Using Video to Connect with Your Audience

When was the last time that you showed up on video? Are you comfortable with being on video or is it a medium that you tend to avoid? Why might all of us want to create a video? These are some of the questions that I explore with Rachel Tapscott in this episode.

Rachel helps business owners share their story through video. She began her career in media as original news camera operator, then moved into corporate video production, which led her to start her own video production company That Camera Girl. She noticed the same patterns and limiting beliefs present with dozens of different clients around the idea of putting themselves out on video, and she experienced the same fear and internal battle at the idea of appearing on video herself. Rachel’s purpose and the focus of her business has shifted from simply creating videos to helping people with their confidence on camera and their belief in themselves.

Build Support to Find and Align Your Life with Your Purpose

Brandon is a Midwesterner, best-selling author, impact entrepreneur and an expert in social learning and culture change. Prior to founding Unity Lab, he worked at two leading social learning companies, ion and Imperative, to activate empathy, trust, belonging, purpose and leadership at scale. 

Brandon trusted as a keynote speaker, consultant and program leader by organizations such as Google, Johnson & Johnson, Stanford University, JDRF, Morgan Stanley, U.S. Marine Corps, University of California – Berkeley, LinkedIn, the U.S. Navy, Slalom Consulting, the U.S. Coast Guard, and the University of Minnesota. He has written / co-written four books on purpose and leadership and his work has been featured by news organizations such as USA Today, U.S. News & World Report, and Forbes.

In particular, his current purpose is to shepherd a community of purpose practitioners, the Global Purpose Leaders, and to work on healing the soul of the United States with Unity Lab.

Whatever your religious tradition, or even if you don’t practice any religious tradition at all, the opportunity, the possibility to live aligned with purpose is available to you.

Kindly leave us a review so other people can find the podcast.

Today, I’m speaking with Cindy Sharp. Cindy describes herself as a continuous work in progress. She loves to learn and surrounds herself with new ideas, skills, and ways of thinking that she can apply to her life to become the best version of herself and to share this information with others. She wants the freedom to design her own life and she believes that women should lift each other up and support each other to become our best authentic selves while embracing where we are on our journey. With this in mind, she created B-sharp as a platform to share the best content and ideas that she has curated all in support of women, breaking the mold, becoming their authentic selves and taking control in order to design a life that they love.

She believes that to do this, we need to invest in five life pillars: purpose, health and wellness, career, business and finance, relationships and contribution. Using the B-sharp platform, she shares information and resources related to each of these pillars so that together step-by-step, we can make small incremental changes that compound to create an intentional life that breaks away from the day-to-day hamster wheel and forced expectations to design our own lives.

Additionally, she’s a Canadian woman currently living abroad in Berlin, Germany as an ex-pat, working as a business executive for a large global company. She’s the mother of two amazing boys, an avid book reader, traveler, content guzzler, and fitness enthusiast. She’s always looking for ways to find balance and create time, not find it, create it.

She would love to connect to women who are also looking to find their purpose and add value, to consistently learn and grow and to design a life that they love. You can find her on her blog and on socials using the links that will be in the show notes. In particular, her blog is b-sharp.co. Listen to this episode for a whole lot of resources and suggestions of a process to help you live life on purpose, with intention.
