How much money does Katie make?
I looked through several of the different types of sessions available to book on the website, and saw prices ranging from $18 to $90 per hour.
Unfortunately, there’s no way to see if performers on VBC are actually getting hired at those rates. I also couldn’t find any info on fees you’d need to pay to VBC for work found through their platform.
