It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since I started a project I thought would fail.

How it started:

Tweets. Of course.

And then she sent it to Ted Rubin who retweeted it.

A year and 45 videos later:

What I’ve learned a year into the Guru Minute video series.

1. If you don’t try, you’ll fail.

2. You don’t need the best equipment but a tripod helps.

3. The first take is best.

4. Natural light can work for you but early morning/late evening is best.

5. Look into the camera.

6. Use the passion in your voice — inflection matters.

7. A tag line is good a jingle is better.

8. If someone is learning, you’re doing a good job.

9. Makeup is your friend.

10. I am thankful to Jen who started me on this course and my pals who encourage me to continue, especially Carol.

    This: “1. If you don’t try, you’ll fail.”

    And this is very far from a fail, my friend. Thank you for being so positive. I always learn from you.

        And your passion always comes through, too. 😀

        You’re welcome!
