As an actor, I was on a movie set a week ago and had a conversation with another actor I met, who told me about his challenges in creating a Youtube account and channel.
In a statement he said “i confronted a friend of mine to help me and I was charged a huge sum of money which I couldn’t afford”.
Been a technology enthusiast, I couldn’t watch him throw away his money just like that so I offered my help for free wihout undermining his friends work. Lol
