The next tip from my Media Training 101 is to learn various appearance situations and stay sharp in those areas. Whether it be interviews, co-hosting, press junkets or speaking directly into the camera. This is a great for when you want to prepare yourself for success... so when bigger and better opportunities come to you, you want to have the experience to be prepared.
It's really important to know the difference between a regular interview, versus a press junket interview...and also it's great to learn teleprompter so that if an opportunity comes up for you to speak directly into the camera with a prompter, you know how to do that. So, set yourself up for success and get the training, now, while you're first starting to working to be a media expert. Whether you train with me as a media coach or somebody else, it's really important to train in all of these areas so that you're prepared for any situation or opportunity that might arise.
