YouTube has become a platform where many have made their careers a dream come true. Some of the most famous YouTubers have become millionaires through their work on the platform. However, not just anyone can become a YouTuber. It takes charisma and hard work to make it to the top. You also have to be consistent with uploading. A lot of people on this list are known for vlogging in which they film themselves everyday and upload daily.
However, their work pays off as many of these people are making more than most people will see in their lifetimes. They also spend a lot from their earnings. Most YouTubers will cash their first big check in on their dream car and house. However, some have taken to giving back to the people who supported them along their journey. Many people on this list have bought their parents houses and cars.
YouTube can seem like the type of place where most of its creators are trying to flex or show off all the things they can afford and a lot of time it is. However, there is hard work that goes into producing daily content and making sure their audiences are pleased.
