I’m trying out a new series, where I compile all the happenings in the past week that can help you grow in the topics of:
- Content creation
- Personal Finance
The 1-Sided Deal
Creators beware, as you grow your content career, it’s a milestone to get approached by brands for a collab.
But I want you to be careful of predatory brands who want to take advantage of new & naive Creators.
They want you to do all their dirty work while paying you peanuts.
Here’s an example👇
I politely replied that the deal is one-sided & showed them my rate card to produce a TikTok video in 2 scenarios:
- I create 1 video about their product on my channels – $XX
- I create 1 video & they can do whatever they want like run ads & claim their content as their own (full rights) – $XXXX
They replied with ‘OK’ and disappeared.
Moral of the Story: There are plenty of brands who want to take you for a ride because they know you’re new. Be careful & don’t be afraid to give them your rates or walk away from a bad deal.

Moral of the Story: It may seem like a shot in the dark, but I believe the more we voice out that we want a city designed for pedestrians & not for cars, sooner or later, developers & the government may take notice to create the change.

✅ Stop being ignored & network with influential people
✅ Start earning extra income (affiliate, sponsorships, etc).
