How do you generate a big following on social media? What does it take to make a video go viral? No one knows better than Stewart Reynolds, whose videos have been viewed more than 600 million times. Better known as Brittlestar, Stewart is a prolific producer of online content, releasing videos that make people laugh but also carry a message. Stewart explains how, at the age of 43, he turned making videos online into a way to make a living. He admits that while luck definitely plays a role, it also takes focus, humility, and the ability to stay out of your own way. He also talks about acknowledging anxiety, and the importance of prioritizing your own mental health -- especially as the pandemic changes how we live and how we consume content. And, he shares a story that he says proves the world ended in 2012.
