I was a high school dropout, with no connections in TV news.
Through hustle, positivity and persistence, I put myself through college and worked my way up to be a reporter in a top 30 market.
But...I had always wanted to work in NYC. It took an “aha moment” for me to realize the only thing holding me back was ME. In short, I got the F out of my own way and into my dream job.
From there, I became an anchor in Washington, D.C., a correspondent at a network, met my husband and rescued the sweetest dog ever.
Once I realized my dream life, it got me thinking, what if EVERYONE had the tools to get what they want in life?
Here’s the thing: I know I could have made it to my dream markets quicker - years quicker - if I only had a “me” to guide me.
That’s why I’m here to show YOU how.
HERE’S WHAT COMES WITH THE MEMBERSHIP:
- One Group Coaching/Review Call a month with Debra. Coaching and advice on anything - from your reel to recent work, to confidence to mindset to asking for what you want to creating your career.
- One Zoom call a month with different movers and shakers in the industry, from EPs to NDs to Talent Recruiters, Producers, Anchors and Reporters in top markets and at network.
- One Monthly Masterclass via Zoom where we review stories, answer questions, learn from special guests, or do a deep dive into a specific aspect of news reporting, MMJing or anchoring.
- Access to Debra's exclusive private "BE POWERFUL" Facebook Group, where you can watch the comprehensive library of past Zoom calls, network with like-minded and supportive journalists and get tips, support and inspiration.
- Member discounts for Debra's Digital Course: "Two Weeks To Top Ten TV Market Confidence On Air" and on dedicated coaching sessions.
Why The Membership? Because if Debra can navigate the TV news industry and land herself a job in the number one market and at network by herself, she can help you too.
At $29/month, this costs far less than what you'd pay an agent. If you're not ready to make the agent commitment and want to grow your skills and take the next step in your career, this is the group for you!
And, you can cancel anytime.
"Debra Alfarone's coaching advice is invaluable. She has helped me feel more confident in my journalistic abilities. She is passionate and takes the time to understand one's aspirations to help them achieve that goal."
- Sierra Fox, Reporter, Fox 5 DC
"Debra is the mentor, coach and cheerleader everyone needs in their newsroom. But you won’t get this kind of feedback at your station. Your colleagues are busy, and to be honest the pointers Debra has are probably ones people around you haven’t heard before."
- Laura Simon, Morning Anchor, 5News
"If you want to learn how to conquer the streets of major markets and write and speak like a pro, then listen to Debra!"
- Allison Kaden, Reporter, PIX 11 News
"There are NOT many things that are tailored to journalists that are affordable and ACTUALLY HELPFUL. This is both!!
