Move over, Sheryl Sandberg! Sarah Roberts, a 25-year-old NYC resident, has found an innovative way to make her living without the soul-sucking dregs of 9-to-5 work – simply by sending Venmo requests for group purchases she charges to her parents’ credit card.
After college, Sarah bravely decided to take her time searching for just the right job opportunity. Instead of jamming herself into the workforce willy nilly, this millennial found a sustainable income by depending only on her entrepreneurial instincts – and her parents’ Amex.
“We stopped giving Sarah an allowance when she graduated from Penn State. We are so proud that our baby girl is making it in the big city all on her own!” said Sarah’s clueless mom, Sharon.
When asked about how she came up with this scrappy business idea, Sarah modestly shared her inspiration.
“Well, my parents don’t want me to starve so they pay for my Seamless,” said the literal genius. “Luckily my roommates and I order takeout together a lot. And when they repaid me on Venmo, I didn’t reimburse my parents. That’s when I realized I was really onto something.”
Sarah, who graduated with honors, did not apply for a jobs nor update her resume before moving to one of the most expensive cities in the country.
“I hustle for every opportunity,” said Sarah. “When my friend Kate invited me to her bachelorette party, I immediately reached out to the Maid of Honor and offered to put the Airbnb on my card. That was two months’ rent.”
What a go-getter!
Against all odds, Sarah finds the time to manage her work-life balance by investing in female friendships while running her one-woman startup.
“I’m so lucky to live with Sarah!” says roommate and friend Bethany. “She always has a new Amazon Prime package coming to stock the apartment. All I have to do is accept her Venmo! I’ve never once had to worry about running low on toilet paper.”
Sarah, who was aptly voted “Most Likely To Succeed” in high school, still has no plan to start looking for employment. When asked about the future, she said, “I don’t know. Maybe, like, travel Europe?”
