012: Balancing passion and making a living as a Content Creator

#12 Recently on Clubhouse, I met a content creator from Trinidad, and when I asked him what he was up to, he said, "I'm trying to make a living while being passionate about my work". His words left an impression on me. Because although content creation is a side hustle for me. there are things I'd love to accomplish, things that cost money like sending Farmer Harry to Antigua. Farmer Harry is a farmer who lives off-grid in Trinidad, and he has his own YouTube channel. And sometimes, to make money, it feels like, we have to move away from the things we're passionate about, like writing, singing, and painting. Today we're talking about ways to boost passion and make a living as a content creator.

007: The road to 150,000 TikTok followers with The Trini Alphabet Guy

007: The road to 150,000 TikTok followers with The Trini Alphabet Guy

Today we're talking to Stephon Felmine, a content creator from Trinidad. He's an Economics teacher at Morvant Secondary school and his Facebook page describes him as the TikTok Trini Alphabet Guy. On the 11th of April 2020, he posted his first Tik Tok video and since then he's amassed almost 150,000 followers and 2.8 million likes, which is truly extraordinary.

I admire his daily grind and ability to connect with brands. He's showing up on social media every day, sometimes twice a day, producing content as different characters, and ads, showing up for events, and inspiring his students. I know it isn't easy but he makes it look easy. Today I'm talking with his team about what happens behind the scenes, from idea generation to filming, editing, and creating relatable skits and characters.
