I'll answer this a little cryptically. I'm in sales and I'm also a serial entrepreneur. I learned a few years ago not to reveal too much about yourself in online forums when someone traced me, stalked, me, and got me fired from a job and also cost me my second business. We'll just say that I've built 2 businesses from scratch. The first one made 6 figures for 3-5 years before the economic crash took it out in 2009 and the second one was approaching $50k in revenue in it's second year before I was cyber-stalked. I attempted a 3rd business in 2013 that never got off the ground. I've been studying YouTube marketing, and my second business was in website development and social media marketing, so I'm hoping to combine those into a successful business here in late 2016 and early 2017, starting with Minecraft gameplay and expanding after that into other games (all sim-based) that interest me. (I don't play a wide variety of games, but I really like Prison Architect and I love OpenTTD.)What do you do out in the real world JaRyCu?
For some reason Minecraft got my attention back in 2014 for a brief minute, but I didn't know what to do with it and gave up on it a month later. I came back to it last August, discovered modding in September, then FTB in October and have alternated between MC and WoW ever since. I like WoW since it has a lot of character immersion. My main character there is a human warlock, and I really get into character. I play her as an evil wretch who hates everyone, including all of her own guildmates, and they all love it. (I also give away gold and run low levels through whatever they need, so she has a soft side to her.) I have every class in the game at 100+ (I'm slowly working on getting them to 110 since Legion launched, but none are there yet.) Each of the classes that I like, I've developed a personality for that character that's different from the rest. They all share a very egotistical trait, though, which I suspect comes from my own personality.
I've spent hundreds of hours over the last year watching a lot of the Hermit Crafters, Ethos, and even a little of that Captain Sparklez guy (is that his name?), not to mention WTFG33ks, Gaming on Caffeine, and Direwolf20. I started watching them just to see what you could do in FTB Infinity regular, and then I started watching them to see how they broadcast, what they choose to show off, and what type of tone they used to draw in viewers.
Having said that, I expect my first 10-20 videos to completely suck while I find my voice. In the real world, I'm almost a master comedian, playing off of everyone. That makes me very good in sales, and I am always told how good I am at relating things in simple, understandable terms to others. That's the tack I intend to take with my YouTube channel once I start it.
That's a lot more than intended to type when I started this, but the words started flowing when my fingers touched the keyboard. Hopefully it lets you know a little about me.
