Actually you'll be 3-5 years behind your peers with similar backgrounds and education who follow traditional career paths and use their degrees. You'll be at a competitive disadvantage in every job interview you ever have, all other things being equal.

I'm pretty sure that unless she's a total moron, she can find something else to do besides camwhoring/Starbucks.

Look, I get what you're saying, but it's logical to do the video game stuff if it pays 84k a year instead of starting a "real job" at 50k. Do you really think that "traditional jobs" are bulletproof and guarantee you lifelong employment? This isn't the 50s brah.

And yet every day there are a dozen threads on this board filled with Millennials complaining about the job market and bemoaning the fact that the "Boomers" won't hire them. Make up your mind, faggot.

but it's logical
What's logical is to take a long-term perspective and not let the lure of short-term cash derail your future. You only one go around. Put yourself behind your peers in the business world and you never catch up. Never.

Does cashing in for short-term gain make sense? Maybe, but only if OP's future earning potential is low. Because in the future they'll never be able to maintain that level of income.

Remember the story about that one twitch star who successfully made the leap the corporate success, getting the best of both worlds? Yeah, me neither.

What is "long-term success" for you..
Not particularly relevant to this thread, to be honest. I'm not the one who put my career choices and mistakes as the topic of a thread on an anonymous public forum.

The only relevant question is what are your long-terms (if any) and what is your plan (if any) to achieve them?

I expect some bullshit reply (like you've already given) that includes some vague assumption that the "next great thing" will present itself automatically at the exact time needed, and that you current choices will have no adverse impact on your future financial status. Usually your type expects either:

1) that your current media success (if any) will continue indefinitely;

2) that you'll advance in the media industry and become a highly compensated media executive (the "white unicorn" approach); or

3) that you'll seamlessly resume a more traditional career path in the future with no repercussions from your decisions to effectively disappear from the adult world for 2-5 years.

I hate to be a wet blanket in your thread, especially since I'm sure you were hoping for positive reinforcement for your "desireable" financial situation. I'm sure you'll get some of that here. But we're not all deluded children.

Evilember

So you aren't even capable of defining the terms you like to preach about AND you assume that everything inevitably ends in failure/exile from the business world because reasons. Silly millennial.

Here's your reply.

SniperWish

because reasons
To be fair, I think I've been pretty explicit about the reasons why I think you're whoring your long-term potential for short-term gain. That you dismiss my points as "because reasons" says more about your state of mind than the validity of my concerns.

Silly millennial
Another deflection tactic. Since you seem to have no articulate response to the points I made, you seek to diminish them by attack me personally. By suggesting that I'm too young to make a cogent argument, you avoid the need to address the merits of the argument itself.

Look, I get it. Your defensiveness is perfectly natural. I don't expect you to admit in this thread that you may be making tragic mistakes in the trajectory of your life, no matter how obvious it may be to an outside observer. You're likely too wrapped up in your current cocoon of media attention to have an honest perspective anyway.

But perhaps, hopefully, on a subconscious level, you'll absorb some of this.

AwesomeTucker
AwesomeTucker

One again, I see what you mean (not OP btw) and your assumptions are fairly reasonable. The thing is that nowadays, they can be applied to "traditional" jobs too. The world is changing exponentially fast, and "job stability" is a thing of the past. Sure, there might be some jobs where you have nearly-bulletproof stability, but they are the exception rather than the rule.

The days of working 40 years for the same company are dying. Are you aware of this fact?

uhh, he's pretty spot on. Have fun getting any job and then getting all your history brought up and all the co workers now know what you look like naked and snicker.

Harmless_Venom
Harmless_Venom

Yes, the employment world is changing. Loyalty (such as it ever existed) is pretty scarce these days, and both employers and employees are willing and able to make expedient changes that suit their best interests. Job hunting and hiring technology (e.g., monster.com) have only accelerated the pace.

And yet, the fundamentals still apply. Experience is still the highest regarded trait by employers, and the most valuable asset of employees. As I'm sure you know, we even see odd the odd trend of entry level positions that require experience, paradoxically.

Furthermore, with very limited exceptions, being a "content creator" or "online media personality" (or whatever euphemism you want to use for youtubers, twichers, and the like) is not recognized as "legitimate" job experience by employers. It's basically a black hole in your resume. This isn't going to change anytime soon, if ever. This has always been true of "creative" jobs, long before they became capable of being monetized on the internet.

