Making Money From Normal Life

Last Update: July 11, 2019

Of course, instead of being productive today, I'm busy on YouTube looking up silly things like how to juice plums.

Yeah, I'm just as good at wasting time as you guys :)

Luckily, I got something out of it, and I hope you can too.

While looking up how to juice plums (for a beer I'm making), I found a random YouTube channel with the info I needed. I hopped on over to her channel page, and saw a bunch of random things like 4th of July parades, food canning information, and gardening tips.

The content was NOT professional. The video was pretty low quality. There was no fancy graphics, editing, or "jump cuts". It was just a normal person, doing normal stuff, and putting up recordings on YouTube.

Can you see what I see? She has 40,000 subscribers!

With 8 years of content on her channel, I guarantee she's making a decent amount of money from the channel, and she posted content as recently as yesterday, so the channel is still growing strong.

You Don't Have To Be Amazing To Make Money Online

A lot of people get caught up in not being "the best". They think that because they aren't the next Pat Flynn or Neil Patel that they can't make money online.

It's just not true.

Regular people also like consuming content from other regular people online.

Even if you aren't perfect, you can still earn money from your website, YouTube channel, or ecommerce store.

It may take you longer, and you may make less money than "the experts", but who cares. Just because you don't make a million dollars doesn't make ten grand less valuable.

I'm not saying to aim low and go for small goals. I'm just saying that you can earn a decent living online just being yourself.

Can You Boil An Egg?

A video from this channel that has 7.3 thousand views is called "How to Make Perfect Boiled Eggs". Was she the first person to make this kind of video? Absolutely not!

Another video, titled "Turkey Dinner from Food Storage", is just of her cooking food she previously canned.

It has 6,000+ views, and 105 Likes / 5 Dislikes.

Well, I better get back to work.

Just wanted to share this with you because it's a great example of how you can make money online just doing what you love.

It takes work. Those plums didn't juice themeslves. Those videos didn't get recorded and uploaded by themselves either.

You have to put in the work to earn, but the opportunities are out there.

Hope you have a produtive day!

PS. In case you didn't know already, people are earning ad revenue on YouTube just eating. Yup. It's called Mukbang, and you can see this one girl below has 1.1 million subscribers and got over 161,000 views just for eating Taco Bell.

What a crazy world of opportunity we live in.

Hi Nathan,

Thanks for sharing this. Just curious, how much do you think she earns from 40K subscribers on just display ads from YouTube?

nathaniell - You never cease to amaze how easy it is for you to create on probably almost everything you see. I was looking at the blog picture, I wasn't looking at the big picture of friends, names & countrymen lend me your presence. Thank you very much.

Yes, that's very true, the opportunities are out there! Therefore, we just need to look and work, consequently as always been said, no work-no pay, no pain-no gain. :-D
