Hey Dhananjay,

I know making videos can feel intimidating, but I’m here to tell you that the excuses that have been holding you back are really nothing more than misconceptions.

Let’s shed some light on a few things so we can get your brave and brilliant self on camera once and for all.

These are the top 3 excuses people give me for why they haven’t started making video yet.

1. I don’t like what I look like on camera.

I’ve never met ANYONE that loved watching themselves on camera (and I used to be a Hollywood actress!), but no one, and I mean, NO ONE, is paying attention to every little thing that makes you cringe. Lines on your face, a stain on your shirt, or the way you crinkle your nose when you speak—nope! Nobody notices.

Here’s the truth:

When you’re checking out a YouTube video or scrolling through Instagram reels, are you staring at each tiny detail on their face and body? I didn’t think so! You’re taking in their energy, the vibe, the message, and the environment they’re in. You’re absorbing the whole picture and that’s exactly what other people will do when they watch YOUR videos!

2. I don’t have the right equipment.

Almost everybody has a professional film studio in the palm of their hand. Yep. I’m talking about your cell phone, my friend. With today’s technology, you can pretty much record high-quality audio and video with a few simple clicks. No need to max out a credit card with fancy filming stuff.

Here’s the truth:

I know you want your videos to look good, and they will if you know how to use what you have, wisely. With the right set-up, a few simple audio tricks, and the right lighting you’ll be amazed by what you can achieve.

3. I don’t have an audience.

I get it–why even bother learning how to be awesome on camera if you don’t have anyone ready and willing to watch? I mean, how long will it actually take to achieve YouTube domination or produce the next viral video? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, shall we? If you don’t have an audience yet, this is the perfect time to dive in and learn!

Here’s the truth:

When you are starting off, there’s no pressure. You get to play and explore, try some things out, adjust, polish, and discover what you love. Being a newbie is actually the BEST time to build new muscles of confidence without worrying about what others might say. Your audience is there, they just haven’t met you yet! Now is the perfect time to make an incredible first impression.

Have these excuses been holding you back, too? If so, no judgment here—you’re not alone!

You got this!
