About Ryan Lendt

Hello, and thank you for visiting my Patreon page! After much hemming and hawing, I've finally decided to pull the trigger on creating this page thanks to the encouragement of many of my viewers. (You know who you are - thank you!)

My hesitation was mostly due to the fact that I didn't know what to offer my kind future patrons. I put a lot of work and passion into creating my videos, and the idea of offering premium content (i.e. doing more stuff) isn't terribly appealing to me. To the extent that one feels the term applies to my videos, they are the premium content. I always do my best to leave no stone unturned and to communicate my findings to the best of my ability, and I love the fact that my videos are free for anyone and everyone to watch.

But I know that some of you want to support my effort financially, and I appreciate that sentiment very much. Really, it gives me the warm fuzzies. It's certainly a faux pax to turn down a sentiment such as that. 

So here we are!

Some of you extra kind folks may be disappointed that there's only one level of support. But think of it this way: On average, I earn one penny for every 4 views on youtube. If you're crazy and you watch every single video I put out in a month (let's just say 28 for easy math), you would have contributed 7 cents to my turtle food fund. That means just $1 multiplies your impact 14 times over.

14 is a powerful multiplier.

There's another thing. One of my favorite quotes:

"If you want to be a millionaire, find a way to help a million people."

A very tall and well-known person said that. While the exercise here is not to make a million dollars, that quote illustrates a notion I really enjoy... that earning money is a natural result of adding value to people's lives. So, if I've added value to your life, and if you have a recurring dollar to easily spare, then I'm honored and excited that you've taken a moment to consider supporting the cause. To thank you, I'm going to hold one special live-stream each month that only my Patreon supporters will have access to. I'll post the day, time, and link on your top secret members page here. It should be a good time! And if you can't make it, you'll still be able to watch the live-stream later if you'd like.

Oh, and in case you're wondering... here's a rough outline of the cause, as it stands right now.

1) Continue posting a bazillion videos on Youtube about how to play Pearl Jam, Pearl Jam related, and Pearl Jam related related songs.

2) Record lots of great songs with lots of great people. Patreon supporters will definitely get discounts on the vinyl runs. Your support helps mightily in this area particularly.

3) Move a little more south, buy some land, and take in lots of turtles and tortoises in need of a home. Perhaps start a non-profit. Even more perhaps build or buy a golf course, the profits from which will fund the turtle sanctuary long after I'm gone. Chelonians live a long time.

4) Become a scratch golfer (currently a 7. long way to go) and play Pebble Beach with Phil Mickelson. Pat Monahan gets to, why shouldn't I?! My songs even have more than 4 chords in them. hmph.

In all seriousness, thank you for taking the time, and thank you for being here.

-Ryan
