a proven process

Hi, I’m Dominic, founder of SmartCatholics. Like you, I’m incredibly busy, but feel an ongoing need to create video series and shows. I love the magic of live conversation – and so do our audiences!

So I created a simple, rinse-and-repeat process that’s allowed me to keep putting videos out there. A process that’s low-pressure, low-maintenance, and makes me look like I’m hiring a production studio.

It’s all about finding the simplest path, with the least amount of work. And after 3 shows, I want to help you with yours.
