How A Viral Video Allowed This TikTok Star To Stop Her Job At McDonald’s
Maddison Peel is a teenage girl from Kentucky who benefited from the boost TikTok has given the masses. While the 22-year-old was once working for the minimum wage (earned $ 12 an hour) at a McDonald’s in Kentucky, Insider reported that a video she once posted to her @ MaddisonsKitchen account caught enough attention to get her helping make the money she needed leaving. The video showed how she simply roasted a chicken to the background music of Cardi B’s song “Up”. Within a week she announced her two-week notice period and told Insider: “I have seen a bright future with TikTok and had already achieved many brands via this video.”
She is now being asked for work by brands like Heinz and Weber Grills and stores like Walmart and Kroger to create and post videos of food recipes that make in the range of $ 5,000-10,000 a month, the article said. With 365,000 followers and 11.8 million likes at the time of publication, Peels Star continues to grow and offer her more and more opportunities that she sees as a “bright future” with the app as her main source of income. If only we could all be so lucky!
