When creating a channel on YouTube, the easy part starts in the beginning phases. Gearing up to buy everything, setting up the channel, even figuring out what tools to use to help you grow.
However, that part is easy for many to get through but the real challenge comes in what's next. And it is that phase of starting a YouTube channel that many never overcome and there are 2 primary culprits for it.

The Journey by Social Media Examiner (Business Vlog)
If I knew what I know now, I wouldn't have made these 5 mistakes and so many more my first year on YouTube.
This week, I peel back the curtains on not just the mistakes I made but the mindset that contributed to these mistakes.
I hope you can glean some wisdom from my mistakes and learn to correct what mistakes you may be making in your own creative journey.
If it's not clear, chances are it's confusing and that's a good way to not get the views and subscribers you're hoping for.
If you've been wanting to create more social media micro-content whether it be for Tik Tok, Instagram, LinkedIn, or even now YouTube Shorts, but you feel like you're overthinking it...you probably are lol.
In this episode, we dive into three categories you can use to start getting ideas of what to post on social media whether from your existing videos or new content you create native for the platform.

We all have felt that drop in our stomachs or that queasiness in our stomachs when we are about to start recording a video or go live. How do you deal with that and is the fear of being on camera holding you back?
This week we dive into some of the fears creators and entrepreneurs experience that keeps them from posting more video content or even getting started at all!
In this week's episode, we kick this off VERY DIFFERENTLY than what you're used to if you're a regular listener here. Instead of bringing my microphone that I know would be miles better, I chose to use the microphone on my phone for today's show.
We all have standards for what is acceptable and what's not when it comes to our video content but what if it comes down to just doing a down and dirty setup vs your very best setup? Would you wait until you're in "your best" or just do it?
Is a lack of gear holding you back from creating the content you envision or is it just a preference holding you back?
I don't say this as often and as loud as I should but this episode will expose one of the main reasons why people drop off their videos and leave within the first few seconds vs sticking around longer to watch your videos!
If you've just purchased the Rodecaster Pro or currently adding to cart all the things you need to buy alongside your Rodecaster Pro, be sure the add the right memory card.
The last thing you want to do is get to a place where you're frustrated because you're ready to record your next podcast or interview and your memory card is showing little to no space available.
Here's a quick video if you prefer a visual example, or you can skip down to the recommended memory card to use.
The Rode has listed only specific brands to use with the Rodecaster Pro and they agree to only use Sandisk or Samsung MicroSD memory cards.
Some cards don't have what's needed to properly write to the card and sometimes can result in an error message.
It's not worth landing an important podcast interview, only to have your memory card become corrupt or not work...
