Video presence training to get better on-camera! Get confident on-camera to create effective, authentic videos for your social media business content creation.
Last Oct. 2020, hubs and I were supposed to be in the UK for our BIG European trip .. We had planned to spend 3 weeks travelling through Wales, Scotland, Ireland and England enjoying the culture, scenery, food and everything else that the UK has to offer. Unfortunately, COVID-19 happened . And missed travel is just one of the many challenges it created.
Yes, it can be really frustrating when things don’t go according to our plan, especially if we don’t know what is going to unfold or what the next “anything” is going to look like. BUT, I believe that these restrictions and struggles are TEMPORARY, regardless of not knowing when it will pass, everything in life really is temporary.
So instead of focusing on things that I cannot change right now, I'm learning to EMBRACE the different things that I can, so I started planning smaller trips or getaways that are still safe and socially distant like glamping, I think we’re finally...
Have you noticed that in these past months, nearly everybody has now, in some way learned to be a performer or a speaker in front of a camera? That's because showing up for your business especially through VIDEO, is now a NECESSITY! Why? Because it is the EASIEST and MOST EFFECTIVE way of creating or maintaining that connection with your clients.
Video Marketing is 60-80% more effective than written content alone. If you’re not using video already you’re setting yourself up for a huge disadvantage, but it's not too late to change that. We must change with the times in order to survive.
If you’re a newbie entrepreneur, using video allows you to introduce yourself and your business.
If you’re already an established entrepreneur, using video will let you expand your reach in your business.
I also know that a lot of entrepreneurs struggle getting in front of the camera because of thoughts like...
They don’t know where and how to...
WHO do you think you should be talking to when filming your videos?
Are you speaking to random people, scary strangers, your best friend, your mom..your dog?
Video is a very VALUABLE and EFFECTIVE tool to be visible and to connect with the world. That little lens dot in your phone is a massively POWERFUL PORTAL for your energy, your message and for what your soul is driving to share.
It is not just an inanimate object you are speaking to, it is what is allowing you to speak to your people.
It is the primary means for most EFFECTIVE communication, marketing and relationship building that is available to us right now.
That is why it is important to work on your RELATIONSHIP with the camera to be able to GENUINELY share your energy, your message, your service and your product directly to your TARGET audience.
The idea of talking to the...

There's this interesting rule that's a 7%, 38%, 55% concept that's based on this Psychologist, Albert Mehrabian's, research that shows that meaning and speech is conveyed in these proportions. Tone of voice accounts for 38% of the way the audience perceives you, and body language accounts for 55% and words, what we say, accounts for just 7% That's it. That's a huge part of why video converts so much higher than static images or written posts alone, and why the delivery of your message matters significantly. 93% significantly to be exact..
A Maya Angelou quote says
Video converts so much higher than writing and images alone because of how it makes people feel.
Using Video content is critical for the survival and growth of your business. But not just because storytelling is powerful and our energy creates connection; it's also...
No matter how prepared you are, getting in front of the camera can still make you feel nervous. So I want to share a video marketing tip with you on how to push the nervous energy out before recording your video.
Click on the image to find out how.
Building relaxation and loosening up will help you push out that nervous energy you feel before filming your video. We need to get a little bit messy first in order for us to get real!
So if you ever feel your nerves spike before you hit record, remember to do these five simple steps.
Staying in our comfort zone can feel safe, easy and assuring. It’s ok to want to feel that level of security BUT if we stay there, we quite literally stop ourselves from growing, because nothing changes. It is when we are pushed out of our comfort zone that we discover what we are capable of because when we are challenged, we become stronger, more productive, more creative and more resilient than ever!
Even with self-care practices, we're bound to feel stress and overwhelm at some point. To help us operate from a clear mind and high energy, try these three things!
1 - Start your “workday” with a needle moving task.
>> This gets your energy flowing and helps to build the momentum you need to continue with your important tasks throughout the day. It also keeps you out of the inbox and on social media rabbit hole!
>>Check that big thing off your checklist at the beginning of the day, so you won’t have it creeping in the back of your mind as the day progresses.
2 - Know how to manage your energy in a way that works best for you.
>>Our energy fluctuates, so strategically plan your tasks at the peaks and breaks at the lows of your energy level to help you maintain staying in flow throughout the day.
>>Put those low energy tasks like folding laundry, making a grocery list, responding...
No matter which path we pursue in life, it will have its own unique set of both benefits and challenges. And since you're here right now I'm willing to bet that you're an entrepreneur (or thinking about being one) and that you've probably felt that "imposter syndrome" at some point. We feel that we are being pushed and expanded to grow outside of our "norm." Then comes the fear, the limiting beliefs, the “what if’s.”
Remember, fear is our survival instinct, because anything "new" can feel like a threat.
We begin to question ourselves…
Is my vision really worth all this?
Am I really capable of achieving it?
What if I fail?
What if it doesn’t work?
What happens next?
Whenever I’m confronted by these feelings, this is the question that I keep coming back to..."Is the fear that you’re feeling a VALID enough reason to NOT live the life you actually desire?"
Because we do have the CHOICE to feed...
Whenever we learn something new, complete a course, get a degree or certification, we feel proud of what we’ve accomplished. We feel like we’ve emerged as the “next level, better version” of ourselves and that’s truly a wonderful feeling right?
BUT, you know one thing that we should NEVER graduate from? It’s SELF DEVELOPMENT.
Excelling in life is usually geared towards academic, financial, business success. But personal development and self-improvement are equally important in our lives, to our happiness, overall fulfillment, and our ability to positively impact those around us. This should start by discovering who we are, who we want to be, and then creating that version of yourself. **Think about how we spend time getting to know other people, we really should do the same for ourselves!
The journey of self-growth, by the truth of what it is, is never-ending. It’s something that continues to evolve with us as we grow...
During my interview with Jo Dodds in her @powertolivemore podcast, she asked me my TIPS to people who don’t do video yet. We’ve gotta start somewhere right? So if you haven’t started yet or if you’re feeling stuck, read on...
1 Start by practicing PRIVATE VLOGGING. Pull up your phone and just in selfie mode, record yourself . Think of at least a couple of questions you’d like to ask yourself. Then speak out the answer to those 2 questions. The best way to start is by asking “why do you do what you do?” because this will get you talking about what you're passionate about and why.
What you want is to start practicing pulling out those different passions and the way you talk about things when you’re really excited about them.
2 I always tell my clients to “watch your tone” or TONALITY PRACTICE as I call it. Watch back your recording and try to also FEEL...
