Your Cues Bonuses are here!

A Message From Vanessa

THANK YOU for your trust, excitement, and commitment to Cues. This is more than a book. This is your guide for taking control of your life, better understanding yourself and others, and getting more for your efforts.

I believe we all deserve to have access to this information especially when it impacts every facet of our lives.

Cues are the powerful verbal, nonverbal, and vocal signals humans send to each other. What we don’t realize is that we send thousands of these cues to each other every day, yet they often go missed. I believe those cues are all filled with opportunities.

What Next ?


You made it all the way through Cues AND utilized your tools and resources to get the MOST out of this book. It’s impossible to read and apply what you learn in Cues and not have it improve your life, career, relationships, and overall happiness. I’m so excited for you!!! 

Look at the momentum you’ve created for yourself! When you control and leverage the tiny signals you’re sending – from your stance and facial expressions to your word choice and vocal tone – to improve your personal and professional relationships you truly will never be overlooked, underestimated, or misunderstood again.

Don’t worry, this isn’t the end.

If you like CUES, you’ll LOVE People School. 

People School is our 12 module advanced science-based interpersonal communication training program. It’s designed to help you advance your career, stand out from your peers, and give you the communication foundation you need to develop purposeful, powerful, and authentic people skills.

Most of us have not been given all the communication tools we need to succeed. We learned technical skills and job skills in school but were barely given any communication skills training. No matter how talented you are, you cannot succeed if you can’t interview effectively, negotiate your worth, or be indispensable on a team.

I want you to be recognized for your talents. I want to get your ideas heard. I want you to be paid what you deserve. To do this, I have created the ultimate people skills training. People School will teach you all the soft skills you were never taught in school.

My goal is to give you a foundation for effective communication you can use for the rest of your life to help you achieve your mission, up your impact, and share your ideas with the world.

It’s time to get more for your efforts. Go from being overlooked, no matter how hard you work, to UNSTOPPABLE.
