Hi Douglas. I'm doing well. Thank you.
What operating system are you using? This should work in unix based terminals.

You can also do this in 2 steps. First, you can set the environment variable by just entering TWITCH_SIGNING_SECRET=purplemonkeydishwasher into the terminal. You can check it my then entering ECHO $TWITCH_SIGNING_SECRET in the terminal and it should respond with purplemonkeydishwasher. Then you can run node index.js.

I hope this helps. I'm working on an update coming soon where I have it running in a Netlify function.
