How do you stay inspired and make a different content from a lot of the existing youtubers? You are such a breath of fresh air!
Admin Reply by: Rachel
It actually makes me more inspired to NOT make what everyone else is making. It's actually easier to narrow down what you don't want to do.

If you ever needed some time to re-discover yourself, where would you go?
Admin Reply by: Rachel
Somewhere really foreign but with lots of natural escapes.

Have you ever feel fear to start a new proyect and? How to overcome fear?
Admin Reply by: Rachel
Laziness more than fear. I overcome fear when I remind myself that the reward on the other side weighs more than the fear to get there, IE: an apartment without spiders if I can just get over the fact that I am face-to-face with a spider and all I need to do... is to get the damn thing inside of the cup... walk outside... without it jumping on me... to release it.

How did you start getting into the industry and making the correct connections?πŸ’™
Admin Reply by: Rachel
It helps being in a city with a thriving community of the industry you see yourself in. One friend will lead to another, and then you'll always yourself with something to do. Be nice to everyone.

Admin Reply by: Rachel
Honestly, I have less of an idea now than when I first started. But thank you! I am just making things that I like right now when I find it therapeutic.

Admin Reply by: Rachel
I'm doing some consulting jobs, but still mostly YouTube/influencer stuff. I'm lucky that I have one great client (Adobe) that keeps me afloat while I have my existential crisis.

Realizing you are in charge of your life. Also, the power of manifesting. And SMILING! Smiling brings joy for yourself and from other and it fosters a positive environment πŸ™‚

how do you keep your skin so PERFECT? thanks raych, love ya! xx
Admin Reply by: Rachel
I swear by the 10 step skincare girl. But also, age. Not being in your late teens and early twenties does something GREAT to your skin, then something awful, so important to use preventative skincare early on! x

What are your goals for the future and what kind of projects would you like to work on that you haven't experienced yet? 😊
Admin Reply by: Rachel
You know, I've been wanting to do a brand for a REALLY long time. I happen to sit on a lot of my ideas and projects until one day it starts to unfold. There's too much of everything: new brands, new bloggers, new shops, new consumeristic means, and right now, I am enjoying creating my own silence and hoping to find a way to channel my creativity in a way that contributes to the conversation.

When starting out on Youtube, should quantity be over quality? Sometimes making "quality" content takes a lot of time to plan, film, and edit (especially if u are doing it all on ur own). Any advice?
Admin Reply by: Rachel
As hard as it can be to make beautiful content on your own, the internet has way too much noise with not enough substance. I always enjoy consuming things from artists who make things for themselves than to please the public x

What's the most important pair of shoes in your life n why?
Admin Reply by: Rachel
I mean, I have these pair of Miu Miu glitter shoes that I've never been able to get rid of but I also never wear it. They're too precious to exit my life.

How do you get out of a creative rut when you're feeling uninspired?
Admin Reply by: Rachel
Get off the internet and do something active/in nature. WWW can be such an overwhelming space with too much inspiration or means to compare yourself to others. Best to visit the things that you enjoy with fresh eyes.
