Here’s what Owen has to say for himself:
Define Your Channel in 5 Words
Video Marketing Tips for Businesses Owners
Why did you start making videos?
I grew up watching Steve Martin and wanted to be just like him. My dad came home with a video camera when I was 8 years old and I haven’t stopped making videos since. I suppose sketch comedy is what really lights my fire.
What does a typical work day look like for you?
Every morning I follow a strict routine that fills my brain with blood and oxygen. After that, I am either hosting a live stream show or teaching a private or group workshop. Then it’s time for lunch and a mental health break before I record courses for the Video Marketing School or write/produce videos for my channel.
Where do you get inspiration for your videos?
Classic comedy - I Love Lucy, Charlie Chaplin...
Conferences are also creative breeding ground - hanging with Derral Eves (who is a legitimate genius), Nick Nimmin, Roberto Blake... these guys really get me thinking in new ways.
What equipment and software do you like to use for your videos?
I’m using the Canon M50 now and I use a variety of software from Belive.tv to Vmix, TubeBuddy, and Camtasia. I’m also a beast at Adobe Premiere. Some say that if Bruce Springsteen was a Photoshop Pro, I’d be Johnny Cougar Mellencamp :)
How do you get past mental roadblocks?
Watching movies. Also failure.
How do you celebrate milestones/success?
Loud music, cold beer, and creative writing.
I only like to celebrate events that I am able to control. My channel has been growing steadily over the last year or two because of past momentum, but my hypothesis haven’t really affected change so when I hit 47K subs, I didn’t really celebrate. However, when I intentionally try to accomplish something and I am able to achieve that thing (watch time, traffic, views), it’s time to party.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
As a nationally recognized leader in the business community with a weekly recurring presence on national TV.
Which YouTubers do you like to watch?
Grant Cardone, 5 Min Crafts, King of Random, Evan Carmichael, Nick Nimmin, Alex Berman, Andrew Kan
If you were a bird, what kind of bird would you be?
A Pterodactyl, bitches.
