Today we’re joined by Thomas Frank, a YouTube creator with over 2.8m subscribers on his main channel and 138k subscribers on his Notion-focused channel, Thomas Frank Explains. He started out helping ambitious college students study better and pivoted to the self-help/personal development niche. He’s a creator in every sense, going from YouTube videos to writing books, making courses and even launching his own platform with creator friends. Now though, a good chunk of his income is coming from selling Notion templates, making over $100k p/m consistently.
