A Hobby Turned Into A Passion: The Corporate History Of Model and Content Creator Chanel Uzi

Finding what you’re passionate about can be much simpler than anyone imagines. The challenge is to work for it, to the point where it becomes real professional and personal progress. In many cases, the passion for a hobby ends up becoming the path to success. However, only those who have the determination to dedicate themselves with an effort to do what they like are able to see results. This is the case of Chanel Uzi.

The young model and creator of content for social networks, has stood out in the digital environment for more than just her beauty. The original, creative, and unique way in which she has developed the management of her accounts, allows her to enjoy great recognition today. However, for her, success is still a long way off.

Chanel started in the world of modeling and content creation as a secondary hobby. Along with her friends, she photographed various scenarios and then shared them in her networks, without imagining that, at some point, this would be her dream job.

Her love for streetwear and Hip Hop culture led her into the world of men’s clothing design. An area, where she was not taken very seriously because she was surrounded by men most of the time. However, after 8 years, she decided to start her own way, took up modeling again, and shared her photos on her Instagram account.

She was pleasantly surprised by the responsiveness of its content. After a while, she had gathered a lot of likes. Today, Chanel has over a million followers on Instagram and has migrated to other platforms where she also has a strong presence.

Treat It Like A Job

Although at first, this represented a hobby for Chanel. From the moment she noticed the potential of the project she was creating and her power to make it happen, she decided to dedicate herself completely.

Despite the fact that for many it was not profitable, and even it was not a real job, she visualized something else. Therefore, she never lost her perspective and has successfully achieved her goals.

Seeing what she was doing, believing in it, and working with responsibility, commitment, and effort, is what will determine how far you go in your goals.

Stay Motivated

Chanel points out that it is not always easy. Creating your own content and being a model is demanding and exhausting. However, she always finds a way to keep herself constantly motivated.

When she feels unmotivated, she remembers why she is still doing what she does. Firstly, the passion in every aspect of her work and secondly, being able to support herself and her family with the fruit of her efforts.

“These reasons give me the power to be able to continue. Sharing my success with those I love and proving that I can, is motivation enough.”

She adds that every person has a point of motivation, just keep it always present to continue even in the days that seem more difficult.  

The Beginnings Will Always Be Difficult

As for many businessmen, businesswomen, and entrepreneurs, Chanel’s beginnings were complex. In principle for not having enough guidance to carry out her plans properly.

However, she assures that this experience gave her even more impetus to move forward. Trusting in herself, in what she could achieve, and working alone in the creation of her whole process is what makes her feel much more proud.

She says that being a model on Instagram or OnlyFans has not been an easy process for her. However, she has learned from each of the phases she has to work on and uses her steps to correct the necessary aspects that allow her to keep moving forward.

Chanel has had the opportunity to share with several brands thanks to her growth in social networks. It is projected to progress even more by working for it. However, she emphasizes that she doesn’t like to talk about her aspirations in-depth, but to focus on the present moment, continuing to create content is the most effective way for her to move forward.
