Hello my beautiful people! Staying home and scrolling through Netflix to find a show you have not watched yet is now the norm. I don’t know what week or day it is when it comes to quarantine and everyday seems to be a Friday. After reading a bunch of comments, DM’s and conversations on Facebook it seems like the major question a lot of influencers and YouTubers have is – should I be pitching to brands right now? This is a little complicated because it’s not a yes or no answer. It really depends on the brand, your audience and relationship with the brands you are wanting to reach out to. I’ve formulated 4 things to keep in mind if you do decide to reach out to brands during this time. Again, take this with a grain of salt as everyone’s situation is different.
It honestly feels so good to be able to write again. It’s not that I haven’t had my laptop or haven’t had the right ideas for topics to write but it’s more of I haven’t had the motivation or real push to write. And I know, you’re probably thinking, “what the hell, why would I take advice on something like this from someone who’s not in a long-lasting committed relationship?” But just hear me out… Sometimes being on the outside looking in, you have a better idea of what reality is and can even bring up some good points.
“Coronavirus kills 9 people in Washington State”…. “Coronaviruses are common worldwide”… “Chinese doctors perform world’s first double-lung transplant for coronavirus victim”… WHAT THE HELL?! I try my best to hold my tongue and watch my language but everyone is freaking out about COVID-19 but this is hell on earth for all transplant recipients – more so heart patients.
Who would have known I’d be in the emergency room on a random Tuesday just conveniently at 1:08am? Probably you. If you’ve been following me on this wild journey, then you know that I’m a frequent flyer at Abbott Northwestern Hospital. I hate to admit it but I know 90% of the cardiac team by first name and even manage to squeeze in impromptu coffee dates with some while picking up refills of my highly-priced medication.
New month. New beginning. New mindset. New focus. New start. New intensions. New results. I know last week I talked about how to how to successfully set and achieve new goals in 2020 so I guess the next step is to get rid of the old and bring in the new!
