Which gear do I use to record videos? New #equipment

Express yourself my friend my sister! Dance, sing, write or record youtube videos!

Shall you need to be inspired by which equipment can be used to record youtube videos, I have two additions to my existing gear.

I needed a Rode Microphone Cable:

and a “GoPro Compatible Fotopro mini phone tripod“:

Why our ability to express is a gift #notgranted

Why our ability to express is a gift #notgranted

Recently I bit my tongue so hard that I could hardly speak. Probably magnesium deficiency. I will add more raw cacao to my diet.

Anyway, it taught me not to take my ability to speak whenever I want for granted.

Your voice matters my friend my sister. Please do not take your ability to speak for granted. Freedom of speech did not always exist. Knowing how to express yourself in multiple languages is a true gift; use it.

I am grateful, for my mic and for my phone. I am grateful for youtube for being a free platform which enriches my life so much.

Sharing when things are not rosy and happy or single mum #challenges

Sharing when things are not rosy and happy or single mum #challenges

It is so easy to fall into the trap of thinking other women have a better life than us.

I love to smile and share beautiful photos.

However, it is also my duty to share personal struggles. When my son says to me that he is not sure I love him and steals money from me, I feel the pain.

You are not alone in this.

Life can be tough. But nothing is for ever. Not even pain and sadness. Hang in there sister.

A typical day when I fulfill my #mission

A typical day when I fulfill my #mission

I love waking up early. This is freedom for me. 430 or 5 am is perfect. I take a shower, I start the washing machine then I practice self-care: yoga then meditation. Then, I record videos for you, each time in English and in French. By 730am, I wake up the children and help them get ready for school.

By the time they are at school, I work on my websites, before preparing and savoring my unique meal of the day (I do intermittent fasting). Thanks to my burnout and the subsequent career change I made, my son can come back home at lunch time. Thus, he does not have to go to school lunches, where children are forced to eat, whether they are hungry or not. Early afternoon, I follow Roberto Blake’ good advice and do a power nap to maintain my creative juices and cognitive capacities until evening. Each day, I have some errand to run, mostly grocery shopping, and it allows me to enjoy sunshine and fresh air. I like to do a bit of yoga in the afternoon as well, usually a 20-minute-sequence with Yoga With Adriene on YouTube.

My son comes back early from school and, for the first time since many long years, I am there. I am present, even though I do not play directly with him but I work on the computer. It feels very good not be trapped at the office until 11 pm, stressing for my children. I only eat one meal a day, so I prepare a meal for my son in the early evening. I love going to bed early, like 830 / 9pm.

PS: my mic is Rode smartlav +:

Create my friend, my sister! Creating is a way of rebuilding our life. On a practical point of view, this is an example of what gear can be used to start recording youtube videos:

I use the smartphone Samsung A8 after years of using a small low quality phone. I can see the difference it makes. I invested in the Samsung Galaxy A8 especially to record youtube videos and take beautiful photos for my Instagram account @clairesamuelenglish.

What do you want me to talk about for you my friend my sister? My #mission is to help women

My friend, my sister, I record videos for you because my mission is to help women, all women. Which playlists/categories do you prefer? Do you have questions for me? I will do my very best to answer you.

If you read French, my book is for you and know that I am nearly finished with proofreading the English version.
