A little bit about my journey...
In 2017, I graduated college and was a preschool teacher. Education has always been my calling and I knew I wanted to be a teacher.
In 2018, I gave birth to my son and while on my maternity leave, I started flirting with the idea of being a motherhood influencer on the side. I kept it as a secret like an alter ego. I returned to work and tried my best to balance posting consistently on Instagram and working full-time. In the last few months of the year, I landed a few gifted collabs, and $1000 in paid collaborations.
In 2019, I had a miserable transition back to work and decided to leave my preschool teaching job. I went into the influencer space full force and earned around $40,000 (on top of my teacher income).
In 2020, I was a full-time influencer and made around $75,000. However, I could have made more income if I had known what I learned at the end of the year.
