Thank you so much for making your way to our Patreon page. I have some really big plans for the future and I'm asking you to be a part of it all.

I create weekly videos around the solo travel experience, taking you inside my imperfect adventures to show you that you can travel alone and still have fun! I've been producing travel tips and food/city guides but I want to raise it to the next level and bring you original content!  But I can't do that if I burn out~ that's where you come in.

NEW UPDATE as of May 30th 2020- April 2022:

Due to the coronavirus and the hit its placed on my travel blog and work income, I have decided to take a hiatus to recharge for a couple of months and to work on my e-course.

Extra Reward Perks during this period:

As an extra perks for supporting me during this time and as I cannot post travel videos to my channel for ethical concerns of not wanting to promoting travel during unsafe times, I will be posting :

One Early Access Feature Travel Video of the Month  + Behind the Scenes/Blooper videos (for Camera Operators and up)

Video credits in the monthly feature videos (f
or Directors and up).

 VIP tier members gain access to these videos weeks to months before the travel videos are published on my channel. Some videos are features that were put on pause due to the pandemic.  They all have been afforded to me when Patreon helped me afford a video editor for assistance.

As I am no longer reaching my first goal to hire a video editor and the entire workload falls on me, it is going to be rough to create extra rewards as the above. So this is a temporary gift of special perks.  

Extra reward perks leave when feature videos run out and I am unable to travel or hire editing help. Patreon was created to assist me in affording help as a solo traveler/creator and removing the added burden of finding paid work outside GRRRLTRAVELER.

When the above happens, reward perks revert back to what they originally were to make them managable for me. I may -at any point- choose to substitute this with a livestream or a Zoom event but as my time is limited due to the extra workload and rebuilding of income, this is offered sporadically when I find time. 

Thank you for your understanding.

Is one woman doing it all alone ...enough?

Honestly, I burn out regularly. I create anywhere from:

3-6 videos a month 

- Accompanying written guide/s or blog posts so viewers/readers can follow my breadcrumb trail and social media.

- I also uploading older videos to Facebook twice weekly to give new and old fans an additional travel fix for their week.

My workload changes weekly but it's always packed- if I'm quiet on social media, it means I'm working hard behind-the-scenes or I'm secretly burnt out or that i'm playing with my lovable diabetic dog, Tinker. 

Juggling the creative skills, tools and expenses to implement a travel blog and a weekly YouTube channel about female solo travel takes more time/energy than one person can put out.

Costs: How I afford my blog maintenance and travels

I did not quit my freelance life or part time jobs in the U.S.

YouTube is not my only job nor is it solely how I'm funding my travels! 

Last year, I juggled five different outside jobs to make the income to fuel GRRRLTRAVELER, while also working for GRRRL on a full-time basis and afford filming my travels.

But I passionately believe in what my videos stand for travel inspiration and want to make travel doable for all.  If I can change perspectives and fears about traveling alone, then travelers have one more resource to make their travel dreams happen. And it's become a part of me.

Growing GRRRLTRAVELER is like working a 9-5 cubicle job with overtime hours.  I have ongoing responsibilities to create consistent and quality content. But there's one difference...  I don't get a paycheck for my work hours. I'm my own worst employer.

Without outside support and as GRRRLTRAVELER grows, it's too much of a workload to carry alone.   I'm not sure how long I can keep it up.

Travel filming is my job

Creativity, resourcefulness and research goes into finding and creating the best travel stories, which ultimately empowers viewers with a sense of do-ability.  

I research and coordinate my travels like a film production shoot. Time is money, so each travel moment is used for filming ideas for my channel. In travel mode, I film and coordinate my next day's film plans, logistics and if I connect with a local co-host. Returning home, I give myself a couple of days to sorta crash and then the editing and promoting of my videos begins.

Sometimes I'm fortunate to work with tourism board sponsors who can help out with some of my expenses, provided our work expectations match the partnership and my audiences.

Personally, I want to keep making travel videos and get more of you out there living your travel dreams! But I can't do that all alone. Ideally, I'd love to afford a part time video editor or assistant to help, but I can't invest in that without support.


How can you help?

I'm asking you for your support. 

My Patreon campaign is an ongoing, monthly fan funding campaign to help GRRRLTRAVELER keep making videos and do this for a living. You control how much you want to donate, once or monthly and when to quit. 

If a one-time donation is more comfortable to you, then you can do so on Paypal. The only drawback is that you won't be able to access Patreon rewards. 

There are other ways to support GRRRLTRAVELER:

If you're in a rutty financial situation, please do not donate. 

Share, Like, Comment and let me know you're there and what you liked or didn't about each week's video.

One girl can't do it all alone. She needs help. Support, share and like my campaign and help me inspire women and soloists towards their travel dreams!

Yay!  As a solo filmmaker I film my travels with two cameras and rack up a lot lot lot of footage and being my only editor I'm often backlogged. You're helping me afford a monthly video assistant editor to keep this channel running.
