Interview with Sam Mayfair Tik Tok (@sam.mayfair)


Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I’ve always been interested in history and traveling, and I feel lucky enough to be able to travel as often as I do, so I decided to share these experiences with the world, and people seem to like it!
Can you share the most exciting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
My first viral video was an accident, I was trying to take a photo but made a video instead but posted it anyway, and it instantly went viral with 5M views.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
Make content you would like to see and just be yourself. Be courageous—Challenge orthodoxy. Stand up for what you believe in. Be sure you have a good story to tell when you are in your rocking chair talking to your grandchildren many years from now.
None of us can 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?
Although I don’t know him personally, I was inspired by a particular YouTube Vlogger known as bold and bankrupt. He is way more successful than I am, but one can only hope to reach such levels in the social media world.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I want to think so; my goal has always been to teach and inspire. If I can teach one person one new thing a day, I’m a happy man.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
You don’t need to spend much to get started creating videos of content; just talk about when you know In the best way you can.
