“Being a social media influencer is not a real job”.

You’ve probably heard some version of the above statement in the past decade, ever since social media marketing has emerged as a legitimate source of revenue.

The only problem with this statement is that unless lexicographers recently changed the meaning of the word job, being a social media influencer is a real job, because they get paid. 

Here’s a video we’ve done about “real jobs” (also, please subscribe to our YouTube channel so that…our boss can buy a Toyota?):

If you’re still unconvinced, maybe Naomi Neo’s new car might change your mind.

24-YO S’porean Influencer Bought a Lamborghini With Her Online Earnings

Naomi Neo, a Singaporean blogger and social media influencer, managed to buy her dream car with her online earnings.

The influencer shared a video on her YouTube channel where she documents the events leading up to the purchase of her second car, the Lamborghini Huracan.

The video starts out with Neo surprising her 2-year-old son Ky with the Huracan, and lets him sit in the front sit for a bit.

Neo then heads to the workshop with her husband and family where her new car has been sitting for a few days getting “dolled up”.

And once they get inside, they see the shy Huracan hiding under a black cover, which only heightens the suspense.

Neo pulls off the black cover to reveal a gleaming purple and black Huracan, which is so beautiful that Neo declares she’s “remarrying”.

When Neo’s husband asks her if she loves the car or him more, Neo jokingly replies “the car lah”.

Then Neo takes her pricey new purchase out for a spin.

Dreamt About This Car For a Long Time

Towards the end of the video, Neo opens up to her audience and gets emotional as she recounts her journey as a social media influencer and how her perseverance has enabled her to achieve her dreams.

She says that she has always dreamt about purchasing a Lamborghini Huracan, and even shared an Instagram post from 2016 as proof.

The 24-year-old said that when she bought her first car, a Mercedes, she viewed it as a “huge achievement” and felt that it was the “furthest she could go in life.”
