- Reach out to find mentors and build connections within the industry to avoid feeling alone and to learn from others' experiences. Community support can help navigate challenges more smoothly than trying to go it alone.
- Consistency is super important when starting out as an online content creator, even if the content doesn't feel perfect yet
- Find your niche. And when you find your niche, find another niche. The money is your niche.
- Authenticity is important, and it's okay to discuss topics that some may find taboo as long as it helps others feel comfortable with sexuality.

Navigating finances, taxes, and business structures can present unique challenges that accountants familiar with these industries would be best equipped to advise on. Seeking out accountants with relevant experience or a willingness to understand these fields could help manage your business needs more smoothly.
