00:00:54 00:00:58 so he makes more money than most of the
00:00:56 00:01:00 people that he asks us questions let me

00:01:04 00:01:08 person what did it take for you to start
00:01:06 00:01:09 making your first dollars on YouTube I
00:01:08 00:01:12 just put in a few words like more than I
00:01:09 00:01:14 had I was really broke I moved to LA
00:01:12 00:01:16 from Florida I got two credit cards open
00:01:14 00:01:19 I maxed them out on the way to LA in a
00:01:16 00:01:20 U-Haul and while I was in Texas I ran
00:01:19 00:01:22 out of money opened a third credit card
00:01:20 00:01:24 on the phone and maxed that one out by
00:01:22 00:01:26 the time I got to L.A entire year I'm
00:01:24 00:01:29 living out in La making videos with Eric
00:01:26 00:01:30 now in debt in debt at this point what
00:01:29 00:01:33 has been your best month in earnings
00:01:30 00:01:35 from YouTube oh man nothing too crazy I
00:01:33 00:01:37 think like like 40 000. why
00:01:35 00:01:39 and from where you started so now it
00:01:37 00:01:41 hasn't been too long so congrats
00:01:39 00:01:42 seriously it's absolutely crazy you guys
00:01:41 00:01:43 all right you're crushing it how long
00:01:42 00:01:45 did it take you to make your first
00:01:43 00:01:47 dollar on YouTube
00:01:45 00:01:51 so I started making YouTube videos in
00:01:47 00:01:54 2008 like a music channel 2008. wow I'm
00:01:51 00:01:56 doing music covers I made 150 bucks I
00:01:54 00:01:57 think within like a couple years from
00:01:56 00:02:01 that and then I didn't make anything
00:01:57 00:02:02 until 2020. what is the most you've
00:02:01 00:02:04 actually earned in a month from your
00:02:02 00:02:08 YouTube channel
00:02:04 00:02:12 um I think earlier this year we did 245
00:02:08 00:02:15 000 and with how many subscribers uh I
00:02:12 00:02:16 have 800 000 now so around 700 000. oh
00:02:15 00:02:18 congrats you bro it's one of the biggest
00:02:16 00:02:20 numbers of the day and you don't even
00:02:18 00:02:22 have a million Subs so it shows that you
00:02:20 00:02:24 can make good money on YouTube without
00:02:22 00:02:25 having a crazy big Channel hey look so
00:02:24 00:02:27 my question for you is what was the
00:02:25 00:02:30 first dollar you made from YouTube and
00:02:27 00:02:32 when was it oh it was in 2012 but I made
00:02:30 00:02:34 like 40 bucks awesome I'm super happy
00:02:32 00:02:37 you've been on YouTube for 10 years or
00:02:34 00:02:38 more now yes what's the best month that
00:02:37 00:02:41 you've had with your Channel
00:02:38 00:02:43 uh the best month I think I did a meal
00:02:41 00:02:45 once wow yeah yeah that was that was
00:02:43 00:02:47 very nice
00:02:45 00:02:49 oh that's our man I think my little
00:02:47 00:02:51 brother watches every single one of his
00:02:49 00:02:52 videos nice to meet you I'm Jordan I
00:02:51 00:02:54 learned about the interview for like 30
00:02:52 00:02:57 seconds do you remember when you made
00:02:54 00:02:59 your first dollar from YouTube yeah I do
00:02:57 00:03:02 and it was only about a Dollar too is
00:02:59 00:03:03 the thing that was about like two two
00:03:02 00:03:05 and a half years ago so it hasn't even
00:03:03 00:03:07 been that long I was probably posting
00:03:05 00:03:09 videos for like a year or two years
00:03:07 00:03:11 before I made a single dollar off of
00:03:09 00:03:14 YouTube but everything I did was more so
00:03:11 00:03:16 just for the impact and not making money
00:03:14 00:03:18 so that was motivating me to just keep
00:03:16 00:03:20 going regardless of what was coming in
00:03:18 00:03:23 what's the most you've ever spent on one
00:03:20 00:03:26 single video oh my gosh uh probably 250k
00:03:23 00:03:28 yeah 250 to inspire the kids is amazing
00:03:26 00:03:30 man yeah what's the biggest month you've
00:03:28 00:03:32 ever had in earnings from YouTube I'll
00:03:30 00:03:34 just say our biggest month in earnings
00:03:32 00:03:36 is still ahead of us but it allows us to
00:03:34 00:03:38 support you know about 200 000 square
00:03:36 00:03:41 feet of Burbank Studio space which is
00:03:38 00:03:43 not you've got about 125 employees we've
00:03:41 00:03:45 got multiple brands that we're launching
00:03:43 00:03:46 you know to all the parents that have
00:03:45 00:03:48 said you can't build a real career off
00:03:46 00:03:49 YouTube I think there's a lot of people
00:03:48 00:03:51 in this room that are proving that wrong
00:03:49 00:03:54 the day was going amazing I met up with
00:03:51 00:03:56 some friends I made some new ones and
00:03:54 00:03:58 even took an Ellen arm wrestling on
00:03:56 00:04:00 camera but I still had some people I
00:03:58 00:04:02 wanted to tok to so I made some phone
