The Power of Live Video

The Power of Live Video

Our guest today, Sandra Centorino, is a helper, teacher and encourager!


Sandra’s first foray into live video was In 2015.  After hitting that GO LIVE button, her life and business received a huge surge, moving everything in a whole new direction – one that she would have never imagined.


As Sandra told stories on live video, people starting watching and telling their friends to watch. She began growing an organic audience of people from around the globe which are today called “Livelies.”  Her live-streaming journey has been filled with connections, collaborations, clients, and customers…


For several years, Sandra believed a lie. She had always assumed that everyone knew what she did, which turned out to be wrong.  Live video has helped Sandra grow her charity Say it forward® and her business.
