  • Tip 2 is you gotta put it in the reps. The only way to get better is to practice. Keep pushing forward and getting up. 
  • The next piece of advice Jason shares is it's okay to start with recorded videos. Live videos can be more high pressure. If recorded videos still make you uneasy, start with recorded audio instead.
  • Rewatch pre-recorded videos and take note of your habits in order to improve upon them – you'll get better in time.
  • Tip 4 is to realize it's okay to mess up and start over. Sometimes, Jason actually leaves in small flubs because this makes him relatable and his content more organic.
  • The next thing you should consider is writing an outline for what you want to say. You don't have to follow it 100%; you can use it as a guideline.
  • Tip 6 is to consider using a teleprompter. Jason recommends the Nano Teleprompter application and the Padcaster Parrot Teleprompter which docks on your DSLR camera. This has made content production much easier for Jason.
