How to start a YouTube channel from your phone and getting fired from M&S ft. Zara

Welcome to a brand spankin new episode of the podcast (and the last of season 1!!!) In this episode, I had the privilege of sitting down with the talented and up-and-coming 20-year-old YouTuber and TikToker, Zara aka Sarah. Zara shared how she started her YouTube from her phone and how she overcame cringe culture and threw herself into social media. We dived into the importance of honing your craft and the interesting topic of how influencing might not be here forever. This was a good laugh and there are definitely many points to be taken away for those who want to get over the fear of being cringe and launch their own YouTube, TikTok, Podcast etc whatever it may be. ENJOY THE EPISODE.

"People aren't prepared to face how extreme mental health can be" ft. Chris MacRae #16

"People aren't prepared to face how extreme mental health can be" ft. Chris MacRae #16

**TRIGGER WARNING: SUICIDE**This week we are joined by Chris MacRae. Chris shares the story of his mother, Sara Lilian MacRae, and her long battle with depression, mental illness, and psychosis. She worked as a doctor in A&E and as a psychiatrist in London while also bringing up Chris on her own. They eventually moved up to Edinburgh where she was in and out of hospital with mental health problems. During one of Chris’ visits to his mother, her condition had worsened and she was threatening to take her own life with a scarf. Chris warned a nurse and they assured him that they would remove it. Less than an hour later, Sara took her own life with the scarf left in her room. The NHS failed Sara and we are here to bring her justice. If you or anyone you know needs help please seek advice from a loved one, or a doctor or contact a helpline. I promise you, you are not alone. You can read more about Sara on Chris’ Facebook post. - Chris’ instagram - https://www.instagram.com/chrismacrae_/ Podcast - https://linktr.ee/gabriellelivingstone Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/giftofthegab_podcast/ TikTok - https://www.tiktok.com/@giftofthegabpc
