Interview with Alyssa Eckstein (@thealyssaway)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I am a social media influencer, and I think it will help me get more recognition and be more successful in the future. I always love making videos and making them more innovative with my techniques.
Can you share the most exciting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
My exciting story is that I started TikTok as a creator, and this year, I hit 2 Million followers; this is not enough. I also got 43 million views in only a few months.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
People don’t realize how big TikTok is and what successful career paths it can provide. It’s very time-consuming and requires a lot of time and effort constantly come up with new video ideas as a content creator. You have to be consistent and keep uploading quality content to become successful.
None of us can achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person whom you are grateful for who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
There isn’t anyone in particular, but I was inspired by some of the videos I saw on TikTok and said to myself, “I can do that” remaking videos and putting my spin on them, and making relatable content is what does well for me as if people have something to relate to they are going to like it and interact with the content.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I’ve been involved with numerous charities and causes in more than ten countries.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
If you love doing something and want to succeed, never give up! People said I couldn’t do what I do now as a video creator/social media influencer and made fun of me at first, but now look, they’re now fans and trying to do precisely what I am doing with TikTok becoming the most popular app at this current moment.
How can our readers follow you on social media?

Anything specific you’d like to have mentioned in the article?
Nothing in particular.
