Memorable Quotes:

"Do not sell yourself short. There is no harm in asking if they have a budget for this type of partnership...As a smaller content creator, be involved with your influencer network."
"You might say, I don't have that many followers, I only have 500 followers, I only have 2,000 followers. What can I really do with that? Would you be okay with 500 people showing up at your house right now? Or 2,000 people? It's a lot of people! Do not discount that at all! It's incredible at any number point to have those people interested in what you have to say & share. Don't overlook it just because you're looking toward that next goal. Find ways to serve them & that's how you can continue to grow."
"Don't be scared to pitch brands. Get those examples together, make sure you're putting out great content, make sure you have a great engagement rate. Go out there. The worst thing they can say is no."
