Welcome back listeners! On today's solo episode Bernie is interviewing our lovely guest Debbie Poh. Debbie is a Vancouver-based conscious fashion content creator and writer striving for a more sustainable and intentional lifestyle. She recently quit her corporate finance job in order to pursue a creative career— with the happy side effect of now having more time to spend on self-care, her dog, hiking, and writing. In this episode Debbie opens up to Bernie about important values that she lost while working corporate, which she then regained after becoming self employed. She also touched on the importance of knowing your values in your work and charging brands accordingly, which honestly at the beginning is a STRUGGLE.   As you are all already familiar, Bernie and Debbie are in the same/similar line of work, so naturally many other important topics where discussed. The girls dove right in with the importance of sharing vs gatekeeping in the social media space, having multiple streams of income, the stigma around content creation (influencers), and the reality of false influencing (yes it's a thing). They also talked about incorporating your personal passions in your work and how that can be beneficial to your content and brand image as a whole. Bernie also took the opportunity to pick Debbie's brain about topics such as;  being a visible minority in this field of work and tokenism which as we know there is A LOT to unpack there.   Finally,  this episode ended with an optimistic tone as the girls reflected on the positive changes that are taking place in the social media industry. We hope you enjoyed this episode as much as all the others, this far. If you liked what you heard and like what you've been hearing, leave Bernie and Yasmine a cute little rating below.
