Luncheon Presentation Looks at Making Money on YouTube

Is it possible to take your skills and hobbies and make money on YouTube? Carl Jacobson says it’s absolutely possible. He’ll share his story of finding success and independence through social media at a Lunch and Learn Presentation titled “Make Money on YouTube” on Wednesday, Feb. 20, from noon to 1 p.m. in the McLoughlin Auditorium at Clackamas Community College.

Jacobson began recording himself working on his wood lathe in 2008. Through YouTube, Facebook and his website, he developed a significant online following. He has 11,500 subscribers and 35,000 views a day on his four YouTube channels. In 2012, he left his full-time job of 18 years to work solely for his company, The Woodshop TV.

The “Make Money on YouTube” presentation will provide tips on profiting from one’s knowledge and skills through creating a business using social media tools, gaining followers and developing a customer base. It is presented by the Customized Training and Development Services at CCC, along with the Business and Computer Science Departments.

Tickets for the presentation are $5 and are available at the door. Cash or checks only please. For more information, call 503-594-3200 or email
