Sound great Mike, here oh that's okay they see me all the time Emma look at me I'm podcasting. We're. Gonna start with the first questions so it's gonna set like it's gonna feel like we're just jumping into it but I've already set it up. Alright, so they're gonna edit your audio later, so there's not gonna be like a show, right now so they've already done so they're gonna just like edit you mean later yeah. Okay. Cool it's Jill okay I promise that won't be weird, you. Can you hear then you're on our level. Alright. Hi hi. Malaria. I'm so happy to have you thank, you so much I'm so happy to be here I'm so excited to get to know you better and specifically. You in the YouTube, world because, I, just feel like us being up here in Toronto there's, not that many of us I know and I feel like we, are not, united. Enough, I know we're gonna unite, and we're also gonna learn more about us so I was wondering if you could give us a little brief overview, about, you. So. I, am. 28. Years old and I, have three children I am. A holistic nutritionist. Which is what basically brought, me into the, social media world okay, I decided, to start a blog which, was in 2016. Very late for a blog fun. Fact, yeah no one was reading at that point anymore so, I, thought that an xbox best thing I mean Instagram was already kind of going strong you already had it in serum or like Instagram the app was good like strong Instagram the app no I had nothing okay, I was like I had three photos with like really bad filters, you know and it's like the oh yeah, you know and around it the reefs have rounded corners yeah. Yeah. It was a lot of weird stuff was posting like recipes, here and there but, I didn't really made, it into, I would say a business, Instagram I was just like sharing my own things with people that followed, me like mostly friends and family then I was like okay what's the next kind. Of platform. That will, give. Me the stage to really show, Who I am and that scared the hell out of me yeah and that was YouTube, wait what your duties are huge so all of that happened, in span of like four or five months, oh really, I learned really fast I'm like okay holy, xxxx next if something doesn't work I move on yeah I don't just kind of sit and dwell on it for, too long so I, took action and I started YouTube and that was yeah I was still 2016, I really appreciate, that taking, action is not, a skill that everybody has okay, before we, jump, into a little bit more about you because I want to know everything that you're willing to share I want to go through a quick lightning, round if. You're cool with that yes okay do it so, can you describe yourself in one word aggressive. I. Need. To be more lightning with this okay, okay last, place you traveled Mexico. Oh oh, my god yes it was a family vacation favorite. App on your phone other than social, media, Netflix. First. CD you ever bought Britney. Spears baby one more time mm-hmm, Instagram. Or YouTube YouTube. If you had to choose a new career what would you choose journalism. What's, your favorite item in your closet my, furry pink. Jacket, of my husband hates. Words. To live by um. That'd. Be beautiful. Okay. That's the end of the lightning round I think I'd be good job so, after you started your YouTube channel mm-hmm, did you get popular, right away did you start getting viewers so I was doing a lot of recipes, and they were so cringy, and awkward today I'm gonna share with you this delicious, flower. Live zucchini chocolate, muffins yes, you've heard me zucchini there's, a vegetable in it and you're gonna love it let me show you how to make it and sometimes, I like to like go, back and watch them yeah it's a crunch and you're just like look how far I've come, yeah just like Villere you know what good for you so. I kept posting a few of those and no, one watched them there was maybe like 1015, views but for me that was huge because I'm like how did these people find me YouTube represented. Everything I was scared of I had to record. Myself I have to put myself out there and I, was very self-conscious. About my accent, by my grammar about my vocabulary, so, it was all these things that really scared, me that's kind of where I wanted to get so I didn't even think this is going to become anything but I was like you know what worse thing that can happen is, you'll, be at the same place you are right now which is zero.

