Do you know who Amouranth is? Unless you’re on Twitch or other streaming platforms, you may not have a clue. Suffice it to say that she has become a star on Twitch. That said, you may still not know what she’s really all about. If you’re interested, here are 20 things about her, listed below.
1. She’s made a lot of money from her endeavors
It wasn’t really that long ago that it would have been virtually impossible to make a great deal of money from a social media platform alone, but those days are long gone. In fact, she has made more money from her videos, which she posts to Twitch, than a lot of people will ever see working full-time throughout their entire lives. She’s not terribly keen on sharing exactly how much money she’s made, but it is known that it’s somewhere in the millions.
2. She’s learning about taxes
It’s important to remember that she’s relatively young. As such, she’s just learning about things like taxes. Unfortunately, this is a lesson that everybody has to learn at one time or another. For her, the learning curve is steep because she’s made so much money from her online endeavors. Fortunately, she seems to have it all in hand, as more will be discussed about her finances later on.
3. She bought two gas stations, one of them for an outlandish price
One way that she decided to deal with the tax issue was to buy a couple of gas stations. As a matter of fact, the first purchase was merely for tax purposes. She had stated that she was set to owe approximately $6 million in federal taxes. By purchasing the gas station, it lowered her taxes by approximately $2 million. Of course, that prompted her to consider buying a second gas station, which she eventually did. Now that she has accomplished this goal, she plans to keep both gas stations and serve as a co-owner for each one, allowing her to make some passive income in something that is completely unrelated to Twitch or any of her other activities.
4. She knows what she’s doing when it comes to her finances
As you can see, she tends to know what she’s doing when it comes to her finances. She might be young, but she has learned how to use certain assets to both lower her tax bill and generate additional income at the same time. Truth be told, this is something that a lot of people who are at least twice her age struggle to understand. Fortunately for her, she’s making more than enough money to cover her tax bill, but she’s also learning how to navigate all of her finances legally without losing a ton of money in the process.
5. She has an enormous following on Twitch
Merely saying that she’s popular on Twitch would be a gross understatement. As a matter of fact, she routinely features at the very top of the list when it comes to popularity. Furthermore, she’s been at the top of the list for quite some time. It seems that people just can’t get enough of her and the videos that she posts. Having learned how to monetize those videos early on, she has essentially tapped into a gold mine that might not work for everyone, but it is certainly working out quite well for her.
6. She’s actually gained enough popularity to become her own category
There’s no doubt about it, some people just have what it takes to succeed on these types of sites because for one reason or another, they are able to connect with the audience on a different level from the average person who posts. She is definitely one of those individuals. In fact, virtually any category that she chooses to post in skyrockets in popularity, even to the point where many have said that she could almost become her own category. While that hasn’t happened for obvious reasons, it is worth noting that anytime she decides to post on a particular category, you can bet that’s the category that will soar in popularity for that particular day.
7. She’s said to have more than one million more hours of time viewed than other Twitch stars
As a matter of fact, she has a tendency to absolutely dwarf everyone around her. At the moment, her popularity shows no signs of waning. In fact, it was only this past September that she was getting three times as many hours watched per month as she had the previous month.
8. She typically averages more than three million hours watched every month
That’s saying a lot when you consider the fact that she typically averages more than three million hours watched every 30 days. That’s a tremendous amount of hours watched and it serves as a testament to her popularity. It’s also why she has made so much money through this particular site alone. By monetizing virtually everything she posts, she’s ensuring herself a decent income. Even if she’s not making a great deal from every individual view, it all adds up to a great deal of money at the end of the month when you’re talking about hours viewed at this rate.
9. She’s not even 30 yet
She’s immensely popular and she’s a millionaire, but she’s only 27 years old. She admits that having that much fame and money at such a young age can potentially come with a number of challenges, but she has handled all of those challenges extremely well thus far. She’s not always well liked on Twitch, and that’s actually part of the reason that she is as popular as she is. Having said that, she definitely knows how to plan for her future as far as her finances are concerned. She has a tendency to think ahead and she doesn’t put all of her eggs in one basket.
