I know a lot of us get intimated by creating content and even some of us who have been doing this for a long time start to question our craft. It might be easier to said than done, but everything comes down to balance and that's what we are talking about it today. Content creation is just like any other job and what I mean by that is it will feel like a job from time to time, but just like any other job, it is important to lear...

As much as we don't want to admit it, we tend to associate fame with money, but in reality, these two things don't usually come together. It certainly could, but it doesn't happen automatically as most people think. It's all about how you go about it and how one could use fame to better their future.

We've all been there. When someone you work with gets a promotion or someone gets a job that you always dreamed of then the comparison starts. This is referred to as social comparison and it might seem like maybe a healthy way to push yourself to do better, but in reality, it makes you feel bad about yourself and that it no longer becomes a healthy competition. Instead, it just turns into enviousness.

We have all been there either we took a long vacation or the sickness got the best in us. In my case, it was COVID. So I definitely didn't plan on it and having to take a break from my usual routine on top of being back from a short trip was tough. So I thought I could make an episode about how to get back on track with our usual routines.

Regrets are something that could set us back and almost makes us feel like we messed up and there is no way to fix it. The truth is there is technically no way to just go back and fix it, but there are ways to deal with it so you can move on and make better choices that you won't regret. In fact, you should think of regrets as part of life so you don't take them too seriously. This is not to say not learn from them, but mo...

From the outside, everything might look picture-perfect and seem like it just all came together in that one moment like it was so easy to do, but I'm here to tell you that's far from the truth when it comes to creating content. There are so many moving parts and it obviously depends on the type of the content. One could create all by themselves technically, but there are some types of content that you obviously need help wi...

Contrary to what most people think what you share on social media is important regardless of if you have a huge audience or not because the truth is times have changed and brands are looking. Social media managers, PR people you name it they are spending countless hours on Instagram, TikTok or YouTube to find their next talent and it's not about the numbers anymore. It's about the content. Well there are more to it, but ini...

In the beginning stages of a new relationship, we tend to get super excited and it becomes overwhelming and consuming. We start to spend all of our time and attention on that relationship and tend to neglect the other relationships we have built including our family. I think everyone at one point is guilty of this so don't feel like you're the only one, but it is important to not let this excitement and novelty take over y...

Are you an aspiring content creator or the one who is self-managed? Then this is the episode for you. Unlike many other professions out there being a content creator doesn't really come with a manual. Not to say other professions are easy, but like going on a route like becoming a lawyer or a doctor, you know exactly what to expect and how you will make money. However, being a content creator has so many moving parts and one of...

Whether you like them or not, chances are you have come across influencers when you scroll through your feed on your favorite social channels. I personally hate the word influencer and this is coming from someone who is one and I assure you a lot of us actually don't even refer to ourselves with this word. 

Influencer culture started through Instagram and now it is changing. Many people question maybe this is the end of influen...

I know after a while we get too comfortable just being with ourselves, but it is important to put ourselves out there from time to time. I know being out of our comfort zone is not something we want to do, but you never know maybe this would be your chance to find the ONE. Besides that, remember life is all about experiences and trying things so now you have no excuse since the summer is about to start which means it is time for yo...

Do you have a backup plan if all fails? By all, I mean the presence that you have created on social platforms. I know you might think maybe this is a bit premature to think like that, but you would be surprised how many people don't have backup plans when it comes to their social media strategy. The truth is we don't own anything on these platforms except the content so it is important to think of options outside the platfo...

Overachieving can be a good skill to have but it is also a problematic one. Society or our past traumas make us think that we need to do better so we see our true value, but is that even healthy to live life like that all the time? Overachieving can be powerful at times, but long term it leads to burnout and overwork.

Summer is just around the corner and I thought it would be interesting to make an episode to talk about some goals that we can accomplish. We don't need to get carried away and start stressing ourselves out like those new year's resolutions, but a few goals to make the summer eventful wouldn't hurt.

Yes, you saw that title right! Coachella is also referred to as Influencer Olympics lol It is quite a big event actually for anyone who is an influencer or just in the creator space. Think of Coachella as like Met Gala for Influencers. Stakes are so high and so much is happening all the time at these festivals overall, but Coachella is just the next level. The reason I wanted to talk about this is that I think sometimes we get that...

Do you ever look at yourself in the mirror and say things like "ew I don't like this, why does this look like that, is this how I look usually." No one looks their best at all times. We all have some bad days and good days when it comes to our physical appearance. However, things get a little tricky with social media. As we work on our journey to get into the best shape of our life, seeing unrealistic body figures every...

I think sometimes we almost forget that there is a person on the other side of the screen and we start commenting, DM, or sharing things that we would never say to a stranger in real life. Believe it or not, they matter. Truth is everyone has insecurities and things that they might not be proud of and it takes guts I mean a lot of guts to put yourself out there on social media and share your life, experiences, tips, or opinions abo...

I'm sure by now you have heard about Chris Rock & Will Smith incident and I thought it would be interesting to talk about violence and also the consequences of bad humor. Maybe someone might think Jada was just being too sensitive, but I think the society that we are living in and the things that we are facing these days especially due to certain exposure on social media and TV become a sensitive topic to joke about someone...
