Day 1 Video Challenge

I am working on a video for my website.  People don't want to read stuff much anymore, they want to hear it.  See it.  Know you.  So I invested into a project for my business to make this happen.  Well, I had my first video shoot last October.  We have done 3 sessions.  I lock up when I get in front of the camera.  I get nervous.  I freeze.  I feel like its all staged.  I don't feel natural.  So I have been working on practicing phrases in front of the mirror.  Reciting my script.  Trying to be natural and be me.  It has been hard.  I am going to be resuming this project here in a few weeks with my videographer and in preparation for this, I felt it was best that I face my fears head on.  I felt that the only way I am going to get better at this is to launch in and force it to happen. I felt the only way to make me better on camera was to do self videos and put them on Facebook.  You know I HATE selfies.  So to do this in a video format only magnifies my hate.  In fact it does more than that, it freakin scares me.  I wanna puke.  It makes me face the comments of people, which also terrifies me.  It makes me face the fact that I am pretty and you know it.  Darn.  Won't you ignore that please?

In January I did a 30 Day 500 Words Challenge with Jeff Goins to move me further into my book writing.  I decided I needed to make that same challenge to myself for a video.  Not just do one or two or three, but do 30 of them.  One every day.  Ugh.  I hope you won't hate me for this, but I am determined to move past my fears.

So here is the link to my 0.18 second video in which I tell you that you have many things on your plate and that as you begin your Monday, I want you to know that I love you and I want you to have an awesome one.  You can listen to it here.


  1. Ok, so I looked at the video. You did great and you look like Sarah Palin! You may or may not like that but I think that's a good thing. I hope you have a nice day too!

    1. Lana, I have never been told I look like her, but I think I see what you see! Interesting...thanks for commenting, listening and keeping up. I pray that you are well and facing your own fears. Love You!
