In my previous post (here) I gave you a taste of my version of a healthy addiction called YouTube lol. I seriously just had too much to say and did not want to cram everything into one post. It’s long enough as it is. I hope you enjoyed reading it and excited to find out more as I continue.
Steve Booker and Dave Erasmus friends of Louis and Ben also accompanied them to the meet-up they have Youtube Channels as well but don’t do daily vlogs too often. Dave is very much into music his entrepreneur and did a few Ted Talks (mind blown, amazing guy, doing good!) I have dubbed Steve as Cool dude Silent Steve lover of shiny things lol. He often features in Louis Vlogs that’s how everyone knows him and started his own channel too.
Louis and Steve joint forces and created an amazing clothing line called, Find the Nomad. Louis lives the most nomadic life known to man I often wonder if he ever sleeps. That’s where the name came from. They launched the website while we were at the meet-up, that was pretty cool too see how excited they were about this. Hard work and all the late night Starbucks meetings paid off. They did an impromptu photo-shoot on the beach a few days earlier to get pictures for their website and Caspar Lee was part of it. He’s currently shooting Spud 3 with Troye Sivan another Youtuber now actor. Do yourself a favor and watch the Spud movies if you have not, they very good and a laugh and a half.
Check out Find the Nomads (here) get yourself a cheeky tee too! You won’t be disappointed.
I am still tripping on the fact that I actually got to speak to Louis (jumping for joy inside). I told him why I enjoy watching him and I could see he really appreciated my kind words. I also told him that my friends don’t understand my obsession with YouTube and they continuously tell me, they don’t know who you are. “I’m always like, they my friends what you talking about lol “(Yes saying that aloud to Louis sounded better in my head than it did in real life lol) He was sweet though he laughed and said we are friends now. (That awwww moment)
Ben Brown is fairly new to the YouTube community being Athlete; 2 x Kayak World Champion. Amateur surfer and Travel addict! It was his first meet-up and I am sure there will be plenty more to follow. He is a very cool guy laid back and chilled and what an athlete you will be blown away, if you see what this guy can do. His latest marathon he tackled was the “Mighty” Berg River Marathon check it out his channel. I got to chat to him too and congratulated him on finishing the Berg. He was pretty impressed that I watched his videos and know how many Gopro’s he has lost(about 5 to date, tear tear.) You can see he enjoys putting his vlogs together by the cool editing and filming. He spends about 4 hours editing everyday.Now that’s pure dedication to say the least.
I also met Jess Schmidt a young girl who randomly tweeted Louis after seeing a picture of him and the gang on Instagram and invited them to dinner and they went. (How cool right.) She is also an aspiring YouTuber and has loads of potential, very awesome ,young talented girl.(Keep an eye out for her)
To everyone attention is always nice but I think the fame found Louis compared to some people online searching for fame. That’s why he has remained humble and he has been through many life experiences, to make him they guy he is today and that goes for his friends too. This was just my observation of Louis and a true inspiration to many and all the fans that came out were genuinely nice too. The person he is he has attracted the same sort of people in his fans and that’s amazing. His friends that were with him are great lads and was awesome to meet them all. I wish them nothing but success for the future!
I could go on forever about the world of YouTube, I studied Marketing so it is extremely intriguing how this has just picked up all across the world. I hardly watch TV. It was so awesome to speak to other viewers who watch the same things I do and for once understand my obsession lol That sounds like a new post for a new day…
