What does it take to be successful on YouTube? How many subscribers do you need and how many years would it require? Studies show that over 95% of YouTubers never make enough money to rise above the poverty line, but Trevor James, our guest today, has managed to make YouTube a full-time expat business. With over a million subscribers and 184 million views under his belt, he's making a comfortable living being a full-time expat YouTuber.
This week, Trevor and I talked about the following aspects of his business:
How he chose the YouTube channel as his primary business platform What helped him create a name and a presence and ultimately led to him leaving his career and back-up plan Why he has still never hired any other employees (besides his wife!) How he generates content for the places he's never been and how he finds the best local food The ways he plans to expand and grow over the coming years If you'd like to learn more about Trevor James, you can visit his websites here:
