In this video, The Ambitious Life creator and Entrepreneur Network partner Greg Rollett discusses how to get over fears of being on-camera when making short-form videos.

Rollett explains how to make videos that are less about you and more about making content for your market. 

The video host points out that if you care about your audience, you're less likely to get caught up in the small superficial details in your video. If one hair is out of place in your video, you can remember the importance of your content to stay confident on-camera. 

Get comfortable with the thought that you will always be you. Regardless of your outfit or waistline, you will always have your personality and message. Bring everything back to why you're making the video in the first place.
