Content creation as a career choice is no joke. What most people don't know is that a lot of thought and effort go into making a single video or even an IG post. Many of this generation's top influencers are also full-time students, so you can just imagine how hectic their schedules can be.
Still, this doesn't deter these digital creators from exploring other ventures, including launching their very own businesses. In fact, a handful of Gen Z YouTubers are also business-savvy, carrying the title and responsibilities of a "business owner" on top of their other daily duties.
Curious? Here are eight Gen Z YouTubers and the businesses they launched:
1. Claudine Co
YouTuber and recording artist Claudine Co is on her way to becoming a multihyphenate. Apart from creating content and making music, she's also now an entrepreneur. Claudine co-owns a new restaurant called Jacob's Wing Bistro which recently opened a branch in Albay, Bicol in March 2022.
