    Well damn, that's gotta be terrifying...Sorry to hear about this

    True, true, but I'm not Casey Neistat lmao and at this point I don't really see myself succeeding on this platform, I do it more for fun at this point so personally I think it's just easier to keep these lives separate.

    Thanks for the comment on my video! :) But yeah, it's definitely possible, but personally I know I make some jokes that might just be considered offensive by some, and although I'm not too worried about that part, I just don't want them affecting my actual life, and I'm at a point where I do have to be careful

    Yeah, definitely agree with this.

    Hey Leo, I totally understand how you feel because I'm currently going through that with my channel as I am still figuring out how to move forward. I think it all comes down to you figuring out how much you want to do this Youtube thing and if your passion for it means more than anything else then just go for it. I think you are overthinking with future job prospects because if you are providing value in your content and making other people's lives better then it will only be seen as a good thing.

    I'm not going to sugar coat it, starting a channel is hard but you have to keep the end goal in mind at all times. Put out good content, optimise your thumbnails and figure out how to do SEO so your videos get ranked higher. With good content and more eyes seeing your stuff the only way for you is up. Start off by making a video on what your channel is based on and who you are and from there pump out good content.

    Patience, hard work, being geniune, providing value, staying motivated and paying it forward is the best to go about starting off on youtube (from my point of view at least). I hope this helped you and got you pumped up. I'm all ears for a chat anytime. Good Luck, I look forward to seeing you put out content and growing :thumbsup2:

    What does having a job have to do with your channel? Are you going to be posting morally questionable and/or illegal content? If not, I don't think you have anything to worry about.

    Hey, thanks man! It's a struggle, but honestly I'm starting to kinda like this new start. I kinda wanted to create separate identities for my real life and my youtube.

    Nah, I know I'm prob overthinking this whole thing but I'd rather not risk things happen in the future. My stuff isn't morally questionable or illegal, but it's pretty inappropriate at times and extremely unprofessional

    I think you are being sensible. I read recently here on this forum a few weeks ago that a forum member was asked for their channel to be terminated by their employer as they found their channel. I dont really understand why but its a risk not worth taking in my opinion.

    I prefer to keep all my channels secretive so not to affect anything I do in my 'normal' life.

    Yeah, I took a look at it. Apparently you can't legally get fired for this stuff, with some exceptions, but I don't even have a job to get fired from yet lmao
