Interview with Angelica Pascoe

Interview with Angelica Pascoe

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

My close friends who I grew up with mostly influenced me to get into social media and it excited me. One of my best friends from my hometown is a huge public figure and successful magazine editor, she showed me how to create eye-catching content for fun, and following her, I started to post for the first time when I was 19!

But, as I started taking this more seriously, I’ve realized social media is such a unique bonding platform, along with photography, art, and the ability to express ourselves through positive artistic outlets.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?

I started writing a book online and I had no idea it would amass over 800,000 reads!

I used to write only for fun, and then one day I was just inspired to put ‘Sliver Bruiser’ out there. Nothing had happened to influence the story; the idea just hit me when I was on a vacation in Miami.

It happens.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

I’ve preached that “working for the weekend” can cause a bad habit of longing for the weekend. You go through “the motions” instead of being truly engaged and over time, this leads to cynicism, exhaustion, and sometimes poor performance.

The tips I’d recommend are:

  • Look at the deeper impact of what you do every day and how your work makes life better for other people.
  • Take control, give to others, and exercise regularly.
  • Monitor your thoughts and practice positive thinking.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

Someone I’m particularly grateful towards is basically everyone! I’ve been traveling all over the world and learned my fair share of lessons along the way from the people I have met simply by doing what I loved best following my instincts while allowing various business opportunities to take me down the new roads.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

I have participated in and hosted local and international fundraisers that have benefited communities that need financial assistance. My most present and recent fundraising project is Supporting Ukraine With CARE hosted by Impact.

Do you have a favourite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?

Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

This is an old and popular adage but a good one that applies through all aspects of life how to treat colleagues, staff, associates, other partners, the other side, clients, family, friends, strangers.

Don’t necessarily expect someone to give something you would never give, of course taking into account the relative positions of the parties and other context.
