Welcome back to You ask I answer.
This is a video series I did for almost three years, really at the start of the the Trust Insights era of my career from 2018, really to the end of 2020.
And we took a year off, because I wasn’t sure that was driving any value to the company.
But when we did some more thorough data analysis later on, found that there may be some benefit for the company from a marketing perspective, to have brand awareness and things.
And so from a business perspective, that would be one of the reasons why this is coming back.
But the other is a piles of questions that have been piling up for a year.
And I gotta be honest, something I don’t know what it was.
But something made me fall out of love with blogging.
In the last a year, I, for those who’ve been reading the blog for a while, you’ve likely seen gone from like five posts a day to four to three.
And with everything going on in December of last year, it just fell by the wayside.
And I didn’t miss it.
But I still want to create content.
So I want to provide value to you.
By generating answers to questions, right, by by answering questions to the best of my ability, in a format that works for rich media, which is video and audio, and text.
And lets me answer stuff kind of the way we would answer things.
If you and I were having a conversation, right? If we were sitting across from each other at a coffee shop or at a conference or an event.
And you had a question, this would be the way that I would answer the question.
I’m getting rid of sort of time constraints.
So I used to have this target in mind, I got to answer this question in less than 10 minutes, or I can’t fit the video on LinkedIn, for example.
Or I asked this question three minutes feels kind of short for an episode.
And again, I’m realizing it doesn’t actually matter.
Right? The answer is the answer.
However, little or much time it takes.
So that’s why you ask I answer is back.
Again, trying to do different things I also want very selfishly, for my own professional development, want to play around more with tools like Adobe Premiere, and stuff that I’ve been paying for for two years with a Creative Cloud license, and not really getting the value out of it.
Because I hadn’t made time to learn the tools.
Over the last couple of months, the tail end of 2021.
I had some video projects I was working on for some friends, non work related stuff.
And I really enjoyed it.
I was like, Oh, I can do this.
I can do this.
And I can do this.
You saw the opening sequence here.
What it looks like when I sit down and take the time to actually learn what the product could do.
It’s pretty cool.
So all these factors come together to bring You ask I answer back.
If you’ve got questions, I’m going to put a link in the show notes that if you want me to answer them, I’m more than happy to and again, we’ll take as little or as much time as we need.
But thank you for watching.
Thank you for sticking with the channel and I look forward to answering your questions.
