This review is from: iPhone Millionaire: How to Create and Sell Cutting-Edge Video (Paperback)
I love to travel! On my trips I take tons of pictures and show them to anyone who will look at them. I talk to anyone who will listen about travel. I'm even a travel agent so I can work in the travel industry. I travel a lot but I don't get to travel as much as I would like. I watch the Travel Channel and a secret part of me wants that job - a job that will pay me to travel. When friends and family say, "Oh! You're going on another trip?" I can say, "Yes! It's my job!" I've been mulling over how to break into the travel video industry for a while now but it just seemed impossible. Recently, I found this book the iPhone Millionaire How To Create And Sell Cutting-Edge Video. Anytime millionaire is mentioned in the title of anything I immediately assume it's a get rich quick scheme and I don't bother, but it was the second half of the title that got my attention so I bought it. I'm very glad I did! This book does three things - and it does them well. First, it really breaks down the television/video industry into manageable bites so it doesn't feel so large and impenetrable. Second, it breaks down making a video into easy, simple terms so it really feels doable. Third, this book is your personal cheerleader. The author does a fantastic job of making you feel like you can do this and you can be successful!
Right from the beginning of the book on page 3 the author talks about all of the millions and millions of hours of video that is needed to "feed" television, phones, computers etc. He asks, "Who is going to make all that video?" Then he answers his question with, "It could be you. It should be you." The book is written with such enthusiasm and encouragement - I believe him. The author doesn't build you up and then let you figure out how to make videos on your own, he gives you step by step easy instructions. He doesn't tell you to invest in expensive equipment, he tells you to use what you probably already have in your closet, your purse or your pocket. Then when you are ready, he gives you the tools you need to sell your videos and make money. I'm telling you, buy this book. If you have a secret dream like I do to make money creating any kind of video - this book is going to be your best tool to achieving that dream!
