If you noticed, there wasn’t a newsletter that went out last week - to be honest, this was semi-intentional.
Part of me was super busy, the other part was just feeling a little lost, and the last bit was just feeling tired and demoralized. So I decided - you know what? I’m just going to take a break this week. Definitely felt guilty for not keeping up with my weekly schedule, but I realized that I severely needed headspace to think through and re-prioritize stuff. I had put aside lots of things I ‘enjoyed’ to make my personal branding initiatives a priority, and I just didn’t have time to think, let alone rest.
Most of you know that I haven’t been posting up and YouTube videos lately. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I’m not able to produce anymore videos on Resume Building or Interview Preparation 😔 - so I’m taking the time to figure out where I want to take my YouTube Channel, and I want to get it right.
As one of my colleagues said ‘I see you are not a 19 year old influencer wannabe on Tiktok’ - and she’s right. I don’t want to put out content that doesn’t add value to anyone - or rather, I’m more focused on the educational piece rather than entertainment.
I think that YouTube is still an incredible platform, and I am investing 2-3 years of my time in this as a business. I absolutely love filming, editing and storytelling, and am nowhere near where I want to be. There’s still so much to learn, and so much potential in this space I haven’t yet explored.
That being said, I’ve reflected and reprioritized my time. I’ve decided to make this newsletter bi-weekly instead of a weekly one to accommodate my current time and schedule! I may eventually change it back in the future, if more time opens up!
How will I use the extra time gained? I’ll be re-purposing most of the time gained for upcoming YouTube videos, and some community building on Clubhouse! The remaining time will be left will just be for me to rest :)
As always, I appreciate all of you who have been following my journey and are continuing to support me :D
Till the next time!
