  1. It’s a lot more than .06 million, without a doubt. He is partners in multiple companies over one million subscribers on YouTube and an author

  2. Good for him, I like watching him on youtube . By God if there were more young men like him our nation wold not be in such a mess. I wish him continued success in whatever he chooses to do.

  3. Rob will only be worth about half this much in the near future. As it appears in court records in Denton, Texas, Rob and Sarah have filed for divorce. Sarah will assume at least half his wealth, and probably more after considering child support.
    Sarah is soon to be a wealthy, and VERY VERY attractive single young lady!

  4. Just out of curiosity..
    This might be none of my businesminis but we have noticed that sarah and the baby arent in the videos anymore? Divorce? Well regardless he is doing a great job with his videos and I enjoy watching them.
