๐Ÿ‘‰ These are the crazy things I learned last week.


1/ Can a YouTuber go from nothing to generating $100M in revenue from selling ... burgers? ๐Ÿ”

Let me introduce you to MrBeast.

Besides having many different channels with millions of subscribers and more than 1700 ghost kitchens selling his "MrBeast Burger", he is now fundraising at a $1.5B valuation. And to tell you the truth, it doesn't seem that high.

Multiple sources of income, multiple flywheels, very strong brand, and non-stop product lines.

Have you heard about MrBeast? What's your take?


2/ Is Netflix crazy?

Everyone knew that Netflix was planning to enter the game market as they added games inside their app, but the latest news shows that it is ready to launch a full cloud gaming platform. ๐ŸŽฎ

That means that Netflix will try to succeed where Google failed.


3/ While Netflix is preparing to launch a gaming platform, it's time for TikTok to "join the game"!

TikTok is releasing free games through their app next week, something that they have already tested in Vietnam.

The gaming industry is a huge and perfect fit for an audience that loves "short" entertainment.

I wonder whether TikTok will release a game console. ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ


4/ Well, it finally happened. From today, Elon Musk officially owns Twitter! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

It's for real this time. After months of legal drama and bad memes, Elon Musk has closed his $44 billion ๐Ÿ’ฐ acquisition of Twitter. Musk sealed the deal Thursday night, taking Twitter private and ousting a handful of top executives โ€” CEO Parag Agrawal included โ€” in the process.

I don't know what the future has in store for one of the world's biggest social networks, but I know this acquisition will begin a new era at Twitter!

5/ Do you want an easy life? Then you need to do the hard things first!

The easy path today makes a hard path tomorrow. The hard path today makes an easier path tomorrow.

That's all for now. See you next week! ๐Ÿš€
