This conversation with Pete shares insights into his background, processes, tools, and growth. Pete gives advice to hobbyist makers and full-time content creators, alike. From woodworking to concrete and metalworking and far beyond, Pete Sveen of DIY Pete has been producing do-it-yourself YouTube video and blog content tutorials for a number of years now.

Pete, as noted in his Maker Miniview interview, shares that every project can be accomplished by taking it one step at a time. He is a big promoter of this and encourages others to get out there and make things, because sometimes the hardest part can simply be actually starting. Break things down and take it step-by-step.

Pete’s favorite medium? YouTube.

Pete’s biggest risk? Initially pushing past doubt and fear through putting his content out into the world.

Be vulnerable, let go of any doubts and share your creations with the world.
