I Help Beginners Build Profitable Websites
Welcome to the ultimate analysis of Ali Abdaal for 2024.
I’ve spent thousands of hours watching successful business educators on YouTube. Ali was a recommendation by Gael Breton from Authority Hacker, a fantastic podcast that I listen to each month.
The goal of these profiles is to show you the different ways people have built 6 and 7-figure businesses online, so you can see what it takes to find your own success, starting today.
Ali Abdaal At A Glance
💡Full Name and Age
Ali Abdaal is 28 years old.
🤑 Net Worth
He’s gone from near-broke to multi-millionaire in just a few years.
As of 2024, Ali Abdaal has a net worth of $3,700,000 USD based on his investments and business income.
He was a doctor prior to going all in on YouTube and reached his goals around 20 years earlier than expected. I’m glad he did as many of us wouldn’t be the same without him.
🤩 Income Streams
He makes money from YouTube ads, affiliate marketing, his own courses/masterclasses, brand sponsorships and some consulting.
Ali lives in London.
Many people love his productivity tips, study advice, straight-forward advice and life hacks.
❌ Notable Complaints
My only complaint is that his content can be addictive… 😂
🚀 The X-Factor
Ali found his purpose in life and ultimate career and has become a beacon of light for many people.
📈 Creator Trends
Ali has grown his audience significantly over the last few years, but how growth is starting to stagnate as most people know about him.
🕵🏻♂️ Private Life
Ali Abdaal was NEVER dating Sheen Gurrib who now resides in Dubai. They were close housemates and not boyfriend/girlfriend. Ali is single but may be seeking a girlfriend or arranged marriage in the near future.
👨🏻💻 My Verdict
Like many people, I absolutely enjoy watching Ali’s videos on YouTube and he’s inspired me to create my own channel.
I’m Joshua Smith from Australia. I have been building profitable content sites since 2011.
Today, in addition to managing my own portfolio, I actively help others on their journey.
How much does Ali Abdaal make and how?
Right now, I estimate Ali makes $120,000 per month on YouTube which was higher than last year.
His income streams include:
➜ Affiliate links and brand sponsors
➜ Running ads on his channel (though not all the time)
I estimate that his best income is through his course sales. As someone who’s sold a ton of courses, the conversions on these are remarkable and so is the impact upon someone’s life.
His audience really praises him for:
➜ Getting straight to the point in his videos
➜ Following a ‘less is more’ philosophy and slowing down his video releases each week
➜ Serving his audience with super helpful content
➜ Showing people how to make career transitions
For me personally, he’s shown me how to make the most out of my days.
Ali Abdaal’s Red Flags
As I mentioned above, his content can be addictive. Now – I did search a ton to find any negativity surrounding Ali, and apart from occasional hateful comments on Reddit (as you might expect), I couldn’t find any skeletons in his closet. He’s a genuine person who has inspired millions of people.
The X Factor
The unique qualities of Ali Abdaal include:
➜ Showing how any skill or hobby can be monetized
➜ Providing insights through his own life experiences
➜ Building effective productivity systems (my favorite!)
➜ Giving us deep insights into his own life and home
And fortunately, he’s avoided the cliche young-rich-guy-with-super-car creator on YouTube, choosing to call himself a ‘Creatorpreneur’
Ultimately, I’ve learned a ton from watching Ali Abdaal’s videos on Youtube.
His smile is infectious as is his personality and style.
My key takeaways include:
➜ Find what lights you up in the morning
➜ Make the most out of every single day
➜ Work on your mindset, clarity and creativity
➜ Don’t die alone (I recommend the book of the same name)
And ultimately, spread lessons and not ego.
