I've been thinking about starting a YouTube channel for a very long time already. But I always found an excuse on why I cannot do it right now:
But this month I finally decided to get started and make starting a channel my top priority for this month. So I wrote these two goals into my monthly plan:
It was a lot more complicated and challenging than I thought. I had to learn a lot of new things, like how to film, to begin with. I managed to resist the temptation to buy a ton of expensive equipment and started just recording with my iPhone!
Then I had to figure out how to get decent audio. I also just used my iPhone for that. Unfortunately, my office has a very bad echo, so the first recording sounded terrible. But I got creative and ended up recording the audio in my wardrobe which sounded decent enough 😅😂
My biggest challenge though was to overcome my perfectionism. I struggle with this in everything I do. The same problem made it super hard to launch my first app back then because I couldn't stop polishing it. But if I learned one thing from you here on IH it's to "JUST SHIP IT!". So I did exactly that!
This first video is part of a series where I will build a brand new app and I show you everything I do like my research, planning the app, designing and programming it as well as the launch and the marketing afterward. Everything I do I learned with my first app Avocation which I launched in 2019 and recently hit 1 million downloads. The video is about my first week and everything I do before I start coding.

It was a ton of work getting this video out but it was already totally worth it and I am excited to create a lot more videos!!
