Previously, some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry had made similar investments in Therabody. This includes the likes of Rihanna, Shawn Mendes, Justin Timberlake, and more.

Karl Jacobs came in to congratulate Pokimane and he might just get his own Theragun with his name engraved on it.

Karl wasn’t the only one who was proud of Pokimane’s achievement. Her close friend Valkyrae also tweeted her response.

Talking about Valkyrae, she is now the new co-owner of 100 Thieves alongside Courage. This was a massive step-up for the streamer who once joined the Esports organization as their first female content creator.

The journey so far

Pokimane has entered a list of elites with her investment. However, no figures were disclosed, so it is rather unclear how much of her money the streamer has invested.

Female streamers have been steadily rising in popularity and stardom over the years. It is exceptionally good to see Pokimane and Valkyrae rising in the scene.

Pokimane is the second most popular female streamer of the year. She already has over 7 million followers on Twitch and is only behind Valkyrae by a small number.

In her recent stream, Pokimane talked about her journey and how she became a successful streamer in what is one of the hardest fields.

The streamer has been subjected to negativity about her career. While many believed she’d fail, Pokimane trusted in herself. She states that if one tries hard, they’d be successful one fine day.

As long as you persevere and you keep trying, someday you will find what works for you and you will be successful in that,” Pokimane said.
