You want to get started with video and online courses but you're not sure what you need. 

When I started my online business I definitely fell into the I can do #allthethings AND I learned how to procrastiperfect things... I would literally perfect things so much that it would turn into procrastination. DO NOT DO THIS. Done is better than perfect!!

I quickly learned to just do the thing and use what I had. When I first started doing video, I used my iphone propped up on some boxes to get the right angle and that was fine. Over time I invested in more gear so just look at what you can use now and when you're ready and your budget allows for it then you can buy more okay?Remember, done is better than perfect. 

Do what you can with what you have where you are via hazelhaven.com
