She knows she’s only got three minutes — that’ll either transform her life or end like previous ones.

This time, she’s leaving nothing to chance. She’s unleashing her full vocal repertoire.

When Emma sings the last note, you can tell what’s coming next. The standing ovation says it all.

A few weeks later, she signs the coveted three million dollar deal.

Emma’s success story didn’t start with this audition. It began with days of rehearsal when no one was watching and nights of preparation for an opportunity that’s not in sight.

“It is better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.” — Whitney Young Jr

Three minutes can change your life. That elevator pitch can turn your passion into profit. The question is whether you’ll show up prepared.
