I promise to show you how to be more charismatic, confident, powerful, and negotiate better deals with everyone you meet.
Have you ever looked at a magazine article and thought, “I could have written that!”?
Or seen a fancy photo framed in a coffee shop selling for $1,200 and thought, “I could take a photo like that.”
But when it comes to getting started or asking others to pay you what you’re worth, you fall short?
My friend and colleague Vanessa Van Edwards -- a behavioral investigator and published author who is regularly featured on TV and radio -- tells me it’s all down to charisma.
To most folks, charisma is a mysterious, magical force. Either you have it... or you don’t.
But what Vanessa has found out is that it’s a middle ground between competence and warmth. While few people understand it, you can actually use a few simple techniques to create it.
Think about it this way:
Someone who is very warm is seen as sweet but not powerful. She may want to charge higher fees. She may want others to respect her work. But when push comes to shove, others know they can negotiate her down. She feels uncomfortable at social gatherings and never really knows what to say to make herself sound interesting.
– Giacomo Casanova
On the other side of this, you may have someone who is very smart and competent, but they’re seen as overly confident, unapproachable, and disingenuous.
No one really likes working with them. And they’re not seen as trustworthy.
If like so many of us out there, you know you fall somewhere in this spectrum… you know you deserve more respect, you wish you had more influence, more impact on the people you meet...
You wish you knew the right things to say and do in social situations, and you wish you felt more comfortable marketing yourself… then you should know…
The real key to success is less about how you feel and more about how others see you.
You can make yourself look and sound confident, powerful, influential, and interesting which will in turn make it easier for you to sell your work, negotiate higher fees, build better relationships, make new contacts, and claim more respect. And these skills are actually easy to learn.
It’s why I’m writing to you today.
It’s Your Time to Shine
The secret to being a charismatic, influential person…
to landing the success you deserve…
Confidence and charisma are the keys to your success. Charisma gives you power… it’s a vital key to influencing those around you and influencing the outcome of your efforts in life.
And whether you think you have the confidence of a bear or the ferocity of a lion, it’s the way the world sees you and the people skills you possess that really determines your success.
We all know incredibly talented people who never see the limelight they deserve and incredibly untalented people with money and success beyond our wildest dreams.
Study after study has found this to be true.
I don’t usually talk about this kind of thing. But all scientific study aside, I’ve seen this for years in our members and those who come to our live events. And I see it even more when I look at myself in the mirror.
Some days I feel incredibly confident but people ask me what’s wrong. And other days, my world is falling apart but I get up on stage and rock it like a rock star.
And I’m not alone, here’s what some of our readers told me just recently…
“I have a hard time getting started. I wonder if my confidence is to blame.”
“I want to turn myself into a doer and not just a listener.”
“I'm already confident but I could use help with self promotion.”
“I’d like the opportunity to be successful at something. I’m too shy to put myself out there.”
“I'm always looking for a better way to do things. Maybe things would be easier if I could articulate my arguments better.”
“I'm confident in myself but not in marketing.”
“I need help pushing through a rut I can't seem to get out of. Maybe the way others see me is not the way I see myself.”
I’m not talking about faking it until you make it. I know those tricks, too. And they’re good, but they don’t always work.
I’m talking about changing ALL of your interactions with people so that you’re actually living a more genuine life. A life where you’re in charge of the way people think about you.
Take this story for example…
My personal journey in becoming who
I want to be…
Picture this: 150 people in a room sitting on folding chairs. A brightly-lit stage. A video camera rolling, recording every “ummm”, gulp or nervous laugh I make to be watched by hundreds more spectators at home.
I’ve spoken on stage before but always to people I know. Always when I look out in the audience I see people like you – my readers and followers of Great Escape Publishing. I know you from Facebook, from our live events and from comments on our website. When I look out, I see a sea of familiar faces and this helps to control my nerves.
But this time, it’s not my stage and there are no familiar faces in the crowd.
– Samuel Johnson
Now, if you’ve seen me speak before, you may think it comes naturally. But the friends and family who know me know that I have incredible stage fright.
