4 steps that made it feel safe to film videos

by | Sep 24, 2018 | Confidence, Courage, Personal Confessions, Podcasts

I don’t know about you, but for me, getting on camera to record videos felt terrifying for so long. Not speaking on stage though. I have given so many talks over the years through my job as a lawyer and as the past president of my local Junior League that I can grace a stage without too much terror.

In fact, here’s a photo of me taken last week at Carolin Soldo’s “From Passion to Profit” event in Hollywood when I spoke on stage to over 300 people.

It was one of the best presentations I have ever given, and everyone was so generous with their compliments afterwards… both about my talk and about my bell-sleeved baby blue dress!

But filming videos. That’s a different story.

Videos are PERMANENT. They are RECORDED. They LIVE ON and ON….

Recording videos can make you feel visible and vulnerable and unsure of yourself – at least that’s how I used to feel. (And, honestly, some days I still feel wobbly.)

But not filming videos can hold you back from sharing your message, from reaching more clients and from having the business and life that you want.

In the daily business of being an entrepreneur or small business owner, It’s easy to be terrified to send our first e-newsletter, share a new e-course, offer a new program, charge money for the first time, take the stage for a speaking gig, or even film videos.

It’s easy in those times to choose Fear instead of Love, and let it stop us from showing up in bigger ways of service to the world.

At least it was for me.

But I took 4 steps that helped me feel courageous and safe to film videos when it came to technology, styling, set design and working through my (BIG!) blocks.

I wanted to share them with you in case it can help you work through your Fear to step in front of the camera to fill videos too.
