Caleb Wojcik interview

What inspires you to keep making things?

"What inspires me most to keep making things is the power of video. My underlying goal with all the work I do through educating people how to use their cameras is to give more people the ability to share whatever message or story they want to tell.

Video is better than audio, written, or photos to really connect what you're trying to say online with the person on the other end. So whether you're trying to convince someone to buy something or just trying to bring awareness to something happening in the world, video is the strongest way to do that.

Every person I help choose the right camera and learn how to use it, that's another person that can have their voice heard, and share their message with the world in a better way."

What one piece of advice would you give to other makers?

"Strap in, it is going to be a bumpy ride. If you want smooth sailing, give the reins to someone else and get a regular job. Just don't complain when it all comes crashing down because you weren't in control.

Being a creative, running your own business, and taking risks will have ups and downs. You may have a great year followed by a year you have to use debt to get by some months. Dig in, stay in the trenches, and keep fighting."
