by | Mar 29, 2019 | Uncategorized | 0 comments


Welcome to an exciting journey of self-discovery and improved camera presence! In the debut episode of the “BetterOn Guide Notes Vlog,” we’ll dive into feedback given to a fellow participant, Aaron, who, like you, is navigating the world of camera communication. Get ready to unlock the secrets of genuine connection through asynchronous videos and empower yourself to shine in any virtual setting.

1. Your Power to Connect: Picture this – someone addressing you directly by name, acknowledging your presence through a camera. The BetterOn approach revolves around harnessing this personal touch to create authentic connections. As you read, imagine the impact of this connection – how it combats the digital disconnect we often experience.

2. Beyond Talking, Embrace Connecting: Yes, you can speak to a camera, but there’s an art to connecting through it. Just like Aaron, you possess the ability to master both aspects, but BetterOn’s focus is on the latter. You’re about to grasp the magic of establishing connections that resonate deeply with your audience. Let’s embark on this journey together.

3. Reflect, Improve, Repeat: Think about this: a cycle of recording, reflecting, and repeating – a self-observation practice that goes beyond surface-level analysis. Imagine watching yourself objectively, just like you do with mindfulness exercises. This practice isn’t just about camera presence; it’s about connecting with yourself on a profound level.

4. Bridging the Digital Gap: Virtual communication can be challenging, especially when you’re limited to a camera’s lens. Imagine being in two different “worlds” of video communication – pre-recorded videos versus live interactions. BetterOn recognizes this distinction and equips you to thrive in both scenarios.

5. Cultivate Your Unique Style: As you read, think about your communication style. Like Aaron, you have strengths waiting to be amplified. Pause for a moment – silence can be powerful. Imagine owning your unique style and using pauses to engage your audience authentically.

6. Embrace the Moments: Moments matter. Reflect on instances where you’ve felt most connected and authentic. Now imagine acknowledging that not every moment is ideal for peak performance – that’s okay. The journey to authentic presence involves understanding and embracing these moments, setting you up for sustained improvement.

7. Your Next Steps: Imagine the excitement of your journey evolving. As Aaron progresses to object work, envision yourself embracing this step too. Your camera presence is a toolkit, and every skill you add enhances your virtual prowess.

Conclusion: Congratulations – you’re now equipped with insights to transform your camera presence. As you continue reading the BetterOn Guide Notes Vlog series, remember that these lessons are tailor-made for your growth. Embrace the power to connect, practice self-observation, and cultivate your unique style. Let’s create a virtual presence that resonates, setting the stage for meaningful connections in every virtual interaction. Your journey starts now.
