๐Ÿ“– How it started โ€” Story

In 2019 my friends and I were looking for a project to work on just for fun during the summer. I went on YouTube and I was watching videos of different financial Youtubers like usual. One of them is called โ€œBiahezaโ€. His video called โ€œHow People are Making Millions off Tik Tokโ€ caught my attention. Why? because these channels generate millions of views so you would say they generate a lot of revenue, but is that really true?