Sometimes (many times actually) unbeknownst to the folks in the audience, I’ll go as far as to get sick in the bathroom before going on stage. That’s how bad it is.
So picture this: I’m about to go on a new stage, my nerves are getting the better of me, the guy in front of me has the audience out of their seat laughing, and I’m behind the green door pacing and trying to keep my lunch down. How am I going to follow him?
I turn away from the door, grab a nearby trash can wondering if anyone will see me, and then I remember the key, and all of my talks with Vanessa about portraying the “you” I want others to see. I remember her tips for finding power. And I remember what I need to say to make myself interesting and magnetic.
Can I really stand on stage and give the audience this and make them love me? I actually asked myself that.
I took a minute. I relaxed through my breath. I stood up tall and straight and put a smile on my face. I got back in line behind the door, ready to enter the stage. And when they called my name, I was ready. I felt self-assured and powerful. And it worked.
White lights in my face. An audience of hundreds with an online audience of thousands. I made everyone laugh. I made a few people stand up. And at the end, I was told it was the best presentation at the event.
So what happened during those few minutes to vanquish
my fear and impact my success?
Instead of letting my fear hold me hostage, I stepped up and became the person I wanted to be.
Now granted, I still get scared before stepping on stage. My fear isn’t gone. None of our fears will ever be GONE.
But with these keys to charisma and confidence strongly in my belt, I can manage my fears.
And I’m seeing the difference in my ability to make difficult decisions at home… to better my relationships with family and friends… to be who I want to be at social gatherings and work events… and, ultimately, just feel more secure in my own skin.
Self-promotion sometimes seems hard. But it doesn’t have to be. We all deserve it. We just don’t stand up for ourselves. Or if we do, it’s interpreted in a negative way.
It’s why what I’m telling you is so important.
It’s not just about:
- Making more money
- Negotiating higher fees
- Building better relationships at home
- Sealing deals faster
- Feeling more comfortable in social settings
- Becoming our best selves
It’s about everything we do from negotiating remodeling fees on our house… to standing up for our children or parents when they’re treated unfairly… to asking our boss for a raise and ensuring our car mechanic doesn’t take advantage.
– Vanessa Van Edwards, The Science of People
When you understand this idea, you’ll quickly see why some people get paid more than others… why some people ALWAYS seem to be comfortable in social settings… and why others always fall short.
There’s actual science behind this. Behavioral expert Vanessa van Edwards, will show you all that. It’s not theory or that “fake it till you make it” stuff.
It’s so much more. And what’s really great is that I told my colleague and friend Vanessa about all our problems as writers and photographers and she’s created a system just for us – because here’s what I already know about you…
Master Any Encounter
You’re already great. I know because you wouldn’t be attracted to the idea of traveling the world, meeting new people, enjoying other cultures, and doing it all unlike a typical tourist if you weren’t.
You’re here for a reason. You fit in and you belong here. You’re a good person. You’re interesting. And you’re exactly who I want to meet at cocktail parties and who I want to pay for family photos.
The key now is getting all those great things about you out into the open for the rest of the world to see. It’s time to make the world see all your best qualities.
It’s time to send out your travel stories and post your favorite photographs and have the world thank you in return for giving them a new perspective. It can happen, you know.
Confidence helped your fellow members transform their lives…
“Back in 2013, before I attended a photography workshop I really hesitated. I wondered if I’d be good enough, and something inside me told me probably not. I thought I’d be the only beginner in the workshop, I really felt everybody else there would be so far ahead of me with their photography.
“Today I can’t tell you how happy I am that I took the chance to go. Not only did I pick up the practical skills I needed but I got the hope and confidence too!
“Now I sell my photos online and in print magazines, I sell my photos on several stock sites where they sell really well. I have traveled to Ireland, Fiji and Paris in the last few months alone… I’m having a blast. I’m making my dreams come true with travel writing and photography.”
– Theresa St. John…
who in a moment of confidence grabbed hold of a new opportunity!
