I don't mean to be nosy, I'm just a curious person! But does Mike Phillips have a job outside of paintball? Or is he paid to do paintball related things? AGAIN I'm just curious.

he runs the marker bids website which rakes in the dough.

i believe he is also going to school to become an accountant. but don't take my word for it.

Everything he does he pays for from him working. He is very dedicated to providing the paintball community with the best.

I know he's a dedicated player I have a lot of respect for him. I was just wondering if he does anything outside of paintball.

Paintball is his hobby. Not job. He gets paid squat, since he is the boss of tech pb. Any money he makes via marker bids goes into helping tech pb.

He has a personal life. A wife, 2 girls, a job. But beyond that, well we don't need to know

i don't think so.
i'm just saying that if i had a family and a youtube channel/website, most of that money would be going into my familys savings account. i'd rather have a bunch of money for a rainy day than a super modern website or a youtube channel that puts out two videos a week. because health care is damn expensive in the states, and if my little girls got sick i would want to be able to give them the best care i could possibly afford opposed to having a bunch of paintball videos.

You guys don't know the half of it! I saw Mike dancing at the Kitty Kat Club down in Miami. He had a 1/2 dozen ones and at least 1 c-note stuff in his g-string.

My Bad. In a way, it is helping TechPB. Before Markerbids, Mike pretty much paid out of pocket to get the stuff that he reviews. So it's simply paying mike back for the work he's done previously.

No, right now I don't have a job outside of paintball. I grew up flat broke so it doesn't take much money for me to be happy.

Right now I run the Youtube channel, help Willie with the TechPB website, and of course run Markerbids. Markerbids has brought in a good income for me, so until that dries up, I'll stay with that.

I haven't passed my CPA exam, right now it's on hold and I'll ride the Markerbids wave as long as it lasts. So far so good.

If I had the choice between making $40,000 a year with paintball, or $60,000 a year rotting in a cubicle as an accountant, I'll take paintball

Accounting is my Plan B, it's my fallback. If it all falls apart, everyone starts hating me, I stop playing paintball, Markerbids dries up and Willie finally gets sick of me, I take 6 months, finish up the CPA exam and go make 6 figures as a CPA.

I also do a little bit of day trading, and I have some other outside investments that sometimes do well, sometimes they don't (shares in small businesses, Fores trading, etc) so every little bit helps.

I've learned it's not what you're doing now that's important, it's what you got lined up when and if it all falls apart.... that for me is accounting :-)

Trust me, it's one HELL of a fallback. Out of everyone I knew that graduated int he early 2000's with me, the ones that hung in for accounting are the ones driving the 6-figure cars right now....

Check out the video where he goes out on his sexy bike, that beautiful neighborhood in Florida will give you an idea about his income. Or is that just how good Florida looks?

I despise the humidity. As soon as I'm done with college, I'm moving to another state :P

Using a gun that's been hardly maintained and tossed from person to person more than a village whore is hardly a fair way to compare the marker.

If accounting doesn't work there are always lonely housewives, widows and professionals who seek discretion Mike =)

It can be nice, but mainly in the winter. Otherwise the humidity is just awful. I've been all over the country, and I can honestly say Colorado and the surrounding Rocky mountain states are the most beautifull in my mind.

utah is pretty nice, it gets a little hot but nowhere near as humid as florida. the mountains in the spring are very beautiful

It's time you all knew. Mike Phillips is really just a 6'3" inflatable doll Willie keeps in his hall closet. If you ever see the vids where they are both together look very closely and you will see Willie's lips moving when Mike is speaking.
