Do you say these things to yourself:

  • I hate being in front of the camera, but I know that to be successful online, I've got to learn how to do it!
  • When I press the record button on the camera, it's like my confidence instantly drains right out of me
  • Why doesn't my mouth and brain don't work properly when I'm in front of the camera - it's unbelievably frustrating!
  • I'm a professional teacher/presenter and I can't believe how difficult of a time I have recording a simple video
  • I'm tired of nonsense advice like: 'just be yourself', and 'think of the camera as your friend' - it doesn't work!
  • I'm tired of spending hours/days writing scripts for videos where I sound like I'm reading a book and look stiffer than a board on camera
  • How can I record high-quality videos quickly?
  • How do other people record great videos with so little effort - how can I be like them?!?
  • I want to create great videos - HELP!!!
