      Pros

      work from home and make creative content

      Cons

      very difficult to grow your channel unless you do alot of social media other than twitch, instagram, twitter, youtube, tiktok, facebook, maybe even pintrest, and if you want to grow your channel this is what you must do, your full time job is not only coming up with fun and creative content, but also networking it and spreading it on all of these websites, if you dont, your channel will never grow your salary depends on how successful you are at spreading yourself like a virus
