Why I think everyone should start a youtube channel!

Yup today is the day!
Over the last year many of you know that I’ve been running my nonprofit Launchpad4kids, Inc. but I’ve never really shared my other passion of helping others unleash their ‘something’ amazing!
 
Many of you know my passion for motivating and highlighting others and what I’ve come to learn is that you can’t fight your purpose or what comes naturally.
 
I truly believe that we all have something to unleash and today, this is mine.
 
Some of you already know that I’ve started a Youtube channel, dabbling with videos here and there but over the last year, I’ve taken it seriously, found my voice, started having FUN and become super comfortable with the camera. I now have 73 videos on my channel, started making an income and love the tribe that has developed along with it!
 
Youtube has allowed me to share that purpose in a way that is authentic, uncensored and freeing! So this is the video I thought was the most befitting to unleash it!
 
Thank you to all of you that have been motivating and encouraging me to put this out there, even my more private better half! It feels incredible to have your own personal cheerleader every step of this journey called life! We may not agree on everything but we ALWAYS support!
 
Now I’m taking the advice that I give my own kids-
“Don’t worry about what other people are doing or saying! Put your head down and do YOU!
 
One of my favorite quotes says it all:
“It takes courage to become who you really are”
-E.E. Cummings
One of my good friends always says this to me:
“Transparency is Freedom”
If you have one or have ever thought about starting one, I say get out there and unleash it! #Gottawalkthetalk!

Can I make a salary as a nonprofit?

First off, lets address the time on this video. It’s longer than normal. I went on a bit of a rant when it comes to salaries and nonprofits but I can assure you that there is some good information if you’ve been questioning this decision.

One business mistake that is stunting your growth!

“If you’re trying to speak to everyone, you’re speaking to no one!”

I’m sure you’ve heard this ad nauseam but it’s SO true! Stop trying to capture everyone and nurture who you have!

In my video today, which is sort of a rant style, I decided to show you how to discover if your message is clear enough for your audience to know exactly what you do right away.

Never underestimate the power of your message. People have to know what it is and whether its for them or not. If they aren’t getting this then you’re missing them altogether!

How do you test your message? Leave it in the comments below!

Which phase of unleashing your ‘something’ amazing are you in?

It’s all about the Subbies today!

There are 4 phases to this journey of unleashing your ‘something’ amazing: The idea, starting, building and maintaining.

I’ve been there and I want to help you the best way I can each and every time you watch my videos or consume my content. 

I want to explain each one and what I’d like from you today is to tell me which phase you think you are in and what you’d like to get from this channel.

1. The idea/exploratory phase:

You don’t have anything created, you haven’t started the process to become an organization. You might be unsure of where to start, maybe doing some research…could be working a full time job. Research deciding whether you should be nonprofit or for profit, social entrepreneur, can i sustain myself.

 

2. The Starting Phase:

If you’re in the starting phase- You are actually starting to create the organization. You’ve made the decision move forward whether full or part time. You are in the process of reserving your name, creating your mission or vision, deciding on your board of directors

 

3. The Building Phase:

You have applied for your nonprofit status or become a corporation and now you need people to find out about what you’re doing, how you’re going to structure your organization. Processes that need to be created, sustainability methods, how to use social media, giving your organization structure

 

4. The Maintaining Phase:

This is the true unleashing period of your something amazing. You now have your nonprofit, you are fine tuning, looking at scaling, putting your head down and accomplishing that big audacious goal  so you may be finding your audience, focusing on getting noticed and getting your message out, creating a social media presence, pulling it all together. Looking at things like partnerships and sustainability methods.

Now that you know the 4 phases of unleashing your something amazing I’d like you to tell me in the comments what phase you think you are in and at least one piece of information you’d like to learn from this channel at this point.
