It took a few years and I am still growing but I’ve found many ways to generate an income without compromising the content.

What’s the best advice you ever received from another creator or mentor?

Do what you love, something you can see yourself doing for 80 years. Don’t compromise because it gets you money, views or hits. If you do what you are passionate about. You’ll never get bored and it will always be successful because it comes from the heart.

Who are your biggest influences? Who or what inspired you to do what you’re doing now?

Tony Robbins, Marie Forleo, Gary Vaynerchuk & Marianne Williamson

What is your biggest challenge as a creator?

Growing my platform and constantly uploading across platforms

What do you find are a creator’s or influencer’s biggest stumbling blocks and what are the best ways you’ve found to overcome them?

The biggest stumbling block is when creators make their content for other people and not themselves. When a video hits an instant reaction is to make another similar to get more views. However sometimes the video that hits isn’t something you are passionate about. Do not sacrifice who you are for views or money. Be yourself, you may grow slower but you will not get tired of your content or grow out of it like so many do.

What’s next for you? Long term? Short term?

I want to become an on camera personality, motivational speaker and entrepreneur.
