And it’s out of the video library I made for attendees about Airtable that was born the Essential Guide to Airtable! I realized that if there attendees are enjoying the lessons, there must people out there who could use them as well! And here we are, 3 years later.
Frankly, I don’t particularly enjoy being on camera or hearing my voice (hopefully it’s not too obvious). But helping friends do less mundane shit made it worthwhile. Today, reading your feedback (positive or negative), answering your questions or seeing my builds being used by real people keeps this going.
With that said, I thought long and hard on how I could be more useful in 2020. More content? Different content? What metrics matter?
I don’t have all of the answers one thing I think I can improve in 2020 is making more private conversations public.
Let me explain. I receive a ton of emails/DM’s from people asking how they can do x or y with no-code. I am always always always always happy to help (when I can) and we often get to the answer! But those great conversations die in my inbox or stay buried in a in a thread. The community doesn’t get any value from that. Maybe, at best, I recycle a few conversations into livestreams.
So, in 2020 I want to make those private conversations public. It’s where I get the most joy, and I’m sure you will too if you had access to them.
Some examples I’ve thought of: What if we had that conversation on livestream? Seriously, do you have a problem you want to work through? Let’s get on a Zoom and I’ll make that conversation available on Youtube after.
With that, I shoot it back to you:
How can I be more useful to you this year?
