In June 2017, I took Food Blogger Pro’s recipe video Bootcamp. The course was addictive to follow and eventually convinced me to create my first recipe video ever. They made it look so easy! Well…now in 2018, that same video is nearly at 10 Million views, and it literally changed my life.Aaron, FatForWeightLoss
