4 Tips for Not Freezing up so You Can Crush it on Live Video

We’ve talked a lot about the power of going live and streaming live video. When you get started, if you are freezing up, that is normal behavior. Sometimes when you press record and you’re excited to deliver a message, your mind may just sit down. Usually, this happens in the beginning stages of your “live broadcasting” journey.

4 Tips for Not Freezing up so You Can Crush it on Live Video

This way, if you lose your though because you’re interacting and you start to become unfocused, you can very quickly refer to your notes. I recommend only two-three items in your notes.
