You are generous. :D

See a penny, pick it up and then all day you have a penny.

I think the lady is too young to know what life is about yet. Give her another ten to twenty years and she will sober up! Nice to be young and stupid! Haha!

I agree even a penny is too generous.

She looks like a teen honestly. Maybe a young adult or is at least 18. Seems like anyone who has this delusional mindset tend to be teens or young adults. They think anyone can just get famous or think it's easy money to make. They see urban explorer on youtube and they seem rich because they travel to take a video of an abandoned place and think that anyone can just make a living off of it.

I think people missed the point of the post.

She's playing to her own stereotype. Her prior followers on Tik tok and instragram were about 2500. Probably enough to keep her casually employed but nothing to write home about.

She made the video knowing she sounded horribly vain and self-absorbed but would create attention for herself

The tik tok video went viral attracting > 10 million views

She will likely milk that attention from new "simps" who will make her channel financially lucrative

So on the one hand she's made clever use of social media (good marketing strategy). On the other hand she is only reinforcing how shallow this current generation is to be spending 7-8hrs a day staring at the phones/devices scrolling through social media feed for self-stimulation

The men who pay this girl money so they can have a "virtual relationship" on twitch or some other streaming service know what they are doing, She is a modern day content creator. It's a job.

Is that ten million TikTok likes actually turning into meaningful $$?

If so is she living a minimalist / spartan life and putting away most of her income in a mutual fund or actively managing investments on Forex or Binance?

She could do it if she wanted to, just not convinced - stated that way - that she's actually serious about being set up well enough to retire by 30. Maybe she is, just that if she is I don't get any of that from the OP, rather she just sounds like the apotheosis of trendiness and 'this weeks flavor', showing the Kanye and Belle Delphine knack for turning outrage into cash, which would mean her borrowed fifteen minutes of fame are probably running out - unless she has some profound talents that would... well... have already vaulted her into a position where being a TikTok influencer probably wouldn't be what she's known for.

Yes, that's why I said it's shameless self-promotion to put out the statement about being pretty.
Who goes around telling people they think they're beautiful?
It was clever marketing.
Even though she's no stunner, people might keep watching to see what idiocy she spouts next.

And that's the point. She's not a runway model but then neither was Kim K. It's about maximising your limited assets (pardon the pun) using other strategies. Kim K leaked pictures. This girl particular girl leaked her inner thoughts.

Exactly. Stuff like this is never a viable long term plan. Once everything starts to go south and all she has on her CV is "simp magnet" then she'll be in trouble.

Myself personally? I have zero tolerance for people like her. After a lifetime of being belittled and infantalised, I have a tendancy to pester arrogant and self-absorbed people when their game is finally up.

I'm sure I'm far from alone in having the same attitude.

Lots of attractive people have left ordinary jobs for a career as an influencer. But, most of the ones that I follow say it's very hard work coming up with new content to keep followers engaged. So, if she's thinking that her looks will automatically be her ticket to the free and easy lifestyle, she's just lazy. By that logic someone could say they're too ugly to work. I know some really unconventional looking individuals who end up being the best, most easy people to like simply by their willingness to help. Looking pretty is just a tool, but it won't get you anywhere without a willingness to work.

I agree.
We can't assume she's stupid or has no skills just because of this choice.
For all we know she's very well-educated but gave up looking for entry-level jobs.
I hope she has a brain to fall back on.
