New book, new city, new video, new post!
This time I was listening to an audiobook by Daymond John, The Power of broke. I liked the book, and I had no problem finding 5 takeaways, and I am looking forward to integrating them into my business. If you are a fan of Shark Tank like me, Daymond John doesn’t need an intro. If you are not, then suffice it to say Daymond John is the founder of Fubu a billion dollar clothing company, investor to dozens of startups and an advisor to US president Obama.
As for the recording of this video, I was able to make some progress by buying a cable extension for my microphone, so finally the microphone is under the shirt, not flying around (finally!)! Since my first video I couldn’t have imagined standing on a square with so many people and recording a video, but I am getting more and more comfortable in front of the camera (while people are walking by). This helps with the recording, takes less time and I am able to say what I actually intend to say. Also I am seeing progress with not reading so much of the screen. Earlier I was using my iPad as a clutch for reading, now my old iPhone does the trick.
I also changed the YouTube thumbnail just a little bit. For this video (and perhaps future videos as well) I’ve decided to start with the title and put my company’s logo at the bottom with a “sponsored by” tagline instead of just a dash. Here’s the video!
After a short break on my YouTube channel due to 2 books that didn’t meet my standards, and since I stopped reading after 40-50 pages, I was able to pick up the pace with Grant Cardone’s The 10X Rule!
Again, in my humble opinion, I was able to improve my video. This time by shooting with the new iPhone (what an improvement from my old iPhone). I also dropped my WhoAPI pitch that was first at the begining of the video, and then later at the end of the video. It just doesn’t add value to the video, but it makes it much longer. I’ll try to deal with this in the future, but for now I’ve decided to proceed without the hard pitch inside these short videos.
I already have some improvements planned for my next one, but let’s first enjoy this one.
