Hey guys! So years ago when I first got started with this website, I experienced unexpected spontaneous success. I had networks calling me, asking me to come on their shows to do fitness fashion segments. I was completely unprepared to appear on these shows. One of my 1st on-air moments was the Today Show. While I was proud of myself in the moment, I can't help but cringe every time I watch the clip. I did not have the skillset to appear on-air, had no idea what the hell I was doing, and could have potentially killed my career.
Luckily, I had a wonderful publicist who helped guide me towards media training and hosting training. But let's just say I learned through trial and error with the Today Show. My mistakes on-air made me want to be better, eventually leading me into a career a TV and digital host!
The story is a little bit longer than what I've just shared but the point is that if you envision yourself speaking online or on TV, you really should learn the basics. It's not always as easy as it seems. My agent, Mark Turner, and my friend and fellow host, Leila Sbitani, are teaching an amazing class on December 3rd that will help you break into this world and feel confident on-camera.
Watch the video above, go to their hosting class website, sign up and feel free to hit me up with any questions about your journey. Or, leave your comments/questions below and I will make sure to answer them.
And just in case you're curious about that Today Show segment I did years ago (where I big time sucked), enjoy watching it HERE or below! (I'll be the one cringing.) As you can see, I've come a long way. Don't let bad on-camera moments happen to you!
xoxo, Bianca Jade
