If you’re a fan of the popular Minecraft and similar games, you’ve probably stumbled on Joseph Garrett’s YouTube channel at least once.
Joseph used to work as a bartender after he graduated from college with a degree in TV and video production, but decided to quit his job around a year ago. He swapped mixing drinks for mixing YouTube videos of himself playing Minecraft and commenting on the gameplay. It might come as a shock, but people actually love this guy – he has more views than Justin Bieber and One Direction – even after you combine the last two channels’ views together! Joseph started uploading at least one video every single day and shares his opinion, his tips and tricks and his experience with the rest of the world. His videos bring him enough money for a luxurious mansion, but he’s still living in his parents’ house in Hampshire, UK.
Thanks to the 3,000,000 million subscribers his channel “Stampylonghead” has, Joseph is making between $79,000 and $400,000 per month.
