Advice To My Younger Self (video included)

I was inspired to do this post by a group of amazing female YouTubers who collaborated together to do these type of videos together. I thought it was a wonderful idea and I wanted to do something similar as well. I’ll have the channels of the ladies involved in that collaboration linked at the end of this post as well as my own video of the same subject. So if I could go back in time and give myself some advice it will be a LOT of stuff.
