// ENJOY MY VIDEOS?

My videos no longer have pre-roll ads because I think ads are annoying. That means you don’t have to sit through ads, and it also means I don’t earn anything from the content I put on YouTube. If you want to support me and my channel the best thing you can do is order something from my online store! I make t-shirts and printed products and you’re bound to find something you like ๐Ÿ™‚

In case you want to work at home, then you have to be prepared for the daily grind. We all think that working at home is easy, obviously, the comforts of home is a plus for anyone who has a home-based business. Although a home based business can be relatively comfortable, there is also a lot of hard work involved here. In fact many of those who have home based business actually work harder than those who have a regular office job. They also have to be mentally tougher since it can be difficult at times to get a regular client.
