Episode Info:

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
