“I’m very honest with brands up front to let them know that I have to be myself and I have to do storytelling captions because people would want to work with me and convert on any products when they feel that they’re invested in it.”

— Taryn Newton 

“I also had to get consistent because a lot of times people like the idea of myself included, where I wanted to be this blogger, successful blogger, but I wasn’t really putting the time in and I wasn’t doing everything I needed to do in order to have a successful blog.”

— Taryn Newton

“When I applied that pitch foundation, your elevator pitch, I was getting responses from brands, and that was my biggest thing. Even when they weren’t always yeses, I was getting them to at least notice me and say, even if it’s not right now, it’s later.”

— Taryn Newton
