Aside from how you speak,
you have to make sure you wear that glowing smile 🤗!

Show them that you are interested in what you are talking about so that people will be more engaged with the topic.

Wearing a smile will not only make you feel comfortable but also the viewers who will be watching. Who wouldn’t want to feel more handsome or beautiful right?

5. How to Stay Determined

YES, this is something that you should remember over and over. Practicing patience will help you feel more relaxed when filming. It’s okay to make mistakes because that’s part of the growth process.

No matter how low you get or sometimes your emotions get in the way, you can still manage to get back up after every fall. If you are on Youtube, Facebook or any other platform, being patient is one of the keys to a long term success.

How will you use these tools and ideas in your artistry? We’d love to hear from you.
