Honestly, over the past 6 months is when I really put my main focus on IG. I've been running bots and growing accounts for myself and some of my buddies for pure narcissistic reasons since 2012.
I've been hustling for years though...when I was a sophomore in high school I borrowed $1800 from my uncle, skipped school and stood in line at Best Buy for 3 days just to get 3 PS3's to sell on eBay and made $1500.
When I was 19 I bought myself a Lexus from money I made selling penis pumps fro alibaba lol! I even had my mom helping me package them and fullfull orders when I was deployed to Afghanistan, I still managed to run my business from a 3rd world country.
I've made most of my money doing Amazon FBA, which I still do, but I've grown tired of the physical and time consuming work of packaging/labeling/finding products for it. I haven't bought products in months but still have a ton of inventory selling that brings in a few hundred dollars a month.
I don't do cpa so I can't speak on that but I've grown pretty profficient at building accounts to large numbers within a matter of weeks. MP has helped immensely of course and has pretty much made it simple as pie after these last couple of updates. I don't like growing the accounts too big because I've found it's easier to sell $75-150 accounts to the masses rather then selling $500-1000 to a select few.
I'll do my best to contribute more here, I usually spend most of my time on BHW because I've been there so long.
