Sample Session with a very popular Social Media Influencer.
My real name is Derrick Javan Hoard and I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and I also social media influencer mental health coach!
Many people are hoping to become social media influencers. So many people have so many guides and plans on how to become a social media influencer, but no one tells you how to take care of your mental health once you get there.
I made a video when Kobe Bryant died and proceeded to be harassed by individuals I had never even heard of before! I am so thankful that I had friends and family to lean on, but I was not ready to the type of interactions I had with people. I really wish I had someone coach me through the more difficult parts. On top of that, I gained more subscribers than what I was ready for at the time. I now feel a sense of responsibility for them.
Most people become influencers not just to "influence", but because they themselves come from a family where they did not have much influence. They are the "only-Childs", the "problem-kids", or the ones who were "weird'. Often people become social media influencers because they want to build and grow a community. However, growing this community often involves interacting with parts of the internet that are less than savory.
In order to be a successful social media influencer you need to know how to be assertive, set boundaries, and you must know who you are and be confident in your decision making. I am sure that there are many people who have done things that they otherwise would not had they been show how to stand fast in their convictions, and not be bullied by their audience.
