My Own YouTube Channel!

May 3, 2010

Valerie Young of is opening her Profiting From Your Passions Career Coach training program to new students. She brings in limited groups so she can give them the time and attention they need for a few months as they start learning the materials and settle in to the supportive community.

I like to brag about the supportive community because I regularly get ideas and resources and encouragement from them. Sometimes I’m part of the helpful crowd, whenever I have something helpful to say in response to other people’s questions.

Valerie asked me to record a video about my experience specifically as someone trained in the ICF model of professional coaching prior to taking her program. I was eager to explain how Valerie’s approach, her step-by-step system, and her creativity-sparking techniques are a powerful complement to broader coaching skills. But I wasn’t sure about making a video.

So I jumped right in! I recorded the video (it only took me 7 tries to get through it without bloopers) and created my own YouTube channel! I named it Twisting Road Travelers to encourage me to come up with more things related to the Twisting Road theme of uncovering your natural gifts and talents, cultivating them, and designing your life and work around them.

I am really excited I took this step. I don’t know what future videos I will add or what direction my ideas might go, but it’s a new way for me to talk to people about authentic living that flows from the core self. That’s what energizes me, so that’s what I need to be doing!

May You Know the Joy of Sharing Your Gifts,

Steve Coxsey

    You are so cool! You do make the course sound pretty enticing. Thanks for posting this video. I hope you do more of them 🙂

    Hey, Darcy

    I decided to go ahead and set up a YouTube channel when I made the video so I have one less obstacle in the way for future videos. I’m working on a training/info product for people new to self-employment to understand basic terms and concepts of marketing. I am thinking of ways to use video to get the word out about that when It’s close to ready.

    But I might just make a video or two for fun before then!

Got something to say?
