Sprinkle that with ambition, a killer wit, and weekly bite-sized YouTube videos on how to build a savvy, smart and oh so sexy business… ūüôĆ ¬†you have me weak in the knees. For years now I‚Äôve been following Amy Schmittauer, a YouTuber that is watched every week in over 179 countries with more than 600 episodes accumulating 3 million views. A few months ago though, she came out with a video that made me love her even more. ¬†The video was in response to some video comment trolls (and yes she basically yelled at the camera). Why? ¬†Not to defend herself. ¬†Not to send hate back. Instead, because she knows that fear of rejection and criticism is the main reason people are afraid to hit publish on their videos. ¬†Because she knows her viewers are people who, unlike the trolls, are ready to put in the work. ¬†And because she wants to make sure any person who is inspired to create a video, does so knowing that even if they only get one view, it was worth it. How did she build up her confidence to be able to¬†speak her truth and say screw the haters? Tune into this week‚Äôs episode to find out…
