Breaking The Norm - with Akira Armstrong
How often are you trying to fit in as you navigate through the business world?
Are adopting business jargon? Are wearing the clothes (a.k.a. uniform) that matches your profession?
Highlighting only those past experiences that make you seem more professional?
Just so you’ll fit in?
In the attempt to succeed we often try to hide parts of who we really are.
But, what would happen if you did the opposite?
How can you highlight your differences & make them your biggest advantage?
I’m sharing the story of Akira Armstrong, who’s an extremely talented dancer and choreographer, but didn’t have the typical body type for the dance world.
So, instead of trying to fit into a mold she featured who she is and founded “The Pretty Big Movement” that’s breaking stereotypes.
Making money from your live videos - with PJ Taei
With the rise of social media and proliferation of smartphones, video content has become a staple in the digital age.
According to global research company eMarketer, 60% of internet users watch videos every day. So, if you're a video content creator and you want to grow your business using video, how can you monetize all those videos that you're posting?

What Makes Great Content For Live Video?
If you're posting content on social media then you know that:
#1. There's a lot of mediocre content out there and
#2. It's super hard to stand out from all the noise.
So, what can you do to ensure that the right people will notice all the work you're doing and the important message you're sharing?
First of all, you need a strategy for creating your content that's streamlined so that it doesn't take you a lot of time - so you don't get burned out and just plain give up.
My method of choice: Go Live Regularly - for the biggest reach in the least amount of effort.
So now, since we're talking video, you need a method - a framework and process - that will capture people's attention so they'll start watching and keep them watching until the end.
That framework and process I call Livestream Leverage. This is a 3-part framework which includes Mythbusting and Telling Stories That Sell.

Make Engaging Videos With Eye Hacking - with Paul Martin
What is Eye Hacking and what does it have to do with making super engaging videos?
A few weeks ago I posted this question: "What topic could you talk about passionately for 18 minutes without preparing?"
Among the many comments, I got a two-word response from videographer, Paul Martin, "Eye hacking."
I had to know.
What the heck is eye hacking? And that's why, for this week's episode of The Live Stream Show, I've invited Paul on to tell us.
Paul says, "I've been studying visual perception and gestalt psychology to make videos more engaging and effective for brands. It's what directors like David Fincher and cinematographers like Villenueve have been doing in movies for the past 10 years."
Sound super cool? 😎
In this episode we're uncovering the secrets of the masters to make your videos more engaging.
