“The #1 thing that kills self confidence is fear of failure… the way you build confidence is to identify things that scare you and go do them over and over.”
-David de las Morenas, YouTuber, Entrepreneur, Author
On this week’s episode of the Eat Green Make Green Podcast, I sit down with the beast himself David de las Morenas. David, or as his many fans know him by How To Beast, is a YouTuber, entrepreneur, and best selling author. I’ve know David since I was a kid growing up and playing sports together in Hingham, MA and have had a front row seat to his incredible transformation from a skinny shy dude to the beast he now is. We talk about the struggles David used to have with anxiety and self confidence, why he left his tech job to become a personal trainer, how he overcame the fear of starting his own brand and business, how in 2 years he’s grown his YouTube channel from 0 to over 600,000 subscribers, how and when he started to monetize his channel, the different ways he makes money as an influencer, the tips he has for those starting a YouTube channel or brand, how he deals with the haters in the comments, his tips for improving self confidence, and why becoming a beast is all about consistency. I really enjoyed this one and I am in awe at what David has been able to accomplish, he is indeed a beast.
