Does everybody think I shouldn’t be doing this for a living?' And you have to remember this is one group of people that are in a really bad headspace for some reason. Focus on the people you’re helping and just keep helping them.”

Having a big following, it does have value and it does get your foot in the door to a lot of things. And it’s funny, you kind of have to play these games to get to a certain level. And once you get beyond this level, you can kind of write your own rules.

“Sharing (the messy parts of travel) I think is important along with sharing the beautiful b-roll as well. Because otherwise a lot of people will go travel and think it’s going to be a certain way. And I never want to show that kind of unrealistic perception of a place. But it is hard as a content creator because you also want the video to look nice. So it’s always like this internal struggle figuring out where to be raw and real a...
