1 year ago Wendy had 70k subscribers now well over 350,000 on YouTube

One year ago @withwendy had 70 k subscribers today she has 372k. Wendy started creating clothes out of desire to make what she saw but better. Every Wedneday Wendy provides a sewing tutorial and teaches future fashionista’s how to DIY clothing.

Wendy didn’t have a background in fashion on the contraty she worked in corporate America and decided to create a Youtube channel out of sheer desire.

When you first encounter Wendy’s creations you automatically have a sense of envy (just joking). She does an incredible job of making modern clothing from scratch that you wish you could buy at your favorite clothing boutique.

We discussed:

  • How she went from business and engineering to self recording her Youtube videos
  • Not being awkward on camera
  • Becoming comfortable with who she is as a person
  • Speaking honestly to people she doesn’t know
  • What fuels her to continue sowing?
  • The importance of being interested in what you are youtubing about
  • How encouragement helps you keep going
  • How her style is a mixture between J. Crew and Adidas
  • What she would do differently if she had to restart her brand
  • Deciding what DIY projects to work on
  • The amount of time you have to put into YouTube

How to Grow Your Part-Time Passion to Full-Time Influence

Harold Arnold is a good friend. His work ethic is to be gleaned from. In this episode we discuss his new book Second Shift: How to Grow Your Part-Time Passion to Full-Time Influence.  

You are uniquely created to reflect an aspect of God here on earth through the influence that you wield. Influence, however, is widely misunderstood as a commodity reserved for a precious few. In reality, you are designed to transform your families and communities with a transcendent message of hope as you commit to listen, love, and lead with authenticity.
Second Shift is a step-by-step plan for leveraging your passions as a path to extraordinary possibilities, especially suited for those pursuing them in the part-time margins of life.- Harold Arnold
