SIDE HUSTLE: A local ‘influencer’ has became the latest person to post an end of year tribute selfie.

With 2,300 instagram followers, Joe Hewitson is also a ‘content creator’ operating as a sole trader.

“Fu*k u 2021,” he captioned his selfie, despite this year being his most profitable year ever.

The 24 year old earned $58,000 in Job Keeper payments in 2021, including a small business grant.

Typically he only earns $19,000, as he does most of his work for free.

With some savings now in the bank, Joe Hewitson says he’s ready to start scoping out fresh content creation opportunities in 2022.

“I also want to get into crypto,” he says.

More to come.
