Tea Time with BeautyLifeGeek: My Experience With Maker Studios

I wanted to share my horrible/nightmare experience with Maker Studios Network, as well as the important lesson I learned from my experience. I signed with Maker Studios in 2013; during the hype and mist of everyone trying to become part of an MCN (Multi-Channel Network) along with a partnership with YouTube.

Being a member of an MCN meant channel growth, more sponsorships, and better financial opportunities. At least that's what they promised when Maker contacted me to join their network. My video is not intended to bash anyone or Maker Studios. I wanted to share my story, and my journey after being released from Maker.

Here are some points of the lessons I wish I learned from my experience with Maker:

  • Read the contract carefully- If you are not sure, look it over with a professional lawyer
  • If you don't feel comfortable with their pitch or experience, it's okay to walk away
  • Trust yourself when deciding to join any brand deal or MCN
  • You don't have to join to a network, there is no requirement. It's better to work for yourself than trust your hard work in the care of people you don't know

Are you or did you join an MCN Network? share your experince in the comments section. Thanks for watching! Be Beautiful & Geeky :)

Tea Time with BeautyLifeGeek: #HerVoiceIsMyVoice

Happy International Women's Day beauties and geeks. I hope all of you are having a great day, as well as enjoying this important day. Get out there and embrace your fellow sister.

I wanted to share my influence on International Women's Day: Women who participate in the women's march and suffrage movement. These amazing women influence others to go out and speak up for your rights as a woman. Not just for women's rights, but for rights for everyone- from health to social. 

I believe it is important to come together and teach others to speak up against social injustice. We are all superheroes at heart; it's time to let our powers shine through. Who is your greatest influence? let me know in the comments section.

Yes, I am incorporating minimalist practices into my skincare and beauty routines. I've always believed that less is more; the fewer products applied to your skin, the more healthy benefits will be visible. This is my favorite "on-the-go" skincare routine using my most frequent Derma-E products.

Here are the Derma-E natural skincare products featured in my routine:

Derma-E Microdermabrasion Scrub
