    Linus needs to stop micro managing his employees. Being overbearing on script writing and people's individual work fills up WAY TOO MUCH of his day.

    Yall need to spend a week working in investment banking. Then you'll realize (in your normal job) you had time to fit in the work, you just didn't respect the grind enough! Jk - investment banking hours are disturbingly unhealthy.

    Ok great idea. James becomes a permenant co host and you get another writer, but james still overseas the writing.

    Linus, you need to get a co-host for videos. Anthony would be fantastic to take some of the load off. I love the content, and would hate to see you burn out.

    I get that Linus is the face of this channel, but good gravy LTT should consider hiring more hosts (non-writers) to fill in because Linus, and even the writers, seem spread thin alot

    Linus is a trip...a big kid with A.D.D. James is gorgeous and probably single-handedly keeps the place running at times...and Anthony is the resident computer genius.

    I love LTT videos every day, but seeing behind the scene is so damn interesting yet wow, the amount of stress behind the camera, no wonder Linus is on a mental breakdown every couple of days :/ Also explains why they hiring sooooooo many people. All making sense now. Also, Thanks for uploading this ^-^

    Such a sad video, that's the issue with corporatizing and commercializing a passion, now instead of doing it because you are loving it you have to do it because people rely on you. I wished I never saw this video.

  38. Jack Gray

    Jack Gray8 päivää sitten

    If LMG were a PC, Linus would be the bottle neck. I understand that he is the creator and face of LMG, but he really needs to find people whom he can put 100% trust in, so he can delegate tasks. Also, it would be extremely helpful for everyone to cross train in each department, so when people absent there is someone to pick up the task.

    Interesting, they were busy and having trouble with video ideas, so they solved it by having cameras follow them around to show just how busy they were and how difficult it is creating videos, and made that one of the videos.

    I see the problem here hahahahahaaha someone cant keep track of everything and its causing problems........ plus i see what appears to be a lack of "i believe in you trust". Perfectionist maybe? Its fairly obvious the critical problems here. Also, we have schedules so we DONT change them. Keep changing them and you subverted the whole system, good job!

    I have watched this video severally, i truly love your workfloor and the division of labour. I also love how Linus interacts freely with his employees, this is how employers should relate with the people who support them achieve what they aspire. You people are my true motivation in the journey i have started on FItitle. Thanks!

    It is wild to see how much of a good boss James is it honestly really is I don't know if he went to school for it or what but just like Rob Bailey said the people who worked hard to create the business don't have to be good bosses anymore they get to be spoiled and do whatever they want and I think that's fair man but the way to get away with that is to hire someone who is a very good boss that everyone answers to and that guy answers to you and boom its solid

    Hey I really enjoy your videos and I get that you need to have sponsored content to keep the show running but I thought this was too much on the nose like you were just reading the talking points that were presented to you. I wasn't sure if you even use monday at all or just claimed to for the video... kind of a bummer
