Millenials on a mission: How young entrepreneurs are taking the internet by storm

Millenials on a mission:  How young entrepreneurs are taking the internet by storm

If someone said at the turn of the millennium, that making videos in your bedroom and uploading them to YouTube, or posting blogs (did they even exist?!) could earn you millions, you would think they were crazy.

But as the internet continues to develop, young entrepreneurs are proving that the web offers a platform of never-ending opportunities to speak to billions of people (and make a packet!) from the comfort of their own home.

Using platforms such as YouTube and Instagram, these millenials have grown their audiences to dizzying heights by blogging their day-to-day life, giving make-up tutorials, showing how to cook recipes and influencing millions across the world.

This ever growing online community are fast becoming huge influencers and world-renowned talents. From the comfort of their bedrooms, they are now running fashion and beauty lines, releasing books and changing the face of modern media.

Here a few you may recognise…

Zoe Sugg aka Zoella


From filming her first video’60 things in my bedroom’ back in 2009, Zoella has amounted over 8 million fans through weekly vlogs on her YouTube channel.

Zoella has recently released her own beauty range and first novel, which broke the record for highest first week sales since records began.

At the tender age of 25, Zoella is earning over £20,000 per month from advertisers alone, and has just bought a townhouse in Brighton worth over £1 million.
