I created a business from Reddit post when I was on the brink of homelessness a year ago, and it's still going strong! Ask me Anything
In May 2019 I was a university student who lost my job without notice because the family I worked for unexpectedly left the country. Two months later I was still unemployed and only had $0.33 in my bank account, with my rent overdue and my electricity 24hrs from being turned off. In desperation, I posted to r/slavelabour offering to review dating profiles on dating apps, and within a few hours my inbox had exploded with responses. Today, it's the second highest upvoted post in slavelabour's history.
A year and a half later, my business is still going strong. It's one of the craziest experiences of my life. I never imagined that this is the way my life would go, but it's been a blast. I earned my master's degree in December, but I plan to continue with Advice by Chloe until I finish my PhD. Hands down, best job I ever had, and it started with a random post to Reddit when I was in a state of desperation. I help people improve their dating profiles and response rates on dating apps.
I'm definitely not claiming to be an expert of creating a business. I've made a million mistakes along the way, but I've learned a lot. It's my day off and I'm playing some OSRS, Ask Me Anything!
