Feeling uncomfortable on-camera can kinda feel like going to the dentist; like a painful chore that you know is good for you.
Yep, intellectually, you understand how videos can completely take your biz to the next level, but in your heart, you may be running for the hills.
Does it have to be this icky? My answer is a big ol’ “no”.
Keep in mind that the chances are, you won’t become an on-camera Jedi master overnight, but if you commit to pressing record and practicing, you absolutely will get better.
(You might even start enjoying it)
Today, I’d like to walk you through my Coffee Talk Technique.
This is allllll about bringing out a more conversational and relaxed vibe to your videos.
And yep, when you try this technique, keep in mind that it’s for practice purposes only. Not for public viewing.
So dare to change your on-camera mindset, even just a little bit today. Remember, Rome was not built in a day.
Be patient with yourself and take this baby step. Check out the video below to discovery how you can be more yourself on-camera:
Okay, make sure that you incorporate the four key points from the video as you try the Coffee Talk Technique. A quick reminder:
- Write cue questions – cover both the fun Qs and the “let’s get real” Qs.
- Have company.
- Create DIY questions, if you’re doing this solo.
- Acknowledge the wonky.
Give this a whirl!

You. Can. Do. It.
