    You're great at what you do and the storytelling capabilities you have are phenomenal!! I'm visiting NYC for the first time tomorrow!! So excited!

  2. Jill Leflour says

    Brett I think you messed up the framerate while editing some of the clips ! They end up with a bad motion blur.

  3. Ozum Oben Sendil says

    Very inspiring, loved it ! πŸ™‚

  4. Shannon Jamison says

    Brett you truly inspire me. Im only 13, and you made me want to move to NYC to pursue my passion! Keep it up homie!

  5. Shimmer says

  6. J.Olliee Mann says

    Heeleys are back! Hahah.

  7. Adventure Vic says

    This is straight πŸ”₯! Thanks for the constant motivation!

  8. Newbtuber says

    As a small business owner in metro Detroit, the best way to get a job, is to make a job. It’s not all fun and games. Work hours 60+ a week, and you need to be able to deal with rejection, also learn from your mistakes.

  9. Sam Alexis says

    I love the clip of you distracting your own self.

    Why does it look fuzzy other than that it’s amazing or is it an editing effect?

    Hi Brett.. #askbrett will you consider riding that hand rail again? And your intern can film you πŸ™‚

    I'm considering full time freelancing (again). I have a throwaway job so I'm itching for some real work. I make food review videos for a side hustle, but I wanna do more and be my own boss (again).

  20. William Knelsen says

    My favourite thing about being self-employed is being able to say no to projects I am not passionate about. Also, being able to work wherever and whenever I want. Thanks Brett!

  41. Phil Schultz says

    A heads up to any entrepreneur who is nervous about needing health insurance:

    File for medicare. Even if you don't get approved for it, you'll be denied and should still receive considerably lower rates in the health insurance industry. It's a tip my mom helped me out with since she works for the county she lives in.

  42. MoonbearDiedHere says

    Lol. I still want a pair of Heelys. I never had any when I was a kid…also the quality of this video is sharp af but I'm gonna stick with Panasonic gang .

  43. amays86 says

    How does this guy not have a ton of kids littered throughout NYC and cities/countries across the world? He's so god damn smooth I can't even….he must be a strict proponent of wrapping it up EVERY time….
