  2. Do you have to quit your job before you can grow your following etc.?

  3. Loved your favorite question… I do hair and I get bombarded by texts, emails, 3 Facebook pages, Instagram, LinkedIn and phone calls a day. Plus do hair, take photos even when I am running behind. But all my clients as they say want to be Facebook famous! 😜 so my clients are amazing even if I run a few minutes behind. So that being said great question and great answer!!

  4. I agree with you on not wanting to be in a cubicle behind a desk for the rest of my life 😩

  5. Kenya? Karibu: meaning welcome. I loved your video, thank you for the advice and honesty.

  6. This covers a lot of information. Thanks for sharing. I think when you have a passion for it it helps. I love blogging and vlogging because I feel like I’m helping someone . So much to learn and grow.

  7. Thank you very much for this. I had no idea where to start and after looking at many videos yours really put everything in the right perspective. I'm a follower.

  8. I was about to ask how the heck she did this with 10k subscribers. Then I checked her IG and it all made sense lol

  9. BRUH HOWWWW you get 10k in 3months??? TEACH ME!!!

  10. one of the best things about your channel is you are so real, saying things just as they are connects people so better. 💕💕….I am not into travel but I am really drawn into what you say and who you are

  11. I have a huge question. I already have instagram with 2,000 followers and i have 312 followers on youtube. I mostly do hair tutorials on youtube, dating stories, and a few travel vlogs. I feel like on youtube people are not really interested in travel vlogs, so I stopped making them. I have a full time profession in nyc, but relocating to san diego soon, and I wanted to do more travel related materials. I've been to about 14-16 places in 8 years out of the USA. I have a lot of travel photos but i didnt want to overwhelm my followers with travel photos. My sister told me that I should just post whatever I want on my instagram, but I kind of feel like I should create a new travel instagram. I just feel like don't interact as much on instagram as i do youtube, but my sister said instagram is more influential that youtube. Do you think I should create a separate instagram? It sometimes takes so long to splits hours on both. I'm sorry I wrote so much, any information helps.

  12. Thank you for sharing so much info. and you’re so sweet and seem genuine. 🙏🏼

  13. I CANNOT EXPRESS WITH WORDS HOW TRULY GRATEFUL I AM FOR THIS VIDEO

    You are an excellent communicator and educator. I can totally see how any seminar or retreat you are a part of would be well worth the time and money.

    Have you tried taking off and landing the mavic in your hand? That's what we do to avoid the sand take offs. Here's a great video although I realize you needed your hands to film the behind the scenes
