Hank Green Talks About the Importance of Expanding Your Dreams at the 2014 XOXO Festival in Portland, Oregon

“Dreams should fuel you, not define you.”

At the 2014 XOXO festival (previously) in Portland, Oregon this past September, the jovial Hank Green, known for such projects as SciShow and VlogBrothers, talks about his success in creating videos, how that success has allowed him and his brother John Green to create “good” on the internet and how dreams can be limiting unless they are expanded to allow a person to move forward in their life.

Hank Green is the benevolent leader of the Nerdfighters, a massive community of YouTube fans and creators. With his brother John, their VlogBrothers channel grew to over 2.2 million subscribers in seven years, leading to the creation of his own record label, online charity, crowdfunding platform, a dozen successful YouTube channels, and VidCon, the world’s largest convention about online video for fans and creators.
