How about youtube? Heard one girl musician say she made nothing and heard another guy mechanic say it paid for his mclaren...
Youtube pays well if you can get views.

Basically companies pay Google to put their ads on YouTube, youtube then pays creators per view once you are monetized.

On top of that companies sponsor videos with products, endorsement money, etc etc

Youtube if done right can pay very well, but sadly even youtube isn't at its peak anymore. 6-8 years ago was probably peak youtube.

Actually Jack ...the quickest way to substantial net worth...(if you have anything on the ball)..find a rich old widow..preferably with no kids..and in failing health...(trust me they are out there)...now this may require you to occasionally wear a collar..and bark @ the moon on all fours..as well as other sundry tasks...but the commitment should be bout the same time wise as to obtain an MBA at a school of higher learning..and the financial gain will far and away exceed the earning potential of ANY skilled tradesman...or white collar professional :giggle::giggle::giggle:;)
Hmm so that's how you did it 🤔🤔🤔🤣🤣

Selling merchandise is the big money maker for many of the big car channels. Getting a chance to win a car fuels the buying process.

I need to figure out the merch thing. I have what I think are some pretty cool designs but don't offer them for sale.

See what Cleetus is doing. He has a warehouse with a complete shipping setup next to his shop.

He does this for many other Youtubers. Not recommending him, just saying.

T shirts & merch is where the money is. The continued walking advertising keeps feeding the fire.

@1971demon - I’ve told my wife countless times, the next time I marry it’s for money.

I was full on Florida man while I was down there. You’d never catch me in a stupid hat and glasses like that with anyone I know (until 4th of July)… but they’re perfect to beat back that Florida sun.
I don’t mind supporting these guys, my closet is full of YouTube merch at this point. Nike never did nothin for me! Why wear their shit.

I have friends that do merch on YT.. it’s all drop order when they’re small. You order, it goes right to the shop that makes their shirts and it gets shipped. Demolition Ranch got to the point where he was making his own shirts. Cleetus orders them by the truckload and ships from his warehouse. It’s all in your volume and available warehouse space… then paying people to do the work or doing it yourself. I can only imagine how much they make on merch when they’re running a giveaway… I’m a sucker for that stuff.

If I wasn't the bull headed obstinate musclehead (my wife's words) who refuses to get with the times and become computer savvy...I would probably indulge:rolleyes:

I bought the Holley version of that hat years ago after my neck got scorched at an event. Works really well.

Italians fry in Florida if they're not acclimated to the sun here.

If you're out in this sun for 8 to 12 hours you will burn if not used to it.

There's 3 temperate zones in Florida. We live at the top of the 2nd one.

A little further north is the same as Georgia weather.

Below us is the tropics from Vero Beach south.

We started in the top one but when I saw snow flurries, we moved further south.
