    Cheers mates, I thought I'd post in here since this is the MONEY thread of course. Subscribers, views, all that good stuff is worth something of course.. but it's got nothing on cash. It's king after all. I have enough money currently to survive the next 2-3 months here in Poland (I moved to a cheaper country from the US). Currently I make like 200-300 a month after the ad drops. I need like an extra $400-500.

    If you were in my position, what would you do? Currently my job is focusing PART-TIME on youtube and livestreaming (as it'd be a waste to let a channel gaining 60 subs or so per day suddenly die out, especially as it'll keep growing over time) and then whatever time I have left over as of today I'm dedicating it to searching for work. $400-500 isn't a lot in the grand-scheme of things, but currently it's funny how McDonald's could probably pay more than YouTUbe.

    I don't care about the short term, as I know in 1-2 years this will all be worth it. The struggle will have helped me advance to where I needed to get to. I'm trying to make my job basically searching for a part-time or full-time job (the usual 40 hour work week) and with other stuff, I just might have to sacrifice sleep. What would you focus on?

    Keep going! even if you could make more money working at McDonald's would you even want to be there? Maybe short time, but if you have the determination I'm sure you'll be able to make more in the long term.

    Good luck avilux, I wish you well!
