“Sometimes I get help from my family, like the time I decided to sell merch and need help packaging the product. Other than that though everything you see online is me.”

“The word Jayus is an Indonesian word for “something so unfunny you can’t help but laugh” or “someone who tries too hard to be funny”. While I was looking for a name online that was short and easy to remember I came across this and thought that it fit my personality well.”

“My parents, after noticing how much I liked to be in front of the family’s home video camera, bought me my own video camera. My little sisters and I would use this to make funny skits to show our parents.”

“The main reason why I decided to pursue content creation as a full-time job was when I was fired from my sales job at Best Buy.”

“There is a quote that my dad has always said for years and even had written above our garage door when I was a kid. “Much is never dared because it seems hard, much seems hard because it is never dared “.”

“The main thing that drives me to succeed and keeps me motivated day today is my younger sibling. I have 11 siblings in total, 9 of which are younger than me. I am the oldest sister so I feel like it’s necessary for me to do something big and to be a role model for them.”

“I fear failure. I’m afraid that this slightly longer “15 minutes of fame” will go away and I won’t have any control over it.”

“I love making content, so I don’t think I’d ever stop doing that, but making content is a lot more fun when you have an audience watching.”

“For someone that wants to get into content creation the best advice that I could give you is to make yourself stand out from everyone else.”

“Find a niche and make it yours. There are millions of people trying to make it big, but they’re never going to get there doing the same things that have already been done before.”
