The video is scary! Wouldn't it be nice to find a way to get over that fear of creating the video?  Once over that fear, it would be awesome to learn how to grow a following on YouTube.  Beyond growing a following on YouTube, don't you want to know how successful YouTubers create such consistent content and how they became a YouTuber.  Let's face it we would all love to become a BOSS on video.

On this SPECIAL episode, I did a two-part interview with my good friend Amy Schmittauer.  Amy and I have been good friends couple a couple years as I first discovered her podcast then instantly became a subscriber of her YouTube channel.  I also happen to be responsible for introducing her to my good friend Vincenzo Landino who is now her fiance and business partner at Aftermarq.  Amy is boss when it comes to every aspect of her career and when I found out she was launching her book I couldn't have been more proud.  So on this two part podcast I discuss with Amy her journey to becoming a YouTuber, video best practices, her January Vlog Everyday project with Vincenzo and counting down to the big book launch.  The second part of the interview was done when I arrived in Columbus Ohio on the day of her book launch.  We discussed the process, my admiration and respect I have for everything she does as well as some exclusive insights into video’s role in promoting products like a book launch.
