I have plans to set up at least 50 new locations within the next 90 days, with a goal of reaching over 100k people per week (in 6 nearby cities). I also plan to use $1200 per month or less for 3 months to pay for basic living expenses. This will help me pay my student loans and other basic living expenses without having to find a second job.
