Tarini Shah Talks About How She Leveraged TikTok To Become A Social Media Influencer



I recently had the brilliant opportunity to have a conversation with Tarini Shah. Tarini is a TikToker & Social Media Influencer who stands apart from most of the other creators because of her content! The one thing about her content that I personally like a lot is its true & honest nature. She has over 100k followers and more than 5M likes on TikTok. on the platform. check out the conversatiion we had!

1. Who is Tarini Shah in real life?

I am an upcoming influencer trying my best to bring a change. I am currently located in Mumbai and as a MumbaiKar I am totally addicted to the mouthwatering street food. I have always loved creating content  but just like any other teenager I can be a huge procrastinator. I am a complete extrovert and a social butterfly, connecting with people and learning from their stories is something I love and thus would someday be glad to have my own talk show.

2. Why did you decide to start creating content on TikTok? (Tarini Shah)

Three years ago listening to music and dancing around was a way to escape from my school work and then I came across ‘’ where people were doing exactly that. I loved making videos on but eventually due to school work I left the app until 2019 when I started making tiktoks. I became absolutely obsessed with the app and continued creating content once in a while for fun. I was just creating random content until April 2020 when I put out some videos giving advice to people through my personal experiences and started gaining huge amount of follower soon I realized that I was helping people through the same and that is when I started taking tiktok seriously and created my own hash tag called #advicebyt which has more than 15M views and now I have more that 110k followers and I am so grateful that I have a platform to help people out.

3. Your content is different from most of the other popular forms of content on TikTok. How do you think that helps your brand identity? (Tarini Shah)

I have two sisters who have helped me out with a lot of things and I grew up with a loving family but I know that there are many people who go through their teenage problems alone and it can be very difficult when you don’t know what to do and at this point just to know that you aren’t the only one who is going through this helps. When I started posting advice videos people started talking about how the same things are happening to them and how my videos were helping them. There were many people who used my comment section as a safe space to talk about their problems and people who had gone through the same thing were replying to the comments and helping them out. As for my brand identity on tiktok I just want people to know that no matter what content I might post in the future my comment section will always be a safe space and that whenever they need to talk I am always there

4. What problems did you face during your journey?

Tiktok wasn’t always an acceptable platform to make content on. It was tagged as a ‘cringe’ app and that people didn’t make quality content on the app. I partially agree and disagree with the same. While there is some cringe worthy content on the app there are also many creators making noteworthy content. When I started off on tiktok I had people always teasing me for being on the app and making me feel like I should be ashamed of the same but as I grew I realized that people will always have their opinions on everything that you do but how they affect you is your choice. Sometimes becoming the laughing stock for my friends did affect me and being in the eye of so many people receiving hate was inevitable but I was soon told that I can’t please everyone and that “the ones who love you will always love you and the ones who hate will soon get tired when they realize it doesn’t affect you”

5. What would you say to someone who is just starting out?

For anyone who is starting out create content that makes you happy. Don’t make content for the sole purpose for receiving ‘likes’ or ‘fame’ because all that won’t matter in the long run what truly will matter is whether you were happy and having fun. Another important thing is to be proud of the content you create don’t let anyone else’s opinion have a control over what you do. Keep doing what you are doing and people who love that will follow you and encourage you to keep moving ahead.

6. Is there something you’d like to say to our readers?

If you are reading this you came here to know my story and here’s what I have learnt. Many people on social media will not share the sad parts or about the nights they were crying alone in their bedroom but they are human and they aren’t always perfect no matter how famous they might be thus what I preach is that unless you don’t have something good to say then don’t say anything at all and always spread love because sometimes you don’t know their story, you won’t have any idea about what the other person has gone through.

7. Is there something you’d like to say to Nwsppr?

Thank you so much for this opportunity to share my story and for letting creators share their story through your platform

Learn How Innovative Barber Jacob Joseph Is Dominating The Haircut Industry!



Jacob Joseph

Jacob Joseph is a Magna Cum Laude Alumni with a degree in Accounting who followed his dreams of becoming a barber. In pursuit of his dreams, Jacob attended an apprenticeship program with “Barber Club” and that was when things changed for the better. 

Today, he is a licensed barber and he has achieved unprecedented success with his Instagram platform. Jacob is one of the only few barbers in the industry who has a follower base of over 100,000 on Instagram. 

In this article, we will discuss the passion behind Jacob’s dreams; the success he attained, and some of the steps he took to ensure that he overcame challenges thrown at him. 

Overcoming Challenges 

Like many business owners, Jacob also had a fair share of challenges. Challenges are not uncommon with business owners and businesses, without them, these individuals and they’re businesses won’t grow.  

Pursuing his dream of becoming a barber proved to be a roadblock to him. In order to overcome these challenges, Jacob surrounded himself with people who were successful. These people, their actions, and habits motivated Jacob to become the man he is today.

“My mentors taught me that the best way to deal with challenges as an entrepreneur is by taking them head-on as they come.” – Jacob Shares

Outstanding skills 

Jacob Joseph believes that his determination helped his success. “I always put my faith and trust in God. He has always blessed me in my life and I continue to give gratitude and thanks to Him”. He said.  

Jacob also added that persistence and discipline are important to achieve your goal.

Drawing Inspiration & Upholding Healthy Practices

Jacob reveals that he has two main drivers which push me to succeed. 

The first would be his parents who were immigrants from the middle east and started a whole new life in this country.  As teenagers, they were able to build up a successful hair salon from scratch to provide for their family. 

Their hard work and tenacity are what pushes him to become as successful as he possibly can in order to give his family and himself the financial freedom that they want. 