School Yeah, but you, will learn, to be comfortable with yourself and just you know kind. Of see where, it takes you so that's, why I started YouTube it made me become, very, like crafty, and creative. And I, didn't know that was missing from my life, that's, great creative outlet so you asked, me if it became popular right away I started nutrition didn't really do much so. My husband I was like don't you know how to do like that make up stuff like. Modeling. For over ten years can't, you just do, something like that I'm like really, who's gonna watch it so I was like okay whatever I'll do beauty and that's, when I started, seeing, mmm. Action, I started, getting comments, and I started even getting requests, you know people were like oh I love what you're wearing women should do a fashion thing was like okay yeah yeah yeah. Yeah I can put a coat on and world. So. That's, kind of how it all started, it took me a while to start being consistent I didn't know the, importance, of being consistent, on YouTube yeah again I didn't know that it could become anything, I just started like a really cool hobby maybe six months into YouTube I was like okay I'm gonna start creating, videos posting, once a week I think when I got my first inquiry, for sponsorship. Oh yeah, that's when I was like what. You, wanna pay me thirty dollars, to show your probiotics. Okay. And. I remember I went to Gary I was like her husband, my husband I was like hey listen someone's, paying me thirty dollars to show a box of probiotics. That I'm already, using how, did this company know to contact me and he's like okay, cool this is so cute good for you and then I, had my first hit video okay, yeah there's always like something, that was the turning point yeah what was it and that was how. To look good in every picture malaria, hero, model so how do i what, do I do how do I pose how, do make me look skinny, coming. Straight from the model, yeah. Exactly so it, was just, simple, things like hacks, that I've learned throughout my career again, I took something that I saw so many people kept asking in the comments, and I made, a video about it and that's, when it just went. And what, year was that I, think it was. 2017. How long after that did you hire your first person because you have a whole team now Emma was the first person we hired and, Emma's. Been, with us for a year a year and a half I wanted to go really hard into YouTube now because I understood, that there's a lot of potential here to grow to build a business it didn't only feel my creative, outlet, it also fed. My entrepreneurial. Yeah yeah and I wanted to create more content, I came, to my husband and he's like why, are you spending most of your time on editing. Exactly, I, shoot, for 30, minutes and then I edit for five hours at that point my husband, said. You're generating income from, this yeah, let's reinvest. In the, company that's when we decided to incorporate the business and hire someone, that will, you know be doing, their own craft like their own expertise, and you can actually hone, on the what you, can do which is content because you no one else can create the content but you at first I was kind of being. Like no, this, is a one-man show and I'm gonna do it on my stuff, and he's like okay business 101 this, will not go anywhere if you insist. On doing everything yourself some, of my favorite, word's live by our work smarter, not harder, exactly, and that's what delegating, is yeah, I think, that a lot of people do a one-man, show or, woman show they might have like an editor or a videographer but, you have like full-time staff like salary, right what we're trying to create is basically, an in-house, MCN.

Slash, Management. Today there's a lot of youtubers a lot of social media people that are managed, by these, huge companies that's, something that I was a part of as well when I just started it felt like they don't really, know. Ya, much I've noticed that so many of them were cold call or send us emails everyone, represents, Lilly Singh, everybody. Everybody. Represent, Logan Paul yeah I was like hi I. Don't get I don't get it I was in a modeling industry for over a decade and as a model you are relying. On your, agencies, to bring work for you you can go out there and get work for yourself yeah so you sit there and wait and you, know sometimes they call sometimes they don't and I just really, hated, that aspect of my job and I always thought you know what one day I'm gonna, be in a position where I, don't need to, sit and wait like I'm gonna go, out there and get myself for our listeners an MCN, is a, multi-channel. Network from the u2 perspective it just kind of sucks it's like this, big network that's trying to like scoop, up all these youtubers, and take a portion of their income since, you do have this team you have like yes that management bird type person but if they're in-house exactly. So the reason why we have six people is that we do our accounting, in-house we, do our business inbound. And outbound in-house, we have the editors, yeah and we have a production manager so that's, that's, the team if you don't mind me asking what are your major, income. Sources like, brand deals. Adsense. So my, business, is fully, funded. By my. Business so I mean we're generating, income we. Are reinvesting. It back into, the. Business and we're growing obviously, gary is your partner in, life mm-hmm. And also. Kind of in the business like is he more. Of like an advisor is he like, fully running, this company with, you so we, are partners, 50/50, I knew that I had Gary beside me who to, me is a business, genius yeah and why, won't I go, to him and you, know and get him involved I would say that he is running the infrastructure. I'm definitely. Part, of it all but I've also noticed when, I was very very involved, in the beginning in like the smallest things, it really sucked the creativity, out of me yeah I understand, and I really, couldn't create it's still taking, me time to let, go I'm involved, in a lot of like the, high-level. Decisions. And, trying. To stay away from all, this like little. Minut details, exactly. Just like clogged down your brain exactly, I also have a family I have children so, the, amount of time I have.

