Matt D’Avella: From $100k in Debt to 2.7M Subscribers

Okdork has an inspiring interview with Matt D’Avella, who has 2.8 million followers on and is the filmmaker behind the popular Minimalism documentary that sold to Netfilx.

Matt talks about how publishing a YouTube video of his minimalist apartment generated a million views and was an inflection point for his career direction. He discovered that creating one high-quality video per week was much more effective at growing his audience than many shorter videos. He decided he was going to be an experimenter rather than an expert, so he published videos of his experiences with such things as taking cold showers, quitting coffee and waking up early.

Matt is a great example demonstrating that it is possible to make a living doing what you love.
