We all have felt that drop in our stomachs or that queasiness in our stomachs when we are about to start recording a video or go live. How do you deal with that and is the fear of being on camera holding you back?
This week we dive into some of the fears creators and entrepreneurs experience that keeps them from posting more video content or even getting started at all!
In this week's episode, we kick this off VERY DIFFERENTLY than what you're used to if you're a regular listener here. Instead of bringing my microphone that I know would be miles better, I chose to use the microphone on my phone for today's show.
We all have standards for what is acceptable and what's not when it comes to our video content but what if it comes down to just doing a down and dirty setup vs your very best setup? Would you wait until you're in "your best" or just do it?
Is a lack of gear holding you back from creating the content you envision or is it just a preference holding you back?
I don't say this as often and as loud as I should but this episode will expose one of the main reasons why people drop off their videos and leave within the first few seconds vs sticking around longer to watch your videos!
If you've just purchased the Rodecaster Pro or currently adding to cart all the things you need to buy alongside your Rodecaster Pro, be sure the add the right memory card.
The last thing you want to do is get to a place where you're frustrated because you're ready to record your next podcast or interview and your memory card is showing little to no space available.
Here's a quick video if you prefer a visual example, or you can skip down to the recommended memory card to use.
The Rode has listed only specific brands to use with the Rodecaster Pro and they agree to only use Sandisk or Samsung MicroSD memory cards.
Some cards don't have what's needed to properly write to the card and sometimes can result in an error message.
It's not worth landing an important podcast interview, only to have your memory card become corrupt or not work...
It only takes a glance at your phone's notifications screen, emails, or the holy grail of time management, your calendar, to see just how busy we all are.
If you don't manage your time well, your content will suffer. Feeling like you have to rush and put "something out" vs being strategic in releasing planned content on purpose.
In this week's episode, I share with you how you can create content easier, especially when you're busy - which we all are these days!

Clubhouse, the audio-only, social media platform has created some serious waves in the content creation space, and my first thought is always how can I capture content and repurpose that content that I create for my business.
That introduces a concern regarding the Clubhouse rules for when recording is acceptable and when it's not.
BEWARE: Recording others or other speakers and their conversation without their permission is against Clubhouse app rules and their Community Guidelines and can result in being removed from the platform.
