Adam: What is something about you that the many people who follow you don’t know?
Jess: One thing is that I am beyond dedicated to my God. I rely heavily on his word daily. If you don’t know yet God Rocks!
Adam: How did you become an influencer? What’s the inside story?
Jess: I just started putting videos out and waiting for the love. Story is I wanted to be my own BOSS!
Adam: What advice do you have for those interested in working with influencers? How do you decide who to work with?
Jess: Honestly, I try not to work with any other influencers. That’s no disrespect; I find it very hard to be original these days which is why I stay to myself and produce my own content without the help of others or collaborations.
Adam: What advice do you have for those interested in becoming influencers?
Jess: Listen and listen carefully. Even read between the lines. The need for originality is at an all-time high. These days there are more trend followers than trend setters. Be yourself and stand out. Do the unthinkable… sometimes that even means don’t think, just do.
Adam: What is the biggest misconception about the influencer world and life as an influencer?
Jess: “We have it all figured out” We’re not perfect. A lot of people have tried to make me a role model for their children. That, I am not. I curse heavily, I talk about sex and I talk about people. I should not be a role model for YOUR child; YOU should be a role model for your child.
Adam: What has being an influencer taught you about branding and marketing?
Jess: REPETITION & REPUTATION. When you gain the attention of millions and millions of people it’s easy to persuade and influence them; I use that advantage for my greater good; constantly letting them know who I am, Comedian Jess Hilarious. Be careful to not abuse your power though.
Adam: What are your hobbies and how have they shaped you?
Jess: In the beginning I considered making videos hobby, but I have grown to be so much more than that, just a girl who made videos. Look at me now!
Adam: Who have been the biggest influencers in your life and how do you pay it forward?
Jess: Martin Lawrence & Chris Tucker! I feel as if I am the female version of them both. Not to mention I look exactly like Chris Tucker. Lol
I have been able to emulate their talent of making the people laugh! I am proud to have been able to grow up and watch comedic geniuses.
