with over 140 long-form videos, Dina’s channel is a beacon of inspiration, covering topics from business and side hustles to personal development.

Dina’s venture into YouTube in 2020 was initially a strategy to expand her calligraphy email list. Little did she know, this platform would become a cornerstone of her career. “I started my YouTube journey in 2020, never thinking I would become a full-time content creator,” Dina reflects. “A year and a half after doing YouTube, and learning just how much time and effort had to go into it, I was faced with the decision of whether or not to continue. I decided to keep going and broaden up the topics so I felt more inspired about creating.”

Her YouTube channel saw gradual growth until her 99th video, “My first month on Etsy results,” became a turning point. This video sparked a surge in subscribers, skyrocketing her channel from 5,000 to 50,000 subscribers in just one year. Now, with over 140 long-form videos, Dina’s channel is a beacon of inspiration, covering topics from business and side hustles to personal development.
