Learning Facebook Live

New technology is always a bit daunting.  As much as I'm willing to experiment with a new paint product, glue or power tool, it's just not that easy for me to press a button on my computer when I have absolutely no idea what is going to happen.  A few weeks back I overcame my fear and hit LIVE VIDEO on my Facebook page and, though I was a bit nervous and apprehensive, I managed to get through my first FB Live experience.  Not the easiest format to get used to, but I really enjoy getting to talk to all of you and have a real interaction.  The bonus is that you get to meet Julie, my amazing assistant who is the right hand in the Make Your Mark operation!  Here we are talking about the ins and outs of life at Make Your Mark.
1st attempt:  Biggest suggestion is to have something to talk about!  Otherwise you're just sitting there looking like a doofus!
2nd week:  Maybe having a time limit is a good idea!  I'll admit it, I got a little carried away and kept yakking way too long.
Getting the hang of it:  Work out the kinks and loved having my sidekick there to chime in.  Two is always better than one.
My most recent:  A bit more relaxed and prepared.
Join us (for now) at 12 p.m. PST most Fridays
or look for the recorded version to watch at your leisure
