    Could get some exotic bikes and travel the world looking for the hottest bikini bike wash spots, plenty of thirsty dudes would watch that.

    Just remember ... for every person that you know of that is a "success" at this, there are tens of thousands that are not.

    Just because I know how to ride a motorcycle doesn't mean I'll be the next Kenny Roberts. Or Doug Chandler. Or WERA 600SS Novice champ. I'm nowhere near the talent level to be any of the above.

    Those that do it well, didn't seek out permission or encouragement. They just did it. Come Hell or high water.

    @motion, I wish you luck, but also include some tough love by being realistic. Based upon your history here, it's not the answer you are looking for.

    And I see the resident frog still enjoys using the c word. Stay classy!

    You can absolutely tell who didn't bother to read the thread before dropping their two cents worth (?) of wisdom. :crackup::crackup::crackup:

    If you have discarded a long line of ladies climbing over each other to get to the front and have a shot at marrying you, you'd be here dispensing precious advice too.

    @motion from the last 3 years of being "serious" with my channel here are some things that I learned:

    1) just hit record. Don't stress about the audience or the equipment at first. Hit record, upload and see what happens.
    2) if you have no haters, are you even trying?
    3) it takes a few years of CONSISTENCY to become monetized. I'm not there (yet), but I have goals and a plan in place to reach that goal for 2023.
    4) if you don't like the content, your audience won't either. This means you need to LOVE what your uploading for the purpose of creating content with the proper motivation.
    5) this goes with #4: upload what YOU want, not necessarily what the algorithm says is popular. This will keep your efforts original and genuine.

    For the readers of this post: my channel is in my signature and stands for what it is. No regrets or reservations.

    Don't turn a hobby into a job unless you are willing to actually make it your job. Putting any obligations on a fun hobby is an easy way to ruin the hobby.

    I was never able to pull the trigger with my content to go from side-hustle to full-time. And all the effort required and obligations eventually made it less fun and less rewarding. So of course when other new exciting things in life popped up, it was't a difficult choice to decide to "quit".

    Aaron's channel is really enjoyable for those who haven't checked it out yet.

    Oh I forgot something this morning @motion. Include the food. I recall a photo of some meal you posted up previously and having the distinct recollection: I’d like to join him for that meal. There was nothing particularly fancy about it in terms of Michelin stars, but it looked scrumptious and you described it very well.

    I live for the building, construction, and repair videos on youtube. They're awesome

    Maybe try and go that direction

    I picked up followers on YouTube with straight up cellphone work videos and no editing at all

    What's your past ? Figure out what you're good at and do it better than the next guy

    I've followed her for awhile... she is pretty good. Almost too good. She'll do 5 camera angles when filling up with petrol, LOL. She's a bit too granola for me, but I enjoy listening to her honesty and reflections of life.

    LOL reminds me of when I told Ed Sorbo I would kick his ass on little Ninjas. He shows up with Kenny The Ice Man's Ninja 250 and totally demolished me hahaha.

    Ya I think the food should be a major component. I've had some amazing under $10 dinners here in Vietnam in the past week that I think people would love to see. I'm a Tony Bourdain disciple and it would be great to capture 1% of his magic.
