“One million active subscribers makes us one of the most successful conservative media companies of all time,” said Boreing. “It took us five years to get our first 100,000 active subscribers. But we doubled down, reached higher, pushed harder and, just two-and-a-half years later, we’ve 10 Xed that number.”
