1M followers or $1M dollar business.

If you had a choice between owning a $1M dollar business free and clear that paid you $200K a yr after expenses or having 1M legit followers on any social media platform of your choice, which would you pick?

Yall don't realize how much money you can make off 1M followers or how easy it could make your life in regards to business. 

 

You could create infinite businesses from a following. Can make your fundraising way easier.

As the saying goes "follow the money."

 

Also why would I want a woke angry mob trying to cancel me after every post?

You can do a lot with 1m followers, probably scale that into a multi-million dollar business and it will be less of a headache as well. Somebody like Graham Stephen on YouTube, who blew up but over the last 1.5 year but was still making a decent living off of YouTube. Spencer Cornelia who is much smaller also does well with around a million views a month and 120k subs. I'd probably take the followers over the business.
