Alexander Technique Teacher Sharon Jakubecy Details Biggest Mistakes People Make in Marketing Videos and Hosts Free Call Providing Remedies

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 8, 2011) - AmSAT Certified Alexander Technique teacher and "Your Personal Director" Sharon Jakubecy, coaches performers, speakers and entrepreneurs to be calm, confident, and highly concentrated in high-stakes situations. Jakubecy has been training clients for over seven years, helping them excel in auditions, pitch meetings, and public speaking events by improving physical awareness, posture and breath support. On Friday, February 11 Jakubecy will host a call titled "Build Your Business with Sexy, Power-Packed Videos" from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Pacific, and she will guide listeners through exercises that release their "Fight, Flight, or Freeze" response to the camera, so they can effectively communicate their passion and joy in their videos.

On the call, Jakubecy will provide antidotes to the biggest mistakes people make in their marketing videos. She identifies some of these mistakes as:

  • "Rushing and speaking too quickly due to nervousness.

  • Slouching and tightening upper body muscles, which diminishes energy and clamps down on the rib cage, making breathing more difficult.

  • Speaking in a high-pitched and strained voice to communicate excitement."

Jakubecy graduated from U.C. San Diego, where she earned her B.S. in cognitive science and began performing and choreographing modern dance. She integrates her knowledge of the nervous system, her understanding of dynamic body movement, and her experience directing theatrical plays to help clients look, sound, and feel like powerful and charismatic experts.

"I've met many entrepreneurs and business owners who want effective marketing videos, but are too nervous and uncomfortable on camera to create them," Jakubecy says. "With the 'Your Personal Director' program, which combines the Alexander Technique and performance skills with making marketing videos, entrepreneurs eliminate tension and fear on camera, speak with a resonant voice, and communicate with a powerful presence. After a one-day intensive with Jakubecy, the client has numerous marketing videos to use on their website, social media campaign, blog, and email marketing."
