If there is something the 21st century has driven inside us, it is the belief that to be successful in life, you don’t always need hard work. Sometimes, it’s worth using a quirky method or trying something that no one ever thought of. For, everyone wants to be special and in the event that they can’t, they want to be at least associated with someone special.
And life teaches us that instead of working hard, we actually need to be smart. The sheep graze throughout the day and yet it is the wolf that wins.
Here are 8 famous teenagers who got famous doing the quirkiest things:
1. Danielle Bregoli
Who can forget this loud-mouthed teenager when she appeared on Dr Phil? Now, her abrasive nature has attracted several contracts and headhunters and she has also released a few songs. Her life was catapulted to the spotlight because of her rude behaviour and her exclamation of “Cash me ou’sside. How bout’ dah’?” This soon became a social media sensation and she landed a career that promised chaos.
2. Jordan Maron
This guy is every teenager’s dream because he spent his youth playing Minecraft and getting rich. His gaming videos were uploaded on Youtube after which he got enough popularity which allowed him to quit school and follow his passion as a Youtuber while making a lot of money.
3. Gary Martin
The real estate tycoon, Gary Martin, started his business when he was 17. Now, that could be most disconcerting, with school and studies. But this guy had it in him to prove himself as the best. Initially, he was in charge of a pub and now his earnings trump most people in their prime.
4. Abby Bleck
She got famous for showing the world the way bacon should be cooked. Starting really early, she has become quite popular and earns a lot of money.
5. Courtney Stodden
Her claim to fame was marrying an uber-rich man at a pretty young age. Before child marriage claims in, the man had asked the permission of her parents and had waited for her to reach legal age, after which he married her. Now, Courtney learns acting from her husband.
6. Mike McDonald
Sometimes, the wrong things can have the right results. With his parents not liking his poker addiction and asking him to get a good job, Mike’s life changed when he decided to live by his own rules, playing poker and turning into the millionaire he is now.
7. Maddie Bradshaw
She is a prime example of someone who got famous from a quirky idea. It all started when she decided to upload videos of her decorating her furniture with bottle caps. Soon, people came to know about her and her business started to grow as everyone wanted her to decorate their residences.
8. Matt Wegrzyn
He is probably the smartest in this list, for he started selling his domain name at really high prices. This continued for some time, when Matt convinced more and more people to buy his domain name, thus ensuring the humongous income coming his way.
