Hey guys! Here's some basics of me... I'm a physician assistant right now, but I've grown really tired of the everyday grind. Reading the Fastlane has been a confirmation of everything I've been thinking! Trading 5 for 2 is awful! (and for me it's 5.5 for 1.5 half the time) To make matters worse, I still have $100k in student loan debt to pay off. Let me tell ya... going into the medical field is a terrible financial decision, in spite of the common belief that everyone working in medicine is rich! They aren't! They are likely Sidewalkers, and that's why they're perceived as being rich!

I've had a YouTube channel for about 2 years now, but consistently uploading for 1.5 years. This is with my passion of mountain biking, and while making the videos is fun, at this point I'm still not covering my expenses with the little revenue from adsense. It obviously takes more than just ad revenue to go full-time, but I don't even have enough subscribers to begin thinking about that, even with other income sources. I've definitely given some thought to how I can make this a Fastlane business, but I really think I need to change my focus to another topic, or a completely different type of business.

Doing the YouTube channel has resulted in an interest in filmmaking! I've given some thought to turning that into my career, doing things like weddings & luxury real estate, and eventually working with brands. Only problem I see is that is still trading time for money! I may be able to eventually develop an online filmmaking course (contemplating buying one myself right now), but wondering how saturated that market may be in a few years (there are TONS of filmmaking YouTubers right now). But maybe I'm being too negative in my thinking here?

Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome! Looking forward to gaining a lot of valuable insight from this group!
