Hello ,

Behind the Scenes with Content Creators by Shelley Carney

Content creators love the creative process.

Sometimes a little too much.

I'm a few days behind on some of my tasks because I'm having so much fun making short clips from long-form content and taking a day trip to gather content for our YouTube channel, New Mexico Day Trips.

I shared all my behind-the-scenes secrets this week in my live shows and blogs including our Messages and Methods livestream, Behind the Scenes of Our Weekly Live Shows.

Often I'll say to our audience, I do four shows a week. You certainly can do one show a week. 

But you have to become a consistent content creator first.

Four shows might be pushing it too far. We like to try a lot of things and see what works best.

By the end of the year, we are struggling to keep up with it all.

That's when we have to make a choice about what to keep and what to let go.

Take a look at the four shows I do and let me know what you think.
