YouTube is a great platform to earn money, regardless of your niche. The YouTube community is bigger than you think. You can find YouTube channels on any topic you can think of. People with huge subscribers and good views on their videos earn a lot of money from YouTube only. With the huge success of a YouTube channel, you can get sponsorships and make money both ways.
Antonio Centeno, formerly a marine officer, is a great example of people earning sky-high with YouTube. He has a YouTube channel with a niche fashion called Real Men Real Style.
