It’s not hard to see why Periscope appealed to Jon Jacques, a 20-something who worked for a video marketing company in New York City — the app that gives you instant access to a captive global audience. So a few months ago, he decided to give it a try during his free time after work and on weekends. Quickly, though, he saw his street magic performances were turning into something more.
In June, Jacques quit his high-paying job to Periscope full-time. He was determined to make money from Periscope and use it to help people in need.
