Welcome to my Patreon page. My name is Eric, I'm committed to creating health and lifestyle content to help you fight fat, live longer and enjoy your life. I'm taking my life and health into my own hands and sharing what I learn with others on YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Google Plus, and Facebook. I want to share the struggle of the influence of big business on our health and build a following of people who have access to the best practices in maintaining long-term health while minimizing health care costs over the long term without trying to sell products or services that we don't need. 

The purpose of this Patreon campaign is simple; to reduce my dependence on ad revenue and affiliate marketing and keep my message pure, without outside influence so that I can create content based on what's right for you, my viewers, not what helps fund the channel. I also want a more direct relationship between myself and my most avid supporters.

Right now, I get paid by AdSense based on how many people watch ads on my videos. Since I'm a small YouTuber, basically that means I'm not getting paid. While I have revenue coming in, I spend more each month than I actually make. If my channel grows, what that means is, someone tries to sell things to my audience before every video they watch and I get an ad commission.

That doesn't sit right with me because many of the powers that be who spend money to convince you to buy their products, which may not be to the benefit of your health, will have their ads on my channel. I would much rather have my income come directly from the people who enjoy my content and are serious about their health, rather than some company trying to take advantage of our time spent together each day.

So for every $10 per month that you, the audience, pledge through this Patreon page, I'm going to remove ads from one video per month. $10 is certainly more than the average video earns in ad revenue, but I need to leave room for growth as the views on the channel increase and ad revenue increases with it.

That's the reward. Ad-free content. No one trying to get between you and the content I share with you. 

Larger contributions will be helpful in making my full intentions for this project to come to life. I don't have a lot of disposable income that I'm willing to take away from supporting my family and planning for my children's future. My big heart and ideas always seem too small for what my income allows me to do in life. I'd love to travel to places where people are doing amazing things with their life to do inspirational interviews.

Interviews with people like Dr. Bert Herring or Dr. Jason Fung are on the short list but more importantly than the doctors, I want to interview their patients. I really want to do a cross country tour where I visit people who have seen extraordinary results using intermittent fasting to change their lives for the better. 

Of course I'll turn to you, the patrons, first when planning trips and content for the channel. As direct supporters of the content being created, you'll have a say in what comes next. Through the Patron-only feed, we'll discuss upcoming ideas and I'll take all your feedback into consideration.

Thank you so much for your support thus far, and I look forward to taking this next leap into the brave new world of ad-free content with you all!

When I reach $1000.00 I'll fly to Florida to interview Dr. Bert Herring, the author of the book that has inspired me to start The Dad Bod Project.
