Are you camera shy? You know, the type of person who’s afraid of their own reflection in a mirror or on social media—but not because it’s creepy but because you think you will never look good enough or that you might make a mistake and people will laugh at you.
The internet has been a huge game-changer for our lives. But with all the new and exciting things that come with technology, it’s easy to forget that there’s still some stuff out there that we don’t have—like the ability to actually see ourselves without having to look at our screens. Whatever happens, it’s always best to remember that your tribe will love your imperfections.
In this episode, Daniel sits with video visibility coach, Sri Mahabir to discuss how we can overcome camera shyness and our insecurities. They also discuss how powerful a simple live can be, why be persistent in our goal, why our story matters, where entrepreneurs fail, what content to create, what self-investment can do for us, and what Sri can say about giving up.
