At the beginning of this month I decided to launch something new. I staged an area of my one-bedroom, SF apartment, I set up my iPhone on a tripod and I braved the camera. All of this so that I could launch The Intern Hustle’s YouTube channel.
Now that I’m a full month in, I’m happy to report that the videos have gotten better each week. If you have been watching since the beginning, thank you, and hopefully you agree.
You guys know I love talking about initiative muscle and the importance of consistently showing up and taking action. If you’re new here, you can read more about this on the home page.
I decided to create a YouTube channel that gives you the kick in the butt you need to take initiative. Whether you need inspiration, the how to, or both, I release a new video to the channel every Monday to help you on your journey. The series is called Initiative Muscle Monday — Helping you to start each week with an intentional step toward a successful future.
If you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to the YouTube channel so that you’re in the loop on all new videos.
And now, for the August 2018 recap…
