That such a life style, money, costs a lot of money, it Mulzer makes no secret: "to be Alone with my teacher's pension I could not Fund my lifestyle" instagram collaborations, how do you maintain so many of the other Influencers, go, he, nevertheless, says he. Offers there were not many, he assured. How it is financed instead? In the otherwise so talkative Regensburger don't want to talk. There were many envious, is all what he says.
According to statistics, the majority of instagram users are between 18 and 24 years old. In his age group Mulzer is one of the few, it doesn't bother. Indeed, most of his friends, including his companion, much younger than he. "With people my age, I can do nothing. The talk only about their illnesses," says Mulzer. This is also why he spends so much time in social media. "Instagram keeps me young, I'm addicted to it," he says.
