Carrie's Communication Confidence Academy

A Coaching Program to Build Confidence in Elevator Pitches, Networking, and Virtual Coffee Chats | Created by Carrie Sharpe

What's this all about?


Most people don't think they need help speaking. After all, speaking is something we've done since we were toddlers. However, communicating for business is a totally different ballgame. It’s all about making connections, building networks, and executing impressive collaborations. 

You may be asking yourself these questions:

“I’d love to make connections, but where do I begin?”

“Isn’t online networking simply clicking a 'like' or 'follow' button?

“Won’t in-person networking make me look like a bumbling idiot?”

“What is collaboration anyway, and how on earth do I implement it?”

"How can I possibly get over my fear of talking to people?"

Connecting, networking, and collaborating is possible. You can transform your doubt and fear into courage and confidence as you learn how to:

  • Develop and deliver an elevator pitch that will spark massive amounts of interest in your business
  • Clearly and succinctly answer the question, “What do you do?”
  • Master one of the most crucial skills you need to grow your business: online and in-person networking 
  • Forge new business relationships in an effective and non-awkward way
  • Become an expert in hosting your very own virtual coffee chats (from the comfort of your flannel pajama pants if you want!) 

Through this 90-day online academy, I will draw from over twenty-five years of public speaking and communication experience to be your "Confidence Cheerleader" while you become competent, comfortable, and proficient in the world of business communication!

This is not a group coaching program. It's you, me, and more YOU. We'll work together to achieve the results you need. So rest assured... there are no freaky hot-seat scenarios that will put you on the spot in front of other people. I want you to gain confidence, and that's tough to do if you're panicking. You'll have to step out of your comfort zone a bit, but we're not doing anything that would cause you to freeze up or vomit on your shoes. I'll hold your hand as much as you need, and I'll be your Cheerleader through this entire program!

"I am living testimony that Carrie Sharpe can walk anyone through their fears and self-doubt when it comes to speaking in front of people. I have a marketing business and have helped many clients create awesome videos for their businesses. It was easy being behind the camera.

I attended a class Carrie taught on Facebook Live. She had the whole room 'Go-Live' but I didn’t, I couldn’t, I froze. I wasn’t going live on Facebook, no-way, not me.

I learned of the impact FB Live had on businesses and knew I needed to figure it out. So, I scheduled a one-on-one consult with Carrie. I already felt like I knew Carrie just from watching her Facebook Live sessions and I knew she had what I needed.

Carrie offered me valuable tips and advice on changing my mindset that was holding me back.

Now I am creating my own videos and Facebook Lives and am doing it with confidence and ease!" -Maria Page, President of Above & Beyond Enterprises, LLC
