OVERCOMING THE FEAR OF GOING LIVE
I once heard that fear can be defined as ‘false evidence appearing real’. I particularly love this quote by Rachel Huber, “Fear is the brain’s way of saying there is something important for you to overcome.” That for me is powerful because we hear so many stories of people who have allowed fear to hold them back from moving to the next level. Fear has held them back from making that proposal, from going on that trip, from having that baby. Fear has held so many people back from things that would have propelled them to the next level.
My question for you today is, Are you one of them? Are you sitting on the sidelines and allowing the fear of what might happen when you go live to hold you back? This might be the fear of you running out of what to say; fear of people not showing up; fear of people not liking you; fear of your phone falling off (I’ve had this experience before, and I just picked up my phone and …

I met a friend on periscope- Simone Johnson, and she talked about the power of one, now I’m big on unity, big on doing things with people, so I struggled initially with the power of one.
I was trying to understand what she meant by the power of one and then I realized what she was referring to…all it takes, is one person, one connection, one event, one conversation, one meeting, one conference for a miracle to happen.
A couple of days ago, I had a conversation with a woman at my dance class and what did I say to her? I said, “could you please take me a picture”? After taking the pictures, I did a few dance moves, so she made a video of my moves at the dance class, and the conversation went further.
I found out from our conversation that she is a singer, and she gave me a complimentary CD album to listen to. I was blown away with her voice and as soon as I got home, I did a Facebook live video, and someone contacted me …

Live streaming is one of the new ways; we now do business online. A tool to gain and boost your visibility and increase your sphere of influence. We talk about the World being a global village, about being one click away but yet some of us are comfortable with our businesses, ideas, services and even the cause we are so passionate about, restricted to our local environment.
It’s going to get better-
I wish I knew this before I started streaming live. Live streaming is one of the most exciting journeys that you could ever embark on. It is one way to quickly establish the know, like and trust factor. All you need to get started is a smartphone, internet connection and the right attitude. A desire for you to be at a different level from when you started. It’s just not enough to get on live streaming platforms, you must have a strong desire to succeed.
Because I dared to go live, it has given a lot of people permission to start their live streaming journeys. The most important thing you can …

In October 2016, I met the Danish ambassador to Nigeria-His Excellency, Ambassador Torben Gettermann at an event- “She forum Africa”, where I was speaking on the power of authentic stories as I shared my live streaming journey- one of the many platforms I was privileged to speak on, in 2016.
A year earlier, I was going to pay to attend that same event but with the success story of my live streaming journey, I was invited to be a part of a Panel session on Personal Development.
Before I spoke, the ambassador left so he missed my session, but after the event he was very active on twitter as he tweeted about the event. I reached out to him about his speech which was really phenomenal. I re-tweeted some of his tweets and a conversation started.
My Big Lesson… Sometimes we want to do some things and we think it is impossible. I am one to go ahead and do it, the worse that can happen is get a no or it fails and that will not make me feel bad. It’s just …

Live Streaming has enabled me literally touch the World, from the comfort of my home and I have been privileged to speak on so many platforms that I could never have believed, would happen for me. I now coach individuals and brands on how they can also do the same and profit financially too…*wink*- you didn’t think I would leave the money out, did you?

But, I hear a lot of people say, I am afraid to ‘Go Live’- I hear you so loud and clear because I was afraid too. When I started, I had so many questions and I didn’t even know what I could do with the platform, let alone profit from it. 15 months & counting with over 1000 …

A lot of people get stuck when it comes to this, or they don’t even get started at all. They say things like… Am I not going to run out of things to say? Am I even going to make sense?
Yes, you are going to make sense and that’s because I have been there. When I started my journey, I had no idea what I wanted to do. But I knew that I love to inspire and encourage people and that is how my journey started. It evolved into the Sparkle with Naomi show and so much more. Right now, I am a people builder; I call out the seed of greatness in others. It is something that flows naturally for me. People connect with me and they say I didn’t think I could do this but after I listened to you, I was pushed, I was challenged and here I am. I get a lot of that and it lets me know I am on track. This is my life purpose. It is my mission to push people to …

If I could sum up Live Streaming in one word, it would be Real-Time. I find it priceless to be able to connect with a live audience and get real-time, instant feedback.
Periscope, Facebook live, Instagram live, Twitter Live, YouTube Live are some of the streaming platforms that can be leveraged on. Your audience is also able to connect with you and ask questions, this can be super engaging and it allows you establish the know, like and trust factor faster than just putting out a post and waiting for people to read and connect with you.
If you want to keep your audience connected every time you go live- consider the following:
Let your listeners know you are excited to be with them.
Be excited and show it. Let your listeners know that it is great having them on your broadcast. People can’t get into your broadcast and you are just moody and non-excited. When I see something like that, the first thing I want to do is jump out of it after all there are so many people who are broadcasting. …
