They say that you grow when you leave your comfort zone. Well, I will have to get back to you on that. Being in front of a camera as the main subject is definitely one of those things that I am not comfortable doing. Getting back to (or starting actually) creating YouTube videos and Instagram content requires me to learn how to become more comfortable with a camera pointing toward me.

I have been told that I have a lot to share with folks needing legit information, and there is only so much that can be explained with words on a monitor. So, making content for YouTube and other social media platforms can be worth my time and effort. Since I started to publish content, there are a few things that I have learned so far. Here are some of them listed in no particular order.

I probably possess the absolute minimum amount of self-confidence required to make

There is a lot of time and energy that goes into to creation of content.

Like being a bike mechanic, having the right tools (and the best tools) does not make you a good bike mechanic.  Having the best hardware and software does not automatically make you a good producer, editor, etc.

As with anything, you have to crawl before you walk and walk before you run.  This became apparent from the beginning.

So, after getting started a few months ago, posting on Instagram with intention and publishing a few short videos on YouTube, I have transitioned from belly crawling to regular crawling.  I am looking forward to furniture surfing soon!  

I will do my best to keep the momentum going, but I'm kind of a carrot and stick guy when it comes to this type of stuff.  So, to keep me motivated, please follow me on YouTube and Instagram, and if you are compelled, click the like button on the videos or posts you enjoyed.  Lastly, if you have any ideas or suggestions for topics that you want me to cover, please send them my way by leaving a comment below.
