I know I have talked about this topic before, but I realized I haven't covered everything. I don't think I will ever be able to cover it in one episode so I decided to turn this into a series so I can talk about it regularly about my experience working with brands. This is not meant to bash brands or anything, but it is more to educate the up-and-coming creators and even current ones so there are not any discrepancies when...

I know how the title of this episode sounds, but hear me out. This is not one of those pessimist sob stories. Preparing for the worst can be actually very useful for the future; whatever that future would be either a change of careers, new responsibilities, or simply a change of scenery. We don't have to necessarily think that worst is always going to happen but think of it like the insurance you get for your car or home. You d...

New York Fashion Week just concluded its shows for this year and I thought it would be interesting to talk about what really goes behind the scenes, how one gets invited, what happens at parties, and lastly how one networks through all this. It's quite a process and for sure not for everyone, but if you're interested in going to the shows or just wanted to hear what it is like to go to NYFW this is the episode for you.

Ever heard of the phrase "don't judge the book by its cover" well, that's exactly what we do in our society. As much as we say looks, money, job whatever it may be doesn't matter, in reality, it does hence first impressions are everything and it is hard to change that. I thought this would be an interesting topic to talk about as recently I experienced this myself. It's been maybe barely 2 weeks since I boug...

Therapy is something that I think is truly so valuable at every stage of our lives, some more than others. This episode isn't necessarily just about therapy, but more about why sometimes we need it and do actually have to return so we can have a good mental state of mind. This is not to say we are a failure or we can't handle what life throws at us, but it is to say we need a check-up just like we do for our physical every ...

Responsibilities? Ugh, who wants that am I right?! If we look closely though, responsibilities are the way that we learn the big lessons in life or get the biggest rewards that we never thought we could. Responsibilities help us break our shells so we can get out of our comfort zone and start challenging ourselves for bigger and better things.

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 ever feel like you haven't truly understood what your purpose is in life or what you really meant to be doing? Truth is this is an ongoing journey of finding ourselves every phase of our lives we change and evolve hence having to find ourselves again. Hope this episode helps with that.

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.
