REVISION II: I have found someone for this role!! Thank you so much for your interests x
REVISION: After reading my 12:30am plea for help, I realized it did come off indulgent and entitled, and for that I apologize. I’m not really the best at communicating, hah, it tends to get me in trouble at times and I feel like I’m always doing damage control.
But, you’re right, if I call it a job, I should at least offer a living wage… and if I’m being completely honest… I am just grazing my comfortable living and truthfully don’t have the means to support another human financially – for now (‘cause I think with the right help, I could). If you couldn’t tell by now, I am very picky about the sponsors I take on and sometimes, would rather pull rent money from my savings than to take on a sponsorship that I don’t feel aligned with or a have connection towards. Perhaps rewording this as an internship would be a better case?
Now I consider myself to be a fair person and will always make sure everyone around me is comfortable and knows that I value and appreciate their time, I hope I haven’t shown anyone proof otherwise of my personality. I would much rather undersell a project and over deliver than to oversell and under deliver. I have some projects in the pipeline that aren’t set in stone yet, and if those pull through, then suddenly I will have a bigger budget to work with. I’m also always in contact with people who are looking for talent to hire and have often referred people I’ve worked with to them – you just never know where your journey will take you.
Ultimately yes, I am asking for you to take a risk on me, and it’s not for you, no hard feelings. However, what I don’t want, is for there to be any room for misjudgment on my character; which is why I wanted to write this follow up note in the spirit of transparency.
I am asking for help, officially. In evaluating what I want to invest my time into this year… I thought of many things: youtube, self-growth, relationships, creativity. There are so many facets of my life that have tremendous potential yet I keep coming back to this: a team.
Starting the YouTube channel was not only meant to share my life, but I wanted it to be a place to collaborate and foster talent. It’s fun for me. But I also know I haven’t even touched the peak of what I’m capable of. My dreams are becoming far too large for my own two hands and with many of you extending a helping hand, asking this community made the most sense. However, I don’t have much money to offer but hope to properly compensate you with beauty goodies, mentorship, and sending you off in the right direction.
While this may seem gratuitous for just a YouTube channel, I am hoping to take on a few projects outside of That’s Chic. With the right person to bounce off of, we can really make magic ✨✨ But I need someone willing to grow with me, and who knows where that can lead!?
