    I have zero aspiration to do what you do, But I truly enjoy watching someone who enjoys what they do so much which is how someone becomes a master at their trade. Seems to me that's what it takes to be a true legend in their trade, and honestly your outlook on life and your humble treatment of what I would consider fans is a dead give away of your inner being. That's why I subscribed and why I enjoy your videos, Thanks brother.
