Who Am I?
My name is Richard and I'm the founder of Improvement Pill. When I was very young, I told my mom that I wanted to become a teacher. She said, " No, teachers don't make any money." And that was that.

I started this channel 2 years ago because I never lost that passion for teaching. I wanted to share my knowledge and change the lives of people from all around the world. I started this channel as a hobby. But now, YouTube plays a huge part in my life and I spend a large chunk of my free time thinking about what I should create next. 

The problem is, YouTube alone is not very sustainable. I live in New York City so the ad-revenue I receive for my videos can't even cover the rent. This forces me to focus most of my energy on other projects that are more profitable. My dream is to create helpful content for you guys full time. That is what this Patreon is for. By supporting the channel here you are not only making my life way less stressful but you'll actually help me produce more content for YouTube

5/20/2018 - IMPORTANT UPDATE!!! I always strive to be 100% honest with my fans and supporters. In the past couple of months, I've been able to monetize the YouTube channel in a way that is much more sustainable. In fact, things have been going pretty well for me, and I can proudly say that I've achieved financial freedom (for the most part). The truth of the matter is, that I no longer need your help as much as I did last year. You no longer need to be my Patron.

A lot of you have sent me messages thanking me for all the value I've brought into your life. You guys say you want to help out, and I understand. But as of right now your money is better spent investing in yourself. Purchase books, courses, and programs that will help you develop into a better person. You can thank me by becoming successful yourself!

So to all of you who've supported me over the last year,
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart and I wish you the best of luck on your ventures!


P.S. :If you're interested in making more money you can also join my mailing list: http://bit.ly/2lXZ8Qw Here, I will send you information about the skills you need to develop in order to achieve financial freedom ( just like how I did ;) )




What Will I Do With Your Money?
- Pay For Rent/Bills: Living in New York City is impossible with the amount of money that YouTube gives me on a monthly basis. So most of your money will go to paying the bills and keeping a roof over my head. This way, I'll be able to make more videos for you guys!

- Videos Every Week: Having to worry about my finances often distracts me from the channel. By becoming a Patron, you help take some of this pressure off of my shoulders. I've tried to create a high quality video every week, but I often have to switch my focus in order to pay the bills. If I get enough support, I'll be able to produce 1 video every week without fail. Who knows, at a certain point, I might even be able to do TWO!!!

- Increased Quality: I've been making these Whiteboard Animations for close to 2 years now and I feel like there is much room for improvement. With your help I can get some additional help from artists/animators to increase the overall quality of the channel. This means more entertaining videos that are more visually appealing to watch!

- Create Free Courses: I spent the last 6 months working on a course called Tamed. Originally, I planned on selling this course at a high price point. This would have relieved me of the financial pressure that I'm currently under. BUT THEN I realized that if I sold this course at a high price point, hundreds of thousands of people around the world would not have access to it. So I decided to make this course 100% Free. By becoming a Patron for the channel you'll allow me to create additional courses for absolutely free!

- Do Cool Things: One of my dreams is to travel to different cities around the world and help people face-to-face. I've always wanted to set up surprise meetups in cities and hang out with my viewers, share a drink with them, and listen to their stories. Becoming a Patron for this channel will help make this dream come true. Who knows? Maybe one day we'll meet in person! 



What's Next For The Channel?
I've always had a ton of ideas flying around in my head. So here are some of the ones I've put the most consideration towards:

- Interviewing Extremely Successful People: Living in New York City has it's downfalls, but oh are there benefits. One of which is the fact that some of the most successful people in the world like to visit the city that never sleeps. I've always wanted to sit down with the great minds of our time and pick their brains. In order to do so, I'd need the money to rent out a studio space (which is incredibly expensive in NYC) and hire a camera man. 

- Livestreams: Hosting livestreams is something that I've always wanted to do. I'll be able to answer your questions live, on camera, to the fullest of my knowledge. I think this will be a great tool because it makes the advice more personal. If we can get the funds to start doing this, I will give priority to my patrons for their questions!

- Motivational Videos: I've always wanted to create high production videos that leave it's viewers with a sense of awe and inspiration. I've always admired videos with amazing speeches overlapped with amazing footage. In order to do this I'll need the resources to get the equipment and hire the manpower to film. 



A Message To My Patrons!
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your support is the only reason I'm able to spend my time on the one thing I love most. Teaching. If I was born just 10 years earlier, my mom would have been right. I wouldn't be able to live comfortably as a teacher. Instead, I'd probably be spending the majority of my time in some office cubicle wasting away. Barely getting by. 

But because of you, I can live my dream! You are the reason I'm alive!
