My Expertise

I’m Mary O’Donohue, a Media Coach, Best Selling Author, and 30 year TV veteran who has worked behind the scenes on everything from local and network newscasts, to prime time news, entertainment, and music specials, to big time talk shows like The Oprah Winfrey Show.

As a Media Final ThumbnailCoach, I support authors, experts, and entrepreneurs who are seeking publicity to expand their messages through television, radio, newspapers and magazines, as well as on the internet.  People like chefs, travel experts, artists, psychologists, business owners, doctors, fitness gurus, personal growth coaches, financial experts, fashion leaders, and non-fiction authors – in other words – people like you, who have gained a particular expertise and have the desire to share their knowledge with a large audience.

As an author of a non-fiction book myself, I know first-hand how much time and dedication goes into creating a book or product.  But it doesn’t end there.  That’s when the job of marketing comes in, and the challenge is, most authors and experts aren’t marketers, and they don’t know how to navigate the incredibly complex media landscape.

That’s where I come in. As a best selling author who has been interviewed in front of the camera many times, I know what it’s like to step way out of my comfort zone and into the media spotlight. It’s scary. Even for someone like me, who has spent much of my life behind the scenes. I mean, to me, media is home. But I’d always been behind the camera. Never in front. So, believe me, I get it. I know the whole process can be intimidating.

That’s why I’m here to support you, no matter where you are on your media journey. Have no idea how to pitch your message to the media? I can guide you with insider tips from my years of experience. How about once you get that coveted interview? Not sure what to say or how to say it? A media interview propelled my book to best seller status, in part because I was very clear on my message. So I’m here to help you become crystal clear on your own media message and teach you how to deliver it with confidence and ease. Looking for ways to build and sustain a relationship with your audience that will foster true connection? That’s the key that often gets overlooked and I can show you how to build that connection and why it’s important to the media.

My job is to help you become the trusted resource in your field, the go-to expert for media interviews, so you can share your important message with the people who need it, and make a significant impact. I’m here to prepare you to step into the media spotlight, even if it’s a leap of faith, and a scary one at that. I’m helping people like doctors, business owners, and authors do that right now, and I’m ready to help you too.

I encourage you to join my community today to start receiving insider tips, behind the scenes tactics, and effective strategies to help you achieve media success.
