What is the most useful item in your workspace?
The most useful item on my desk is my new M2 Max Mac Studio. Since getting it a couple months ago, my productivity has skyrocketed - especially for editing videos and transferring large amounts of footage. It's been a gamechanger!
What does your typical daily routine look like?
My daily routine is pretty busy between work, family, and content creation. After my 9-5, I help my wife care for our daughter until she goes to bed around 9PM. Then from 9PM-1AM is my time to work on client projects and capture content for my social channels before going to bed. It's a hustle balancing it all, but I somehow make it work!
Coffee or tea?
As for coffee or tea - I used to be a big coffee person, but have switched more to tea now. Both have their perks, but I'm team tea + honey these days! Haha
I know it's not always easy seeing such polished content online and wishing you had it or that what you have is not good enough. My advice is to be grateful for what you have, and work hard towards your dreams - no matter how small your starting point is. When I began, my setup was in a corner of my daughter's room with just a laptop, monitor, and some cheap decor. But through consistency and determination, social media opened doors to my dream job and brand partnerships. What I have now comes from hard work, not wealth. Let no one discourage you from chasing your dreams and goals. Start from where you are!
