YouTube, the video –sharing site that is owned by the titan Google, has stood the test of time as far as far as modern social media is concerned. YouTube is a wonderful place to have a few laughs on, learn new things and watch step by step tutorials for your everyday problems, or listen to your favorite artist and see their newest music video. I will primarily go over the learning/education side of the YouTube.
A few weeks ago, I made an Instagram post about whether you use YouTube for entertainment or education and if that ratio is more to the entertainment side you should reconsider the use of your time. The amount of information I have learned from watching YouTube videos is astounding and here are some channels you should check out that I personally follow.
For all things entrepreneurship and business related I turn to Patrick Bet-David on the Valuetainment channel. As the name suggests his goal is to provide value to the viewer drawing from his own personal success in entrepreneurship and business. They recently took a break from YouTube for a bit and revamped the objective and mission of the channel and the information he brings to the viewers is incredible. If you are at all interested in entrepreneurship or business I highly recommend checking him out. He provides great content and worksheets to the viewer to aid in self-improvement.
The next channel two channels I follow talk about the stock market mainly. Nate O’Brien is a young investor that brings ambition and passion to his channel as he talks about investments and relates well to my generation and age group. The other channel I follow for stock market education is the Financial Education channel. Jeremy from the Financial Education channel has written two books that I have read and has several programs that educate its users on the stock market, passive income, and options trading among other things. I would highly recommend these two channels if you are interested in stock investments, budgeting, passive income etc.
The last two channels revolve around real estate, motivation, and entrepreneurship. Grant Cardone is a world renown sales expert and has developed a real estate company with over $750 million in assets currently. Meet Kevin is about Kevin a real estate agent in California that provides value to the viewer by revealing the tips and tricks of real estate and exposes lies and clears confusion said by other “experts” in finance and real estate, these include Grant Cardone, Dave Ramsey and several others. These two channels help educate me on real estate and motivate me for any side hustle endeavors I have.
I primarily watch these YouTube videos in binges or if I am seeking information on a subject. Rather than watching tv or Netflix or YouTube for entertainment purposes I watch these education-based channels and learn more to further develop myself. Only problem is there are never enough hours in a day as you can see from the subscription box up above. I’m sure I am missing some great education-based YouTube channels out there so if you have any suggestions on who to follow please let me know!
