Kiss & Tell: Kiss Your Excuses Goodbye and Cozy Up to a Life You Love!

Do you know what Perfection- Infection is? I describe it as 'delaying to put your idea, product or service out because in your mind it's s not 'perfect' yet'!
This month my family is celebrating my First Year + One Month Anniversary on Motherpreneur TV, my first journey into the big and scary cyber world called You Tube.
Talk about being scarred, embarrassed and 'not perfect'enough before shooting my first episode. My poor husband had to man the camera for over an hour until I was happy with my first shot, a 5 minute clip (Thank God, my editing skills have vastly improved this then).
If you watch my first videos and compare them with today’s episode, wow, there is a huge difference! Everything is so much better today; the pauses, the lightning, my face (not too shiny anymore), my clothes etc. Am I embarrassed about the beginning? Nope, not really! Instead, I am proud of myself!
You Tube can be one scary, intimidating place – if you compare yourself to the top You Tubers with millions of followers. What attracts huge followings? Music, Sex, Fashion and playing Minecraft video games. Oh help, Motherpreneur TV doesn't fall into any of these categories.
The only options available for me were to make due with what I have or forget about the whole video producing concept! Well, how could I let a dream of mine die? I owe it to myself to start a journey I dreamed about since I was a girl: to host my own entertainment show on TV! So I took a deep breath in (and out), looked at my resources (mother of three, book author, serial expat, world traveller, successful ex-coffee shop owner, happily married forever, fun personality), equipment available (a Canon video camera and professional lights from Cowboy Studio)and started my journey! And, the motivation behind all this? I am not getting any younger! How much older do I need to become to finally have the guts to 'just do it'?
Regardless of what you are about to start or what platform you are going to use to express yourself with- you will be surrounded by more experienced, more talented, richer, taller, more successful, better connected, more flexible individuals. Right? Right!
We all know someday isn't a real day, perfection is only a word and action speaks louder than words. Here are a few more reasons why you should start whatever it is you want to start. In other words, Why Done is Better than Perfect:
So, what are you waiting for? If “Done is Better than Perfect”is good enough for Sheryl Sandberg at Facebook, it sure is good enough for us!
