Chanel Uzi is an influencer who has worked in Los Angeles for the past 8 years as a designer of men’s clothing. Despite her undoubted talent, she had not been taken seriously in the work she was doing. Her ideas, instead of being valued for being one of the few girls in the body of designers, were ignored.
But, this was not a reason for Uzi to stop believing in her abilities. On the contrary, it was what motivated her to find in social platforms a perfect setting for her art. Instagram has been one of them.
This talented model and creative started publishing sexy photos eventually, which gradually caught attention. However, she didn’t stop modeling, doing one job or another while creating and publishing her content.
She points out that it was fun because collaborations with other brands grew over time. That way, she kept working until content creation and modeling became her main job.
Step by Step You Get Far
As we can appreciate in Uzi’s history, those who perseveres reaches. Despite not obtaining the appreciation of her work for many years she did not stop trying. Progressively, she achieved the recognition her work deserved. In many cases, when we don’t get what we want in a short time, we simply stop trying.
This influencer and model inspires us to continue to strive for recognition. For, in the way she least imagined, she has reaped the success of her talent and work. Now, just a couple of years after starting those eventual publications she has reached 1 million followers on Instagram.
However, this is not the only platform she is growing on now, but also on OnlyFans and TikTok. Although it is not what she planned, she is glad about the recognition that her work is getting on different platforms.
The Challenges of a Creative Person
In all areas of life, there are challenges, sometimes we do not think that people who create have problems doing so. However, someone creative can go through difficult times when they are not inspired and motivated. Doing any work that does not involve inspiration is a little easier. For artists to lose inspiration is to lose everything. They are still able to create, but not with the same success as being motivated.
As expected for Uzi it has also been a challenge to overcome the lack of inspiration and motivation. So she acts immediately, remembering the reasons why she carries out every aspect of her work.
The reasons that motivate you will always be the source of inspiration you need. Whatever your talent or your work is, there will always be challenges to overcome. It is up to you to take the strength you need from the reasons that move you and move forward.
Let Your Work Speak for You
It is a fact that success is not achieved by talking about it, it is done through work, dedication, and effort.
It’s a job that takes time but she creates a real connection with those who support and appreciate her work. For her, creating content goes far beyond just offering beautiful pictures and gaining a following.
Uzi points out that it is very important to interact and participate with the people who follow you. There is no formula for gaining a following or getting many people to like your work overnight.
Therefore, it is very important to be constant and true to yourself, not everyone will love your content. But you should focus on those who do. Uzi, advises those who like her, seek success to work for their followers, and not pay much attention to the detractors.
Similarly, focusing on building a loyal fan base takes time but is worth it.Opinions expressed here are the opinions of the author.
