Guy who joined OnlyFans 'for a laugh' quits apprenticeship after earning £49k
| Last updated
A bloke who joined OnlyFans as a ‘joke’ managed to make almost £50,000 and has since quit his apprenticeship to dedicate himself to the platform full-time.
Oli Morris, 20, was working 32-hours a week as a carpentry apprentice on £4.50 an hour in May 2021 when he and a pal decided to join OnlyFans as a laugh.
But he soon found that his topless photos were a hit and raked in £3,100 in his first month.
After realising how much cash he could make, Oli decided to sack off college and his apprenticeship and now is a full time OnlyFans content creator.
Oli, from Hereford, said: “Setting up an OnlyFans was something me and my mate did as a joke at the start.
"We thought it would be a laugh but turned out better than we thought.
"When we both started to make money on our websites, we thought we would take it seriously and see where we got.
“I take my OnlyFans pictures wherever I can really but it is usually in my bedroom or hotel rooms.
“As well as the topless photos, I have also started making content with Only Fans girls and pay-per-view custom videos too.
“This does make it hard to have a girlfriend as unless they want to make content with me, most girls are not into this so at the moment I am single but okay with that.
“I am money-driven and want to get lots of money behind me to buy a nice house and an Audi S3, and then I might think about stopping one day and having a girlfriend.
“I don’t regret my decision to drop out of my apprenticeship as I get to travel and party whenever I want, and I am making so much more than the £4.50 an hour I was on.
“In my apprenticeship I would have to work five days a week and have barely any holidays and I didn’t want to do this.
“I don’t regret it now but maybe I will when I’m older.”
Oli made the decision to quit his apprenticeship seven months after launching his OnlyFans page and says his mum Emma Simcock, 40, supports his choice.
However, his dad is yet to discover how his son makes his money. I wonder if he's reading this?
Oli added: “At the end of the day, everything I do is legal and I think OnlyFans gives young people an amazing opportunity to make lots of money so they can travel and see the world.
“When I first started my OnlyFans I was very sceptical about what other people thought, but now I don’t care.
“I’m making a lot of money and travelling everywhere I want to so it’s a win-win situation.”
