For the past four weekends, I have had the honour of speaking at three events and attending a fourth. All four events had similar themes of helping women entrepreneurs move forward in their businesses, with most of the talks focusing on some aspect of the mindset for success.
All of the speakers have been excellent - the talks inspiring and the advice excellent.
I am so grateful for the comments about how the attendees enjoyed my presentation, yet I hear over and over again, that “should’ word - “Yes I should try video”, not “I will use video”.
When I offer a chance to create a video, there and then, with my iPhone ready to go, I hear “No, not now, my hair’s a mess!” or “No, I’m not ready to do video”.
At one event, I worked around this resistance by asking several women to record a video testimonial about the event, which worked well, because I was asking them to talk about the event and not about themselves.
None of the women had ever been on video before - all were anxious and nervous, expressing doubts about their ability to speak on camera, but kudos to them, they stepped up to the plate - well, to my iPhone and delivered their testimonial for the event.
Immediately after the recording, I invited them to view their video and again, kudos to them they all agreed. I knew what would happen next. As I played back the video, every face relaxed, anxiety morphed into a big grin and I heard “Hey, I look pretty professional” or “Wow, I sound great”.
“You are” I confirmed and then asked - “Will you use video again to take your message to a wider audience?” I had a couple of “Yeses” but mostly “maybe’s” but I sent them all their videos as encouragement.
Here comes my rant! At every event I have attended I see two things -
1. Wonderful wisdom imparted by wise women from the stage - from one to a few.
2. Gifted and giving women hesitant or unwilling to take the small step into wider world, using the most powerful tool we have - video.
So much wisdom.
So much talent.
