Hi, I’m Sandra Dee Robinson!

Years ago, I was asked to host an infomercial (There was a great payday attached to the job) and all I had to do was simply audition as protocol. I was already well-known as a daytime actress, so the casting director was confident that I was the one for the job.  Then, as I began the read, the director interrupted and asserted, “Sweetie, just be yourself.”

I fell apart, piece by piece.  Any confidence I had left me.. vaporizing through my shaking voice, knocking knees and eventual tears.

(shuffle feet, exit stage right).

I had nothing in that file labeled, “Self worth.”  Growing up I was told by my mother that life would have been better if I hadn’t been born. That was a lie, but I owned it.  So, I became an actor so I could avoid being me.

I cried the whole way home in the car, not for the loss of the potential paycheck, but because I felt completely lost.  I had no idea what my natural communication strengths were, or how to speak to an audience of any size without shaking.  I wasn’t even good at initializing conversation (“shy” was an understatement).

I was successful, and doing my “Day job,” a steady TV acting role just fine, but I needed what I later learned is called a “Breakthrough” if I was ever going to do more with my current level of success.

I had to figure out a way to make my life and career work. I had to find my own voice.

It was 7 years, 13 coaches, 2 therapists, three certifications, dozens of conferences and self-help books and plenty of trial-and-error when I realized I was equipped.  I could make a difference.  I had a voice and I had a purpose. It was there all along.

More than anything, I knew I could help others with similar realization, and after all I went through, I knew without a doubt, I could do it effectively.

You could meet other’s expectations or you could exceed your own daily. That’s Empowerment!

Empowerment is the catalyst and confidence and courage are the byproducts that lead us to create the life and business that we love.  The one we are Designed and destined to live.

I learned that no matter how educated you are, how good looking you are, talented, wealthy or famous, you still have to face the crippling self-doubt that comes with expanding current boundaries and trying something new.

Let’s be real; For most of clientele, the spotlight is not what they trained for.

Whether you are a doctor, lawyer, business or life coach, CEO, inventor or author you probably realize that opportunities to speak, be interviewed, create a video or even a TV show are fantastic for brand awareness and revenue, when done well.  

With the investment of years of school, or personal experience in your field, there is a lot at stake with a spotlight opportunity. These are high risk presentations.

I show you how to shine in them.  From a place of self-understanding and appreciation you can build a personal brand and business that thrives and feeds not only your family, but your soul.

Every conversation and opportunity is rich with opportunity to thrive and make a difference.

You just have to care about your life’s mission with soul stirring fire and stop wasting your time judging yourself. You’ve got this.

I created Charisma on Camera to help brilliant people facing the same big problem I overcame – getting stuck when it’s time to really connect with an audience on screen and on stage.

The techniques I’ve developed come from years of studying with top communication experts, wildlife biologists and performance coaches mixed in with personal experiences from an acting career that continues to thrive after more than two decades. My speaking engagements, seminars and one-on-one training focus on helping people:

  • Tap into their powerful personal presence.
  • See their true passion more clearly.
  • Find their unique story that connects with the video audience.
  • Create rapport when speaking to the camera.
  • Use proven strategies to come across as authentic and confident on screen.

(Featuring Charismatic Cowgirl Programs™)

Getting back to nature often creates major breakthroughs for top-level professionals that are stuck in offices or living in high stress situations all week long. My nature-based Leadership Training Clinics (Featuring Charismatic Cowgirl Programs™) are ideal for anyone that wants to understand how to build better relationships, leadership skills and confidence in all situations in a most authentic, safe and natural way.

After losing your sense of self to demands at work, home and business travel, it’s time to take a deep breath, reconnect with the support of the natural world and become more in tune with your own energy and the message it conveys.

Our headline program is Charismatic Cowgirl™, designed for success-minded women. And Horsepowered Clinics can be personalized for groups and companies (men and women). These clinics will help you:

  • Understand why others react to you the way they do.
  • Gain greater confidence to master important situations.
  • Learn how to be a better leader at work and home.
  • Discover new ways to develop healthier relationships that add to the abundance in your life.
  • Enjoy refreshing time in nature with like-minded people!

Why it Works:

  • Some people say it feels like magic – but it is actually a science!
  • Studies are now showing there is scientific proof behind the transformation we feel around horses.
  • We understand even more why for years equine-assisted therapies, both psychological and physical, have had great success!

Horses are empathetic and astute. It’s as if they were perfectly designed to allow God to speak to you through them. At our events, every person has a different experience, but always an honest and enriching one!

I’ve been a passionate animal advocate my entire life, which has greatly influenced my personal and professional goals. The power of connecting with animals is profound on many levels. In my work I have witnessed amazing transformations in children and adults when they bond with another living creature without words.

The Charismatic Cowgirl™ Events and our group training are designed to help people learn how to control their energy and communicate on the most honest level through interaction with horses. These gentle beasts are nature’s preeminent readers of energy. Horses don’t care about all the achievements you’ve made, they only understand your personal presence in that moment. These day clinics help you learn to relinquish control yet be in full command of your communication with positive energy.
