  1. I have wanted to open a YouTube channel for a long time. But it can be quite intimidating. I am certainly comfortable being in the limelight. But when I research about the topic, people talk about the algorithm and being demonetized and all sort of stuff that sound a bit too tech-saavy. 

    1. Hello Ann,

      I say just take a chance and go for it!!

      I know several people who took a chance and are doing very well in their decided niche. Being able to do something you love, and being able to share it with the world no matter what the outcome, can be overwhelming. But without risk, you will NEVER know how successful or how good you really are without taking that first step.

      It won’t happen overnight, but with a lot of hard work and dedication, you can do anything.

      My favorite YouTuber is Emmymade. She started her channel in 2010 while living in Japan. I heard she started it because she was homesick and she would make videos of the food her audience sent her. She would critic the taste, smell, and texture. Now after 11 years in the business, she has over 353K followers who love her 1,517 video posts about food she loves to eat, make, and critic. 

      Dream Big!
