I would have laughed if you told me I would be on YouTube. Here’s what I would have told you:
1. I don’t have the time for YouTube! YouTube seems so time-consuming. There’s no way I can find the time to do it.
2. I don’t know anything about editing or what camera or equipment I need! I’m the least tech-savvy person. I also don’t know anything about social media-I mean, I went 3 years without posting a single Instagram photo!
3. I lack the confidence. I’m not good on camera, I’m shy and have always been TERRIFIED of public speaking and I mess up my words a lot. People will laugh at me! I’m going to end up embarrassing myself. I’m scared. I just don’t have that “YouTube personality’. My anxiety just wouldn’t allow it.
4. I doubt anyone would want to watch me. I love talking about personal finance, but it’s not like I’m an ‘expert’ or have a finance degree… who would want to watch me?
I even opened up to Business Insider recently about some of these fears I had.
