How did Paul Piques Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on June 30, 1986 in Ontario, Canada, John Paul Piques was brought up in the city of Toronto. As a young child, he mainly poured his free time into sports- in particular, he was especially fond of soccer. After many years of perfecting his skills on the field, he went professional in 2004, at the age of eighteen- not long after his high school graduation.
That year, he made his professional debut playing for S.C. Braga and Sporting Clubs de Portugal, two well known European teams. From there, Piques eventually joined the Montreal Impact in Canada, during which he was on the same team as his close friend and roommate, Cristiano Ronaldo. In 2007, the Toronto native participated in the Canadian Soccer League, where he ultimately helped Trois-Rivieres Attak to win the Open Canada Cup.
Deciding to switch career paths in his twenties, Piques later went to Humber College in Toronto, where he majored in sales and marketing. After obtaining his bachelor’s degree, he landed a job at an insurance company, for which he worked for a few years. A successful salesman, he reportedly earned six figures during his time as an agent. Ultimately, it was during this time that he began creating videos in his spare time.
In the spring of 2014, the insurance salesman joined the new social media sensation at the time- Vine. He later uploaded his first six second video, That Moment When Your Fav Part of the Song Comes On on April 10, 2014. Funny and relatable, it quickly racked up the views over the next few days. Before long, his work had gone viral, leading his follower count to go up by the thousands.
Over a period of three years, Piques had managed to earn over 3.1 million followers on Vine. After being shut down in early 2017, the social media star turned his attention to Instagram, to which he began uploading short video clips. To date, he has over 1.8 million fans on the photo/video-sharing app. A social media influencer with his own devoted fanbase, his content easily gains upwards of 2 million+ views.
In December 2016, he launched his current Youtube channel, Piques. Within a few months, he has reached over 11K subscribers and more than 538K video views. Currently, his number one video, When Your Girlfriend Takes Private Dance Classes has been viewed more than 120K times.
Assuming that he’s part of the Google partnership program (because who wouldn’t want to monetize their videos?), he would earn upwards of $5/1,000 views from his channel. A few simple calculations tell us that Piques would have made at least a few hundred dollars, from his videos. His top upload alone, would have earned over a hundred bucks from ad revenue.
Besides Vine, Instagram and Youtube, the Canadian celeb also has quite the presence on Facebook, where he currently sits at 8.5 million likes.
Aside from his work with social media, Piques has also been involved with a couple of television series. In 2015, he helped to direct the animated cartoon, White Ninja, which included Brian Drummond, Paul Scheer, and David Kaye in the voice cast. More recently, it has been announced that he will be making a cameo as a basketball player in the TV mini-series, Pretty Vacant.
Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that he will be making his big screen debut in the comedy film, Airplane Mode (2017) alongside many other internet celebs including Jake Paul, Mikaela Hoover, Chloes Bridges, and Local Paul.
Currently, it is estimated that Jon Paul Piques has a net worth of $300,000. While it’s entirely possible that a portion stems from his salaried job as an insurance agent back in the day, it’s more likely that his current wealth came from his work as a content creator on Vine, Youtube, and Instagram.
