Being a content creator is one of the most lucrative jobs out there! Mr. Beast, a famous YouTube content creator, made over 54 million dollars last year. Similarly, many content creators in the ASMR and gaming niches are literally eating and gaming their way to 7 figures! How crazy is that?

While I might not be on Mr. Beast’s level, I am a living example of a full-time content creator. In this post, I lay out exactly how much I make in a month and how you can realistically do the same!

How It All Started…

For those reading that don’t know me, my name is Adrian Brambila and I started my content creation journey back in 2011. At the time, I was making dance videos teaching people how to do the robot. I didn’t know it then but choosing to put my content out on the internet would be the key to me reaching financial freedom by the age of 30.

When I was little, my parents would have told me playing video games and making videos wouldn’t amount to anything — and, at the time, they were right. That being said, things have changed! Today, you can be a full-time video game player or YouTuber and make millions! That’s insanity!

Now, I will say that being a full-time gamer is pretty challenging. You either have to be really good at the game or really entertaining. But being a content creator… that’s much easier! There are so many platforms that you don’t even need a camera to create content! All you really need is a phone!

Meet Alex Fasulo

In fact, content creation doesn’t have to be in video form at all! Meet my friend, Alexandra Fasulo, who has made over 7 figures through blogging! After she quit her 9 to 5 job, Alex tried over 10 different strategies before she fell in love with writing.

“I tried teaching social media classes, managing social media accounts, and social media consultations,” Alex said. “Then I tried freelancing on Fiver and it stuck! Some people ask me why I freelance write through Fiverr and my answer is always ‘because it just started to make me money!’”.
