There are creators, and then there are SUPER creators. Even these influencers, whose followers amount to millions (and millions), we can’t forget that they all had to start somewhere. During this discussion, we will hear from creators who have “made it” in the sense that their hard work and efforts have allowed them to turn their passion into a career. Whether through their own personal platforms or as part of a digital network, these creators will share with us the ups and downs of their journeys and offer their advice to those who are just getting started.

-How did they got started

-Learn when they found the “secret sauce” to their content that pushed them into super success

-How do they handle the pressure to continually create content? 

-What lessons have stuck with them most during their journey 

-Tips and tricks to being a super creator yourself
