In my last post I talked about finding my primary and secondary platforms. I mentioned my primary platform is YouTube and secondary platform is TikTok. I also talked about posting content videos.

I started posting regularly on both platforms and am having a BLAST! Who knew this was so much fun!

When I first started making content, I’ll admit, I was pretty nervous. I hesitated to put myself out there, worried about making mistakes, and concerned about what others might think. But then I had an epiphany – all that fear was just holding me back! I understood that if I wanted to thrive in my business, I had to face those fears head-on. And you know what? It’s been quite the journey!

I wanted to reiterate that you CAN DO IT also. If you are uncomfortable getting in front of the camera, remember that your videos do not have to be of you talking. You can create content with images and then post written messages. Try both ways and see which one you like.

Thank you to one of my peers, Alison Blaire, for the recommendation on the book The YouTube Formula.

I decided to invest in myself and enhance my knowledge and I am reading this book with a passion. I want to learn all I can about YouTube and creating videos. In the Forward of the book the writer, Derral Eves states that everyone should have a YouTube Channel. I agree with that.

Derral Eves also writes, “Make 100 videos. It doesn’t matter what they are because they will be terrible, but do something you like doing.  Your first 10 videos will be garbage, then make 10 more. These will also be garbage, and so will the next 10. But eventually things will start to improve. You’ll get better little by little. The best way to improve your content is to make content and see what people like.

That is what I am doing. I am making as many videos as possible and I will see what people like.

And that is what you must do also. Make those videos, find content anywhere you can. Just pull out your phone and start your video.

I am also continuing my training on how to create captivating videos. If you are like me and want some training on shooting captivating videos I recommend any type of iPhone (or any phone) Videography class as I am continuing to learn so much. I am currently learning about Creating composition techniques such as Leading Lines and symmetry. Symmetrical composition is very pleasing to the eye. It is all about the angle of the video. What you see around you can be Leading Lines.

I am having so much fun trying to create content. If I can create fun, engaging content this should help me capture more traffic.

I find content in almost everyday things, going to the store, going to the gym, going to the DMV. If you look around I bet you can find content creation, you just have to open your mind.

Here are few of my recent videos. One is about Affiliate Marketing, and the other is not. I am using CapCut to edit my videos.

Check out my gym video here.

Check out my DMV video here.

I feel like I am still in the garbage stage but hey, we got to start somewhere right?

I saw this quote somewhere “Growth and comfort to do not coexist”. In order to grow you must get uncomfortable. And that is what I am doing and you must also. Get uncomfortable and I guarantee you it will get easier.


Pick your primary and secondary platforms. Then start making videos. Make a lot of them. Some will be bad and some will be good. but one thing is for certain you will get better at creating videos the more you do it. If you have not read my blog “Just Do It”, you can read it here.

Have you started creating content videos? How are you feeling about that? Do you find it is getting easier? Please leave a comment below as I would love to hear from you.

Till next time.

  1. Hi Sherri,
    Very inspiring and so happy you are enjoying it so much, it makes a huge difference. Sounds like you’re well on your way and no doubt will grow in leaps and bounds! I enjoyed your videos, cartwheels make me dizzy and I don’t recall waiting more than 2 hours at a DMV… over 4 hours 😲 wow!
    Keep up the awesome work Sherri!

  2. Hey Sherri, WELL DONE! I love your enthusiasm for taking on video. I also purchased the YouTube book, and I am enjoying it so far. I still haven’t picked my primary and secondary traffic methods yet, as I am still on the fence. I’m leaning towards YouTube and maybe doing FB lead ads for a paid traffic source, but I am doing more research. Once I go all in, that’s the focus, and I want to make the right decision. I look forward to following you on your journey.

    1. Vanessa,
      Thank you for your comment. Good luck with choosing your primary and secondary traffic methods. I know you will find the ones that work best for you. I have not looked into FB lead ads. I may do that later as my business progresses.

  3. Hi Sherri,
    I’m loving your attitude when it comes to making videos. It should be fun, I just wish I was enjoying it as much as you are. As you say, volume will win eventually. We’ll get there with perseverance. Keep up the great work.

    1. Andy,
      Thank you for your comment. I am having fun making videos, however I still am nervous. I hope that will subside a little but that is not going to stop me.

  4. Sherri,

    It’s amazing to hear you’re diving into content creation with such enthusiasm! Facing fears and embracing the learning curve is a bold move that’s already paying off. Your advice on trying different formats and your dedication to learning from resources like “The YouTube Formula” are spot on. Keep up the fantastic work, and remember, growth often starts in discomfort.

    Can’t wait to see where your journey takes you!

  7. Sherri,
    It looks like you are having so much fun posting content. That’s awesome! I sure hope once I get on their it will be that way for me. Not so sure it will. I will have to check out that book. I’m thinking about having TikTok as my main platform, but later get on YouTube once I have TikTok down. Thank you for all the useful information. Take care.

    1. Meredith,
      Thanks for your comment. I am having fun posting videos and I am constantly trying to find new topics to post about. I am still nervous when I make a video but it is a rush that I like. Just start making videos and don’t think too much about it. You can do this Meredith!

  8. Sherri, It’s great to hear that you’ve found your groove with YouTube and TikTok! It’s totally normal to feel nervous at first, but facing those fears head-on is key to growth. Your determination to invest in yourself and enhance your skills is inspiring – keep up the amazing work! Looking forward to seeing more of your engaging content. thanks, Atif

  9. Hi Sherri!
    What an inspirational read and a kick in the pants at the same time! LOL
    I really like this post about your beginnings with TT and YT! This is a definite #win!
    It took courage for me to begin TT. I haven’t put much time into YT yet.
    You are very convincing to give it a go! I love your enthusiasm! It is as if you are speaking directly to me!
    I can’t wait to hear more about your journey!
    All the best!
