He and his real-life friend were trying to come up with funny usernames. He wound up choosing ‘WackyJacky’, while his friend chose ‘SkinnyPete’. However, the name was already taken, so he tacked on ‘101’ just to make it work.
As a teenager, WackyJacky101played a great deal of WoW. He was later was introduced to PUBG by his friends that he played Battlefield 1 with. After he tried it, it immediately became his main game.
In January 2018, he had obtained enough subscribers to quit his well-paying job at a pharmaceutical company to pursue a fulltime streaming career. His main motivation for doing so was his desire to spend more time with his family. He also occasionally works as a caster at PUBG tournaments.
WackyJacky101 is estimated to have over 3,200 subscribers. This should provide him with a monthly minimal income of $8,000 USD, excluding additional income from sponsors, advertising, casting, Twitch cheer bit contributions and tips.

Find a very unique way to [create content]. Don't do what others are doing, because then it will probably be impossible to grow. OR Have a unique personality that will make people want to watch your content because of YOU and not the gameplay. The competition is insane - and you honestly need to get lucky I think (I definitely got lucky and I am thankful) Smaller content creators that copy larger content creators are missing the point.
