Being confident on camera doesn’t come naturally to most of us. Hitting that go live button can be terrifying and it is one of the biggest obstacles that holds us back.
I know this from personal experience. When I started with live video, the ole fear monster was alive and well in my head. What if things aren’t perfect? What if I messed up? Yep, I even had a fear of being judged. Trust me, I have been there. I can tell you this…it gets easier and the only way through is to jump in.
Easier said than done sometimes, which is why I am excited to have special guest, Stephanie Liu…and we are going to talk about how to overcome fear to become totally irresistible on camera.
