Not too long ago, I left my career without a Plan B. Here are a few lessons from my journey as a corporate dropout turned Pinterest content creator…
About a decade ago, I started playing around on Pinterest after I purchased my first home. I found all sorts of home decor inspiration and a ton of useful career tips too.Years later, while I was in yoga teacher training, I setup a website on mental wellness. I also started creatings pins for my health and wellness lifestyle blogs.
Not too long after, my website grew quickly and I was in business! Several startups and small businesses asked for help with marketing on Pinterest. Eventually, that led me to start my own Pinterest marketing business. I created content for local businesses to international brands.
To this day, I love creating content on Pinterest all day every day.What can I say? I'm a Pinterest nerd. I live and breathe Pinterest. And yes, businesses pay me to create content too! But going from corporate dropout to self-employed wasn’t easy.
In July 2019, I resigned from the corporate world. A month later, I sold my home, gave everything else away and moved across the country.
Since then, I haven't looked back. Here are a few things I wish I knew earlier in order to become a Pinterest content creator:
1. Consistency over frequency 🔑
While creating quality content doesn't happen overnight, all it takes is consistency.
