Today we are excited to be joined by Sam Holmes. Sam is a sailor and has a YouTube channel to help fund his passion for sailing. While working for Disney during the week, on the weekends Sam discovered sailing. He sailed from California to Hawaii solo. During the trip, he recorded some videos, which he uploaded to YouTube, to share with his friends and as a memory of the experience. He soon discovered others were watching his videos and he was making a little money. Being a good entrepreneur, Sam saw this as an opportunity to fund his passion for sailing. He had saved up some money so he quit his job and started sailing full-time. He kept making videos for YouTube and now has a successful YouTube channel that generates sufficient income enabling him to chase his sailing dreams.
