We had the good fortune of connecting with Whitney and Ryann Frink and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Whitney and Ryann, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Authenticity is the short answer. The longer one is that (IF we are considered a “success”) when we set out to create something uniquely our own, that we wanted to build from the ground up as a sister duo, the only thing we really knew was that we would be as genuinely ourselves as possible. That’s why our Youtube channel name started out as “Candid as a Mother” (we are now Whit and Ry). Being able to relate to someone else is helpful for anyone — whether that be through parenting challenges, navigating womanhood, or laughing at the same moments on a favorite TV show — and we think it can be both comforting and inspiring to share ourselves with people. We also love to laugh and have found that many people share our dry and ridiculous sense of humor!
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Our channel focuses largely on content involving the Bachelor franchise, despite us having zero intention of that being the case when we started. Since Whit has been a TV producer for 16 years, she has the technical skills needed to put out quality videos, as well as some insider information. And because Ry’s so social media savvy, she always provides info (and laughs!) that our audience may not know yet. Like most mothers, whether working outside the home or not, a huge challenge for us is finding time each week to get together. So far, we’ve managed to balance it all out.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We spend most of our freetime (which isn’t much!) on the Big Creek Greenway, which covers many miles of Georgia.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Our mama – cause she gave us everything!
