I am honored and very lucky that I can start every day off making videos. That’s my job now and that’s what I do. I have my own company and I work for myself. I make tutorial videos, inspirational videos, I share my experience learning new things like music and only create videos on topics I am passionate about.
YouTube can help you find your passion
My YouTube channel, Jerry Banfield, has now 150,700 subscribers, more than thirteen million views, and 1,377 videos.
I absolutely love it!
What I’m offering you in this blog post is not a system to do exactly what I’m doing, but an idea for what might work to find your passion for what you want to do. The magic in what I’m doing is that I love doing it! I don’t do it as a means to an end and I’m not trying to go anywhere. I’m happy right where I am at, right here, talking to you today.
That is the miracle.
I’m not trying to use this so I can get somewhere else. I’m not trying to make this into a stepping stone, so then I can do something bigger. This is the big thing I’m doing and I love it! If you want this to be the big thing you are doing, then you have got the basics in this post of exactly what you can do to make that happen.
Ultimately, exceptional things through creativity happen when you love what you are doing, you are present when you are doing it and you are not doing it as a means to an end. You can see a lot of online courses and videos everywhere, where it is just a means to and end and where there is no real passion. You often have to struggle really hard to create things like that too because you have to work against your inner self. You have got to fight by making scripts and forcing everything together somehow.
I make things nearly effortlessly because it comes from the soul. It is passion and I love doing this! There is almost no resistance to it and it just comes out. I don’t have to use a script and I don’t have to plan hardly anything out. It just explodes out of me into existence online. That’s the power I’m offering you by what I share here.
Now, if you want success with YouTube, it is up to you to find an area that you are passionate about. I haven’t seen this covered in books or online courses.
You can do an infinite number of things, but there is only one thing you are going to do right now, that you would be fulfilling your inner purpose, that you would feel it is the right thing to do, and when you match up with that, everything becomes almost effortless.
That’s not to say your whole life is perfect, and you don’t have some down times, but your work becomes a flow of creativity and passion. YouTube is a great venue to explore this. By doing webcam videos, screen captures or even just putting other videos together.
If you love making top ten videos, then give it a try. If you enjoy watching videos on a certain topic, and you have thought: “You know what, I can make a better video on that.” Then go for it if you enjoy doing it, if you do it as the thing that is the big thing to do and not a means to an end.
You too can make videos at home full time, but if you are doing it to try and get somewhere else, it is not going to work. If you want to do this, find your passion in it. That can be scary and you will have to make changes to your life lots of times to get things to work exactly the way you want them to.
I had to take 50,000 dollars out in loans a couple of years ago to make a full transition and to doing this that I love, from what I was doing because it paid well of just serving as many clients as I could.
My YouTube audience can see and feel that I love doing this! I took a big risk in borrowing all that money in order to make this transition happen. You might need to take some kind of risk to make it happen for you. You might have to quit your job, you might have to move, you might have to buy a whole new set of computer and recording equipment. You might have to take a risk to get the enjoyment and fulfillment you want out of your work every day. This is well worth it!

Use this Youtube channel tutorial to get tips, strategy, and secrets for creating your success story on YouTube! Learn the YouTube marketing strategy I use in 2014 that can work for you and why is this YouTube marketing strategy the best data supported plan for me and maybe you!

First, I begin by choosing video topics people are interested in learning about. Next, I make videos sharing helpful information about those topics. Then, I upload and tag each video carefully in line with existing videos. Finally, I use Google AdWords to get at least 1,000 global views on that video and share that video on Google+, on Twitter, and on my website. You can see I did exactly that with this video!
You can test out all these tips usually without taking much of a risk, but if you want real consistent fulfillment in what you are doing, you have got to give your all to it. You have got to commit to it and to trust that whatever you are doing is right and just let it happen. So kind of let go in the mind of all of the thoughts, plans and schemes, and just let yourself do what you are supposed to do. That’s what I’m doing now and I just love it!
I hope this blog post is useful for you in getting and being where I am because ultimately a place where I am is now, and it is the same place you are in a bigger sense. It is all about organizing the practical things around you, and being in the moment, enjoying and doing what you love to do and communicating that.
