CS Dojo : I just made a new video to answer some of the questions I got here! In this new video, I respond to comments like: - Why couldn't you have done YouTube on the side?! - You still work for Google through YouTube lol - Why do you have such a huge microphone?! Here it is: https://youtu.be/G1aDNHbTkTY

CS Dojo : Thanks always for watching this video, guys! The central theme I wanted to convey in this video is that “follow your passion” is not always the best advice. Of course, it would be great if you could do what you love every day to make a living, but sometimes it’s just neither feasible nor realistic. For example, I’m really passionate about stand-up comedy. So, when I left Google, should I have pursued it instead of working on my YouTube channel? Probably not. People wanted to watch my educational YouTube videos because they couldn’t find them anywhere else. On the other hand, there are enough great stand-up comedians out there-- so it would’ve been much harder for me to compete with them. So, I believe that a much better course of action (for most people) is to focus on people’s needs-- in other words, a gap in the market. The more VALUE you provide to the world, the more VALUABLE you become. Once you’re in a strong position like that, you can then slowly shift your work so that it aligns better with your passion :) For more on this topic, I’d recommend the book, So Good They Can’t Ignore You: http://amzn.to/2gXHuax

Adik : Wow, that's quite the friends you got there. If I were in their shoes, I would've slapped you in the face and told you to get a hold of yourself.

Gazoon Man : You dont deserve any dislikes dude

raiNH x Trippa : 100K + a year wow. what’s this logic

Bizzaro : Dude good luck you can do it. I was actually working on a $112k per year job until recession came and everything went haywired. Luckily for me , before that happened I poke around and teach myself and learn from others internet marketing business skills which is now what's making me money. I wouldn't say I wouldn't come back to my engineering job when I'm offered a good pay but it made me see the point of view of taking charge of your income. Entrepreneurship is the way to go...Go for it.

Nickk Bisht : 0:59 You posted your first video on 5th March 2016 and 10th video was posted on March-27th 2017 and on Nov 6th you posted this. I doubt if Google really hired you , or may be , later , they realised that they made a big mistake by hiring you hence fired you. In software industry it's not a big deal to hire and fire.

Nickk Bisht : 1:22 your camera setup please?
