It’s not easy to make a career out of YouTube, but if you are lucky enough to be successful you can earn millions.
One of the site’s biggest creators, PewDiePie, makes an eye-watering amount of money from posting videos, streaming while he plays games and selling merchandise.
And as the single most-subscribed channel on YouTube, PewDiePie's net worth shows there is a lot of money to be earned on the website.
But last year Felix Kjellberg announced he would be taking some time off in 2020.
Many can’t afford to take unpaid time off their work, but Felix could actually live a comfortable life with just the earnings from 2019.
