So, I’m a pretty patient person when it comes to other people. That is unless I’m in a hurry in the grocery or Ikea and people in front of me are just ambling about and their party members are side by side blocking the entire aisle.
Anyway, I am not, however, patient when watching training videos. I tend to think I can absorb the same info even if it is played fast and to this point, so far, I’ve been right.
But fast forwarding video isn’t always possible when you’re watching online video.
I discovered today that if you are watching a video using Quicktime (I’m on a mac but, I think it works on PC too) that you can speed up the playback rate. Here’s how to do it:
With the video playing, hold down the option key and click the fast forward button. The more times you click fast forward, the faster the video will play.
Simple and effective. I’ve found I can watch a video, depending on the cadence of the speaker, about twice as fast and still gain all the info.

A Quick Note From Deanna…
Another busy week here at the HQ!
Along with having some great calls with clients and meeting with my team on some new projects, I was so happy to have had a really fun time on my fr*ee training call yesterday, “3 Mistakes Business Owners Make That STOP Them Getting More Clients … And How You Can Avoid Them!”
My pal and colleague, Anita Kirkman interviewed me and boy did we have fun. Did you miss it? You can still get the recording and the valuable tips I shared here.
The best part? On the call, I announced the launch of my new program, End Marketing Overwhelm Forever. And I’m telling you, I couldn’t be more proud and excited about it.
You see it’s the culmination of everything I’ve learned small businesses need to do to be successful. And if that weren’t enough, instead of throwing all the solutions and systems at you at once, it’s delivered in short weekly lessons. So there’s no chance you’ll get overwhelmed and frustrated. Cool huh? Check it out here.
This weeks’ article is my assault on one of my biggest pet peeves, ineffective one-to-one or “get to know you meetings.” Done right they can be super powerful. Done wrong and they’re a HUGE waste of your time and energy.
It’s all about getting the best results for the least amount of effort.
See you next week.
