The window to your marriage you’d opened and they know. It was your messy soul they inhabited briefly, experienced from the inside out and they blushed a little.

We all know you can use video for marketing your business but have you ever thought of it as a productivity tool? I hate being on camera so, so much. I have been doing my best to quietly avoid being filmed or having my picture taken for most of my adult life. Over the last couple of weeks however, I have become reluctantly convinced that one day we might live in a world where we all record videos as quickly and naturally as we send an email.
This revelation hit me while I was training a new team member for one of my clients. The other person is in a different hemisphere so teaching face to face obviously wasn’t feasible and neither was being on hand to support and answer questions during their working day.
