Pretty interesting listen. She seemed to grow quickly by getting 100k subscribers in 1 year.

She mentioned that she felt pretty miserable and lonely doing content creation in the early days, which I think resonates with a lot of people who are in this line of work. As much as a regular job sucks, you at least have some camaraderie and common ground with the people you work with. Content creation can be ruthless if your mind is in the wrong headspace.

I've seen some of her videos, she's really great! She's a good example of how a crowded space can be dominated by simply being a likable personality.
