Bethany Mota Net Worth, Money & More
Net worth: $2.5 million
Career: YouTube Star
Bethany Noel Mota is an American video blogger from Los Banos, California. She was born on November 7, 1995 and started her YouTube channel, Macbarbie07, in 2009. She posted videos of her fashion outfits, makeup tutorial and DIY projects. Her bubbly and easy-to-relate-to personality rose her to fame. Since then, fashion companies and TV shows have sought after her.
Mota was home-schooled through most of her education except when she attended a public school from third to sixth grade. She convinced her mother to drop out and let her go back to home-schooling due to intense bullying she got from her so-called friends and classmates. This is when she decided to make YouTube like an outlet. She started watching more and more beauty tutorial videos, and soon found herself engaged in the video-making world.
Bethany’s first video was in 2009. She started her YouTube channel as a way of releasing and forgetting the stress caused by bullying. She swiftly gained followers and sponsors started coming in.
Brand retailers offered her free cosmetics and gift cards in exchange for their products appearance on her videos.
Business Insider reported in 2014 that she earned $40,000 a month on her videos. She sure is raking in a lot of money for an 18-year old girl.
Ever since Bethany became big in YouTube, the fashion industry took notice of her and grabbed this opportunity to form a partnership with her. Her influence on young and teenage girls nowadays is evident, so this will be perfect for brand retailers to utilize.
Mota has partnered with big clothing companies like Forever 21 and Aeropostale. She also released a clothing and accessories line and perfume in Aeropostale, where she designs her own collection.
This girl is on fire and nothing can stop her from dominating the fashion world. Because apparently, in 2014, she was the most-Googled fashion designer in the world! How about that, huh?
