Here's Everything You'll Get Out Of This

Limited-Time Offer

Join a Weekly Coaching Call with a Think Media Coach

These sessions will be structured to give you weekly training and small group accountability. When you meet with your coach, they will walk you through what you should be working on THIS WEEK, giving you action steps and plans and then answering your questions to overcome any obstacles in your way for that week. This is what will keep your momentum driving forward and will bring clarity to your YouTube plan while we "hold your hand" through the process. This is the next level to having regular accountability and focus on your channel.

Complete Monthly Goal Reports with Coach Review

This goal reporting will give you a structured approach to developing your monthly YouTube plan. You’ll review your previous month results, discuss what you’ve learned, and set new goals for the upcoming month. Your coach will review your plan and evaluate how we can best support you in it. We will check in and see if you’re on the right path to success and on track to hitting your goals.

Participate in Our Quarterly Planning Events

These will be additional special events with Sean Cannell and Think Media Experts to celebrate wins and set ourselves up for success in the upcoming quarter. You know how we like to celebrate - with camera and computer giveaways, free tech, and more! We get to reward members who are staying on track with their goals and remaining consistent with their channels. Bonus training, coaching, and more will all be available.

Receive a Comprehensive Channel Audit Every 6 Months

Every 6 months, after you've had a chance to implement your coaching feedback and create new content, you will get a detailed channel review from your coach. This will help you assess and review the content you've made with your channel, where there's room for improvement, and what you need to prioritize next.

Level Up Your Videos with Thumbnail Office Hours

Each week we have designated office hours where our specialty coaches will be made available to assist YOU. If you’re working on a thumbnail, there’s no better way to level up your skills than with one of our coaches giving you in the moment feedback. Plus you'll take away design tips and tricks from watching other thumbnail edits to apply to your own creations.

Tap into Our Tech Office Hours

We don't expect all video creators to be tech experts. There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to learn how to use brand new pieces of equipment in this content creation journey. Our specialty coaches are available to assist you along the way. If you’re trying to level up your gear, but not sure what to get next, we’ll strategize your next move and help you troubleshoot tech questions so you can make even more content faster.

"This is just going to be a waste of time..."

When I started shooting videos for my church youth group in 2003… I never believed it would have turned into this.

2 Million Subscribers. WHOA. 

It took over 12 years to get here, and it’s been a bumpy road of HIGHS and LOWS.

When Think Media started, the whole nation was suffering from an economic crash. My wife and I were losing our home and defaulting on our rental property. The church I was working at fell apart after a scandal where senior leadership stole money. And the most terrifying of all, my wife almost died from a chronic illness and botched surgery.

Loaded with over $600,000 of debt and having nothing to show for it - I turned to the one thing I knew best. Video.

At that point, I had a small YouTube channel, and most people would see the first Amazon affiliate payout I made of $2.12 as a waste of time… but I saw it as a seed of hope for the future.

With no certainty or roadmap for how YouTube worked… I committed to learning the game of online video and online business.

All based on the simple hunch that this thing would be here for the long haul.

"This is going to be really hard." 

The side-hustle-struggle is real. During those early years I worked in food service at a burger joint and an espresso stand, I led the media department of a church in Las Vegas, I was a pastor for a year and half -- and the whole time I’d do video and photography jobs on the side for freelance clients. 

That didn’t leave much time for YouTube. But I stayed focused and used whatever extra time and energy I had to post videos and study. 

2015 brought on brand new struggles, at that time I was earning my living from working with freelance clients -- but in one month I was fired by all-of-them losing 90% of my families income in a matter of weeks.

So I had a choice to make: Look for new clients OR go all-in with my YouTube channel and see if I could do this full-time.

It was November 2015. I had built up Think Media to 16,000 subscribers. And I made the decision, excited and scared to death. I’m going all-in.

I didn’t know exactly what it would look like at the time, but I knew I needed to find a way to make YouTube work for me no matter what life threw at my family.

"This can work for you."

Today, Think Media has grown into an entire company staffed with 20+ employees all on a mission to help other people just like me go full-time on YouTube.

So if you can relate to my story at all, I firmly believe this class is for you.

Give me an hour, and I’ll show you the latest strategies to create and grow a thriving YouTube business.

You ready?

The first step to joining me on this journey is signing up for this free class. We can meet each other and I can teach you a ton of my process just in this first hour.

Plus, I have some free bonus resources to help walk you through each step of this process.

When you join this webclass, I'm also going to send you resources each week to help you get to your first or next milestone.