Another inspiration that pushes him to be at the top of his game is the mindset of not settling. He has made it a statue not to be another barber in the game. Jacob wants to set a standard in my industry. Someone that other barbers can look up to, someone his colleagues can depend on. “I don’t like to be average. I know I have more to offer.” -Jacob says.

God has blessed us and given all of us special skills and talents to show the world! I want to make sure that I can give back to Him!”

Jacob further told us that in order to uphold healthy practices you have to hold yourself accountable for every action you take.  Burnouts are inevitable for human beings. The best way to deal with burnouts is to take as much rest as possible in order to recharge. 

Significant Achievements 

Prior to graduating from college, Jacob developed a passion for cutting hair and aspired to achieve his goal. Today, Jacob is a licensed barber and in less than a year he has grown his Instagram account from less than a thousand followers to more than 100k followers where he publicly displays his skills and has helped him build a solid digital footprint. 

This growth has opened doors to many sponsorships with different companies including Gammaplusna. 

Words of Advice 

Here are some words of advice from Jacob himself for people striving to attain success in any field;

“Words of advice I can give is that you are your biggest advocate or enemy. 

Your mindset will dictate your future. Make your thoughts work in your favor. 

Keeping a positive outlook in the face of adversity is difficult, but the results of that positive mindset will take you where you want to go in life. 

Don’t dwell on the setbacks, plan for the triumphs. I am no better than you or the next person. 

I only compete with myself and make sure that I grow spiritually, mentally, and physically. 

Once you stop worrying and caring about others is when you will be able to do whatever you love, which will lead you to live the life of your dreams!”

Justin Tse On Becoming A Successful Entrepreneur & Content Creator




justin tse

Justin Tse is a massively successful Tech Content Creator, Entrepreneur & Podcaster. He makes quality tech & lifestyle videos on YouTube and has achieved over 560k+ subscribers. He co-owns a clothing company called Dangerfield with Alexx Davies & has a podcast called FEATURE where he talks about Business, Tech, Lifestyle, Travel, and gets into conversations with other creators! Justin was kind enough to take time out of his schedule to talk to us about his journey! Read on-

1. Who is Justin Tse in real life?

I don’t know.  Almost everything I do is some form of work.  Between planning, filming, and editing videos for my channel, building up the Feature podcast, or working on the clothing company I co-own,  Dangerfield… I stay pretty busy.

justin tse feature podcast

2. What sparked your love for Entrepreneurship and Filmmaking?

When I was a kid I wanted to find a way to make money.  I loved selling stuff, and when I tried to sell one device I learned more about YouTube and its possible revenue streams.  After learning more about tech, I decided to try and make some videos.  Over time, I began improving my filming and diversified the style of videos I upload.  Such as the cinematic travel videos and more.  The skills and equipment could also be seen as a competitive advantage.

3. What are your key takeaways running a successful Tech YouTube channel? (JUSTIN TSE)

My takeaways are that running a YouTube channel is a lot more work than people think.  For me, it’s a media company, and to do this full time, it requires a full commitment and adaptation of lifestyle to maintain and grow a channel.  Especially when you factor in traveling in a normal year, and making content it becomes difficult to manage.  Therefore, staying organized and using a schedule is extremely important.  A YouTube channel is a small business, for the first 9 years I did all the filming, editing, emailing, negotiating, selling, and accounting. 

4. You recently co-founded and launched “Dangerfield”, what problems did you face before launching it? 

Some issues I faced were that the co-owner and I sometimes weren’t in complete agreement over aspects that are important to a brand’s identity.  For example, choosing the style and theme should not be rushed, it took time to decide.  In addition to that, picking the target audience and the content strategy to go along with it is important and we felt we had to be confident in our strategy prior to launch.

5. What was your inspiration behind starting the “Feature” podcast & what do you wish to achieve as a Podcaster & content creator?

The podcast is a project I have always wanted to start.  The free-flowing unscripted conversation is something I am not usually able to do on my YouTube channel so this felt like a good platform to post.  I’m able to naturally discuss subjects I enjoy talking about, which includes F1, business, travel, and more.  Previously, starting new projects has been tough to implement especially because they likely are not profitable to start, but with the quarantine that had occurred for so long, I figured it’d be a good time to start.  Especially since I have thought about it for a long time now.  I had no expectations for it and its primarily for fun.  Meanwhile, my personal channel has expectations and deliverables that must be reached.  As a content creator, I want to create a sustainable, growing business that can last for years to come, and in the future, I’d like to have the resources to expand into other industries I’m passionate about while using the tools and resources I have acquired over my time.

6. Do you think an educational qualification is necessary to succeed in life? 

No, I don’t feel its necessary to always get post-secondary education to succeed.  Although it can be very helpful and lead to great success, it’s not always needed.  I say this because if someone feels they already know what they’d like to do in life, and it’s something they feel they already have the resources continuing in school doesn’t always make sense for that individual.  I only dropped out because I had a steady income and I knew I could make a career out of YouTube for a while.  I’m not an advocate for people sitting around hoping for success, you have to make it happen for yourself.

7. What would you say to someone who is just starting out?

Be prepared to give up everything if you are truly dedicated and have aspirations to grow constantly turning YouTube into a full-time job.  Also start young, it often gives you more flexibility to take risks and learn from mistakes with little consequences.  Use the resources you have available, and don’t feel the need to have the best equipment to succeed.  The process of saving up for your first camera alone will teach you a lot. 

8. Is there something you’d like to say to our readers?

Don’t give up, if you’re willing to put every second you have to work on something, then you probably picked the right thing.
