REALLY! I didn’t know that the word “really” was such a fundamental part of my descriptive vocabulary until I started recording videos. Oh, my goodness the humor in this is too funny! Me, a person who speaks for a living. I have worked on my “like” and “um” issues. I’ve coached others to get over it, but here I am fessing up to discovering that I say “really” A LOT!
Have you ever recorded yourself when you are sharing something off the cuff, or while you are trying to figure out what to say as you go? Yes, hello, it’s me the “WING IT GIRL.” It happens. I know. I think “I’ve got this.” and then fall flat on my face.
Why is it that I can coach other people to prep for their commercials, help them with their messaging, create scripts and bullet points to help them stay on track but somehow, didn’t think to do it for myself? They (whoever they are) do say, “Experience is a great teacher.”
Preparation is key. You’ve got to know what you are going to say before you say it in front of the camera if you want to appear professional. Recording your commercial does take some planning and preparation, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Just a few bullet points and the very next video was much better, “really!” (I had to throw that in there.)
It doesn’t have to be difficult to get in front of the camera, it can be quite fun once you try it a few times. Think of it as a way to connect with a broader audience, with more people. An opportunity to draw them in, help them learn a little more about you so they begin to develop that know, like, and trust that relationships are built on.
Trust me, I am better at teaching than I am at doing (yes, that is supposed to be funny.) What I learn I apply to helping my clients and therefore I am sharing this with you. I want you to know you are not alone. I want you to know, you don’t have to struggle when delivering a powerful message that connects.
