AFTER starting his YouTube channel, Chris Boutté was able to make $7,000 in his most profitable month, thanks to what’s known as quiet quitting.
Quiet quitting is not actually leaving your job.
It’s where employees work only within the defined timeframe of their set schedule.
Once Chris started applying this to his own life, he saw thousands of dollars hit his bank account from his YouTube side hustle.
Chris’ fans know him as The Rewired Soul where he’s amassed over 81,000 followers on the popular platform.
After quiet quitting from his job at a drug and alcohol rehab facility, Chris realized that he had so much extra time to focus on his passions: creating quality videos and writing his book.

Chris put all of his extra time into building his YouTube platform by making content daily.
Once he started making thousands of dollars every month, and $7,000 in just one month, he realized that he could quit his full-time job and follow his passion.

After teaching himself audio and video editing, Chris realized he needed to brand himself.
Because he had so many new followers on YouTube and from his book sales, he decided to start a podcast under the same The Rewired Soul name.
Chris doesn’t even have to have to sell anything because of how YouTube pays creators with its ad revenue.
Plus, by learning affiliate marketing, he brought in another $500 to $1,000 per month.
