Around 2015-16, I started posting on YouTube.
Because I wanted to be a motivational speaker.
But of course, I failed. For several reasons:
- No consistency
- No research into customers
- No understanding of tags
- No understanding of re-indexing
- Zero editing
Also, over time I wanted to devote myself to writing full-time. So I stopped posting there.
Was it a failure?
I have recently gotten into a contract with one of the top ten startups of India to create video course for them on Content Writing. All because of those video speaking skills.
This is not to boast anything about. I still believe it was pure luck.
However, there is something from Steve Jobs that comes forward to help us: You cannot connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backward.
Getting curious and doing the things without the intention of being famous or rich, just because you are inclined towards it is one of the biggest privileges of life.
And for YouTube, the subscriber base has finally grown. From 37, we have reached 41. LOL.
If you would love to extend your support, please follow me on Twitter as that is where I am planning to work more in 2021, YT is not on my list as of now. Thank you so much 🙂
