Three months after starting sixth form, I decided that it isn’t something I want to do. I starting streaming on my old laptop and eventually got enough tips to buy a full gaming PC.

Skip to two years later, I’m currently making $2000 a month through sponsorships, donations and subs. I’m going on an all expense paid trip to LA next week as a i’ve been invited to attend a gaming convention. If I can do it, anyone can.

Ask me anything!

Do you have a long term sustainable business plan?

How much do you predict your income scaling the next 12 months (and next 5 years, and how?)

$2K dollars is plenty, until you have a mortgage, kids, and many other expenses adulting-life provides. Also as your friends get more money and you get introduced to new things your lifestyle costs will suddenly increase dramatically as well.

Do you wear glasses?

I use the computer a lot and I want to avoid getting glasses/bad eyesight so was wondering if you had any tips on how to do that?

I usually look around for a bit after using the computer for a few minutes but I don't know if that's enough

Do u at least plan on getting some formal education when this all ends?

Also $2000 is not enough when converted to pound sterling for a family and mortgage.

Good luck tho

as the way my audience is growing, and the general demands for gaming/streamers, i project that it will get higher over the next few years. i can’t give too much information away but its only very recently that i’ve been reviving sponsorships and my income is increasing drastically. i’m saving as much as i can, and my girlfriend is also very good with money. she’s currently at university studying economics and she’s trading her own money, plus some of mine on the stock exchange. it’s only been a little while since she’s been helping me out but she’s made lots herself! she’s actually saved enough to pay for her remaining tuition free upfront instead of relying on student finance. i think together, in terms of mortgages, marriage, kids etc, we will be pretty stable. we’re looking at renting a place together in the next couple of months!! it’s all up hill from here folks

Blue light you mean....

And really, gaming sounds nice now, but it is all a trend. It is not something you can really rely on.

Good luck anyway!!!
