The man in question is YouTuber and real estate investor Graham Stephan. In a now-viral TikTok, Stephan shared how much he makes with 2.5 million subscribers. Spoiler alert: It's a lot, a lot. He starts off discussing how many views he gets in a day which ranges from 200,000 to 500,000.

Then, he shows us how much these views translate to real-life money. Stephan's channel averages around $4,000 (approximately P194,000) to $7,000 (approximately P339,000) a day. On a particularly good day, he even made $11,000 (approximately P533,000) alone. Whew. Let that sink in.

Before you go and quit your current job, keep in mind that raking in that much money corresponds to your number of subscribers. And, subscribers come in with great content. It's a pretty full-time job to do all that. Never hurts to try, though.
