I’ve been in this new phase in my life where I want something more than just what I have now. I am looking to expand my audience base and to create more. Having a facebook page for my piano studio has been a blessing. It wasn’t easy to create a facebook page. I had to consistently post on there and that requires work. Not a lot of people know how much work goes into creating a business. It has been more work than I thought it would be, but I am so thankful for my facebook page. Another platform that I created was my blog (aka the one that you’re reading this blog post on). I put so much of my time working on this blog because I genuinely enjoy blogging. Even though I have all of these amazing things, I still want something more. I have been thinking about creating a course. I already began making videos for the course. The struggles I have faced so far makes me very wary of continuing to make a course.
The first struggle that I faced was not having enough room on my phone to continue recording my videos. I didn’t truly understand why youtubers always talk about how they don’t have enough storage for recording their content. I had recorded other piano videos that I was planning on posting. Storage is still a problem now. I’m waiting for my phone to backup my content on google photos. The process is long because I have a lot of videos. I didn’t know that this was going to be something that would happen, but I guess it’s normal. Everyone will have storage problems and I should try my best to overcome this hurdle.
Another struggle that i’ve faced is a lack of energy to record a ton of videos. I think that I am overly ambitious. I have been harboring tons of content and I should have posted them. There are times when I sit down to record my videos and I get tired from recording for hours. If I want to be successful, I have to try to take it slower. I don’t want to burn myself out. I know that I work hard and I need to give myself credit. I honestly hope that this blog post helps someone that is struggling creating an online course. Don’t give up and know that everyone has struggles also.
