Adjust microphone recording volume in Screencast-O-Matic

​There are many tools out there for recording screen capture videos and the one I prefer to use is called ScreenCastoMatic because it's very simple and inexpensive and pretty much does everything I need to do for now.  When my needs exceed this tool, I'll upgrade to the more expensive ones. 

I recently found that some of the videos I've recorded using ScreenCastoMatic, the volume was too low and I didn't realize it. So after much looking around I finally figured it out and wanted to share how I updated my settings. Watch the video, and then be sure to post any comments or questions you may have below the video, and I'll be happy to help in any way I can. 

Thanks for following my posts! ​

#11: Go From STUCK to START in Your Life & Business with Michael Bernoff

Honored to have my new friend, mindset GURU and transformation coach Michael Bernoff on as my special guest this week! He truly helps people transform their lives through Action! I first meet Michael in January of 2013 thru my business coach and social media mentor Nick Unsworth. I had the pleasure of getting to meet him in person in January of this year while visiting San Diego for a mastermind with Nick. Was great fun to meet Michael in person and get to see him help people first hand.

Michael is unlike any individual you will ever meet! He is a powerful, seasoned public speaker who captivates audiences with his dynamic presentation style. He is dedicated to being a life-long student and teacher of communication and rapid personal transformation. His well orchestrated programs will energize, educate, and entertain. You will leave this hangout not only motivated but in possession of unique tools, strategies, and techniques enabling you to take action now, enhancing your life immediately!​

You'll learn how to:

  • Remove procrastination, distraction, and laziness right out of your brain
  • Get out of your own way and stop the resistance when success is within your reach
  • Be the person you've always known you could be
  • Transform your life thru action!
  • And MUCH MORE!!

Orange-starOrange-starOrange-starOrange-starOrange-star I loved the Michael Bernoff hangout - great job Michael and Libby! My biggest takeaway was that I need to set bigger goals and start taking the emotional attachment I have to my life out of the analysis when I question my plans, business and life. Also, that asking for help and getting an "outside opinion" from a qualified source such as Michael or any coach, leader, mentor that can give me clear, honest, unemotional feedback is key in getting from where I am to where I want to be. I cannot do this alone...no one can! Thank you both!! Az

WATCH REPLAY BELOW & CHECKOUT C2A

Call 2 Action is Michael's premier entry course into his vast personal development teachings. If you are serious about making major shifts in your life, be sure to check out this course before it's completely booked for the year. SERIOUSLY! I'm not just saying that for the hype. He SELLS OUT every year!!

Pay it Forward Friday – it’s CONTAGIOUS!! Surprise lunch delivery from New Market BBQ

Pay it Forward Friday – #1

Had the fun of making a surprise lunch delivery to a job site in town where my StepDad was delivering a load of steel beams from Mississippi. I only get to see him a handful of times a year so I was hoping to catch him before he left.

Delivery was a success and I visited with Jay but missed my Stepdad unfortunately. Maybe next time! Pay it Forward Fridays can be a lot of fun and encouraging to someone who may need a smile, Pat on the back or just a thank you for working hard. It’s a blessing for them but an even bigger blessing for you!

Share your Pay it Forward experience too and help encourage others to do the same. It’s CONTAGIOUS!!

Merry Christmas Y’all!

I really LOVE this rendition of “The Little Drummer Boy” by Pentatonix.  I heard this on the radio a couple weeks back then someone shared it on Facebook and then again this weekend at my Dad’s house he asked if I’d heard it.  I HAD to go look it up and listen / watch it again on YouTube.  Such amazing talent!  This is from their new Christmas Album - PTXMas (Deluxe Edition) - Available on iTunes & Amazon

This time of year brings back so many fond memories of my childhood spent at my grandparents house.  One family tradition we always enjoyed was lighting candles, singing Silent Night and walking down the steps to the basement where we always were so anxious to see the Christmas Tree and the Nativity to see if Santa had come. Typically one of us youngsters would carry the baby Jesus and place him in the manger as we continued to sing and then pray, giving thanks for the previous year and praise for the year ahead. Of course, then we all hugged, some of us cried (me ALWAYS) and then we got down to business opening presents and just really enjoying time together as a very large family. I definitely treasure these memories!

I hope you have a wonderful Holiday Season with your family and friends. Be safe in your travels and love each other!

Question: What Christmas tradition do you look forward to the most with your family? Would love to read your comments below!

Facebook Link Share Status Update with new photo, title & description

Check out this quick video I recorded on how to post a Facebook Link Share Status Update and how you can update it with a new photo, title and description.

As long as you upload a large scale image (app 1200 x 700), this enables you to show case the large image in the newsfeed which draws more attention to your Link Share post.  When someone clicks on the large image it will directly take them to the link URL you shared. Great way to drive traffic to your website, blog, online store, etc.

I use this concept for my restaurant Fanpage to share our Weekly Cake GiveAway Landing Page and I update the image with the Cake Special for that week. Here is an example post below so you can how I use this concept.  Using this style of Link Share Post with updated title, description and photo gets great exposure when used in your Facebook Ads.  If you haven’t given this a try yet, do it!  And then post below the results you get. I’d love to hear about it! Let me know if you have any questions.
