When Vanessa began her Youtube journey she started in the hair and makeup niche and found that was not for her. She pivoted to sharing her story about leaving her corporate 9-5, how to survive as a millennial in today’s world, and found herself focusing on what millennials needed, eventually stumbling onto sharing Instagram and Social Media tips with an Instagram hacks video she thought would never take off.
