YouTubers are typically wealthier than they admit, often downplaying their net worth to appear more relatable.

This is based on the value of his home, car, stock portfolio and online business.

πŸš€ The X-Factor

His channel isn’t as popular as it was in 2020 and 2021. Some of his audience feel that the worst days are behind us and are moving forward with their lives.

He’s in a relationship with Laura Gallacher, however, they aren’t married. They do share two children together.

πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’» My Verdict

I’d never imagined in a million years that a comedian would become a trusted journalist, but yet, here we are.

About Me

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 Russell Brand make and how?

You’d be surprised by the earnings of some creators.

Russell Brand makes a remarkable $169,000 per month on YouTube.

He does this through:

➜ Numerous brand sponsorships

➜ YouTube ads (although they try to demonetize him all the time)

➜ Paid subscriptions to his podcast

➜ Sales of his exclusive merchandise

He’s treating his content like a real business, despite already having wealth earned from his Hollywood days.

He also makes money from his annual camping/music event called Community.

Creator Praise

Many people across the world LOVE Russell because:

➜ He simply reports and allows people to make their own decision

➜ He reports the worst with a sense of humor (how is that even possible?)

➜ He really digs into the far left and the issues they’ve brought us

➜ He has been riding incredibly close to the line for so many years

And most importantly, he’s become a voice for those who believe in personal freedom.

But even if you’re not into his theories and prefer his deep dives, then he does interview some icons such as Graham Hancock:

Creator Red Flags

Despite his fame, Russell Brand isn’t without some controversy. These include:

➜ An ongoing period of Substance use (that really hurt his reputation)

➜ He’s vegan and has annoyed so many meat eaters

➜ YouTube Fact-Checkers simply hate him for his honesty

That said, he remains highly optimistic and knows that his message is touching the right cords.

Quotes by Russell Brand

He’s said some iconic things during his career as a comedian, but I prefer to look at the truth-revealing gentlemen that we have today.

Some of Russell’s most notable quotes in 2023 include:

➜ “Hello you amazing 6 million wonders!”

➜ “The people just need to know.”

➜ “Maybe if we awaken individually”

➜ “The algorithms are against us”

➜ “While propaganda is flowing fast”

➜ “Keep that truth coming!”

➜ “Some people believe there’s a correlation between…”

➜ “I love when they come up with these new terms”

➜ “It’s a good song, yeah!”

➜ “Let’s get some perspective”

➜ “What happened to clean-cut language?”

➜ “It’s almost as if they’re trying to bury something…”

Let me guess – you read all of those in his own, unique voice of truth? πŸ˜ƒ

My Verdict

I often watch his videos and interviews on YouTube. From watching so many videos, there are key lessons that can propel our lives forward, both on a business and personal level.

I love this quote in particular:

With so many mainstream media companies saying Russell Brand is crazy/dangerous, I watched some of his videos. Ironically, he seemed more balanced & insightful than those condemning him! The groupthink among major media companies is more troubling. There should be more dissent.

My key takeaways include:

➜ Stay free and trust your own soul

➜ Speak up for what you truly believe in

➜ Find people who support your vision

➜ Discover your new tribe (there are plenty of us out here!)

➜ Rewards come to those who work hard

And realize that there is no time like the present to start earning your personal freedom.

That’s through becoming self-reliant and building your own freedom-based online business.

Of course, growing your own food and detaching yourself (where possible) from 3rd parties.

So from one fan of Russell Brand to another, I look forward to crossing paths real soon! 😊
