    They’re making a TON of cash with this right now… and… they’re literally only investing an hour or two per day into it. The rest of the time, they’re doing more important stuff — like having fun with their friends and family… traveling… and playing video games. So look, if it sounds like I’m EXCITED about this new business model, that’s because I am. I really think this could change your life, so please listen to what this renegade Large Streaming Companies scientist have to say.
