[VIDEO] Spanish Words I Probably Won’t Use in Costa Rica

I’m not going to lie, I made a handful of videos when I first started and tried to make them somewhat humorous. It’s not actually because I think I’m all that funny, but when I looked at the YouTubers I enjoyed watching (Hannah Hart, Grace Helbig, Tim Helbig, The Vlog Brothers), they all seemed to have a bit of humor in theirs.

Then a friend who I trust said (literally) “you’re funny and you don’t know it. Stop trying to be funny, it’s better that way and actually more funny.” The other point he (and my wife) made was that by trying to make videos about going the remote professional lifestyle funny, I was diluting my sincere passion for helping people do it as well as the power of the posts the writers on the RCTRL blog.

So I deleted most of the videos I’d made and started over with a little more seriousness, BUT not this one. I had too much fun making it, so it stays, funny or not. Enjoy!

I hope you like the video and if you do, please subscribe to the Remote Control youtube channel!
