How To Become A Traveling Journalist

So you want to travel the world writing for a living? Watch this first.

So you want to travel the world writing for a living? This is how I did it (along with advice about the gear you need, etc):

I’ve started experimenting with doing our YouTube Q&A sessions live, and after working out some things it seems to be working fine. Doing these sessions like this, rather than recording, editing, and then publishing, saves large amounts of time — time that I don’t really have right now. So look for a live weekly Q&A coming from me, and if you have any questions feel free to ask them in the comments below.