“Vanessa, I am an avid follower of yours ever since I purchased your People skills course! Which has been the best money I have spent! I have tried plenty of the skills as I battled socially. I work in marketing so I definitely needed those skills. In fact, I now sign up for any networking event I can find and can’t wait to try out a different skill every time. It has made such a difference in my life. Thank you. Keep up the good work! You are changing lives.”
who is delighted with her new found confidence skills.
“I recently submitted to three stock sites after agonizing over it for months. I guess I was worried that none of the photos would be accepted. However, I was pleasantly surprised that most of them were accepted! Now I have photos online and it is time to stop procrastinating and get many more submitted”
– Steven Ward…
who took the plunge and is now well on his way to success.
Here’s what expert Vanessa Van Edwards says about all this…
“Confidence and projection of your attitude is everything. If you want to win the deal, get the date, move forward on your passion projects, negotiate the sale or influence others around you, you have to look the look and talk the talk. You have to project confidence and be confident.”
And the best part is: This can be taught.
So who is this Vanessa person and why are her methods so great?
I’ll tell you because I looked for a long time to find someone like this and I’m so glad I found her…
In 2011, Vanessa Van Edwards founded Science of People, a research group dedicated to cracking the code on how to succeed in business and life by understanding human behavior.
Today, companies pay her big bucks to work with their sales teams, bring confidence to their presenters, give their employees better people and negotiation skills. She’s routinely invited to work with and even consult Fortune 500 companies including American Express, Johnson & Johnson, Clean & Clear, and Symantec.
She’s featured on NPR, the Wall Street Journal, the Today Show, USA Today, and more…
She says confidence comes down to creating influence and establishing power.
It’s also about body language and projecting who you really are on the outside for the world to see.
“Here’s how Vanessa helped one photographer triple her fees.”
Confidence leads to influence, she says. And influence to power. Those who can improve their levels of confidence, become more powerful in everything they do.
Confident people are infectious—which is great because it means you have the power to not only change yourself but also change those around you.
– Vanessa Van Edwards
And Vanessa has worked to prove that it’s true in everyone from CEOs of major corporations to politicians to photographers and travel writers trying to create a side income.
With her continued research into the Science of People and how confidence is key to achieving our true potential, there are literally tens of thousands of people who want her to help them improve their lives. She has already taught over 25,000 students how to be more successful using her methods.
“I feel like I have a super-power after taking Vanessa’s course. Her blend of science and self-help is brilliant. Thank God I found her work.”
– Dave Halpreen
“Thank you for a LIFE CHANGING course. Amazing!”
– Jean Holland
“Vanessa’s work is informative, educational and fun. Everyone could use these tools in both their jobs and daily lives.”
– Nancy Swaffield, Conference Chairman, Credit Professionals International
Vanessa is constantly on the move, traveling all over the world to speak at conferences, lead seminars, train business leaders, and work with private clients to enhance their lives.
Getting time on her calendar is no small achievement. Yet it’s likely one of the most important things I can do for you this year!

A Scientific Approach to More Success in Travel Writing and Photography
Everything Vanessa will show you in this program is based on science-backed academic research, expert findings, and personal case studies.
As she warned me; “I’m allergic to BS... I’ll show your community exactly what works in business and personal life. They’ll double their power of influence and feel more confident about the year ahead of them immediately.”
You’re going to learn practical, real-life skills you can put to use immediately. No fluff -- guaranteed!
“Vanessa, You are an inspiration to me! I absolutely love your work and have found your courses extremely valuable!
I am a young professional learning how to navigate the corporate business world. I’ve completed your Master Your People Skills class and I received a raise at work as a direct outcome. Every day I look for ways to practice the skills you taught and I am gradually adopting them all into my tool box.
