Did you know that one third of online activity is spent watching videos? And chances are you’ve heard numerous others stress the growing popularity of video marketing as well. But what if you’re either super camera shy, and not all that great at talking in front of a crowd of strangers? Do you need to be on video as well? Well…a lot depends on who you’re trying to reach.
So, if being on camera proves to be a necessary evil, and it terrifies you this episode is for you. In this episode, I talked to a visibility expert who works with the types of people you won’t see presenting at conferences or doing Ted Talks. However, they have something worthwhile to share, and want to reach a lot of people quickly. So, they hire Erin, this week’s guest to make sure they’re put themselves out there in a flattering way.
In this episode, two people who know what it’s like to feel awkward on camera: myself and my guest talk about how you can overcome your fear of being on camera.

What is People Behind The Business?
People Behind the Business is a "show for small businesses with small teams and huge ambitions". The point is to bring together small business owners worldwide to tell their stories about how/why they started their business, along with personal issues that impact how they do business. E.G: living with a mental or physical illness, hearing the word "no" a lot, and finding practical solutions to the challenges of establishing a loyal community of colleagues, customers + friends. My goal is to provide a forum where small business owners can learn from each other's mistakes & accomplishments.
