TIPS & OTHER INFO
Don't be nervous! I will edit out all of the uhm's, pauses, and unrelated content.
Turn your camera ON and bring a smile!
Again, we have to see YOU!
&& Show off those pearly whites! 😁
Be ready to SHARE!
The more you share, the more value you bring to the viewers, and future speakers.
Find a quiet place.
We all understand yappy dogs, and children running around... but try to find the quietest space in your home/office. :)
Find a well lit area... and hide your chonies.
WE HAVE TO SEE YOU, and your background so just be cognizant of that.
Read the below Questionnaire Outline, and be prepared.
Have good internet connection. Although it can happen with good connection. We try to mitigate the occurrence of lagging video.
This is a fun project, no need to be stiff! Be authentically YOU, and let your personality shine through.
WHAT I NEED FROM YOU
I need at least an hour of your time. Send me three time-slots within the next two weeks that you are free, and available to speak.
I need your undivided attention for that hour. We need to feed off of each others energy and fluidity. Please Zoom from either your laptop or desktop.
No, this doesn't have to be professionally done. I just need a photo for the cover art of your "profile" and YOUTUBE Video.
If there is any information you would like me to share. i.e. photos or videos. Please be prepared and send that info to me within the week of our interview.