Vanessa, thank you so much for the work you’ve produced! You certainly have achieved your mission of helping people become their best self and realize their value with your programs. I look forward to taking more of your courses!” –Jazz
“The material in this Confidence training helped me build confidence for presentations (I used to chicken out a lot!) and for encounters with my patients (I’m a physician) and colleagues. Here's an example. Within two weeks watching it, my immediate supervisor commented on how I was no longer sitting back during meetings, only saying the occasional word or phrase… That I had become more forthcoming with my opinions and input to discussions. He has since delegated me more and more leadership and management roles in the department. Let's put it this way: people around me seem to have more confidence in me than before!” –D. Kamwana
By the time you complete her confidence and charisma system you’ll walk away with the information, insight, and practical tools to finally reveal your “inner awesome”... and pursue the life you want with confidence.
This intense training session you’ll get with Vanessa can quite literally change the rest of your life for the better.
Private training with Vanessa has helped people find their voice in the world, earn long-desired promotions… launch new businesses… get that “lucky” break (that’s not really luck but confidence)… uncover new meaning in their friendships, hobbies, and spiritual lives… But she doesn't offer private coaching anymore at any price. That's how busy she is and how hard her schedule is to crack.
But thanks to the relationship I’ve already built with her… and how excited she is to work with our group… you won’t need to spend thousands of dollars to work with Vanessa.
I have managed to get the cost for this course down to $399. And when you sign up here within the next five days, you get a first-in discount and pay only $129.
Act today and you’ll save more than 65% off, and gain the confidence to go out there and land the success you deserve.
So many of our now successful readers, much like Theresa above, have told me how they were afraid to try, how they didn’t have the confidence to join a writer’s workshop as a beginner, or submit a photos a second time - after the first rejection... but having overcome that obstacle, they found success and are now happier than ever in their lives!
I want this for you, too.
I want you to be able to walk into a coffee shop and ask about hanging your photos on the wall for sale. And to do it with the confidence that shows you’re a professional worth dealing with.
I want you to approach your local newspaper about an article and ask the right kind of questions, use positive, assertive body language, make that editor love you… and land that gig.
To take the plunge… to put yourself into all the different situations that will bring you closer to your goals… approaching publishers, making new contacts, meeting potential clients, getting behind the scenes at local events, landing complimentary perks, FAM trips, exploring photo opportunities and story leads… having fun…
Using your new confidence and charisma skills, you can influence and impact the people you meet, so you get a YES!
Member, Hugo Daigle landed a great opportunity just by showing off his photos at work: “…the big news is that yesterday I had my biggest assignment so far. A wedding!!! Friends from the Radisson are getting married, the groom loved the pictures that I brought to work just to show and it turned out a new opportunity! “
And when Theresa St. John took a chance and delivered 12 pieces of fine art to the country store in Massachusetts she wrote me to say “I told the owner I would try it - see what happened. Guess what? I got an email from her and she just sold the first one! It’s a simple image: red ceramic pitcher on old beat up table with spray of forsythia. I took it last year while on a road trip with a good friend! I am so excited!!!
“I love this new life - embracing it!!!” She says.
When you talk to people with confidence and charisma, you can land some nice perks too…
Here’s my Promise…
You can join in on Vanessa’s Complete Charisma System absolutely risk-free.
I’ve paid her speaker fee up front so you don’t have to. And if it’s not everything she says it is, I’ll buy your system back from you, so you’re not out any of your investment.
If however, it’s everything I’ve said it is and more, then it’s a modest fee to change the way the world sees you from here on out.
To act with confidence, increase your power of influence and impact on others, so that you’re getting more out of life every time you step out your door.
Join today here…
And again, the risk is all mine and not yours.
Everything you want in life including a lifetime of travel, adventure, and success as a travel writer, photographer, or blogger… all comes back to this.
With increased charisma, confidence, and influence, you’ll be the one with success stories this year. With power, editors will find you, not the other way around. And with negotiation and people skills you’ll finally be able to get the money and accolades you deserve.
Don’t take a chance in assuming this won’t work for you. That, like Theresa thought, the real problem is you’re not very talented. That’s not the problem! Just sign up and see for yourself the powerful effect confidence can have in your life. You have nothing to lose.
You can check out everything Vanessa has to show you, and if you decide this system is not right for you, I will personally buy back your seat. No questions asked.
Give yourself the priceless gift of more confidence now. You have nothing to lose and an incredible new life skill to gain.
