I don't have any idea. That was a couple of years ago and I didn't seem to mention it in this thread.

It looks like it started accruing interest immediately.

I finally got in and it says that I owe $500 in interest. It looks like I returned my loan of $12,900.00 on 05/18/2021, with $12,426.85 going to principal, and $473.15 going to interest, leaving a balance of $473.15. I have accrued $25.86 on that and owe a grand total of $499.01.

So, take advice from poor people, not millionaires?
Depends on how that millionaire made their money and whether or not they know anything about the topic they are giving advice on.

In the case of Meet Kevin - he makes his money selling the dream that anyone can become rich through real estate investing. According to a CNBC article on him he makes 96% of his income from YouTube and his YouTube money is funding his real estate business. He also tried to start a construction company doing home renovations and lost $1 million in 18 months before quitting and focusing back to what he knows - YouTube.

He would be one of the first people I would take advice from on how to make money on YouTube.

I wouldn't take advice on work / life balance from him. He works 12 hours a day 5 am to 5 pm.

The thing about being an influenza is you can lose, post videos about it, and win in the end.
