Today was my first full official day Educating & Mentoring at the Academy of Entrepreneurs.

It was great on many levels as I worked with a powerhouse group of entrepreneurs.

They were great on every level and an early (yet powerful) question that we covered was how to do videos for Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn.

This was my 60 second “Thought Leader” format where one gives a tip. Part of this discussion focused on getting the background right.

I find getting the background right is critical in that when we don’t, it’s really distracting and not high quality.

Be it there are rubbish bins, too much moment, an ugly kitchen or more; a poor background totally detracts from what you are doing.

I love:

–          No movement, so they focus on you.

–          A nice, beautiful background (dark is great).

–          Great visuals that make you look great.

At our event, the Academy of Entrepreneurs had their media wall and I loved it. The videos looked great!

My advice and thinking? When you do videos, get a great background. It may be a stream, the ocean, a city or even a white wall; find something that just works.

Love your work, thank you for the read and stay awesome friends!
