This was very nice!

Just got a super-nice comment on one of my presentations videos... Comment of YouTube Channel Carl Kwan 2013-09-27 at 11.41.02 AM

So happy to know that people are learning and using the tips.

Thanks to Sky and everyone else for the continued support.

New videos coming soon... Just been busy with all the PowTooning lately :)


4,000 YouTube Channel Subscribers! Thank you!

Just wanted to give a huge shout out to everyone that has supported me on YouTube and elsewhere. My YouTube Channel has achieved another milestone and every time I hit one of these it is a humbling experience that I'm extremely grateful for. So as always, credit and thanks go out to all of you that have supported and encouraged me. Here's an example of the type of messages I get that inspire me to continue doing this... This is from Ryan, who asked me for some advice for his presentation. I'm happy to help people who prepare something then want feedback because I know they've put in the work first. Anyway, Ryan was one such person and this was his message...

THHHHHAAAAANNNNKKKKKYYOOOOUUU, Mr. Kwan! Your videos made me much more confident and they definitely paid off! Of course, I was nervous at the moment that my name was called, but I went up anyway. Unfortunately, the website (Glogster) completely scrambled all of my media and pictures/videos for my presentation (which was approximately 40% of my presentation) and I to do some on-the-spot things to keep my classmate's attention-but it went GREAT! I utilized your idea to use the candy as their lives (of course, they went crazy for that candy, haha). Before I walked out of class today, my teacher stopped me and told me that I MUST join DECA and that she was even willing to pay for my membership (I'm going to pay myself). Anyway, I'm truly grateful for your help, and it looks like I'm definitely going to need to review your videos daily for now on! Thanks again!

Pretty awesome, huh? Great job Ryan! And thanks once again to all of you for your support.


Inspiring Message of Success

I received the following message from Jessica yesterday over at my old PresentationExpressions.com site. I wanted to share the message because it is so inspiring. It tells me that with motivation and determination, anything can be overcome. Here is Jessica's message...

"Good day sir! We are plannning a few weeks before I watch your videos in youtube a presentation for the class. And I was given the responsibity to represent our group because they “think” that I was able enough to handle one and I doubt that because of the fact that I am an introverted type of person. Lately, because of my goals and aspirations in life, I finally decided to STAND up for something. Since that day people were impressed because of a great potential that I possess. Perhaps, that was the reason why I was tasked to host a presentation. I find it hard because speaking in public is my weakness. But then I realize with constant practice, a driving motivation, reading a lot and most imporatantly, listening to your pieces of advice would soon turn me into a great and inspiring speaker that you was once. I really appreciate every word that you say and it really motivates me to stand up and speak! You’re really an amazing person sir."

I'm sure Jessica will continue finding success because she has learned to control her emotions and find a way to motivate herself when things seem difficult. This isn't just about presenting, but a whole new way she can approach her life.

It's amazing to hear and I hope it inspires others to follow.
