No More Excuses! It’s Time To Make Videos. by Jill CelesteDear entrepreneur, it’s time to push past your excuses. It’s time to make videos for your marketing!

If you’re like a lot of entrepreneurs, you would rather get a root canal than make a video, but trust me, making a video is a lot less painful.

Our Egos love to create excuses for not doing videos – not the right equipment, uncomfortable with public speaking, and on and on.

Instead, keep reading this marketing strategy. I’ll explain why you should embrace video marketing and help you bust through your video-making excuses.

We’re in this together, okay? Let’s get to it.