10. She’s often controversial
As previously mentioned, she often has a tendency to be rather controversial in many of her posts. The posts are controversial for different reasons, but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of middle ground when it comes to people who are aware of her presence on the site. They either love her or they hate her. Clearly, a lot of people enjoy watching the things that she posts. As far as the ones who aren’t so crazy about her, it’s interesting to note that she actually gets more views because of them, largely because they have a tendency to post things on the site about her in a negative light. She herself admits that this only serves to increase the curiosity of other individuals. As such, she gets more views than ever and she makes more money.
11. She doesn’t think it will last
She’s also commented that she doesn’t believe for one second that this popularity will last. She says that she has no idea how long her popularity on the site will continue at this level, but she can only expect it to eventually decline, probably significantly. As such, she has plenty of other things lined up that can earn her significant income and she’s doing things like the convenience stores to create a passive income that allows her to make money no matter what she’s doing. Considering the amount of money she’s already made from the site, it seems that she’s setting herself up well for the rest of her life from a financial standpoint.
12. She actually spends several hours a day creating content
If you think creating post for a social media site is incredibly easy, think again. For her, it is a full-time job just like anyone else would have a job but they would go to everyday. As a matter of fact, she spends hours creating post every single day. She has to come up with and idea to run with and then shoot the video see, being careful to get everything as close to right as possible. She then spends an enormous amount of time editing everything and putting it together so that it’s just right.
13. She puts a variety of different videos on the site
One of the reasons that she puts a variety of different videos on the site across all categories is because it gives her an opportunity to get as many hours viewed as possible. If she were only focusing on a single category or she posted about the same thing all the time, it would only stand to reason that it would reduce the number of people that are interested in viewing her content. She’s all about making as much money as possible. As a result, she’s going to expand her horizons a bit and reach as many people as she can.
14. She has been actively developing her passive income for some time
As previously mentioned, she has been working on creating an effective passive income for some time now. She wants to be able to have something that is constantly making money, even when she’s not actively involved in the process. That’s one thing that working on these videos for hours every day has taught her. In order to truly be able to enjoy life and do what she wants at some point, she has to have enough money that she doesn’t have to work all the time. Realizing that it’s important to have savings and keep money back for retirement, she’s all about creating a passive income so that she can put the majority of what she’s already made in savings and then use her passive income to live off of comfortably without having to work all hours of the day.
15. She wants to change misconceptions about her job
She’s not particularly crazy about the fact that people tend to have misconceptions about her and people like her, who happen to have the type of job that she has. The public’s idea of having a job like hers involves a lot of sitting around, sleeping late and spending tons of money, all while doing almost nothing. Admittedly, she can spend as much money as she chooses within reason, but she also works very hard for it. As a matter of fact, she tends to put in more hours than most people who have a 40 hour week job would even consider doing.
16. She wants to open an animal shelter someday
It’s interesting to note that at some point in the future, she wants to open an animal shelter and use at least some of the money that she’s currently earning in order to fund it. She has repeatedly stated that she doesn’t want to rely on donations in order for it to operate because she has seen how these types of operations are forced to run on a shoestring budget. Instead, she wants to lavish the animals in her shelter with everything they need and then some.
17. She plans to work with these animals when she retires
She also wants to spend a great deal of time with the animals after she retires. She herself has said that she has a genuine love for animals. She also laughs at the idea of retiring at a relatively young age, stating that a lot of people have a hard time believing that someone might retire when they’re in their forties. However, that is precisely what she’s aiming at. Although she doesn’t have any firm date set as of yet, she says that she wants to have time to enjoy things in life without having to work as much as she does right now.
18. She works as much as she can in order to make as much as possible
For the moment, she works as much as possible in order to make the maximum amount of money that she can. As far as she’s concerned, she feels like it’s worth the trade-off to work a lot now and be able to enjoy things more later on as opposed to goofing off now and then trying to play catch-up with her finances when she’s older.
19. She’s been banned from social media, a lot
To date, she’s been banned from Twitch numerous times, as well as Instagram and Tik Tok. The reasons are as varied as the videos she posts. In every case thus far, the bans were eventually reversed and she was allowed to post again.
20. Even if they banned her for life, she still has plenty of money coming in
She might use Twitch to make money, but she will still have plenty if they ban her for life. She has a lot of money saved up and she makes a solid income from many other sources as well.
