RECORDED IN AUSTIN, TEXAS, WE GO BEYOND AND BACK WITH
STORYTELLER EVELYN FROM THE INTERNETS
Storyteller Evelyn Ngugi, aka Evelyn From The Internets, and I spoke at her co-working space in Austin, Texas. Evelyn is a writer, speaker, performer and humorist with 10 years of videos she's shared on her YouTube channel, garnering more than 13 million views and 200K subscribers (Beyoncé is a fan!). We talked about the pros and cons of sharing your work online, how to separate yourself from your work, how learning new skills is a good way to combat inevitable self-doubt, and how we're comforted to know that all creatives grapple with similar questions.
