Tech Savvy or Business Genius? Well, Jake Tran is the perfect combination of both, and it’s his towering brilliance and intelligent creations that make him one of the most popular YouTubers in the world.
From time to time again, the talent powerhouse has bowled his 1.23 million Youtube subscribers with highly produced, intellectual YouTube videos about diverse niches: namely economics, geopolitics, business, power, and crime.
While success came quickly to Jake Tran in terms of the time, the path to success was anything but a bed of roses. Born in Saigon, Vietnam, young Jake, who relocated to Southern California with his family when he was two years old, always had a curious mind, open to learning. Tran later proved himself to be a force to reckon with, be it excelling in academics or learning and teaching taekwondo while still in high school
Long before soaring high as a popular YouTuber, Jake dipped his toes in many ventures and was met with disappointing results. Even when he started a YouTube channel related to Taekwondo, he wasn’t able to gain more than five thousand subscribers.
Quitting Youtube seemed to be his only option. He then enrolled in community college to study Computer Science, and contemplated becoming an artificial intelligence researcher.
However, his vision suddenly cleared when he read “The Millionaire Fastlane” by MJ Demarco on a friend’s recommendation, and discovered his true calling – being an entrepreneur.
Believing that the sky’s the limit, Jake worked tirelessly and landed a dream job in web development after struggling to launch several businesses. Despite all his accomplishments at the young age of 19, the creative side in him continues to brew a storm. Ultimately, he turned back to Youtube. This time, he was met with unprecedented fate when his video “Why Graham Stephan is Killing the YouTube Algorithm” became his claim to fame.
Today, creative content creator Jake Tran has added many jewels to his crowns but the most precious one remains him being the first to popularize what he calls business video essays like ‘Why Graham Stephan is Killing the YouTube Algorithm’, “How The Ultra Wealthy Evade Taxes”, “The Economics of the Mafia” and much more.