To, Think, about being. Creative, or think about myself or go into my own little world very. Like, small small, percentage. Of my week keeping, inspired and stuff that's why you, know all these new channels do so well is because they are a breath, of fresh air they're like new, talent, I guess you could call them and they, have a fresh perspective it's, hard when there is so many like young faces. And when you do something for so long and this is like your career, yeah, it's hard sometimes to like keep, everything, fresh and enjoy your own content, yeah it's hard the platform, just has so. Many younger. People on, it I mean we're kind of like ancient, when, it comes to. The. Age on, YouTube we. Are yes but, I think that, we cater to a different audience I love, seeing young, people, creating. And, you know how seeing their visions it's super cool I don't, feel like it's, a competition yeah. Because I truly believe that my audience, it's different you know I don't cater to 13 year, olds who are going to high school need, their school. Outfit, exactly. That's not our audience, Yeah right like you guys have a specific, audience I have a specific audience I think that there's room for everybody, and the more the merrier I think that so many people are learning so much about each other about, the world about different hobbies about different things through YouTube literally every person I meet I'm like start a YouTube channel start, a YouTube channel because I truly believe that everyone, has something to say it actually like makes me more, optimistic. Yeah, some, like. Most channels sound like. Stumble. On this channel but it makes, me optimistic because, YouTube, is a great place to just like kind of revive yourself survive, escape, a little you learn yeah learn a new hobby learn how to do some makeup or a DIY exactly. How. Is it working, with. Your husband, do you work together like all the time because that could be a lot working with the same person, all the time and seeing them all the time at home at work it's, a lot I actually do, love spending time with him that's, good. It's. Nice to know that your, partner, in business, is someone, that wants the best for you and you know have the best intentions, when he gives me feedback on when we talk about business like I know that it comes from the right place I don't have to be like what's the motive here yeah so it's, actually, amazing. Like I feel super, super lucky. Yeah could be in this position it's, also nice to have somebody that really understands. What you're going through and, just, what you're dealing with on the day-to-day I mean obviously there's downsides, to, maybe, being around each other all the time although it seems to be working out for you just fine no, listen we sometimes we do get on each other's nerves yeah that happens, when you're married in general yeah it's not right it's nothing different, right you know it's just being honest, and communicating. I think, it brings us closer, as well because we both really, passionate, about entrepreneurship. About, business, and to have something in, common with your partner where you both are so obsessed with it and you talk, to each other about it and it's mutual, that's pretty. Amazing yeah, so okay so something else you have in common are three. Little offspring, that you have yes, those little guys those, little guys I know, you've mentioned before, how like. You consider yourself a mom obviously, but, you you explained it better how did you explain it about not. Being like, just, a mom and not losing your own identity you live under this light.

Where This is how you're supposed to do things and everything else is you, know yeah, important, you're a mom you should still like only care about your kids I'm not just a mom that, will sometimes you know have, a chance to run outside, of the mom hole. And do something for herself, you know I've, realized, that and not for my lifestyle, for my happiness for the happiness of my family I, have to be happy with myself first, and make myself happy and not put that expectation. On my, husband, or on my children once I started looking at that this way where am Valyria. I'm, a mother I'm a wife I, you know I do all these things it just made. Me more, authentic. And just made me to connect with myself more, like I love, Who, I am now because not trying to. Fit. Anything, like, this is this, is it yeah. Ah the. Hate could just be so, much, with with, children, yes. How do you deal. With that I just. Remind. Myself to, be kind and compassionate, because. You, know for me if someone. Decided. To go online create, a profile, write, all these mean things they're. Going, through something yeah something. Really sad happening, in their lives okay so I'm curious yes. As a Toronto, lady like, myself love, our city yes why, haven't you moved to LA do you want to move to LA have you thought about moving to LA we, talked about it a few times but. I honestly. Love, Canada so much and I love Toronto and, I, just know that this is where I want, to raise my children. Yeah yes. You. Have you there I'm like yeah that's. That's. The answer I mean I don't want to sound if there's gonna be an opportunity in the future that makes sense yeah you, know for our business, then. Yes I'm not opposed to live, somewhere, for, a couple of years but I know that I'm gonna end up, in Canada. Yeah so okay I have a business proposition all, right bring, it up am, I in the car I was like listen I'm gonna come and meet the sorry girls, and I, would propose for. Them to be part of my new home thing. Going on cuz we're like having this whole series planned planned out oh my gosh yeah and we have like the kids room and, I've never done a kid sir my dudes are like really serious they know exactly what they want okay, so I, think you guys can sit, down you, know each of them and be like what do you want what's your personality like what would you like to feel when you go into your room and they'll tell you all about it and then you guys can you. Know oh my, god Surprise them with the. Makeup. Makeover. Oh my god that's so fun well we're, on board room, makeovers they're just smile it's my favorite I could live the rest of my life just doing that oh my god that's like my nightmare, I couldn't imagine designing, a place from scratch like having to pick tiles. Like you're. Going, through and I was like eight months pregnant, no and I'm just standing there and they're showing me 50, shades of white I'm sweating, I'm like I don't know what to do and all I keep hearing is, like valaria, this is gonna be the tile for the rest of your life this is what you're gonna be looking at staring, at forever make, the right short I'm just like all.

