Franta, 22, tells PEOPLE he admires Steve Jobs's unmatched success as an innovation trailblazer and creative genius. "He made the impossible possible, in a way," he says.
And it's an entrepreneurial spirit he clearly shares.
In addition to racking up almost 5 million subscribers on YouTube – thanks to a variety of videos that range from candy taste tests to comedy skits to day-in-the-life vlogs – Franta has already released a best-selling memoir, started his own line of locally roasted coffee (Common Culture Coffee) and launched his own record label. Next up: He's heading to VidCon this week.
Oh, yeah, and did we mention that he's only 22 years old?
"I do a spectrum of things," Franta said with a laugh.
