The pages of MrBeast's book may be few, but the ideas and inspirations they hold are limitless, encouraging us to think big and dream even bigger.

YouTuber MrBeast is known for his creative and generous acts of kindness. He has given away tens of thousands of dollars to strangers, paid off people's mortgages and medical bills, and even donated $10,000 to a student's college fund.

Who Is MrBeast?

Born in 1998, Jimmy Donaldson ‘MrBeast' is a popular YouTuber who is known for his creative and often outrageous videos. He has a large following (103,000,000+ on Youtube) of young viewers who enjoy his content.

Born in North Carolina, MrBeast started his YouTube channel in 2012 when he was just a teenager (check his first video). He quickly gained popularity for his humorous videos and creative pranks. The real turning point was when he started creating giveaway videos, where he literally gave first (several) dollars to homeless or random people. This happened in 2017, MrBeast began to focus more on philanthropy. He has given away millions of dollars to random people in his later videos. His generosity has earned him even more fans and respect from the online community.

At just 25 years old, Jimmy Donaldson, better known by his online persona MrBeast has shown himself to be a talented content creator, amassing over 100 million YouTube subscribers. He clearly understands how to capture viewer interest and translate it into profits, with estimated earnings of $82 million last year (2023) from his various branded merchandise and sponsorships.

He does not hoard these financial spoils for himself. Jimmy is constantly dreaming up innovative ways to give back, whether through massive giveaways to fans or creative philanthropy like his #TeamSeas initiative to fund ocean cleanup. He thinks big about solving problems, much like I try to do with my foundation’s work.

While our content could not be more different, I see a kindred spirit in Jimmy. He is an ambitious visionary using his business and creative talents to make the world a little bit better. I will be excited to see what societal impacts he helps generate as his career continues to take off in the years ahead. The possibilities seem limitless for this high-energy young disruptor.

Message to MrBeast: Our (Video) Idea

Now, it would be high time to help also on literature @MrBeast or at least create an engaging video.

There is about 1.9 million books self-published yearly (and about 300k published by traditional publishers as of 2023). The majority of self-published titles sell less than 100 copies lifetime.

  1. Publish a ‘MrBeast Book‘ (on your website or/and Amazon), as a reader I would gladly read about
    • Your most touching moments
    • Life lessons you would share with others
    • Your most dangerous situation what you got into
  2. Put the income you generate with the book into a ‘MrBeast Lit Fund
  3. Every year let random US or worldwide authors (who published at least one book in that year) apply to the fund
  4. Share your book's revenue with them in order cover certain expenses of their book publishing process, and these books will receive some extra hype thanks to your brand

Why We Think This Is a Good Idea?

  • Books still hold far the best fictional story ideas
  • It's more or less fair since everybody could apply
  • There should be a democratic and unbiased review process and certain criteria in terms of uniqueness and length that filters low quality books, but this would guarantee that writers who put real effort into their works would be honored
  • This campaign would publicize reading (and also writing) among youngsters

What Is The Problem With Today's Book Publishing Industry?

01 Traditional publishing houses don't pick books based on quality and story but based on writer

If you are a debut author, the chance of being published by traditional houses is marginal.

There is a common misconception that traditional publishing houses only publish books that are of high quality and have a great story. Traditional publishing houses make their decisions on which book will sell on the market rather than the content itself. This completely makes sense in the world of business, follower numbers, history, unique presence behind the author are all important.

This can be seen as an unfair advantage to some writers who may not have the same connections or resources as others. It can also be difficult for new or unknown writers to get their foot in the door of traditional publishing houses.

At the end of the day what will happens with the gems💎? Written by unknown introvert authors, who simply never will have the chance to make their life work public for everyone.

02 Famous authors couldn't even produce 2-3 books per year

If you are a popular author the expectation is to write minimum one but more likely two to more books per year.

How on earth could you write truly creative stories in a length of 300 pages every half year? That definitely kills creativity. The pressure to produce new content on a regular basis can be stifling, and it's easy to fall into a rut of recycling old ideas.

As Jodi Picoult said

Everyone has a story; everyone hides his past as a means of self-preservation.

We need fresh voices! And occasionally readers are good to find some of them.

03 Habits changed, less people are reading

Is this a problem? Well in a sense no, technology constantly evolves as does entertainment.

I don't afraid of loosing readers but loosing great stories.

We can produce short movies, comics, audiobooks from books, but there should be always a writer, a unique story at the end. The way we ‘consume' story will always change no matter.

So in itself, that less people are purchasing books on Amazon isn't a big problem. But people will have much harder time to find those fresh stories, that gives everybody something.
