Welcome to BS’ing with Brandi where my mission is to help you
#GetShitDone. I’m your host Brandi Good and today we’re going to
talk about one of the biggest reasons you’re not doing video for
your business. One of the big reasons is tech confusion and
frustration, but I talk and write about that all of the time.
Today’s episode is tackling something a bit more personal, a bit
more uncomfortable: fear. Specifically fear of criticism.

“uhhs”. Whether you sign up for Toastmasters or get a speaking
coach or just start practicing speaking on video in your car the
key is to speak with confidence – if you’re hesitant or unsure,
all of those vocal habits and tics will stand out.
I hate my _______: for me it was my voice. That
is a very common one. For many other people it has to do with
weight – even crazy successful people like Amy Porterfield avoided
putting her face on camera for a long time because she wasn’t
comfortable with her weight. If you are doing things to try to hide

self? Or am I just being lazy? Am I giving a bad impression or am I
