HEATHER JUST CREATE
I was working at a school for grades 5-12 when I became increasingly aware of a divide between those who understood digital media’s potential for connection, communication, and collaboration, and those who did not. Being born in 1985, I grew up alongside the internet and I used communication technology throughout my 10 year marketing & communications career. It became clear to me that the key to success in an ever digitally connected world is digital literacy. So in April 2016, I quit my job to start Sharespark Media, the movement to educate and empower people to utilize digital media to achieve meaningful goals. I also decided to document my journey through vlogs on YouTube.
Creating digital media and sharing my story online empowered me to discover my voice, explore my passion, and connect with others in ways that nothing else ever had. YouTube and other platforms allowed me to combine my passion, interests, and expertise to create my full time job of helping people achieve their goals.
Through Sharespark Media and Zero to YouTube Hero, I hope to teach as many people as possible how they can utilize digital media to share their stories and spark their potential. #SHARESPARK
HeatherJustCreate is a note to myself that in this NEW MEDIA RENAISSANCE, the best way to connect, communicate, and collaborate is to CREATE new media. Heather, JUST CREATE MORE!

JUST CREATE MORE: A note to myself
It took me almost 18 months to create THIS particular vlog... About a year and a half into my journey, I decided to throw a "Progress Party." As an entrepreneur, it often feels like I am treading water which is why I wanted to acknowledge how far I've come. I created this video to show at the Progress Party. I can't believe all of the incredible places that my journey has taken me. It's been a long road and I am so proud of myself for never giving up. Thank you to everyone who has supported me. I wouldn't be here without you.
ZERO TO YOUTUBE HERO IS LIVE
Check out my online course, Zero to YouTube Hero, which will walk you through the entire process of creating a thriving YouTube channel from scratch! It's an awesome course - I'm very proud of it :D
vlog.001 - The Beginning
I uploaded my very first vlog on April 16, 2016. I had no idea what I was doing or where my journey would take me but I wanted to give myself a chance. Everyone starts from zero - this was mine.
WINNING THE LOTTERY
Yeah seriously, I won the lottery.
SHARESPARK TV WORLD PREMIERE
This is the very first episode of Sharespark TV, streamed in September 2017. Tom and I were very nervous but oh so excited. We had a great discussion about online news and our studio looked awesome. Tune in to a future episode on Facebook!
This was the first trailer video that I created for my channel. I made it after uploading my 34th vlog, about 4 months into my vlogging journey.