Now if you have no other prospects in life, then maybe cashing in makes sense if you happen to be the rare case of someone who can actually make money with online content. But your shelf life is inherently very short, and even more so for a female streamer who capitalizes on their physical attributes. So if you have the intelligence and education to have a professional career (as OP implies they do) then you'd be foolish not to consider the cost of putting yourself behind your peers.

One of the smartest things I've seen posted on this board was when someone pointed out that all wealth is relative. It's not about what you have; it's about what you have compared to others. Sometime keeping pace is actually winning, because falling behind is most certainly losing.

She's not doing anything unique or marketable, and she's not an expert in any game, or she would have sold herself as something other than a girl who plays video games for cash.

If she wants to succeed in the field, she either needs to build content that doesn't depend on her looks for popularity, or she needs to become a professional caster in a high dollar game. Even then, there's no long term guarantee until you're making enough money to get traditional media outlets interested. For every pewdie pie there's a hundred "chocolate rain" guys.

Don't listen to the meme of "you don't want to be behind your peers as they work on long term careers".

Regarding the rest of your post, what you said is true. However, you take for granted that OP's life goal is to succeed in her career and make as much money as possible. While this is a sensible assumption, given that this goal is the main goal of the majority of the population, it doesn't necessarily mean that OP's hapiness revolves around having a "real career" and climbing the ladder. Maybe she just wants to make fast bucks, save and invest most of it, then work part-time as a cashier afterwards to pay for her basic needs. There's nothing inherently wrong with that. Different strokes for different folks.

Also, you seem to deny that nowadays, many many people start school and/or careers really late (in their thirties and even fourties), and while they are often faced with a competitive disadvantage over their younger peers, they are still able to get employed and succeed.
You make it seem like it's a matter of life or death, when it's not.

it doesn't necessarily mean that OP's hapiness revolves around having a "real career" and climbing the ladder. Maybe she just wants to make fast bucks, save and invest most of it, then work part-time as a cashier afterwards to pay for her basic needs.
It's pretty clear OP is interested in financial success, and not just "happiness" or "contentment." You don't make a thread bragging about your income unless you're keeping score.

As for cashing in now and coasting, it's not going to work. There's no chance OP can make enough now to have a retirement with the same standard of living that she's currently experiencing. People drastically under-estimate the amount of money needed to maintain a standard of living when their income stops or drops dramatically. This is exacerbated by the extended length of time such a fund would have to survive. OP would need to earn MANY multiples of her claimed income to actually build a sustainable reserve that could last a lifetime. And that's assuming no serious financial setbacks and perfect financial discipline for a lifetime. That's just not realistic.

Furthermore, people who go from high incomes to low incomes traditionally have serious adjustment issues. Even retirees, who have a lifetime to prepare for the change in their financial situation, struggle with the transition. A 20-something kid is going to have major problems, further jeopardizing any long-term plans.

while they are often faced with a competitive disadvantage over their younger peers
That's what I've been saying all along. I never said it was a death sentence or that OP was foreclosing the possibility of future financial success and advancement. Just that she was making things much harder on herself - that there is a price to her decision to pursue a nontraditional job at the time her peers are building their careers.

Decisions have consequences, and OP has shown that she is blind to the consequences of her decisions. That's just stupid.

Yeah, all those twitch interns are raking in the bucks. And I'm sure Google has scores of high-paying jobs on standby for minor Youtube celebrities. Get real.

And there's the not insignificant chance she could scale to make a lot more
But the chances are insignificant. Literally. Statistically insignificant. We're talking lottery odds here. We don't call that sound financial planning. That's called gambling with your future.

Losers like you are free to gamble with their futures because -- let's face it -- you don't much to lose. No offense, but you weren't going anywhere anyway. But OP claims to have a degree and claims to have designs on a more traditional career when the easy money inevitably dries up. And yet she thinks there's no consequences of leaving the adult world for 3-5 years? That's called denial.

Generating $7K/month revenue in a sales capacity is meaningless since you have to consider your cost of goods sold and your overhead. Any adult would know this.

And for the record, I am most decidedly not jealous of OP's financial situation. Being a professional internet streamer is actually pretty difficult. Even the females who cash in on their physical attributes have to work hard to make it a sustained income stream. Either way, you have to deal carefully with the NEETs, virgins, and trolls that fill twitch and youtube. Only neckbeards like you guys think it's as easy as "play games; get money."

