8-Year-Old Makes $1.3 Million a Year by Posting YouTube Videos

Saw this on Business Insider today:

What were you up to when you were 8 years old? Probably something less impressive than Evan.

Evan is the kid behind EvanTubeHD, which is a family-friendly YouTube channel where Evan (and occasionally his sister or mom) reviews toys and video games.

Evan rakes in $1.3 million a year from posting his toy reviews to YouTube.

It started out as a fun project Evan and his dad embarked on together. The pair would make Angry Birds stop-motion videos, and, according to a Newsweek interview with Jared, Evan’s father, “all of the proceeds from the channel goes into investment and savings accounts for their children.”
