.
I do this to maintain the integrity of the course and accompanying materials.

Will this course teach me editing in Tiktok and Instagram?
No. This course will not be teaching editing directly in the TikTok or Instagram apps.
What if I use a PC and NOT a Mac?
I suggest checking out one of my mini courses, which include segments of this main course so you can focus on the software options that you're comfortable working in. I'm working on adding more PC-friendly software, but can't guarantee when updates will launch. You would likely be able to glean a lot of information from the course, but it may be challenging to follow along with the projects using PC software.
Will this course teach me how to use a DSLR camera, filming equipment, etc?
No. I do show you my equipment, but this course does NOT go into detail on how to use the equipment, videography, photography, etc.
Does this course offer CEUs?
Not yet, but it's on my radar for the future if there is enough interest.
