As a freelance writer and Canadian Youtuber, I get blessed with opportunities to do some pretty awesome things. Whether it’s starring in a music video or attending cool events or concerts with the added bonus of back stage access, I’m always down to go and explore venues and activities in a way that not everyone gets to see. Recently, I was invited by Excel Naturally Sweetened Gum to attend a meet and greet with Jillian Harris at a Toronto Interior Design Expo.
Interior design?! Heck. If you knew what my room looked like half the time, you’d be wondering what in the world do I have to do with interior design. Trust me. I thought the same thing. However, it plays into the entire lifestyle theme of my writing and brand, and also provides me with content to share with you guys. AKA: Promotion for other companies.
Yes. I get invited to enjoy events in the hopes of bringing exposure to other companies and brands. Eh. It’s not such a hard life after all. Although I was interested in mingling with the Bachelorette and host of Love it or List it, Jillian Harris, I was more excited about the opportunity I could provide for my baby cousin.
Okay, so she isn’t a baby anymore and is nearing the age of being legal everywhere, but she’s still my baby. Jessica is in school pursuing her passion for Interior Design. What a perfect place to bring her to introduce her into the industry, give her knowledge and mingle with new people! After all, it’s about who you know just as much as it is what you can do. So, off to Toronto we went.
The Interior Design Show was packed with some of the coolest interior decor you could ever imagine. However, it provided even more opportunities to meet with people that can help you find your place within the industry, and better yet – to tear it up.
So, my life advice for everyone out there!
Take opportunities by the balls!
Get out of your shell, and start exploring life in a different way. Say hi and introduce yourself to all kinds of new people. You never know what will come of it.
Here’s a little look at the entire day! xo