Comments:

Let me know what you guys thought of the episode and if you have any more questions?!

Valeria, you’ve mentioned that you always tell people to start a YouTube channel. Have you even thought of leading someone into the YouTube “world” and making money of that? By taking a percentage of the potential income this person/channel is going to generate?

Dear Valeria, please tell us about your new house! May be a little bit about design solutions, rooms , decoration plans. So interested about it!

really great! I love what you're doing!!!

Hey Valeria! I love you and your videos and I have a little suggestion.Can you make some short videos like 6-8 minutes long because sometimes I don't have much time to watch the whole video. So, some little videos would be great! Thank you,have a nice day!

The residential place looks like James Charles old house

I love you xxx

I loved this episode! I would like to know, how do you stay motivated? and best life advice that you know? also i really love your videos and you inspire me so much. i admire your hard work! xo

جميلة ودمك خفيف

You just motivate me so much Valeria!!

I am a 23 year old,medical student studying in Russia and I happy to admit I’m your audience. Love love your character and kindness

That was a good conversation.

honestly, i have only been watching for like 3 minutes and i am feeling a bit dizzy... I love watching your videos and I follow your channel very closely, but next time maybe take this "shaky camera" issue into account when editing or recording?

Omg valeria first video of you that I watched was how to look good in photos

excited that i have found you on youtube ...is your black and white coat current season ? what brand is it ?

When my two favorite channels collide! I live in NYC, yet I swear I'm from Toronto.

She looks like lana rhoades Lol!

Love u so much ❤️ Hi from Poland ❤️

Классная беседа!вы такая молодец,обнимаем вас

This was so nice, great video! I wish I had a real life friend like Valeria, she is amazing! ^^

I loved this Valeria

Woow, I didn’t know it was Gary’s idea about makeup videos, it’s so cool

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Valeria I really enjoyed your channel and your content but not anymore.. you upload once in a week, you always talk about hard work but that doesnt reflect in your videos. You upload one video which is supposed to be a weekly vlog but we only see your podcast and you talking Sorry I dont see the content. I cant be a subscriber anymore.

+Alina Mihaela look i'm not here to argue with anyone, I say what I see.. I used to watch every single video and this week I know she uploaded one more time but sorry I can't see the ''content''. A video where she shows clothes and how to survive with 5-6 items of clothing? This is not content. This is not hard work. I just got sick of her talking about business and makes us vote for videos that just won't be made. Sorry again that's my personal point of view, if you want to argue and defend her just don't.

Maybe you're not watching all her videos because she uploads 2-3 times a week lately...

this crossover is crazy i love it

This was so honest, lovely and humble. The first video I ever watched of Valeria was "Being rejected from Victoria Secret." Since then, I have seen Valeria grow on youtube

У Валерии приятный и мягкий голос♡ А ведущую невозможно слушать - что за мода так скрипеть когда разговариваешь(((

20:10 is for you haters

Will I ever get to do this??

I actually really loved your nutrition videos

I just found out your first heat video was the first video I saw from you! That’s so impressed to see you grew such a large community and became successful. You are the best. Love u!❤️

SO GOOD

The "so many things to remember, eh?", Valeria you´re officially a Canadian now.

