Allie Madison started Fiverr when she was 18 and made $100,000 by the time she was 20. She says that she likes Fiverr a lot because the startup costs are very low and you only need a computer and internet to start.
Madison recounts how she first discovered Fiverr:
“Right before graduating high school, I was working this horrible lifeguarding job, making minimum wage just sitting bored out of my mind. I’ve always loved the internet and finding ways to make money online. I came across Fiverr from an article. I added it to my bookmarks, not to work on there, but just to check it out. It’s really cool that you can buy a bunch of things for $5. I thought I would buy something. This was in 2012, and at the time Fiverr was all these crazy gigs.
My whole life I’ve never enjoyed following rules and working for other people. I guess that might come from my dad. He has his own business going on, and he hasn’t worked for a boss. I thought it was really cool that he doesn’t have anyone to answer to. That’s probably where I got the bug. I like having control, and I don’t want to have a boss that controls my life. I like having plenty of free time. I also think life is too short to do something you hate. I found a job that I absolutely love.”
