When it comes to making videos, a lot of people are held back because they think they have to create a lot of new content all the time. You might spend all their time thinking about what to create and how to create it and you end up not producing many videos.
Don’t do this.
Instead, the way to start is to document your journey. Show us your process. Take us behind the scenes of what you do for work and in your daily life.
This is perfect for live video and easy to do. Whenever you find yourself in the middle of something, or stuck on a problem, or in a moment of inspiration – go live and document your journey.
If you want to be respected and known for what you do – then start showing up – by showing what you do! Don’t get stalled by thinking it has to be perfect, or scripted, or a finished product.
Live video is a perfect vehicle because it can’t be perfect. It let’s you off the hook and gives you permission to show up as who you are. People who want to create content make a big mistake: they care about the camera, and the lighting, and how they look…
Yes, you can do simple things just using your smartphone to make your video look professional and beautiful (and I can show you how) but don’t let that keep you from going live – and showing up.
Live video helps you be transparent. I mean, really, you don’t need to know all the answers. So, it can be much more effective to show your process of going through your work – facing your challenges – and growing your business – than coming up with the advice that you think you need to give people.
Think about how to document more than thinking about creating. The key is to talk to people around you and get their stories and reactions. The other key is to start!
I’d love to have you make a short video like the one above – showing part of your morning commute. Show us who you are and post it in my FREE Livestream Rockstars Facebook Group
