Amy Hertz. That’s me. Message impact is my sport, and amplifying yours is where I live. I’ve published lots of bestselling books and I’ve had web content go viral. I’ve helped high profile individuals create high stakes presentations and up the ante on their speaking skills. That moment when a client lights up with discovery of their authentic message is what I get up for every day. Putting your ideas into the perfect package and positioning is my favorite puzzle to solve.
