Episode 039: Using Visual Storytelling to Make Your Personal Brand Pop


I know video can seem super intimidating and can feel like it’s only for people with decades of experience or flashy YouTube stars who must have been born with these skills. But before you immediately close this window thinking video isn’t for you, I urge you to hear me out.


Or, more specifically, I urge you hear out Paige Wilhide, founder of video content agency Paige Media and our guest for this episode. Time and time again Paige has watched and supported video newbies in becoming the stars of their own stories, and she has some thoughts for anyone who’s skeptical about video that she shares with us in Episode 39: Using Visual Storytelling to Make Your Personal Brand Pop.


In our conversation, we dig into:

  • Why video is so important and who should be using it
  • How to not let a desire for perfection—or that pimple on your face—hold you back
  • Tactical tips on what you really need to make your first videos
  • Small ways of dipping your toe in the water when it comes to video
  • Inspiring stories of how people have used video to create the lives of their dreams!


Whether you’re an entrepreneur trying to get your business out there more, a job seeker who wants to elevate your applications, or just someone with a passion you want to share with others, video can be such a powerful medium—and you really can get started with equipment you probably already have. Plus, Paige has created a FREE video prep checklist to help guide you through the process. Download it here!
