We had the good fortune of connecting with Amber Johnson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Amber, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Risk-taking is something that I didn’t truly know the meaning of until college. I’m normally a very shy and quiet person, so putting myself out there and getting out of my comfort zone was something that I had to force myself to do. As time went on, I continued to take risks. I jumped in headfirst with creating a podcast and becoming a content creator (Something I never saw for myself). Those were scary moves, but I’m happy I made them. You have to trust yourself and God and have faith that your moves will be beneficial in the future.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Beauty, Lifestyle and creativity are my passions, and content creation is what I fell in love doing.

I started taking content creation seriously in mid-2021. I always wanted to explore content creation but didn’t really have the confidence. I’m still learning the ropes when it comes to the formulation of a video/photo idea, setting up for the shots, editing, and different things like that.

Was it easy? No, Nothing in this field was easy. Putting yourself out there can be mentally challenging, especially if you’re an introvert like me. The majority of my challenges from being a creator come first from my mind. It’s so easy to convince yourself not to post something because you’re overthinking. As a creator, you’re scared of how the world is going to perceive you (social media can be mean sometimes). But I focus more on the good than the bad. The daily challenge is to get out of your own head and trust yourself.

When it comes to lesson I have learned along the way, I have learned several. The most important being consistency will take you far in life. When your starting a new project or a new venture, you have to be consistent. You’re not going to blow up over night. you have to build and grow. sooner or later people will find you and your work will get noticed. but while you are growing and building enjoy the journey. Take the time to really enjoy what you’re creating and allow your ideas to blossom.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?

– Ponce city market

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
First off, thank God for blessing me with my parents and my brother. The older I get, our bond just grows tighter and tighter. They have loved and supported me through my ups and my downs. They have imparted wisdom that I will probably carry with me forever. I would say the same thing for my brother and my sister-in-law. They’ve been very supportive as well and have always let me know if I needed them, they would be there.

I also want to give a shoutout to my friend Nadia. She’s been so supportive from day #1. It’s essential to have friends who will always stand by you and encourage you when you need them.
