This has been a week of all kinds of shifts and adjustments. As many of you know I Periscope broadcast live stream as many people do with the influx of live streaming. All of my live steams were being saved on a third-party server as with many other people. Originally this was such a great idea since we could save our scopes on this server forever while we decide how to use them later for other opportunities.
Then the unthinkable happen, an email stating they were going to close the site down effective May 4, 2016. Talk about everyone going into “Olivia Pope” mode to see what could be done to rescues our scopes from being deleted forever from this third-party platform.
Katch.me has been nice enough to assist all of us in getting our scopes off their server before it closes forever by helping us move them either to our hard drive or YouTube.
As for now my scopes are downloaded to my hard drive and I am slowly moving them over to YouTube, thank goodness I have less that one hundred so I should have them all downloaded in a few weeks.
The lesson this has taught me as an artist is always be prepared to re-position yourself when one door closes. No one thought this would happen so every Virtual Assistant is gaining new clients because people who have three hundred or more scopes will have to have help moving them over to another space. Live stream is the future, and as it grows we all will have to adjust to many changes along the way.
We all will have to learn to re-position ourselves when we find ourselves in one of those “Olivia Pope” moments. Breath, step back and reset so we can continue to move forward and not become ship wrecked as the above oil painting on Canvas Panel.
