Satchell Drakes – owner of the YouTube channel Satchbag Goods and co-host of the podcast Cinephelia Anonymous – joins Bryce Bladon for a webinar to discuss how creatives can use their existing skill sets to create a Podcast or YouTube Channel. The advice within doesn’t just apply to those two mediums, though.
“This isn’t a prescriptive path to success,” warns Satchell. We’re not guaranteeing you’ll have 100,000 subscribers by the end of the month, or that you can quit your day job tomorrow.
However, it is a fantastic starting point. Satchell expands on how he got started, how he met his heroes, and how his projects improved. He suggests best practices and he gives practical advice for getting started.
And, as always, we address common questions from the live listeners in the audience.
Create, collaborate, and listen. Be consistent in your work and how you interact with your audience and mentors.
In this episode, we discuss the documentaries Helvetica and Indie Game: The Movie. Both are fantastic sources of inspiration.
A comment from Tim Ferris’ recent Reddit AMA offers some great advice (and books) on the good kind of networking.
This article from Business Insider (again, with Tim Ferris) addresses what’s holding you back from getting started on a project.
