I'm practicing that sentence to deal with my soon-to-grow legion of fans.
This week, I was interviewed on camera for the first time. The clip is about the length of a TED Talk. The program is Liquid Lunch with Hugh Reilly and Sandra Kyrzakos on ThatChannel.com. The show runs from noon to 2 PM on weekdays. You can watch live or on YouTube later.
First TimeI haven't been interviewed on camera before. The idea used to scare me. This time last year, I couldn't bear to see myself on camera.
All that changed because of Goodyear Toastmasters. I'm glad I finally joined. That's where I practiced and got the feedback I needed to improve. My confidence grew.
This week, I also did my 10th and final speech in the Competent Communicator manual — exactly 15 months after my first speech.
All Revved UpI was ready to get interviewed but where?
Hugh and I were panelist at Networking For Entrepreneurs and Freelancers last month. These quarterly events are hosted by fee-only financial consultant Neil Jain at Money Life Skills (website) and Paulina Lysy (LinkedIn profile) of Southern Exposure Renewable Energy.
Our topic was social media. As a blogger and podcaster, I'm a strong believer. Hugh took a contrary view, which lead to an excellent discussion. Afterwards, Hugh invited me on Liquid Lunch. Opportunity welcomes the prepared.
MoreI want to get better at video production. I've volunteered to help at Rogers Community TV. There's a one year commitment … and a long waiting list.
If we meet and you'd like an autograph, please be patient. And get back in line.
