10. Emily Carlo: @whatsemilydoing, Rebranding, and Reassessing
Never Work A Day with Kelly Gibney
Emily joins Kelly on today's episode to talk about how she rebranded the very popular foodie instagram, @missnewfoodie, to a more fashion and lifestyle centered account, @whatsemilydoing. Emily talks about how quitting her full-time job to pursue influencing, experimenting with a new account, and reassessing the influencer-life after a few months. Emily and Kelly also talk about how social media is weird, how sometimes you just have to give things a shot, and much more.

Living and dating in NYC with influencer Emily Carlo
Cure your Sunday scaries with me and 24-year-old influencer Emily Carlo (@WhatsEmilyDoing) as we get real about living and dating in New York City in your 20s. I took my own advice from EP 1 and slid into Emily’s DMs to get her on the pod…and it worked! We chat about our NYE plans and outfits (5:13), reminisce on the struggles that come with using a fake ID (5:45) and dive into Emily’s city life that began 6 years ago when she studied at NYU (10:00). At the time, her food Instagram account went viral and peaked at 120k followers (11:20). But, when she shifted from foodie to fashionista, she lost followers and received backlash (14:15). Despite the decrease to 88.4k followers, she courageously quit her stable job to pursue Instagram influencing full time in May 2019. She gives us the lowdown on what being an influencer really entails (16:10), and why she decided against partnering with a vibrator brand (19:00). We laugh over dating app stories (32:15), agreed-upon texting rules (35:00) and unsolicited dick pics (36:05). Oh, and I share the distinguished DM that caught Tyler Cameron’s roommate’s attention (44:20). From spilling secrets to spot-on selfies (19:30) to discussing dating do’s and don’ts (24:30, 50:20), Emily and I cover it all in an episode you won’t want to miss. Grab your girls, a mimosa (but hold the OJ) and enjoy! Follow along @GirlGazePod & @TaylerBradford.
