30 Day Startup Video Blog, Day 30: The Takeaways.


What a trip this whole experience has been.

It was a lot more work than I expected it to be, but overall a good experience.

The first takeaway from my 30-day video blogging journey was that I got a lot more comfortable putting myself out in the world. In the first few video blogs I was extremely insecure about looking like an idiot to the whole world. By the end, I felt really comfortable putting my true self out there. Also, I love the idea of having a time capsule on my life over the last thirty days.

The second takeaway was that—out of necessity—I became much faster with the editing and production process. I was able to test out new techniques and was forced to step-up the speed at which I shot, edited, processed, and uploaded. This is definitely a set of skills that will serve me in the future.

The final takeaway, which I discuss a bit in this last video blog, is that I was able to shift my perspective from suffering through it to enjoying it. At the beginning of the process I enjoyed making and uploading the video blogs, but after about ten it became a huge burden and I started hating the process and suffering through it. Finally, someone asked me, “How is hating the process making you better at the videos or in business?” After thinking about it I realized, “it’s not.” Suffering through the process is optional and I was just making it unpleasant for myself. You can watch my resolution in How is Your Stress Serving You?
