Non. Stop. Work.
That was my life. The last two months were insanely busy for me. I was neck deep in client work: producing videos, overseeing edits, traveling for shoots, keeping constant contact with my client to ensure we are on track for all their videos and upcoming live event. It was 14+ hour days non-stop.
If you're wondering, these weekly videos and educational social posts are my "side hustle". By trade, I am a professional video producer providing quality videos to my business clients through my company, Blue Denim Media. So when the client work became all consuming the last couple months, I had no choice but to take a bit of a break from my online posts. I only posted two videos in August as opposed to my usual weekly videos.
I felt so horribly guilty. In my mind, I dropped the ball. I failed. Was I supposed to pick it up the ball again? Should I not bother? This is my "all or nothing," perfectionist mentality. I missed a couple weeks so I should just pack things up and forget about it. Anyone else relate?
Note to self: calm down
The cool thing is in the last couple weeks I've had countless people--in person and online--tell me how much they're learning from my videos. It's been so encouraging to hear! I mean, that's the whole point of this little endeavor: teach the basics of video so anyone can create polished videos to connect with their audience online. It's actually happening!
So...here I am. Ball in hand, posting another video.
I don't have to tell you all this, but I want to be honest with you. Entrepreneurship is hard and can be all consuming. So many times you're doing it all by yourself, but it's still worth it. So if you're in the same "court" as me, know you will "drop the ball" sometimes, but you can always pick it back up and make it a learning experience. The last few weeks have pushed me to consider how to make my video execution more efficient. I'm already working on a new plan--and once I have it down I'll be passing that info to you. ;-)
OK, on to today's video!
iPhones shoot great video, but you can't do much if you don't have space on your phone! So this short video will walk you through how to clear up space on your iPhone so you can always shoot your videos.
Thanks for reading this far. As someone who had little time to do much of anything the last couple months, I appreciate you taking the time to hear my story.
