Why YouTube and Why 100 Videos?

Why YouTube and Why 100 Videos?

At the beginning of 2017, I decided to make it the best year ever.  A year to be creative.  A year to help others.  A year to be just that little bit better.  A year to have more fun and adventure.  A year to constantly be unveiling my NOW WHAT?

Let’s recap… 

December 2016

I bought a $15 course online on: How to Create Your Own Website using WordPress.  Worked on it through December and the Christmas holidays while I ate too much and drank too much.  No clue with what I was going to use the website for exactly.  But I created it and it was out there.  Oh… and I also joined Instagram and created a Facebook page under kellyJOYrust.

January 2017

Launched my website on January 1st 2017 and announced it through a Facebook Live post.  I also announced that I was going to put myself on a 30 day fitness challenge and that I will be posting a video every day to document my progress.  This 30 day Vlog was 1) to get use to making more videos and 2) use my personal training experience to hopefully lose a bit of holiday weight and tone up. I lost 13 pounds.  I looked and felt great.

At the end of the challenge, I booked Boudoir Photos as a gift for my husband for Valentines day and also as a gift to me for my 30 day fitness accomplishment.  It was scary and out of my comfort zone, but conquered the challenge and loved the pics.

February 2017

The month of love.  I dedicated the month to my husband Ryan and I blogged an entire week on things I did to let him know how much he means to me.  I gave him the boudoir photos in an album on Valentine’s Day.  He loved them.

March 2017

My March goal was to go on a Moms Gone Wild trip with my sister Brianne.  I had never been longer than a night away from my two young boys and now was the time.  Brianne and I booked a trip and two weeks later we were on a plane to Cancun, Mexico.  It will be a memory that I will never forget.

April 2017

Which brings us to April.  About a week ago I made another announcement.  I announced that starting immediately, I will be making more videos and posting each one to a channel that I had created on YouTube.   The goal is to Vlog and produce 100 videos by December 31, 2017.

Why YouTube and Why 100 Videos?

 I wanted to elaborate a bit on why my next NOW WHAT challenge and adventure is to create 100 YouTube videos.

Well, firstly, a) I love a good challenge and b) making these videos will be creating more adventure in my life, more fun in my life, more laughs….and who doesn’t want that?

I feel like I need to say that I am a smart, professional business woman about 50% of the time.  But the other 50% of the time, I am extremely silly, ridiculous and weird.  This side tends to come out a lot more when I am making videos. Be prepared.

I feel like YouTube is going to be a place to unload some of the ideas that are floating around in my head and I know that making these videos are going to help me with more NOW WHAT? projects.  Game on!

So… I guess that’s it in a nut shell.

100 videos by December 31, 2017 on YouTube… because being a wife, a mom of two young boys, working 9-5, investing and working on my business just wasn’t enough. 

Oh and I almost forgot…If you haven’t already, go check out Vlog 1, 2 and 3 already on YouTube under kellyJOYrust, SUBSCIBE and get ready for more.
