Shaban only released a short film about Balletshofer on YouTube in March. In it he talked about his projects as a model, actor and author, but saw himself primarily as an entrepreneur. Balletshofer founded a company at the age of 19 with which he offered math tuition for high school graduates throughout Germany.
