So where’s my pivot? As SimpLee Beth on YouTube asks. The pivot has mainly been a mindset shift for me. I had created 143 vlogs and 20 podcasts while I was just finding my feet. I knew the kind of thing I wanted to be doing and just started doing that. Then the days turned into weeks, and the weeks turned into months and in my most recent vlogs – I felt that I was just coasting down the desert highway after my tank ran out petrol a few hundred meters back. I was doing all this stuff, creating without direction or purpose. Then I thought about my ‘why’ that I discovered at vlog 50 which was ‘Empowering storytellers to think creatively about getting their story to world’. Then I thought if I can create a successful career doing something that I love, and document how I did it in a book, then maybe you’ll be able to do it to. Either that or I’ll be documenting my slow descent into madness, both of which will be publishable.
