Who Is Syndicate
Syndicate is really Tom Cassell a 24 year old millionaire. He rose in fame since 2010 where he started his YouTube channel TheSyndicateProject where he currently has over 10,000,000 subscribers.
What started as a hobby lead to him leaving school to pursue the lifestyle he wanted to live. With over 25,000,000 views on his most popular video the ad revenue alone would produce enough income to live on for a long time. Just that one video could have produced between $125,000 and $200,000 so far and it is continuing to have views.
Though he started attending college, he left as he felt he could make enough money to support himself with his vlogging career, a decision that paid off.
How A Hobby Grew To A Job
Though now he is one of the largest gaming vloggers in the world he didn’t start out that way. When he started it was just a hobby for him, since he loved video games and thought he could get others to enjoy it with him.
He focused on Halo, Modern Warfare 2, and later on Call of Duty:Black Ops Zombies, all games he enjoyed before he started getting paid to play them.
What Is Syndicate’s Net Worth?
Syndicat’s net worth is currently around $4.72 million. Not bad for someone who plays video games.
He earned this money mostly through the views on his YouTube channel, but he got those views by constantly putting out good videos people would actually want to see. He currently has 3.227 videos ranging from him playing games, to him and his dad hanging out.
Though it seems like what he does is easy, he has put in work. First, he has to get good enough at those games that people would be willing to listen to him play them. It may be fun but it can also be work to get that good at anything.
Second, he has actively sought the notice of others, working out deals with other gamers, as well as companies, trying to get his name and brand out there to make this income.
Third, he put all his eggs in the basket. He quit school and really didn’t have a backup he had to make this work, and he succeeded.
What We Learn From Syndicate’s Net Worth
If I was able to make videos all day and get to Syndicate’s net worth of $4.72 million I probably wouldn’t be writing this article. But there are some things that I, and you can learn from his net worth.
First, find something you can see yourself doing for hours a day. He plays video games and loves doing it but I don’t. I can’t stand playing a game for hours and hours, feels like a waste of time to me. But I do enjoy reading, writing, and teaching all things that have allowed me to make a living without having a boss.
Second, just because something looks easy, doesn’t mean it is. Yes his videos look easy to make, but that just means he put a lot of work into it. We too need to make sure whatever we’re working on is the highest quality it can be otherwise no one will buy it or us.
Third, go all in. Sometimes we can take our time and try to see if something will work, and other times we need to go all in and count on it working.
