28-year-old Sarah Hughes from Gloucestershire had gone from minimum wage to earning almost R115,000 a month making TV jingles, reports PA. 

A trained musician, Hughes studied creative sound at Newport University in South Wales.

She struggled to find a job after finishing her degree.

After advertising her musical skills on freelance marketplace Fiverr, her career skyrocketed.

She now makes commercial jingles and professional voiceovers and even bespoke love songs.

She works 3 to 4 hours a day.

Her career has even funded her first house, which she bought with her husband.

After being told her degree in the arts would not get her anywhere, she is happy that she has proved the doubters wrong.
