Millennials are notoriously broke AF. A shockingly high percentage of us is paying back student loans, working one or more jobs, and helping support family members and/or a partner - all this while paying a landlord rent, most likely. Even my most frugal friends find themselves in tough spots financially, hence the rise of the side hustle. Rent out a spare room on Airbnb! Sell handmade crafts on Etsy! Auction off your Beanie Babies on eBay! Anything to scrimp and save.
So it's not surprising that when a twenty-two year-old entrepreneur did Refinery29's Money Diaries feature, people had strong opinions about it. Though her line of work is never clearly defined - she mentions having been a 'healthy living influencer of sorts since high school' and sells...something on Instagram - she somehow makes about $604,800 per year. That's $54,400 per month.
