My boyfriend is self employed and is on public assistant (ie ebt, Medicare, etc)? This person is 28, lives on his own with housemates, has a 60k brokerage account, and has an emergency savings fund. But he doesn’t make pursuing his passion of being a YouTube (he has 150k subs and makes about 12k a year atm based on last year). He projects growth and he’s ambitious, driven, enterprising, hard working, but I do feel a little concerned.

So he’s unemployed and cheats the system. That is concerning.

Personally I wouldn't find that very singular focus of putting all his eggs in the YouTube basket reassuring but that's totally up to you. How long is he going to try to make YouTube work FT before he needs to pursue something else?

I thought people could make a lot more than $12k with 150k subs on YouTube, but I guess it depends on what type of content his channel focuses on and if he has sponsorships

10 years ago yes. But as the average number of subscribers per channel increases, adcents has decreased. YouTube is no longer a cash cow in the same way it was in the golden years of being a content creator for the platform.

Once you hit about 500k subs, have a constant stream of content, you start to get some larger income. Plus brand deals and usually that comes along with you also streaming on twitch and making money there.

How does he qualify for public assistance? Medicare? Isn’t he too young?

Please advise: Have an offer for my positive cash flow rental property that’d net me ~$50K. Reasons I don’t think I should sell 1) I don’t need the cash in the near term 2) I will not be able find an alternate investment better than this to put my cash towards 3) interest rate on this is 3.5% and I won’t be able to finance a property at that rate any time in the near future.
Reason to sell 1) what if there’s a crash next year or rates go back down to attractive levels to scoop up good deals.
