Interview with Krikor [email protected]_theshape
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
My daughter is actually responsible. She showed me a few videos and I told her I could that. She laughed and said I couldn’t. Bless her heart. Well, here I am, an older woman with a cellphone and no shame.
Can you share the most interest in exciting happened to you since you started doing this?
Since I started doing TikTok, the most interesting or surprising thing that has happened was when someone recognized me standing in line at the store. There I was, no makeup and looking like something the dog had dragged in. Someone tapped me on the shoulder and asked if i was Pepper Lynne. I was just so shocked and it goes to show that on the days you look your worst, someone always sees you.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
I believe the key is to pace yourself and only allow so many hours a day to interact. It can become very overwhelming to try and keep up with likes and comments that followers leave. I do my best to try and acknowledge them all.
None of us can succeed 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?
Oh that’s easy. @rtoyota45 has helped me so much with her TikTok tutorials and advice since I started. Her tutorials cover everything you could ever want to know or need to be successful on TikTok. I honestly can’t thank her enough.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I don’t know about goodness to the world but I just hope my videos can bring a smile to people or brighten their days. Sometimes all it takes is hearing an old song that instantly takes you back to another time and place and if I can do that for even one person, it’s worth it. TikTok can be its own brand of therapy for a lot of people.
Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
My favorite quote is, “It is what it is.” It’s been my experience that 98% of the time, that’s all it is and we need to see it as that. I’ve always looked at a situation or problem, and if there’s anything at all that I can do to either help or change it, I will. If not, I see it for what it is and move on. Worrying about something we cannot change doesn’t help the outcome or ourselves.
