What Barbara's clients say
"I do a lot of work online for webinars, coaching sessions and online meetings. Before I met Barbara Kaplan I never really paid much attention to how I was coming across on screen. Barbara has given me great ideas, tips and guidance as to how I can come across more professionally. It really helps me with developing my brand. In the times we are going through now it is ever so important to present ourselves 'in the best light' and Barbara can do that for you."
Focused Healthy Family Behavioral Transformation Specialist
"Yay! I had the true pleasure of speaking with Barbara today, and in just a few moments she was able to quickly assess what I want my brand message to stand for, and a few mis-alignments in the way I was visually sharing that in my 'zoom room.' As someone who provides coaching and consulting solutions remotely, it is critical I make a good first impression. And, for my clients, having someone like Barbara to help them create a productive, comfortable and on-brand environment could be a game changer. I look forward to working with her in the future!"
"Thank you so much for your tips in hosting a Zoom meeting from my home office. You are so helpful and have a keen eye for detail. I will take your expert advice about lighting and distractions. I'm now looking forward to hosting my Zoom meeting Thursday evening! Thank you so much!"
Independent Distributor BEMER USA
"Barbara Kaplan, Thank you for my Zoom presence and image consultation. I learned more from you in 4 minutes than in the hours I spent watching tutorial videos."
Lynne Wellish CMP, CHSE, CHO

"Loved your article! [24 Ways to Embrace Holistic Living While Working from Home
] You had excellent suggestions to practice holistic living at home, especially during this stressful time of being 'sheltered-in-home.' We each emit our own energy and bring that energy into our space. I believe every space has its own energy and interacts with ours."
Dr. Connie Mariano
Former White House Physician,
Concierge practice at Center for Executive Medicine
"Thank You so much for the help with our zoom project!! You are the BEST!! Not only did I learn a lot, there were things that I would have never thought of as far as staging for the video, etc. I hope everyone will use your expertise."
Kiss Me Kate Boutique
"Much gratitude and love to you Barbara Kaplan.
"Times are changing and shaping into a new normal. I am using my creativity, filming fun videos at all our locations and hosting a live shopping experience on Friday afternoons. Barbara Kaplan and her new venture YOUR ZOOM ROOM are both brilliant. I spent an hour with her on zoom today listening to her much appreciated feedback and her fresh perspective. Her ideas where spot-on and exactly what I needed to hear. She is a bright light with so much to share. Let her help you as you navigate your new normal."
My Sister's Closet
"I had the amazing experience of having Barbara re-design my zoom room! She gave me powerful tips (things I would never have thought of) to help me bring all of my listeners focus to me rather than my surroundings. I'm on video almost daily teaching and promoting my business, so being seen favorably is money in the bank. Thank you Barbara!"
Michelle Lee Coaching
"Barbara, this is not the first time you wow-ed me with your designer insight and brilliance! Now that most (if not all) my meetings, client sessions, and connections are on Zoom, my intention is to make these moments as professional and personal as they would be if I was meeting someone in person, right? I was so focused on watching my client's screen that I completely didn't think about how my room/office looked through my client's eyes. Barb to the rescue...again! I needed better lighting which we discussed. I needed to clean up my world which we did. And that was only the beginning of Barbara's observations. I want more, Barb! Thank you, Barb, for helping me see me through my client's eyes...I'm so ready for my next zoom meeting!"
Susan Brooks Business Specialist
Speaker, Trainer and Consultant
"I have always been self-conscious on how I look on camera. So I shied away from facetime calls, recording videos and even joining zoom meetings. Barbara showed me how making some minor changes in the background and adding some lighting in just the right place could make a huge difference. Wow! My eyes brightened and my face came alive! Social media is important in my business. Now I am excited to use these tips and create the campaign I've always wanted. Thank you, Barbara!"
Frankie Mae Richards
Real Estate Agent/ReMax Fine Properties
"Barbara, I loved our session about how to improve our backgrounds for video meetings, which turned into a wonderfully fun and diverse consultation about how to improve so many things! Thanks to your valuable insights, advice, and generosity of spirit, you are a gift to all who interact with you! You are not only a giant in the interior design world, but are also a warm, caring individual who is genuinely interested in learning about and helping others. A true professional. Thank you again for your transformative session. It was fabulous!"
"I was reading your article 24 Ways to Embrace Holistic Living While Working from Home
while listening to a conference call (you be the judge as to whether I could really do both of those things at the same time). While I was reading....or was I listening....I quietly uncrossed my legs and drank some water - my shoes were already off - and I thought 'now I only have 21 things left to do to improve my work from home environment.' Seriously, since reading your article I have completely changed up my work space and desk habits based on your suggestions and it has definitely improved my productivity, my outlook and my lower back. Sending you thanks and gratitude for your thoughtfulness."
