Lisa Schwartz: the Top 5 Things I've Learned from Being a YouTuber

4You Can't Hide

“I didn’t really realize how public my life would become. I just assumed I’d make funny videos and call it a day. But quickly I found out that the audience demands more. A connection that required me to open up about my life, share my 'secrets'. The biggest stars on YouTube became such because their audience could identify with them. The “icon” looks right into camera, speaks with honesty, and instantly makes you feel like their friend. So this is what I set out to do. I lead by example, and quickly my family, friends, even relationship was out in the open. When I meet fans on the street, I am always surprised by their ability to know where I was coming from, or who I was with. Then I remember, I just updated my social media. Of course they know. But the concept that someone actually reads my posts, sees my pictures, or even cares, is still mind blowing. And sometimes overwhelming. But I continue to do it, in hopes that I can somehow connect with people all over the world. That maybe they’ll find something poignant from what I said, to hold on to, to make a difference. And because of that, I am so happy to share. Even if that means updating the tweens on what my boyfriend and I do on an hourly basis. Their fascination never ceases to amaze me. And for the record, most the time we are eating frozen yogurt and watching 'Cupcake Wars'.”
“Good s#!t is happening. And it’s because people are watching this material that came from the heart. Not from a need to make money. Not from a need for fame. Material that comes from a need to make people laugh. YouTube has taught me, if you follow your passion, and work hard, a girl from Tarzana who sits in front of her camera cracking fart jokes may just end up working with Matt Damon.”
