One of the top-earning female Twitchers to grace the platform, Imane Anys, aka Pokimane, began her career in college, streaming games of League of Legends and Fortnite in between chemical engineering classes. An increase in her intense school load led Poki to drop out to devote time to her growing channel and Twitch content business. 

In an interview with Forbes, the creator credits her early success to a good work ethic and “willingness to try new things, especially new games or trends that pop up. Being an online content creator is a lot like having your own company. Therefore being able to adapt and evolve is an integral part of keeping your business running.”

Why we’re a Stan: Pokimane, whether she realizes it or not, is a content entrepreneur with this Twitch content business. Her vision to adapt and evolve is essential for any successful business.
