Small filmmaker - Advice

First time posting here,
I’m a small filmmaker and I have a YouTube channel. I mainly make videos on how to’s and short films. I use to make travel videos but I feel like that’s not the path where I want to go anymore. Short films is where I want to go. I feel like I’m progressing slow and I should be progressing faster. I think my number one problem is finding actors to film. I feel like I don’t have a lot of experience in filming people. I have friends and have filmed them before but I don’t like asking them all the time. Does anyone have any advice on how to find actors. People who are motivated and willing to act for free?

Here’s the link to one of my videos.

You can try posting to Craigslist under "talent" or look for a Facebook film group in your area where you can post for actors. Maybe even check out a local theater group for some. Once you find some actors they usually know other actors and can also recommend some.
