Roz Purcell is a woman of many talents and now she’s after revealing just how exactly she makes money after a fan inquired about a recent major purchase during an Instagram Q&A.
The former Miss Universe Ireland candidly opened up to her followers about her income stream, detailing her various jobs to her 540K followers.
After recently investing in a plot of land in a forest, Roz left many fans wondering how actually she could afford it while on a social media salary.
As always, Roz was all too happy to break down her various money-making ventures for those curious, never shying away from any question that is thrown her way.
“‘I work with brands through social media on this page (I know I don’t do loads of ads but I work with a few I love over a long period) prob could be earning way more but I don’t want to be a walking billboard,” she responded.
‘Traditional media jobs (whether it’s radio/writing),” was another avenue in her career path.
While she also touched on her recent big buy saying: “That forest fee was money I had been saving for a mortgage for the past 8-10 years. So it’s not like I just had it lying around.”
The questions regarding money didn’t end there, however, as another fan was curious to know how much money she earns from her popular cookbooks
“‘Definitely depends on the book and how well it does. Usually, there’s an advance fee (this is usually much smaller for a photo heavy book like a cookbook as a lot of the books expenses goes into photography & colour print) after tax you might get €1-2 per book sold after a certain amount. E.g. 10,000/5,000 are sold. This can also be affected by discounts, etc,” she explained.
Continuing: “So the author wouldn’t be the main earner more the publishing house. I think the majority of people who do books do it for a love of it and passion.”
Well there you have it folks, now you know!
