A millionaire who deliberately made himself broke and homeless in a bizarre social experiment designed to rack up YouTube hits has suddenly quit his challenge after concerns over his health. 

Mike Black had planned to essentially start over from nothing, while proving to himself that he would be able to make $1 million in the space of just 12 months.

Black had been an entrepreneur his entire life, but in July 2020 decided to walk away from everything giving up his car, house and all of his money. 

'I knew a lot of people who lost everything during the pandemic and they got really depressed. I even had a friend that lost a $10 million business overnight', Black explained in a "YouTube video.

Black wanted to help his friends rebuild their lives and prove that luck or money was not necessary to become a millionaire - just hard work.

But Black ended his challenge after it took a toll on his health. 

'I have officially decided to end the project early. Now as much as it hurts me to do this, especially with just two months left, I feel like it's the right thing to do,' he announced on YouTube.

'I've been dealing with a lot of things personally, and recently something's happened that has really pushed me over the edge. 

'My personal health has declined to the point where I really need to start taking care of it. Throughout the entire project, we haven't shared it with you, but I've been in and out of the doctor's office.'

Black explained how he also suffered from two autoimmune diseases which caused 'chronic fatigue' and another that attacked his joints.

'A lot of what's come to light for me is what truly matters, health and gratitude,' he said.
