You’ve started making YouTube videos and people other than yourself have started watching them. So now you’re wondering, when should I consider monetization and put those ads on my videos that everyone else seems to have?
It’s happened. Someone came along and gave your video a thumbs down. You’ve stared at it for hours. You’re obsessed with it. Who would have done such a thing? Why did they do it? Before you decide to throw in the towel and quit YouTube, let’s have a chat.

I can’t tell you what happens on the show until after so check back here later for a behind the scenes look at my time on the show! 🙂
