New Product – The Video Presentation Creator – coming soon

Coming the week of October 14th or so: The Video Presentation Creator!


Finally! An easy way to create your own videos!

This new product is a collection of 25 Power Point and Keynote (the Mac version of Powerpoint!) slides with music, transitions, a built in story that you can modify for any product or any business you’re in… all done and ready for you to simply change the text.

I’ll show you how to instantly create a video (just like the sample videos below!)

Here’s an example:

• New animated characters from my cartoonist brother Dave!
• Done for you slides with music included! You don’t have to know a thing about Powerpoint … You just edit the text. I’ll show you how (it’s super easy)


If you don’t have Powerpoint (I’ll show you how to get it for just $9.99) or Keynote (it’s FREE for Mac users!)

… I’ll show you how to use these slides with Google Slides (which is free free free!).

So, there’s no reason to be afraid of video creation any more.
