I’ve said this before and got some funny comments, but it’s still the truth years later. While I don’t have as much time for it anymore, starting my YouTube channel in 2010 was one of the most life changing decisions I’ve ever made.
Starting my YouTube channel is how I got my first internship, which led to my first full-time job. It’s why I started this website, that served as my resume the year I was freelancing. Yes, a blog as a resume? It’s a lot more common than you think. Then, it’s how I stood out when I applied to work at AB&A Advertising. My channel and blog has stood as my cover letter, effectively, my whole adult life. Let’s not fail to mention all the cool products I’ve tried from brands because of this digital presence as well. One of my favorite perks is helping brands promote their products.
So I just wanted to say, stick to what’s fun, whenever you can. You never know where it’ll lead you. For all you know, it’ll open you up to more opportunity.

PS, this photo has nothing to do with this post. I just love it and wanted to drop it in here. Ah, the little things.
