The Real Donald to Worry About
Thought the title to this post would be a fun play on words. get it. @realdonaldtrump is the Twitter account for Donald Trump, 45th President of the United States so your brain would automatically associate the 2nd and 3rd word of the title with Trump and think it's about him when in reality this post is going to be about Donaldson. Jimmy Donaldson. Aka Mr Beast.
You probably know Mr Beast as a YouTuber but he is probably one of the most remarkable people of the early 21st Century.
At this point, some of you might be flabbergasted. How could a dumb Youtube entertaining clown who makes cringey little children videos be one of the most remarkable people of the century when he's just 24 and we are only 22 years into this century.
Well, the answer is pretty simple.
At the age of 24, Jimbo is already probably a billionaire if you were to value his shares in all of his companies. Let me briefly breakdown his main ventures
Mr Beast (108m subscribers) - 4.56B Views - $17m in Adsense
Mr Beast Gaming (30m subscribers) - 1.68B Views - $6.3m in Adsense
Beast Reacts (20m subscribers) - 1.68B Views - $6.3m in Adsense
13 Main Channel Videos - $1.5m x 13 = $19.5m
So his YT channels alone do an estimated $50m in revenue a year.
He has said Beast Burger has already done upwards of $100m in revenue and that Feastables sells 6 figs a day at Walmart.
This doesn't even include merch, his dubbed channels and whatever other business he does that I can't recall.
So hundreds in millions in revenue and he has already gotten a billion dollar offer to buy everything he does and he declined.
So pretty safe to say that the Mr Beast empire is worth billion(s). Information about his deal with his management team and investors isn't public but I would make a guess that he owns a decent share of his empire making him insanely wealthy at 24.
While Forbes may claim Kylie Jenner was the youngest self-made billionaire at 21. We all know that's bs.
Zuckerberg still holds the record at age 23. So Jimmy did pretty well. On par with the Zuck.
He has been a podcast tour recently to spread the gospel about his thoughts on how to grow on YouTube and to market his brand after seeing how Andrew Tate reached internet stardom by going around on podcasts and getting recognition not by his own promotional videos but other people clipping his content from interviews and uploading on Instagram Reels, TikTok, YouTube Shorts and more.
So far the Donald has been successful, all my YouTube and YouTube Shorts recommendations have been about him talking about his billion dollar empire and wild thoughts.
so that's why this donald is going to surpass THE DONALD in 5 years BUT I think his mentality which has led to his rise is not going to be relatable and fun for the masses.
Steve Jobs and Elon Musk are extremely successful but they are not well liked by the public. MrBeast philanthropy probably offsets some of the dislike but it will probably come to bite him when it comes to likability but who cares when you achieve greatness and help people along the way.
