When entrepreneur Rayfil Wong realized he had a great idea on how to teach young people about finance and buy stock shares online through a Youtube channel called Professor Savings, he had one major problem - funding. Wong found an odd way to fund his company - hand modeling. Wong said, I constantly get comments that I have nice hands, just like George Costanza from Seinfield. So he signed up with a local modeling agency in San Francisco and became a hand model. Wong received around $750 for a day's shoot which included hovering his index finger over a tablet during the course of the day. His clients include major tech companies such as Hewlett Packard and Apple.
With his savings of $6,000 from hand modeling, he started Professor Savings Youtube channel that aims to teach finance, budgeting, and how to buy stock shares online aimed at college students to young adults.
