[Episode 137] How to find the confidence to go LIVE. Why the power within you is greater than any situation you face with Sophie Rose Simmons ⋆ TechPixies

[Episode 137] How to find the confidence to go LIVE. Why the power within you is greater than any situation you face with Sophie Rose Simmons

If your feelings about live video are similar to Dracula’s sentiments about sunlight – best avoided – you’re going to want to sit back and tune into this week’s special episode of the Sparkle and Thrive Podcast.

Recorded from Berry, our chief TechPixie’s campervan, parked somewhere just outside Glastonbury, Joy is joined by a woman whose name you’re going to want to remember. Because it won’t be long before the soulful voice of country gospel singer Sophie Rose Simmons is winning accolades at the Country Music Awards. 🎸

This is the story of how one woman found not only her voice but also a whole community only too happy to help her get back in the studio and follow her dreams. 

Here’s why you need to tune in

Discover how Sophie Rose went from feeling painfully shy and anxious about social media to doing an impromptu live stream at a store in Glastonbury. Discover the lessons she’s learnt on her TechPixies journey and how the community that lights her up inspired her to pen a track for her new EP (it’s a future No.1 – just saying). Turn up the volume for a spot of ANT squashing (no ants were harmed in the making of this podcast, FYI), the power of brain priming and an acapella performance you won’t want to miss.

Here’s what to listen out for:

[05:06] Sophie’s feelings on doing her first live video, 

[09:50] What’s the difference between nerves and excitement? 

[11:42] Why is live video so important?
