Once you are ready, then just click on Go Live and you'll be broadcasting to your own newsfeed that only you can view. The good thing about this method is you can practise to your heart's content using Facebook's platform and if you face any issues, you can find solutions without panicking.

Once you feel more confident, you can choose Specific friends and get their feedback on whether you are speaking clearly, your content is relevant, etc. When you fully ready to face the world, go ahead to your Business Page and start your Live video to wow the world!

Note: Do remember to set the Post setting back to Public or Friends otherwise whatever you post can only be seen by yourself.
