I can vividly remember the day when my oldest son said he wanted to be a "YouTuber" when he grew up. I was APPALLED!!!! 😂No, seriously, I remember saying something like “you will NOT be a grown (*#$) 30-something year old man living in my basement making YouTube videos and playing around all day”. You see then, people hadn't really tapped into social media for business purposes the way they do now.
Fast forward 10 years and the potential to reach your intended audience is multiplied exponentially through the use of social media platforms. And these days, you're not limited to 1-2 platforms. You can pick and choose the platform that is best for you and your overall goals. And after a lot of research, trail and error, and going back and forth, guess who is going to be a YouTuber when they grow up. 😁
I often speak about the importance of "edutaining" and how you must entertain and educate simultaneously (and I do, I love to teach and keep my learners entertained). But, I usually leave out the part about engagement unless I’m teaching specifically on how to be a better presenter. To be honest social media engagement, in my opinion, is forced and at times ingenuine. I know, I know, this is something that I have to get over. As I continue to evolve to become a better trainer, speaker, consultant, and entrepreneur, I’ve come to realize the importance of engagement, and that it is equally as important as educating and entertaining.
I’m looking forward to keeping you educated, entertained, and engaged with my new YouTube series "Q&AwithQU" launching next month. You can watch the series trailer here!
I love sharing what I know and my new YouTube series is designed for just that.
So... feel free to "pick my brain"! "Q&A with QU" is starting soon.
