However, her entrepreneurial journey changed when she had her baby at 21, leading her to work at a BPO company for three years before she found her way back to her original path.

She also founded a community of social media managers and growth hackers based in the Philippines that now has more than 7,000 people in its exclusive Facebook group.
Nix, just like Melissa, also started making money at the young age of 16. At 18, he was already providing content and SEO services to international clients. Now at 26, he has amassed quite a wealth of experience where digital marketing is concerned. He used his background to establish Sprout and promote his e-commerce websites.
