We can’t be sure how rich Shmee150 really is, and it doesn’t matter if he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth or if he bootstrapped his way up to becoming a YouTube superbrand. From our extensive investigative work we have discovered that Shmee150 left school at 18, set up an online retail tech business in London which quickly became successful, sold that business, moved to New Zealand to become a Ski instructor, picked up a ski-related injury and moved back to England, got a job in the back office of a London based investment consultancy, started YouTube-ing, left his proper job, and is now is full-time YouTube-ing and making lots of money.
Further investigative research, not available online, reveals that Shmee150s’ father is indeed a very successful London based investment banker/stockbroker. Stock Brokers can earn a lot of money, however, the popular YouTuber is a tale of one man bootstrapping his own way to success.
Shmee150, real name Tim Burton, also works for a number of automotive brands advising on social media campaigns and strategies. He also has an online retail store selling branded accessories. Combine this with additional sponsorship and YouTube revenue and…
We are none the wiser to knowing just how much Tim Burton earns every year, we can guess but it doesn’t matter, it’s all about the content stupid.
About £2m per year.
Not bad eh?
While secretly we love to hate success, the reality is that most of us will only get to drive these incredible sports cars through his YouTube lense. While that is enough for casual viewing, what can you do if you want to get in on the action yourself when you don’t have the cash?
Games. Driving games to be exact.
Head over to drifted.com’s driving games page and get behind the wheel of any supercar you like. You can race, drift or rally these exotic cars for as long as you please.
Sure it’s not quite the same as owning the real thing, but hey, at least you don’t have to pay the car maintenance like Tim does 😉
