Have you ever heard of Shane Dawson? There are a lot of people who haven’t. That being said, it doesn’t stop him from making a ton of money. As a matter of fact, he’s amassed a net worth of no less than four million dollars. That’s a staggering amount of money, to say the least. When you’re talking about somebody that most people have never even heard of, it’s only understandable that you would be wondering how that particular individual might have be able to make so much money. In order to get a better understanding of all of this, let’s begin by getting some background information on the person in question.
The first thing you might like to know is that Shane Dawson was born in 1988. That means that he is just thirty years old. How on earth does someone make so much money by their thirtieth birthday? Part of his success is due to the fact that he has a lot of different jobs. In fact, he is a musician, an actor, and a director. He’s also written some books, and performs sketch comedy. As if that weren’t enough, he’s pretty well known on YouTube. Even if you don’t know who he is, there’s a fairly decent chance that if you have someone in your household who spends a lot of time on YouTube, then that person probably does.
He actually started making videos on YouTube when he was just 19 years old. By the time he’d been in the site for two years, he easily had more than 500,000 followers. During those earlier years, he did a lot of comedy acts and even composed and released a few songs. Ultimately, he made the decision to write, direct and start in a film. Almost immediately thereafter, he started a podcast on the site. Eventually, he made about 140 podcasts, and this dramatically increased the number of followers he had. Since then, he has been a well known constant on YouTube, and he continues to come up with new and innovative ideas.
More recently, he started working on a series of videos on YouTube that center around a number of conspiracy theories. The subject matter changes from one episode to the next, and these videos have proven to be some of the most popular things that he has ever done. As a matter of fact, he now has more followers than ever, and that number seems to be growing by the week. He also continues to compose some documentaries, and these are also well received. He now has about seventeen million people who subscribe to his YouTube channel. In addition, his videos have garnered about four billion views. His channel has been denoted as one of the one hundred most popular YouTube channels in existence.
Of course, he has monetized all of this since day one. Therefore, he’s had the chance to make a lot of money through all of his work on YouTube. Moreover, he has the number of viewers to help him make a great deal of money from virtually everything he does. You might think that with all of his YouTube activities, he’d be far too busy to do much of anything else, but that’s not necessarily the case. In fact, he’s written two different books over the years that have both hit the New York Times bestseller list.
As you can see, he makes his money from a lot of different projects. Although most of his money-making endeavors originate from YouTube, the books that he has written certainly didn’t hurt his financial status, either. When you consider the fact that he’s been doing this stuff since he was just nineteen years old and that he’s now thirty, it becomes a little easier to understand how he has managed to make so much. After all, he’s been doing this for almost fifteen years now. As a result, he’s definitely had some time to make money from all of that activity.
If you ever thought that it was basically impossible for someone to make themselves rich off of YouTube, this guy serves as living proof that it can actually be done. It may not be easy, or even likely, but he has demonstrated that it is indeed a possibility.
