I make videos to raise money for my kids’ college education. I have 3 kids and plan on spending the next 10 years contributing to the public body of knowledge and helping you learn! If you’d like to give back via a microscholarship, click here:
Instead of saving for my kids’ college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you’ve learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please share the video.
