How To Be Comfortable On Camera

• Push past your fears and barriers. Love the creativity that videos allow you to have.
• If you're just uncomfortable in front of the camera, dig into that a little bit deeper and find out what your real fear is.  There's fear of being visible, there's fear of being vulnerable, there's fear of being judged.
• It doesn't necessarily mean your face needs to be on camera. As creators, there's a lot of fun and interesting things you do with your hands that people want to see.  Try overhead shots of your hands or a time-lapse video with a voiceover on it.
• Make videos even if it feels uncomfortable until you push past that breaking point. Just pick up your camera, look at it, and hit record.
• Find some natural light in your home and choose the time of day where you feel like you have the most energy. Feel free to make mistakes and learn from them.
• After recording, watch it all again, and be super-objective.Then share it with a trusted friend who will give you objective feedback.
• Write a full script, just a little outline, or some bullet points to keep you on target with what you want to say on videos .
• You will have moments where you stumble. You just need to pause before you start the sentence again.
• No one will ever be you. No one can ever do what you do the way that you do it.Don't be afraid to share because it is going to help attract your people to you.
• Thriller,  Filler, Spiller formula.  -- Pro Tip! Listen in for all the details on this.• Thriller is the first captivating thing you say to your viewer to keep them watching.
