    Vid Pro Mom | "It never really occurred to me when I started my business how important it would be for my kids to watch me do it "

    Vid Pro Mom | "It never really occurred to me when I started my business how important it would be for my kids to watch me do it "

    Meredith Marsh started VidProMom.com and the VidProMom YouTube Channel in January 2015 to help families figure out “video stuff” so they can create and capture life’s relivable moments so they can be shared with friends, family, and future generations.

    Along the way, she started helping bloggers with getting started on YouTube. Blogging and YouTube are BFFs in my book, and since she has had a blast doing both, she loves helping others make blogging and video work for them.

    In the podcast she discusses what she has learnt and how that it has impacted her and her family. She talks about some of the lows and highs of her youtube tube channel and highlights how she teaches her kids what is possible by leading an awesome example!
