By now you must know that it is no longer optional to use video, it’s something that you have to do if you want to compete in 2019. Video is an integral part of getting attention and educating your audience.

You won’t connect with everyone, but the beauty is that you don’t need to. There folks out there in your market, looking for your services who you will connect with, and they will be drawn to you because you are you. Not because you’re short or tall or fat or thin, or black or white or anything else.
Just be you and that will be good enough.
