I’ve started two new blogs that readers of this personal blog of mine may be interested in.

The first one is RV Living Guide. This is an informational blog providing advice for first time RV owners and seasoned veterans of the open road. As I have lived full-time in an RV for several years I have a lot of knowledge on this topic, and have thought about starting a blog like this but never got around to it until now.

The second blog is The Millennial Gentleman, which is a men’s lifestyle and entertainment magazine blog written for men born after 1980 who seek to live a wonderful life of gentlemanly elegance and adventure.

These two blogs are part of a larger project I am developing with some friends. We’ll be launching an online educational course teaching people how to develop YouTube channels into a full time business. While Zenither is my primary focus it is still a pre-revenue company, and historically I have supplemented my income from sales of my books (such as The Lean Channel and How to Start Your Own YouTube Network) as well as consulting via my page at http://www.startyourownmcn.com/ but since covid I haven’t been able to do as much consulting. So I decided to take my older writings (most of which are from my books, my older blog articles and newer writings I have made for consulting clients) and transform them into a new course on how to build a successful YouTube channel that will allow a person to live full time from earnings generated by running a channel.

These two new blogs will be tied to YouTube channels and used as examples of how the techniques and strategies I teach can be used to launch a new channel. Through them I will demonstrate the kind of growth a new channel using these methods can expect.

So if you’d like to check these blogs out feel free to do so.
