      • I have a business called Crushing It On Camera where I teach entrepreneurs how to be awesome on camera.

[05:10] – How did you split your time between being an actress, an author, and your business?

      • Even if your career is going really well there’s typically a need to have some other income involved.
      • It gave me an amazing opportunity to start my business, I’m really passionate about it because I’m able to do what I love

[07:21] – How did you work with the things you planned and then suddenly you get a call for a casting and then everything is different?

      • It’s challenging when it comes up because I just have to totally shift gears and then commit to what’s right in front of me.
      • It was important not to actually block out every hour of the day because it would be like, too hard to like move things around.

[10:57] – During our work, what did we figure out about health issues and how were we able to integrate them as well?

      • Health stuff is crazy because sometimes it happens and you can’t see it coming and then sometimes it just like, snap your fingers and it’s there and you were not expecting in.

[23:14] – How do you show up yourself on camera when you actually don’t feel like you’re 100%?

      • The motivation that I need is like focusing on the value that I’m going to give or the impact that I’m going to have like trying to take the focus off of myself and how I’m feeling and on, the purpose of what I’m doing, that helps motivate me more.

[27:48] – Should you actually show up at all if you really don’t feel like it or should you look back on what actually happened and show up afterward?

      • I do think we have to put our self-care first. And sometimes that means we need to have the internet off and our phones away, and we just need time for ourselves to heal.  

[34:36] – So tell me about your program, Crushing It On Camera, what is the essence of entrepreneurs and business owners usually go wrong?

      • People just don’t prepare that they want it to come across like they’re doing it on the fly and it’s natural and conversational, but then they don’t even do any preparation.

[47:28] – What does efficiency mean to you?

      • The smartest way to get to where you need to go

[48:14] – What are your top three things that have gotten you from where you started to where you are now that you wouldn’t want to miss for the ongoing journey?’
