I’ve always been afraid of what people think of me. In videos, I fear that I’ll come across as disingenuous. That I’ll look like I don’t know what I’m talking about. That my hair won’t be perfect.
So yesterday, I decided I’m tired of it. I’m conquering this fear.
I now know who I am and why I’m here. I’m ready to move through what was once a limiting self-belief, and into my land of the free.
I have a feeling I’m not alone in this fear, either. Just a hunch. Maybe not, but possibly? If you’re reading these words, feeling something that touches on a related fear you have deep inside—of sharing your full self with other people, and if making video content feels right, yet inexplicably terrifying, come try this with me and you won’t be alone 😊
As a man of extremes, I naturally decided to go really big with this. 29 days. 29 videos. 29 opportunities to embarrass myself (or ourselves together?).
During the month of February, I’m going straight into the heart of my fear. If you have similar fears holding you back from creating & sharing your gifts with the world… whether in video, podcast, or written format… I wanna invite you to join me on this creative challenge.
F29: My 29 Day + 29 Video Challenge
I know. I came up with the name late last night while I was making this video:
It’s ok if you don’t watch the video, but I had a lot of fun making it lol. If you’re kinda thinkin you might wanna dip your toe into these waters with me in February, it’s a great primer that walks through all the whys & whats you can imagine.
Sound fun? Sound scary? Moving past your fears can be both scary AND fun when we’re doing it together. I D.A.R.E. you.
Sign up right here to join me and we’ll get this party started on February 1st.
Join Me in the F29 Challenge
What is this F29 Challenge Thing?
Starting February 1, 2024, I’m going to create & publish 1 new video every single day of the month.
And if this speaks to you, I want you to join me in doing it too. Or at least doing your version of this. Perhaps that’s making your very first video. Maybe you’re ambitious, yet more sane than me, and wanna commit to making 1 video each week.
The number doesn’t matter. Neither does the format you create your content in, tbh. All are welcome to this creative accountability party.
What does matter, is that you have the opportunity (for free) to join a community of at least 1 other creator… possibly dozens, maybe hundreds… in taking real, actual steps towards expressing ourselves as individuals, together.
Here’s what you can expect when you join me in the F29 Video Challenge:
- Membership with me in a private Discord group where we’ll share our creations, hold each other accountable, and give constructive feedback (this group has a lead-with-kindness policy)
- Inside access to my recording schedule in a copy & paste Notion board template you can use to schedule your own creations for the month (and happily ever after)
- Real, raw, honest, and kindly communicated feedback on your
workart, from me throughout the month
- A behind-the-scenes look at the budget-friendly tools, gear, and equipment I use to shoot & edit videos quickly
- My process for researching and coming up with clever video topics that’ll attract new audiences
And probably a lot more, based on the unique challenges, wants, and wishes of whoever joins me in this challenge.
You’ll definitely get access to my free YouTube video idea generator, but you can play with that right now too.
If my co-founder Andy, over at RightBlogger, doesn’t kill me for saying this—I’ll also hook everyone up who joins the F29 Challenge, with a ridiculously good deal on unlocking unlimited access to the 60+ content creation tools we’ve built inside the platform.
More than anything… my goal is to do this with you… to Be with you. And to show you that creating great videos that genuinely educate & entertain people, doesn’t have to be hard, time-consuming, or expensive.
There’s A LOT more I cover in the video above, so if you plan on joining me, but haven’t watched that vid yet, please do.
What’s Happens Beginning on February 1st?
We start making things! I’ll be making 29 videos, but you can make anything you’d like… fire up your blog and write alongside us, record your first podcast episodes, dust off your easel and paint to your heart’s content, bust out your pencils and illustrate with us.
There’s no wrong way to participate in this creative challenge. I’ll be making videos, and I challenge you to consider that first, but all courageous creators are welcome to my parties.
When you join the challenge, you can expect two things from me:
- An invitation to our private Discord community (coming January 30th)
- A preparation checklist to make the most of this challenge (coming January 30th)
It’s pretty simple, really…
- I’m going to create fun, useful things for & with the beautiful people in my world
- I’m going to conquer my fears—and if you have fears that might rhyme a bit, I’m inviting you to do this with me
Maybe, just maybe, this’ll be a little less scary, doing it together.
