#2 Zoella - Talking Internet Fame & Being Your Own Boss
Zoe Sugg AKA Zoella is one of the most famous YouTubers on the Internet. She is a fascinating 26-year-old #girlboss running her own online empire pretty much from her bedroom. She launched her YouTube channel back in 2009 and started connecting with other people and uploading "hauls" for anyone who might want to watch it. Fast-forward seven years later and she has over 10 million subscribers, two best-selling books under her belt and her own range of beauty products in Superdrug, sung on the Band Aid 30 single, and has a LOT of awards. We chatted at her Brighton home about all sorts of things: work, life, switching off, working for yourself and busting the myth of what a "proper job" is. Every time I speak to her I find her an inspiring, interesting and incredibly incredibly down-to-earth person. Hope you enjoy!
