    China Investor: All My Projects & Earnings (I do too much)

    Since I started this YouTube channel a lot has changed in my work life. Back then I worked as a management consultant at Roland Berger and showed you what the daily life of a management consultant looks like. I made vlogs about my business trips and showed you the best hotels and office views. But I'm now at a point where management consulting for me is not the most important topic anymore. In this video I want to talk about the future of this channel and give you the opportunity to decide with me together what topics I could cover in the future. Therefore I'm going to show you all the different projects I'm working on and give you insights in the earning potentials. What are you interested in? Leave a comment with your opinion! For now I'm out there's not going to be videos anymore.
