Milestone Meetups: Checking in with Colin and Samir, Jenny Lorenzo, and Jo Franco
YouTube's Chief Business Officer Robert Kyncl chats with creators who've recently reached major goals on their channels.

At YouTube, there’s nothing we love more than celebrating all the milestones creators hit as they become the next wave of global entrepreneurs. From subscriber growth to personal achievements, these meaningful moments can inspire insight and reflection that offer lessons to us all.


It’s in that spirit that we’re excited to kick off our new series, “Milestone Meetups.” In these video interviews, YouTube’s top execs meet with some of today’s breakthrough creators, who give an inside look into their journeys and hopes for the future. For this first installment, Chief Business Officer Robert Kyncl talks with Colin and Samir, Jenny Lorenzo, and Jo Franco. In these open and honest conversations, Colin and Samir discuss how they almost quit before finding their mission, Jenny Lorenzo reveals the role her abuela plays in her success, and Jo Franco shares how making it on YouTube enabled her to buy her mom a house and pay off student loans.
