About The World Ahead

Hi, it's us, Franklin and Danielle! Maybe you've seen one of our YouTube episodes before or just stumbled upon us for the first time. Whatever the case may be, we are super excited that you're on our Patreon page!

What is Patreon?
Patreon is a website where you can help support creators like Danielle and I for our work, engage with a private community of our biggest fans, and connect with us on a more personal level.

We strongly believe in this concept because, without our patrons, running our YouTube channel long-term would simply not be sustainable. We also believe that the ability to engage with our biggest fans directly is incredibly invaluable because you are all, seriously, our biggest motivation to continue putting out more videos.

As our YouTube channel grows, things break, equipment needs to be upgraded, and new tools have to be purchased. The maintenance costs for our website, e-mail newsletter, and licensing of new tools/content/software/etc begin to increase as well. All of these costs begin to add up quickly. Patreon will help us cover these costs so that we can continue to put out more videos.

We also see Patreon as a great way to keep our videos and our website free from the clutter of advertisements and sponsored product interruptions. We'd much rather have you, our biggest fans, help make this all a huge success and keep our content user-friendly. 

We have huge plans in mind but we need your help to get there!

Our main goal is to make The World Ahead our full time job. We love creating videos and sharing them with you! Ultimately, we would like to be able to create more videos with even better quality more often but we can't do that without your help.

  • Pledges are paid out for each video that we create.
  • You can set a monthly limit for the maximum amount you're willing to donate every month.
  • You are free to cancel at any time.

Example: if you pledge $1.00 with a monthly limit of $4.00, you would support us with $1.00 per video we publish until you reach $4.00 for that month.

You're amazing, thank you! We truly appreciate that you're considering joining us on Patreon but please only donate what you can easily afford - even a $1 pledge adds up! If the times get rough, you are free to change or cancel your pledge whenever you'd like.

We'll be there every step of the way to answer your questions, be involved in Patron discussions, and stay in touch with you on a more personal level.

Thank you!
Franklin and Danielle

Whoa! This is a MAJOR goal which, once reached, would mean significant improvements to our channel and videos! We'd finally be able to add some much-needed extras to our filming equipment that would help improve video and sound quality. We'd also be able to save a portion of these funds for emergencies to help cover broken/lost/stolen filming equipment. Higher quality videos and some insurance money to make sure the videos keep coming!
