Hey, I'm looking at diversifying my income. I'm in finance right now but I feel like I'll never get rich rich rich (5 mil assets by 35-40 at least) working a job.

I'm thinking about doing YouTube as a side hustle. Specifically, starting a YouTube on men's fashion, because I spend a ton of time thinking about fashion so I might as well try to monetize this hobby. I'm aware that I'm likely top 5% at least in breaking down fashion/outfits - I regularly see other fashion YouTubers and think "your knowledge is shit, I'm better".

I don't see any downsides in doing this other than snickers from acquaintances (irrelevant). Don't think this will hurt my political standing in my firm (who can hate on a guy making fashion videos for fun, especially if it's not overtly monetized? - especially since it's not about something like dating/Tinder. Gonna steer far away from those topics and stick to menswear only).

The obvious answer is "just do it for ~10 videos, and then see what your engagement is like - by then, if you're good/have natural talent in this, you'll know - if you're not good know, you'll also know", but any thoughts?

Best path to monetizing this would be sponsorships/ads and then eventually starting my own brand. But I'm doing this mostly because I spend so much time and energy buying/thinking about clothes that it seems like a waste not to try and build a brand/presence off of it.

Very aware that I should just fucking do it and see what the results are and stop thinking so much.

Thanks.

Well, there you go. Go for it!

I was in a similar position for a year. This forum basically pushed me to start my side hustle, too.

@JamalHash123

I did it while in college. It supported me during that time. (I need to get off my ass and start rebuilding it)

Just be aware... It will/ may take a while before any decent income starts to come in since you're not selling a service and the market is super saturated..

well, actually you could do fashion consults and charge for that...

Just think about it in these terms... Who's my audience, what's my offer and how will I monetize it.