00:04:00 00:04:04 calls and secured an interview with one
00:04:02 00:04:07 of my favorite YouTubers in the world we
00:04:04 00:04:10 just secured something crazy with Mr
00:04:07 00:04:11 Trahan Mr six foot three I am doing I'm
00:04:10 00:04:14 so good how are you doing Jordan I'm
00:04:11 00:04:16 doing great man so look how long did it
00:04:14 00:04:18 take you to make your first dollar or
00:04:16 00:04:20 should I say first penny from YouTube uh
00:04:18 00:04:22 I remember this vividly like as soon as
00:04:20 00:04:25 I got monetized and I saw an actual
00:04:22 00:04:26 Penny yeah like on my Creator Studio I
00:04:25 00:04:28 started freaking out but I think the
00:04:26 00:04:31 memory I actually have is when I hit 15
00:04:28 00:04:32 because I refreshed one day and I had a
00:04:31 00:04:35 video going kind of viral yeah and I was
00:04:32 00:04:37 like wow that's 15 bucks that's like two
00:04:35 00:04:39 hours in Texas a minimum wage work I was
00:04:37 00:04:40 like this is gonna be insane I mean
00:04:39 00:04:42 you're known for your video that didn't
00:04:40 00:04:43 cost that much money but I'm curious
00:04:42 00:04:46 what's the most that you've actually
00:04:43 00:04:49 spent on a video okay so a lot of people
00:04:46 00:04:49 don't know this I'd tok about it
00:04:50 00:04:53 when I went to the world's loneliest
00:04:51 00:04:56 house in Iceland yeah and that video
00:04:53 00:04:57 cost eighteen thousand dollars just
00:04:56 00:04:59 because the trip out there was so
00:04:57 00:05:00 expensive yeah and to get those guys to
00:04:59 00:05:03 be able to take me and like have all the
00:05:00 00:05:04 resources was a lot but I really wanted
00:05:03 00:05:07 to do it so that was the most expensive
00:05:04 00:05:10 what would you say ballpark you have had
00:05:07 00:05:12 in your best month from YouTube ballpark
00:05:10 00:05:14 dude I don't even know I give you the
00:05:12 00:05:16 ballpark but the best month ever was the
00:05:14 00:05:18 penny series yeah I uploaded 30 times
00:05:16 00:05:20 and it was worth it man we all like left
00:05:18 00:05:21 our families for 30 days it went super
00:05:20 00:05:23 hard raised a bunch for charity and it
00:05:21 00:05:24 was definitely I put us ahead it was
00:05:23 00:05:27 like worth six months of AdSense yeah we
00:05:24 00:05:28 raised 1.4 mil for uh feeding America
00:05:27 00:05:30 and that was uh super rewarding super
00:05:28 00:05:31 special big respect not only that but

00:06:00 00:06:03 is one of my favorite creators on the
00:06:02 00:06:05 whole platform my first question for you
00:06:03 00:06:08 how many videos did you post until you
00:06:05 00:06:11 made your first dollar from YouTube oh I
00:06:08 00:06:13 probably made like 200 videos so 300
00:06:11 00:06:14 videos before I ever made a dollar from
00:06:13 00:06:16 YouTube do you remember when that first
00:06:14 00:06:18 dollar was I remember it extremely
00:06:16 00:06:21 vividly yeah of course I made Seven
00:06:18 00:06:22 cents on January 1st of 2020. where I
00:06:21 00:06:25 monetized my channel for the first time
00:06:22 00:06:27 and I was it was the most valuable seven
00:06:25 00:06:28 cents I ever made in my entire life but
00:06:27 00:06:30 that wasn't too long ago that was not
00:06:28 00:06:31 that was literally like two years ago
00:06:30 00:06:33 yeah and now two years later you're
00:06:31 00:06:35 spending crazy money on these videos
00:06:33 00:06:38 what's the most you've spent on a video
00:06:35 00:06:40 oh no uh well
00:06:38 00:06:42 I I did this one video where I rented
00:06:40 00:06:43 out an entire airplane for me and my
00:06:42 00:06:45 friends but I got scammed the first time
00:06:43 00:06:47 and I was there by the way you were
00:06:45 00:06:49 there for that that's right all right so
00:06:47 00:06:51 the first time I lost thirty thousand
00:06:49 00:06:52 dollars so I just got scammed out of 30k
00:06:51 00:06:56 and then I had to do it again for
00:06:52 00:06:58 another 40 000 probably 90 000 on that
00:06:56 00:07:00 video wow yeah what's the most you've
00:06:58 00:07:05 generated in a month from your YouTube
00:07:00 00:07:05 channel oh man oh do I want to tell them
00:07:06 00:07:14 I think my best month
00:07:10 00:07:18 I think my best month was probably like
00:07:14 00:07:20 480k off of AdSense wow just two years
00:07:18 00:07:21 ago you made your first seven cents yeah
00:07:20 00:07:22 yeah yeah and now you're doing multiple
00:07:21 00:07:24 times when I say that you have to
00:07:22 00:07:26 include this part I say that to inspire
00:07:24 00:07:27 I'm not doing that to brag I literally
00:07:26 00:07:30 burned all that money on the next videos
