This week we caught up with our VIP Member, Raychel...
How long have you been blogging and what motivated you to start?
I've been blogging for around 10 years or so and I initially started because I had to (part of my degree in Journalism covered blogging) but once I got into it... That was me done. The people I've met, the experiences I've had and being able to watch brands bloom and grow has been incredible.At the same time though, I wanted to see more representation for women who looked like me and so I rolled my sleeves up and got involved. I wanted to be able to give an authentic view on products used and experiences for when women like me went looking for reviews.
What has been your biggest challenge so far?
Biggest challenge so far, like anything is growing your network. It can seem difficult when you're not used to it or if you stop doing it consistently. So maintaining that that can be a challenge when life "gets in the way"
What's a typical day like for you?
A typical day would involve starting the day at 7am - training at the gym and then dealing with admin. I work in the film and music industry too so typically I would spend some time catching up with my agent, scheduling auditions and gigs, going through scripts and then wrapping up with some friends and family time.
Finally, If you had one piece of advice to give to other aspiring influencers, what would it be?
Oh that's easy, just start. And stay consist. The cornerstone to any successful venture x
