I’m normally in town having meetings or recording my podcast. If I need a little push to get me through the afternoon slump, I watch Brené Brine on YouTube. She’s a motivational speaker and talks a lot about shame and vulnerability and I just find her really uplifting. It just gives you that boost when you need when you feel a bit low.
Everybody thinks that as an influencer I just swan around taking pictures, which of course is a part of it. However, there’s so much involved in the start to finish of receiving a brief from a brand. Getting a concept, understanding what the brief is, having my legal team run through exactly what I’m required to do. Then, there’s looking at locations, imagery, and styling is such a key component.
But, I also do other things, I also have my new podcast that I have to prep for. I’ll research and write questions up and organise with a studio that I work with in Kensington. I also travel a lot so often I’m working at airports, overseas and in different time zones to people so it can be really varied but that’s exactly where I thrive.
Only until February this year, I had a full-time job, I worked in administration, in a 9-5 role and I just realised that I was so unhappy there. I flourish best when I’m creative and doing multi-functional things. I like how one day I’m doing a podcast, then I’ll do a photoshoot, prepping or writing a travel piece on my blog. I like the fact it’s a diverse role.
