Hi, my name is Eljammi and I’m a workaholic.
It’s that time where for once I do not want to write about beauty or give a review or post my outfit.
I just honestly want to open up about my journey and take you more into details , how it really is – WORKING as a Blogger , being in the industry and all that jazz!
Most of you must know , that I have started my media journey about 5 years ago by becoming a Fashion Editor Assistant in one of the publishing magazines in Dubai. After a while , I moved to becoming a business owner ( that was when I turned 19 years old , YES 19 Years old!!) , so I opened a brand then moved to blogging/vlogging but it is all taking me back to becoming a business owner.
Now being a blogger isn’t easy , let me tell you . 80% of you want to become a social media start cuz of 1. Freebies 2. Fame , and I have never advised or followed these reasons. DO IT OUT OF PASSION!
One day I have sat down on my sofa , looking pretty shitty ( yes I enjoy that sometimes , cuz 95% of my time I’m fully glammed up) and asked myself ‘Is this what I wanna do?’ , ‘Do I wanna spend time running in an endless race for the brands to notice me or for people to follow me and love?’
And I realised that this is where I’m starting of having a meltdown , I took a deep breath and remembered that I’m doing this out of passion not money , I enjoy engaging with people from different countries and cultures and being able to make an actual difference with my advice or tutorials and not just be ‘that another blogger’ or ‘that face-tune girl’ . So it goes get tough , and especially with my crazy personality – I mean look , I’m funny as hell but demanding and aggressive ( when I want something , when its my business) like there’s no tomorrow ! Being a blogger was always pretty tough for me , because I was that Azeri girl with a very loud voice and comes off as pretty tough or cold faced ( I guess that USSR part always plays a role ) – ( such a stereotype) , but I have never given up or gave a shit about what people think and say – and some started loving me for this and some didn’t .
I’m not at a quarter of where I want to be , so I never relaxed – I run my blog , my youtube channel , constant filming for my instagram , my store ( http://www.glamjamstore.com ) and now my new venture which is GlamJam Beauty Academy that is opening on 17th of September (YOU BETTER PRE-REGISTER http://www.glamjambeautyacademy.com ) and let me tell you it sounds like WOAAAAHH and it is one big freaking WHOAAAAAAAAAH , but I love it .
So worth it or not , figure out why do you wanna do whatever you wanna do? What is your back up message? How you gonna make a difference? What is your impact? and then see , don’t be selfish and do it out of useless reasons .
To be continued….
