Wow! You made it to my Patreon site!!! I'm honestly a little surprised, humbled, but truly honoured :) 

What is the NotSoAncient ChineSecrets Show?
What started on Facebook Live as "Dave Daily" has become the NotSoAncientChineSecrets show!   I broadcast live weekly on Facebook here.

What's the show about?  
I started the show as a place where I can share tools, tips and advice just like I do with my closest friends and family. Through the years I've learned to embrace my inner-Geek-people-pleaser self and, through the show, aim to add laughter, encouragement and enlightenment to your life in 3 main areas that are dear to me:
  1. photo & video
  2. food & fitness and 
  3. family & faith
Why are you on Patreon?
There's no denying I'm both a perfectionist and a people pleaser. I hate letting people down and have high expectations of myself and my work. Not the best of combinations when starting a new format livestream show. Case in point: I invested every waking hour for two months of my life into creating and producing what has become the NotSoAncientChineSecrets Show. The reward of helping people fix their health problems (bad knees, back pains and diet), choose the right photo/video gear, and become a better parent and person has been deeply gratifying. In it's short life, I'm honestly amazed and LOVE what the show has done for people and see so much potential for where it can go. But sadly I've also come to realize I can't continue to produce the shows when "real" work needs to be done to pay the bills. During a recent Live show, a friend suggested creating this very Patreon page to allow people to support the making of it and continue the sharing of more NotSoAncientChineSecrets.

ChineSecret Goals - Laugh . Learn . Love 
Though I don't take myself too seriously, I take my work - and this show - very seriously. I truly want to create value in every episode and want each show to resonate in 3 ways:
  1. Laugh: Because life is too short to be grumpy
  2. Learn: as a professional photographer, media Geek, and international speaker/teacher, whether photography and film is your profession or passion (or both!), learn from my mistakes, bad purchases, research, special guests, and creative thinking
  3. Love: creating true community and authentic engagement is something I appreciate most about the show and how the platform of Facebook Live has truly become a "social" media more than any other
With your help I want to share more NotSoAncientChineSecrets to help your business, hobby, health, family and faith grow and develop in meaningful ways. And if there's enough like-minded NotSoAncient Patrons, I would love to produce more shows - bi-weekly? Daily?? With more support I would also love to invite more guests - both live and remote - to dive deeper into topics that matter. And who knows? Maybe one day we'll take the show to you on the road or on a world tour :)

The chineSecrets show is my biggest passion project and, with your help, I want to devote more time and effort to research, write, and produce shows worth watching that add value to your business, health and life at large.

Thanks for being here and whether or not you can contribute to the show, I promise to do my very best to make you proud :)

God bless and see you in the next Show!!

Cool beans! $5 buys me a couple of Tim Hortons coffees every month!  Thank you for fuelling my caffeine addiction AND the show - double double trouble.  I'll also be polling my Coffee Buddies to prioritize upcoming topics so I can devote my energy and time to the topics that matter to you most.
Chinese Chicken Dinner
$10 or more per month 0 patrons
True story: recently we traveled as a family and wanted to do it on the cheap.  So every night we picked up a $10 roasted chicken at the local grocery store, peeled off the meat, then made chicken stock with the bones in our hotel room.  
RICE POINTS!!  
Thank you for helping me feed my family.  No, seriously: it's what's for dinner.

I'm not saying that such a society exists, but if there *were* such a society, you'd be part of it. And you'd have exclusive info and group chats that you'd be part of. Thanks for wanting to be part of something bigger ... And secretive. I'll be asking my chineSecret Society members for direct input to drive the direction of NotSoAncientChineSecrets in topic, format and taking them behind the scenes as well.
