She's incredible but this honestly baffles me. I'm a fiverr pro seller. Before I was a pro seller, I'd been on the platform working constantly for 4 years and reached the best seller level. To this day I make around $3000 per month on there, which is amazing but these story puzzle me. I never seem to be able to break through that. I've played around with charging more but my sales just drop off the planet.

agree. Think about it, that figure means she makes over $1035 each day all year around (assumes no weekend, no holiday, no xmas, no nothing break). Let us assume she works 10 hours a day (which, let us be honest is hard, ie to work 10 billable hours), that means she 'charges' about $103 an hour. Unless she is writing for the likes of Google and Neflix or maybe writing in C# or Java or Python, it is really really hard to make that kind of money writing in English!

PLEASE INVEST… everything you said about the retirement section of this video scared the heck out of me. If you’re not comfortable about investing then you have the wrong advisor. Find an advisor who will teach you everything about it, rather than just tell you what to do. The money you’re making couple soon create enough money to live off of, hence the quote “let your money make money”

CNBC has a patina of respectability so it's shameful how they keep producing these dishonest videos. There is simply no way that this woman is earning the amount she claims to be earning on Fiverr or as a copywriter—period. The only thing she's selling is an image of wealth in the same way that the Amway people talk about their "amazing lives" — pure snake oil for the gullible. If you do the most basic search of her on Fiverr and see what she charges to write, it’s incredibly low by any copywriting standard. No writer worth their salt would charge what she charges if they were so "in demand." And beyond that, she'd have to be a robot to make the money she's claiming to make. The people commenting here who say "she must be a great proofreader" and "she's disciplined." Yea, I got some sand to sell you in the Sahara.

To those claiming "you can't make that much as a writer" - senior tech writers at large companies (such as Facebook, Amazon, or Microsoft) get paid salaries + bonuses + stock options that are consummate with their programming and/or hardware-based co-workers. If you're thinking "eh, senior developers make a lot, but not THAT much," then multiply the top salary you think one could earn by 1.3, because she's essentially a solo independent contractor who is paying for her own benefits.

@Gabriel Teixeira I don't consider 20K a good salary in Western countries. Anyway, my point is it's not enough to just create a freelancer account on Fiverr and expect 200K in your account like magic. You must work and deliver, and not everyone has the same capacity at delivering quality work.

@Anouk C Yes, it is. More than 90% of the Americans make more than $20k a year, which is the world's average. It is really a matter of option to be poor in the US, except those who are ill, but even there, most have much better opportunities in the US than they woukd have out of it.

No disrespect, this young woman "got her game on" and nothing but props to her for it. But I am certain that not just the pandemic boosted her earnings potential. Throw in a healthy slice of the barely functional education system in the US as a major reason for a significant increase in the demand for her services. People may be creative but for a large percentage of that group - command of syntax, vocabulary and organized thoughts that translate into publish worthy copy is lacking. I imagine her income potential could crest 7 figs per annum in 1-2 years here.
