Each week we profile a young self-starter who created their own job in the segment called “Boss of Me.”
This week, we’re featuring Cody Johns, one of the first people to create videos on the Vine app. Johns has more than 1.6 million Vine followers and is literally making a living off of his social media fame. In fact, he recently paid off his student loans in full (jealous yet?).
Johns has parlayed his online success into a career at Niche, a company which helps promote brand awareness using platforms like Vine, Instagram and Twitter. We talked to him about how he got started, his advice for other young creators and what it’s like to suddenly have so many fans.
