Vanessa Wants To Know

Freelance Life During COVID-19 Featuring @alyssainthecity, @meghannguy & @tylerjoe

Vanessa sits down with 3 of her favourite NYC based Creatives (an influencer, a makeup artist, & fashion photographer) to discuss what it means to be a millennial working the gig economy during lockdown. Even if you may be familiar with Alyssa Coscarelli, Meghan Nguy or Tyler Joe’s work, expect the unexpected from this very candid conversation. Some things we cover:

• The quick pivot each guest made to meet the new conditions and environment of operating in the digital space

• How the scrappiness and ingenuity inherent to all freelancers have helped all 3 guests navigate the space, while still getting ‘work’

• Navigating the murky waters of working with brands during COVID 

• Refinding the Joy in making stuff in the name of creativity vs commerce: the unexpected outcome of being home quarantined

• TIK TOK vs Instagram, paid content vs unpaid ‘cross pollination’, authenticity vs being another trend

• PLUS: tips/coping methods (hint: lots of gospel music LOL)
