"I did not expect that this would be able to pay my bills."
[A (very) small slice of Leandra’s closet]When did you start Manrepeller.com and did you know when you started it that it would become what is now your full time business?
“Absolutely not. I was very lucky in that it gained traction so quickly, but I effectively only took all of the opportunities that came to me in the first six months because I thought that they would help me get a job out of college, I did not expect that this would be able to pay my bills.”
What year did you start Manrepeller?
When did you know you wanted to do it full time?
“When I graduated college and realized that I had been monetizing it was sort of a no brainer because I loved doing it so much, and so to be able to turn it into a business was like a profound dream, I still can’t believe it.”
