DESCRIPTION

Learn my tried and true process for shooting like a pro each and every time

You’ve laid out your course modules and lessons. You’ve written your scripts. You’ve listened to your pump-up song on full blast, and you’re ready to record your course videos. There’s only one minor problem -- you have absolutely no idea where to start, and what to do.

Good news, my sweet friend. I’m going to tell you exactly what I do to create high-quality videos that look professional and don’t break the bank. 

My process for recording my course videos runs like a well-oiled machine. I don’t say that to brag, friend – believe me, it’s taken a lot of trial and error over the years to nail it down. And thanks to the many learning lessons I’ve had along the way, I now have a tried and true process for hitting the record button like a pro.

I am so excited to share this process with you because I know it is going to save you a ton of time, and also a ton of money. Tune in to hear my tricks of the trade, including: 

  • The system I use to plan and organize my time and assets
  • How to select your outfits and shoot location
  • Where to find an inexpensive videographer and editor 
  • The tools I swear by to record my course videos

After you listen to this episode, you’ll be shooting your course videos like a pro -- and I for one, can’t wait to see them.
