I didn’t choose YouTube. The customer did.

I didn't choose YouTube. You did.These days, it’s very easy for you to look at what I’m doing and say how lucky I am to have gotten on board with video content early. How it was smart for me to create videos on YouTube so I could build an archive that would keep people watching for hours.
