About this video

This video dives into the art of vulnerability on social media and explores the fine line between being authentic and oversharing. The speaker, KP, emphasizes that vulnerability is a skill that requires courage and practice, much like a muscle that grows stronger over time. To achieve a balance, he advises starting with simple prompts related to your industry or career and gradually delving deeper into what you know, wish you knew, or lessons you've learned. The key takeaway is to think of your audience not as a massive stage but as a small campfire gathering, where your goal is to provide value, insights, or painful truths.
