This week we had former Big Brother contestant and current web series host of The Weather Channel’s Brain Storm and his own Nickipedia … Nick Uhas! He offered some amazing advice on following the path presented to you and taking opportunities as they come. We decided to ask some of our other favorite YouTube hosts for their best tips and advice, as well as some things people might not know about doing what they do. Here are some of our favorites:
@BenchmarkEmail It’s all about having a platform where one can express his/her views and opinions with everyone and anyone! It’s powerful 😀

@BenchmarkEmail thank you! “Be so good they can’t ignore you”, never ever give up, stay humble, listen, treat fans like gold, & give back 🙂

@BenchmarkEmail I make a list of topics I’m interested in, then I try to figure out how I would explain that to a fellow friend.

@BenchmarkEmail I work, sleep & eat with a small notebook and jot down everything that inspires me. Eventually the ideas start to arrive.

@BenchmarkEmail People who watch don’t know how easy it is to become a YouTube creator. They think it’s difficult but it’s not

Finally, a bonus tip. OK OK … maybe this one was a little tongue in cheek.
@BenchmarkEmail Always respond to Twitter @replies from companies or brands asking for advice.
