The Authentic Video Paradox
It’s a real paradox – trying to be authentic on video. If you’re being authentic, you shouldn’t have to try, right? But so many of the female entrepreneurs I meet struggle with this very thing in video marketing. 🤯
If you feel like this, you’re not alone. It IS a challenge to be authentic on video especially when society and everything you’ve been taught says you should be striving to be the best. 📣
But, when you’re trying to fit into someone else’s idea of what or who you should be, it’s pretty hard to be yourself. You find yourself asking questions like, should I wear makeup in my videos? How much makeup should I wear in my videos? Do I have to dance in TikTok videos if I want to be successful? How can I stop being so awkward in my videos? What if I hate watching myself on video? 🤔
😲 [these are real questions I’ve been asked by entrepreneurs who are NOT doing video because it feels so inauthentic to them]
In this video, I share some insights into what it really means to be your authentic self, what to take into consideration when creating videos and putting yourself out there authentically, and my #1 tip for tapping into your authenticity in your videos – that’s right at the end! 🤚
🎯Here are a few things to consider when it comes to showing up authentically as yourself.
- There is not just one authentic you.
- Know your authentic self as it is reflected in your personal brand.
- If it feels icky, it’s probably not authentic.
- Be present, don’t present.
- Park the perfection, nobody needs or wants you to be perfect.
