Starting from the bottom and reaching unparalleled success is the path many of today's biggest streamers found themselves in, so when one as renowned as Brandon "Aceu" Winn opens up about his journey, many fans use it as inspiration to forge their path and follow their dreams.
At least this is the sentiment he's hoping to spark by revealing how he went from a struggling pizza delivery man to one of the most successful Twitch streamers in the world.

"I used to make $2000/month delivering pizzas and struggling to pay for dinner. now I make $100k/month without leaving my house. not a flex just thought it could help someone that might feel stuck like I used to," Aceu tweeted out on 1st July.
After publicly revealing a monthly estimate of his earnings, the former Apex Legends pro explained that if more content creators were open with their income, it might make viewers give smaller streamers a shot by economically supporting them instead.
tangent: a lot of people in the comp/stream community hide how much they make because they’re scared they’ll make less if people know.— brandon (@acesu) July 1, 2021
if more people were open with their contracts then everything would be more fair for everyone.
So there you have it, next time you feel down and out, remember you might become the next Aceu.
