So Forbes put out their annual list of the highest-paid YouTube stars and a 7-Year-Old named Ryan who reviews toys is on top. This little dude made $22 million in 2018, doubling his total from last year of $11 million. He's also selling a line of "collectibles and more" at Walmart. This kid is basically getting insanely rich by just being a kid. He's playing with toys like every kid has since kids and toys became a thing. Companies just throwing money at him and knowing that if Ryan doesn't like your toy it's game over. The power this kid wields is impressive. When I see things like this I always ask myself "where did I go wrong?" "What choices could I have made differently?" "Why wasn't YouTube a thing when I was 7?" "How can I father a child just so they can make me rich?" You know normal rational thoughts.
