Ep 202: Casey Neistat – How to Get to 13 Million YouTube Views
January 31, 2015•39 min
Casey Neistat is an American film director, producer, and creator of popular YouTube videos.
While he has worked in almost every aspect of video making, he tells James that YouTube is his absolute passion.
He chose to leave mainstream media for YouTube, which is the opposite of most YouTubers' aspirations.
They talk about creative "ideas." Casey tells James that ideas matter very little – it's execution that matters.
They talk about risk, too, and Casey has a great take on it. He tells James, "The most dangerous lifestyle anyone can live is the lifestyle where you play it safe."
Casey probably disagrees with James more than anyone else James has ever interviewed.