I'm sure for guys like you, OP's situation would be very enviable. As I already said above, someone with meager future financial prospects would be lucky to be in OP's shoes. (I guess reading isn't among your core skills.)

But OP made the claim that she'd be able to switch seamlessly to a traditional career when the internet money dries up (as it inevitably will). That's deluded, for the reasons I explained.

Perhaps instead of being obsessed with me or obsessed with OP, you guys could actually discuss the topic of the thread? Because you both sound like giant white knight faggot shitposters.

There is people working in factories in the US doing hard phyiscal labor for 8+ hours a day and they're making 1/3rd - 1/4th of what OP is making per year, for sitting in her house giggling with horny boys on twitch and playing videogames.

There is people who finish Accounting degrees(studying like crazy a bunch of boring shit) just to work 50-60 hrs/week and make about, or usually UNDER what OP makes per year playing videogames.

Which of those three is harder to do?

But OP made the claim that she'd be able to switch seamlessly to a traditional career when the internet money dries up (as it inevitably will). That's deluded, for the reasons I explained

It's not insanely difficult. People have started careers later. Especially something like marketing wouldn't be impeded on by being a videogayme streamer.

eGremlin

The context of my statement was creative jobs that employers look at and essentially give no credit for. So they stand as a black hole in your resume. I think it's pretty obvious this would include almost any creative enterprise that someone tried in a professional capacity: e.g., artist, performer, writer.

It's not that these are inherently meritless undertakings; but rather that they are viewed as having little to no translatable value in a more traditional employment scenario. Same is true of any other "holes" in your resume. Travelled the world for 2 years? Liability. Taught English to starving African children? Liability. Dropped out to care for your sick mother? Liability.

No one said it was fair. Right or wrong, these things are often perceived as indicating someone who is perhaps a bit flighty, unfocused, unstructured (and therefore unreliable, unmotivated, etc.). That's just how most employers are going to view things (whether they admit it or not). I'm sure exceptions will exist, especially if the employer or the position is creative itself. But in most situations, this is just the reality.

It would be nice if we lived in world where everyone had the luxury to "chase their dreams" or "proceed at their own pace." But its fantasy, pure and simple. Late starters are almost always at a disadvantage. Maybe its possible to overcome that disadvantage; maybe not. But when its a self-inflicted disadvantage, like OP, then you have to be smart and do the long-term math.

I call bullshit. NV doesn't have a state tax but your still susceptible to fed income tax. I'm doubtful you'd be able to prove you spend 1.3x your income as itemized deductions to make you tax exempt.

It also required you to provide proof of residency, which means you live/have a physical address in nevada.

tl;dr? she's a fraud, committing fraud.

Good thing prostitution is legal in NV cause i can't wait till the franchise tax boards audits your ass.

How anyone can say Capitalism is metiracratic and is a good way to distribute resources needs only look at the modern camwhore.

They can make a sizable living without ever doing anything productive. They are, in a way, a monopoly, because there is only one of that grl and the reject who give her money cannot get her anywhere else.

I can't fault his logic, so I'll goad him about his age

I'm almost 30, been working white collar technology jobs since I was 19. The guy you're responding to is 100% correct. No one takes twitch streaming seriously, just like no one takes YouTube content generators seriously outside a handful of movie studios.

OP is about to get fucked by the long capitalist dong once she's no longer attractive enough to garner an audience. She's going to be 28 with no marketable skills, an expensive lifestyle to maintain, and she'll be 5 years behind her average peer.

If she'd worked a traditional job and honed a skill, she could be making more money anyway. 100k is about average for a competent white collar employee who is independent and self directed, once they've built a skill set worth paying for.

What do I know, though, I'm just a jelly neckbeard right? I mean if you can't attack the logic, ad hom is always an option.

The twitch.tv audience is overwhelmingly young (<25) males with no college degree, aka the dumbest segment of the population/most "Muh dick". Which is super weird because it's also overwhelmingly Asian. I get that video games are a very Asian pastime but what Asian doesn't get a degree? Unless they just aren't old enough to have gotten one yet.

What's logical is to take a long-term perspective and not let the lure of short-term cash derail your future. You only one go around. Put yourself behind your peers in the business world and you never catch up. Never.

