Here are my favorite quotes from this episode along with the answers to the Beauty Bonus Round!
I‘m there to teach women to be more confident, to encourage them to try things they haven’t tried before.
I learned so much through that blog just on its own. I got into eyeshadow and MAC has many different eyeshadows and thought there was no way for me to remember all these looks. So I started taking pictures of each of these looks so I can remember what I’m creating. I thought, this is an awesome resource other people might find it valuable.
I had a coworker at work who I had to ask, what is a blog?
It was intimidating, let me tell you. I bit the bullet and got on YouTube.
My first video was absolutely awful.
I am busier than a one legged man in a butt kicking contest.
I grew up in a time when you had to learn from magazines and there was no YouTube.
I dont feel like I was me in the beginning.

Who is your Beauty Vlogger Inspiration?
What is your best tip to increase your subscriber rate?
Be yourself. An original is worth more than a copy anyday, so be yourself.
What is your best piece of advice for anyone who is starting a YouTube channel?
Have thick skin. Realize that there is a lot of good that comes with it but there is also a little bit of bad like anything. You can’t expect to be an overnight success either. If you go into YouTube thinking that you are going to be an overnight success and are going to get there real quick, You are going to be really disappointed and really resentful and it’s going to show in your videos and it’s going to turn people off. If you are going into it, do it because you want to do it, because it’s fun. But if you want to be at a bigger level at some point, patience and perseverance, don’t stop.
