This university drop out was catapulted into being a millionaire after he started a hobby in 2014 – now he lives in a $4.4m home and earns $2.4m a year.
Australia’s richest YouTuber comes in the form of a 25-year-old millennial university dropout, who makes millions posting gaming videos online.
Brisbane-based Lachlan Power reportedly makes at least $2.4 million a year. He lives in a $4.4 million apartment and drives a $200,000 Tesla X SUV.
The young millionaire has also been linked to international lingerie model Morgan Krizmanich.
He’s the sixth biggest YouTuber in Australia, with a whopping 14.6 million subscribers.
Power has amazing deals with companies like Samsung and Disney, so it’s no wonder he brings home the big bucks.
The son of Logan mayor Darren Power and bank manager mother Lynne, Power has three siblings who seemed to have a pretty humble upbringing in Shailer Park, Brisbane, as reported by the Courier Mail.
In 2014 he decided to take up YouTube as a hobby, when the video game Fortnite became incredibly popular. A few years later and Power’s channel has catapulted him into living a lifestyle of the rich and the famous.
Since then, he has started his own clothing label, Power by Lachlan, and endorses products from companies like Emirates and The Pokémon Company.
Power’s family trust owns his incredible $4.4 million Kangaroo Point riverside apartment where he lives, but the trust also owns a seven-bedroom property in Cornubia.
The property includes a basketball court, pool and custom bar and a Newstead unit Power bought at age 18 for $462,000.
Power’s Tesla SUV is worth $200,000 with the customised number plates ‘BANTER’.
However, Power might be looking to start a new venture soon, with the YouTuber telling fans this week he wasn’t “passionate” about his job anymore.
“I just want to find the burning passion for creating Fortnite content that I once had …” he tweeted.
“For the record I love playing Fortnite and enjoy playing it almost everyday.
“Just creatively I cant find the passion I once did for creating content, (and) it feels like recycling another challenge video only draws me (further) away from it.”
