🎥 What it takes to be successful as a business🎥 - Running a business isn't easy whether it's YouTube, a local business, an artist or whatever. It's not just paying people to do it or getting lucky. It's long nights of learning how to get better, how to make things smoother, how to make your clients, viewer or buyer have a more pleasing experience. It's sometime a full day of nothing but mistakes. But you gotta keep pushing. Every single successful person I have talked to didn't get "lucky" they worked hard to become an "overnight success". They said I'm going to do this and nothing was going to stop them. That's why they are in the place in they are. They stopped wishing, just did, and things eventually came to them. myrantfortheday

Little setup from the other day using @aputurephoto lights. The whole kit is under $1000 and gives you tons of options. The build quality is alright, but the lights are super useful and come in handy.

🎥GOOD THINGS TAKE TIME 🎥 - I've said it before but if you are struggling. Take a step back, go do something else and when you've completely forgot about the project come back to it. You'll have new ideas and things will flow naturally😬

🎥People Need to know🎥 - I think it's important that everyone knows what you are doing especially when offering a service. If your good friends don't know what you are doing. How can you expect a potential client to find you? It's a simple thing, but I think it makes a big difference

🎬Trying New Things🎬 - Change can be scary, but it's always good thing to get out of your comfort zone and let your instincts take over on what to do next. So long story short let's get a little cliche and say "new year, new me". So try things and experience life!

📽Filmmaking as a Business | Rediscover your passion I think a lot of times we get caught up in making money and trying to be successful in our craft. But every once in a while you need to step back, do something for for fun and realize why you started doing it.

Filmmaking as a business | Buying the Right Car Just a little rant. There's a lot of little things that make you're day to day easier. In this case, it's the car. My other car is Infiniti coupe and I used to try and fit all my gear in it. It was a mess. So I ended up getting a second car, a 96 4 runner. It's cheap and effective. I can fit the majority of my gear in it, and even fit 4x4 frames.

⏱Spend your time in the right places Just a random thought I had today. Hard work does pay off, but make sure you're putting that effort in the right things. Put your effort and time into things that are going to push your towards your goals, not something that's on the sideline. Have a good weekend!

📽Filmmaking as a Business | Ep 2 Sell Yourself As a filmmaker people will hire you for your work, but understand that will people will come back to you because of the experience that. When I say sell yourself, what I mean is sell your personality. Be friendly, be authentic and what honestly genuinely care about your products and your clients. Doing this will get you more work than having the best video.

📽Episode 2 | Revisions As a filmmaker you're in a service business. Whether it's a client or director, it's your job to please them. So today's episode is about Revisions, it's about understanding that although you are the "artist" your client or director has the final say.

Your 🍞 and Butter You don't have to land $20,000 videos every day. For me my "Bread & Butter" are real estate videos. They are consistent, take a reasonable amount of time to film/edit and Pay my bills. The bottom line is you don't have to be making feature films to make a good living, find a niche in your area and dominant it.
