Vlog 224 26th of June 2016 Vlog update

It is the early hours of Sunday morning as I write this and the street outside is still buzzing from the Dublin pride, and in few hours the Irish are going to start to get in the spirit for their next level qualifying game in the Euro 2016.

It has been a strange week in this world of ours. When I was growing up in Finland, we lived with the Iron curtain at our border. My father was a truck driver, so I got to travel a lot from a very young age and grew a life long love for traveling. The thought of not being able to travel was scary. And from a very young age I dreamt about a world where we would not need to worry about borders. It does feel like the world took a big step back this week…

But all we can do is keep living and loving life. Thankfully the internet has made it possible for us all to keep in contact in more ways that I would have ever thought back in the days growing up in Finland.

This weeks song “You can” talks about how we let the fear of failure to hold us back. Don’t forget that you can download the song right now from Bandcamp.

You can

In Monday’s vlog I talk about using music on YouTube and offer some of my songs for fellow YouTubers.

Did I just see Des dance?

I was interviewed for the Break the business podcast. It is a special occasion as since the last time I was on the show, it has become one of my favourite podcasts 🙂

This week’s song put up a bit of a fight. In this vlog I have you along through the songwriting and recording process:

Trouble at the songwriting camp

In the Friday vlog I talk about this weeks song more in detail. But I also all about endorsement deals:

I’m not sponsored by Nespresso

Finally in the Saturdays vlog I talk about photography and videos. I also show you some of my older cameras:
