    This 8-year old girl makes $127,000 a month off of her YT cooking channel. She probably doesn't even know what IM stands for, but she's killing it. Just goes to show, figure out what you're good at, and figure out how to make money out of it. Simple, and yet complicated, but feasible. Everybody's good at something, and in order to make money off of that something, it doesn't have to be related to IM just as this girl has shown. Baking tips...she's making $127K a month off of baking tips....let that sink in for a moment.

    Her parents are killing it not the little girl, they are just using her because it's cute, to get more views/subscribers.

    Their 'cuteness' is what is selling this.. parents doing well. Might aswell milk it while their young, when their in their late teens then they can milk it by cooking with cleavage.. oh how the world works. It has nothing got to do with what is actually happening or being cooked the majority of the time.

    127,000 a month, I've trained as a chef n worked, how will i make it on youtube haha

    This isn't inspiring...it's debilitating and spirit-sucking. lol But the point is made. "Do what you love, and the $$ will follow."

    Sure, it's completely obvious she's not doing this alone. But nonetheless, somebody in that family has 'cooking' in their skill sets, and they're banking the hell out of it. So they're using the little girl as their marketing tool, call it a joint venture.

    Bros and Sis's,
    This is what makes the icing on the cake. Don't be discouraged, be ENCOURAGED because this is a blueprint of what you COULD be doing to get yourself making the dough you dream of. This is your wake up call to maximize your creativity and noggin juice to make what you are passionate about into something that is beneficial to you. Take this as a challenge to take a risk, do something positive on your part.

    I didn't find this inspiring but rather cute.

    Good for her! I just hope they don't grow up as a brat or stuck up with all that money they're making. :p

    Nothing wrong with this. I"m actually happy for their success!!!

    It's like any other production where the main characters get all the attention and some money while the directors and producers get the cash.

    There's a lot of work and teamwork at play.

    By looking at the video, they have the camera/lighting skills, the production/editing skills, and of course the kitchen skills.

    They also have the equipment such as the camera and computer which I think an 8 year old can not do on their own. Their youth, playfulness, and cuteness is what makes them unique from the rest.

    $127,000 per month. They are pretty much set for life then. They have definitely had a lot of help from others around them to make their channel grow so large. Soak it up while you can, not to be negative but the wave is bound to end soon.

    Depending on their CTRC and the selection of ads they're receiving, it is possible.

    Some people do no marketing at all and strictly post quality content and make seven figures annually on YouTube. It's a lot of work though, some of these youtubers work 80-90 hour weeks to get their stuff up on time.