Totally, yep. Totally traded away my time & my future for wagecuckery.

Again, you know nothing about me, and are assuming pretty fucking hard. I have ~$2k/mo in passive income through real estate, and while I generate more value than I get paid for at my day job, I also don't have to take my work home with me (like most IT people), only have a 40-hour week, get paid 6 figures, have a corner office with a decent view of downtown, and best of all, I actually enjoy going to work. I mean, I'm posting on an ivory scroll rune board during the work day ffs, and it's actually considered a productive use of my time by my bosses! They appreciate my unique research & insight.

Guess I'm just a sad excuse for a human being, doomed to a lifetime of stable income, low-stress work, sliding into a stress-free retirement at 40 financed by passive income through real estate; woe is me.

If I were interviewing someone who had been a video game streamer for a period of a few years, I would ask them why they chose that profession. If their answer was "I made over $70K per year and worked my own hours and didn't even have a morning commute", I would probably be fine with that. I'd certainly like it better than someone working at a starbucks or fast food joint, since starting a twitch channel and starting your own LLC and making way more money than the average person in their demographic shows some entrepreneurial spirit.

Tons of people/small business incorporate out of state for tax reasons. Hell, the state of Delaware basically staked their entire economic model on the concept.

Need_TLC
Need_TLC

I'm not sure why you need to post the obvious, It's clearly better than working in fast food or not working at all. That's a complete strawman.

We talking about someone who claims to have a degree and claims to have plans to enter the professional world.

You have to have a physical presence in the state to establish residency (personal or corporate) in order to fall under the state's tax laws. If she's incorporated in some random state as to which she has no connection, its tax fraud (unless she's actually also paying in her state of residency). Maybe she'll get away it; maybe not.

Ya you pay for a PO box and that's it. I think in NM you pay for someone to sign for your mail too and that's all the presence required by law. Its not fraud, You're just misinformed.
All in all its like $200 a year for the service if memory serves. Tons of virtual offices and corporate receivers have an easy gig on the side.

Then you file as foreign corporation in your home state and that's that.

but she's doing business on the internet so it doesn't trucking matter unless her goods cross state lines, but since there is nothing physical no goods move. Her corporate accountants use nevada law and her personal uses her home state if she earns a salary which is doubtful, if she does it likely under cap gains from a partnership.

strive away from ignorance user.

LLCs do not pay income tax. They are passthrough entities. Their owners pay income tax based on the income passed through to them, so OP would pay personal income tax on the income allocated to her from the LLC based on her state of residence, but there would be no income tax at the business level regardless of what state it is incorporated in.

ZeroReborn
ZeroReborn

I think both the OP and poster here are on the opposite sides of the spectrum and I think reality falls somewhere in between them.

OP is not going to easily walk into some company with a smile on her face and job ready to go.

But OP is also not likely to become a deadbeat after the streaming career.

OP is pretty aware that her situation is likely to not last in the long run and has at least the awareness that she should be building some skills or connections along the side. There's a lot more work to those two than it sounds so it will not be a cakewalk but I don't think she's going to be screwed

Also it helps if OP isn't blowing their cash but who knows

It's tough trying to make your resume look valuable though when you take private ventures, I can relate. You want to prove that the experience stated is worth while to the employer but you also don't want to stroke or your cock too much or bullshit the employer on certain things. HR can also use your success as a reason to not hire you, it can be hard to sell to a company that you're ready to commit 5+ years (you don't have to but that's what they'd like to hear)

Good luck OP and to anyone else out there doing their own thing

I'm sorry you're not familiar with the concept of agency.

How are 90% of corporations filed in delaware user? yet the IRS doesn't care.

Emberburn
Emberburn

Corporations file in Delaware because Delaware has a set of pro-business corporate statutes, pro-business governing law, and pro-business courts. Those that want to take advantage of the tax laws actually establish a physical presence in the state, like most of the major credit card companies and many insurance underwriters.

Tax laws in the US are not the same as China. Please stick to anime or other topics you might understand.

Nah Minneapolis, but I work for an f500. I am an expert in my field though, and I'm actually probably slightly underpaid. I have a good work life balance though and plenty of free time to pursue my passions, so I'm basically just coasting until I hit $1mm in liquid assets and I have a few rentals paid off. Then I'll live off my rental income, raise a family, and eventually move to the Carolinas I think.
