2020 was definitely a troubled year for many (including me) but at the same time, it was a year of growth. Massive growth I'd say.
In this post, I'm going to give you an overview of how it went for me.
I started the year going strong on my YouTube channel, posting over 250 videos and live streams, and although I didn't hit my 100k subscribers goal, I'm really happy with the number I'm currently at 83k subs.
The main reason why I didn't hit the goal was that in the 2nd part of 2020 I burned out several times and I stopped posting that much. I'm confident that if I would have continued to post 2-3 videos per week, the goal would have been achieved. But that's ok. Hitting 100k is now just a matter of time.
I also moved away from streaming on YouTube to streaming on Twitch because I wanted to keep my channel clean and only upload highlights of those streams. But that didn't really happen either. Bummer.
All-in-all, with all the ups and downs, I'd say that it was a great year and I'm happy about the progress.
Since February 2019 I've been creating a lot of free content: Twitter posts, articles on my blog, videos for YouTube, live streams on Twitch, and much more...
After almost 2 years it was about time to create a paid product. Long story short, I created a Course with my good friend Brad Traversy and I also wrote an eBook - which was the hardest thing I did this year.
So far the course made me a bit over $21k and the eBook is hitting $10k soon. All of this income came in December which made it the highest month income-wise I ever had in my life - by a long shot!
I tend to be all over the place and do whatever I feel like doing (which is not necessarily the best thing to do). Here are some other things I did in 2020:
Grew my Twitter audience to 67k followers
Completed the entire freeCodeCamp Curriculum in 29 days while live-streaming everything
This is one of my favorites: I got to extend my network and meet a lot of very interesting people, some of whom I admired for a long time!
I got fat 😅 (I know, I know! This is not relevant for the story but I wanted to leave it here to remind myself that I need to lose some weight in 2021!)
I burned out. Thrice. So lame! 🙄 I need to be more careful in 2021.
For me this year had it all. High highs and low lows. Now I just want to enjoy the highs and try to learn the most out of the lows while preparing for 2021 - which will be legendary (as I have some new, exciting goals 🤩)!
