Seriously. This is one of the most amazing gigs in the world… unknown to most, aside from a small group of “industry veterans.”

Before I reveal everything there is to know about this little-known job, let’s have a look at what I found on Google when I searched highest paying jobs in the world.

This is the first search result Google displays:

Taken straight from the article, below are the 25 “best-paying” jobs in America in 2019, according to U.S. News & World Report:

  1. Anesthesiologist — $265,990/yr
  2. Surgeon — $251,890/yr
  3. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon — $242,740/yr
  4. Obstetrician and Gynecologist — $235,240/yr

  23. Actuary — $114,850/yr
  24. Political Scientist — $112,030/yr
  25. Medical and Health Services Manager — $111,680/yr

Now, while I don’t agree with this list entirely (there are a few jobs missing that come to mind), it still gives you a good idea of some of the highest-paying jobs out there.

Another important point worth noting is, almost every single one of the 25 jobs from that list require some kind of college degree, with the exception of a few.

Now, I told you all of that, to tell you this…

You’ve Been Lied To Your Entire Life

It’s sad but true.

Think about your childhood. Every adult role model in your life, at one time or another, told you this…

“You have to go to school, study hard, get good grades, find a safe secure job, save your money, and live below your means.”

They may not have known it at the time but they were lying to you.

You don’t need to study to get good grades. Heck, I rarely studied and had a 3.5 GPA (or better) all through high school. (My wife says I’m an exception… maybe so but either way I prove that theory wrong.)

You don’t need to go to school to get a job. Don’t believe me? Keep reading.

And, you definitely don’t need to live below your means to be safe and secure.

The truth is, this is what they were told when they were kids. Times change, though. The economy changes. Jobs change. Industries as a whole change.

The same advice that was helpful fifty years ago does not apply today. How could it? The same jobs that were available fifty years ago are not available today.

Those old jobs slowly disappear as new industries emerge making way for new jobs. Amazing jobs like the one I’m about to share with you.

Speaking of that…

Have you ever heard of a paperboy? You know, the kid that rode around the neighborhood on his bike, tossing newspapers in everyone’s driveway.

Are there still paperboys out there today? I don’t know for sure, maybe. But they’re few and far between. Each and every year readership of real, hold-in-your-hand newspapers declines.

Their demise is inevitable. They’ve been dying a slow, miserable death for close to a decade now making way for this amazing job opportunity.

The Virtual Paperboy: The Highest Paying Job in the World You Never Knew Existed

You’re probably thinking, is this guy out of his ever-loving mind?! A virtual paperboy… what the heck is that?!


The fact that you don’t know what that is proves my point. You don’t know what you don’t know, right? Which, I assume, is the reason you’re still reading.

The job of a virtual paperboy (or papergirl) is simple and similar to the job of real paperboys…

To deliver news to those who are interested. That’s it in its simplest form.

If people aren’t subscribing to newspapers anymore, where are they getting their news from?

The interwebs, right? They’re getting updates on their phones and tablets. They’re reading online news sites.

But there’s something else they’re doing that’s spawned the role of the virtual paperboy.

They’re subscribing to very specific websites that allow them to receive regular email updates related only to the topics they’re interested in reading about.

And, it’s the role of the virtual paperboy to act as an intermediary ensuring that those people (we’ll call them subscribers) receive their email updates as promised on a regular basis.

Seems easy enough, right? That’s because it is. That’s also why you don’t need a college degree (or even a high school diploma) to do this. If you can send an email, you’re qualified.

Great, so how much do virtual paperboys make?

Here’s where it gets a little hairy. The amount of money you can make doing this really depends on the number of subscribers you’re emailing.

The “industry norm” is $1 per month, per subscriber. That’s the average. I maintain a number of different lists of subscribers.

One list earns me $0.25 per subscriber, per month… another list earns me $2.75 per subscriber, per month… and a different list earns me $4.25 per subscriber, per month.

It’s an advertising-based industry. Inside the news emails you send are ads paid for by advertisers. The amount of money you earn per subscriber depends on the type of news being emailed to your subscribers.

For example, if the news being sent could identify your subscribers as business owners, advertisers would likely pay more money to have their ads shown to them, as opposed to people who are interested in cat videos.

The amount you earn is directly associated with the amount advertisers are willing to pay to have their ads displayed.

Like I said above, the average is $1 per subscriber, per month. Meaning, if you had a list of 10,000 subscribers that you were in charge of, your annual income would be $120,000 per year. Not too shabby, right?

What if you take on another list of 5,000 subscribers that earn you $3 per subscriber, per month? That’s an extra $180,000 per year!

And no, you don’t have to actually send 5,000 or 10,000 emails per month manually, one at a time. There are some really nifty, super simple online tools that will do it all for you.

This is NOT Some “Pie in the Sky” Non-Sense

People “in the know” have been doing this for years. I’ve been doing it full-time since 2010. My dad has been doing it full-time since 1999.

Yes, my dad, who was 43-years-old when he got started, had never sent an email in his life. He now maintains a list of over 150,000 subscribers.

A peek inside my dad’s subscriber account

I’ll let you do the math on what that one account is worth.

What about me?

I’ve made as much as $13,916.00 in ONE DAY doing this. Is that normal? No. It’s different for everyone.

Proof of my $13,916.00 day

I’m not showing you this to brag. Not at all. In fact, it makes me really uncomfortable sharing these personal numbers. I just want to show you the potential this gig has for you.

Go back up to that Top 25 list above real quick and figure out what those top-earners are making per day. It’s nowhere near the average a virtual paperboy makes.

That’s why I consider this the highest paying job in the world. Now, if you wanna get all technical and say athletes and celebrities make more… fine, go ahead.

If you feel good about your chances of going pro or making it big in Hollywood, by all means, go for it! Call me “Mr. Realistic” if you want but I’m gonna stay the course here.

The best part about the Virtual Paperboy gig is, if you can send an email, you’re qualified!
