All About Jared
Jared White

Top vloggers who have reached the pinnacles of their career tell us not to obsess over views and relative performance over time and other metrics of “success” in their creative field. But that got me thinking: what SHOULD we obsess over? How do we know we’re crushing it as content creators? What should success look like?

Here are my four measures of success—they’re by no means the only ones possible, but I believe they’ll serve you well no matter what you’re making as a content creator.

  1. Have Fun
  2. Grow in Your Craft
  3. Be the Content Creator You Wish to See in the World
  4. Streamline Your Pipeline

If you’re pushing hard on all four points, good for you! You’re well on your way to becoming a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious creator. =)

Season 3, Episode 5

Essential Life with Jared is a vlog series all about Portland, the Pacific Northwest, and the philosophy of essentialism. It’s about finding your own way and never walking somebody else’s path. It’s about living a life that’s most meaningful to you.

Thanks to Epidemic Sound for the background music.
