Show some love to me and Gustavo and give him a little tip.
☕️☕️ Buy me a coffee to support this channel, and I also promise you that it will stay ad free, I hate ads in videos bc it interrupts the user experience…Anyway I can also use your tip to trim my beard a little bit.
Also, on the following page you’ll find some stupid “behind the scene” updates now and than that probably no one cares, but I need tons of coffee for recording and editing, so appreciate your tip. 🙂
