I loved chatting with LaToya. We have similar personalities and had a ton of fun in this interview. I met her at Generation Beauty earlier this year in LA while we were both hustling and chatting up a rep from a huge hair care line. I listened to her pitch the rep and I was like, ok, I need this girl on my podcast. We exchanged cards and the rest is history!

LaToya is on the smaller side of YouTubers who I interview, but her story is really interesting and inspiring. She is a hustler and a hard worker who has incorpoerated her talent for acting and speaking into her channel. She also hit on an important point of finding what your audience likes and going with it. She mentions an amazing internet resource I had never heard of that I am obsessed with now as well as some good advice when it comes to embracing yourself and being yourself on YouTube.

What You Will Learn:

  • What it means to have multiple channels on YouTube
  • Her experiences losing her YouTube channel.
  • Hugely valuable internet resource.
  • Embracing who you are and being yourself on YouTube.

  • Hi Erika, awesome podcast episode! I love how in each I am never left hanging with questions because you seem to get all the ones I want to know.

    I thought in this episode the awesome resource was “Think with Google” that’s what got me to your site:). The link you have in your notes took me somewhere else… might have been a glitch.

    Thank for your podcasts and keep em’ coming!!
