If you'd like to support my independent YouTube channel, podcast, essays, and novels, you can do so through recurring or one-time contribution, or by supporting me non-monetarily.

No matter what way you support me, know that I am deeply grateful for your contribution. It means everything to me that you value my creations enough to support me.

As I don't believe in advertisement, getting your support on Patreon and through donations is the best way for me to earn a living while staying true to my values.

Recurring Contribution

Patreon is a very popular method to support independent creators.

As an independent show, it is the most reliable method to support me, as I get an idea about my monthly contributions.

If you don't want to or can't do Patreon for whatever reason, consider setting up a recurring monthly donation via Buy Me A Coffee by clicking on the Membership tab above the Support form.

One-Time Contribution

If you'd prefer a one-time contribution to my journey, you can send any amount my way via Buy Me A Coffee.

Non-Monetary Contribution

I am an independent creator who considers advertising a horrible way to spread the word, I rely on your help to spread the word.

So if you'd like to help out without sending money my way, consider sharing your favorite episodes, videos, or articles with a friend who you think might enjoy my creations. If you are a social-media type person, post your favorites there.


If you enjoy the show, leave a review in your favorite podcast player, so others can find the Modern Day Hippie podcast. People who don't know me might pass me over to listen to more popular creations if there are no reviews convincing them that it is worth it. If you recommend the podcast, it increases my chances for new listeners.


If you read my books and enjoyed them, leave a review on Amazon, the website of your favorite book distributor, Storygraph or GoodReads. Most people only leave reviews when they have something to complain about, so any positive words you can share may make someone pick up the books, despite the fact that I'm a tiny indie author.


Liking, subscribing, and commenting help me reach more of the YouTube audience. YouTube favors those who have ads enabled, so help me spread my message despite the fact that I don't (and don't want to) enable advertising on the channel.

Again, thank you for helping me grow, learn, and continue this journey. You are awesome!