Nice video but where is our babies?!?!??

Love The Sorry Girls new podcast, this was a good segment. Good job Valeria (see what I did there

Loved the podcast. Would love to know where that white turtleneck you're wearing is from? It looks so cozy.

love you and thesorrygirls❤ Can't believe yall are appearing in the same video!

Thanks so much Valeria for the sharing.. I was like.. I should follow your media path. Blog, instagram, YouTube.. I mean you always move forward and work smarter not harder. Thanks so much getting my booster back.. yaay. Success for your channel!

In the future, if you're going to have Emma or whoever do the camerawork for you, consider a stabilizer because the clips that aren't stationary are almost unwatchable, especially if you get motion sick.

Valeria, have you taken the Myers Brigg's test? I really enjoy the content you put out here on Youtube. You are one of my role models I look up to so much, thank you, for everything you do. I hope to meet you someday!

a lot of haters who dont have a clue about how a business is run... valeria I may not agree with all the decisions you make, but you clearly work hard, have a vision you are successfully bringing to life, inspiring others, and being an awesome mom and wife all at the same time. keep going!!

I hope she realises that she's a true role model to so many girls out there, thank you Valeria !

I really enjoyed this, thanks team

Valeria please can you do more smoothie videos !! And nutrition :)

This was interesting

Where is my real life Gary??!! haha you guys make me believe in true love :)

What a great opportunity so nice to see you branching on all these outlets !

How you keep it together? It's easy! Just get 2 nanny's and hire 6 people to help edit and film videos + do a bunch of other business stuff so you don't have to do it :)

+Its Peachy PNG Wow she changed the title of this video.

charlistry i was mostly saying this because there are youtuber that make 1 video ad day that are better quality and longer and have 0 staff. and yet here she is making the same content as everyone, maybe 2 video’s a week. And then in her videos she talks about being so busy and having so much to do etc etc when she has so many people helping her run her ‘business’.

yes, that’s exactly what she’s saying. she’d be unable to do what she does and be where she’s at without all the support she as. retaining an 8 person staff isn’t feasible for everyone, no, but not everyone has a business to run. it’s about not over-extending yourself and learning to delegate.

2000% agree!

Love your transparency. You inspire me to want to start my own channel and brand and business! Also hi Emma!

Loved this! ♥

Yeeeiii, i liked it!

Valeria is my business inspo always, so fearless

I love you

Love you ❤️❤️❤️

this was so good, you nailed it! :)

Not sure how others feel, but podcasts are for listening. I would have preferred to see a clip of this and then moved on to your everyday life. OOTD, Smoothies, driving, Hip Hop, working out etc Just my opinion though.

I think LA ruins everything, the influencers that move there end up doing the same anyone else is doing and even damages their mental health. I think you will reign Canada if you keep up working this hard

Gisela I agree. When (some) influencers move to LA, all of their content starts being so similar. Then they start looking the same, dressing the same. They become out of touch with their core audience... I personally am super happy when my favourite youtubers get successful don’t get me wrong.

As a 27 y/o, wanting to have children with my partner in a couple years-did you ever think about if your sexual life would change? Were you ever scared of not ever feeling sexy after children? Intimate question I know, but it’s something I think about often.

You’re such a good mom!

I love this type of videos,indeed all of your videos! They are fantastic like you!

As I already said when you posted that you were podcasting with the sorry girls, you should start your own podcast and listening to the episode made me believe it even further.

3:22 the camera is too much shaking. this is giving me migraine :( p.s I love you so much Valeria!!!

Its so beutiful

Hello Valeria. I really love what you do. Congratulations and keep it up! I love the bracelets you wear all the time. What brand, or similar please?

We literally have the same phone and case

I love her and all. But I don’t get how hard of a work everything is since she does hire a lot of people to help her with different aspects in her life.

+hello is it me youre looking for She seems to be a real professional. Thank you for your recommendation. Valeria keeps telling that she's a holistic nutritionist but she can't cook. ANYONE can make smoothie today. I find nothing to learn from her.

hello is it me youre looking for

I find her very fake now. One business woman i enjoy watching is karin bohn. She lives in vancouver and has her own interior design company. You might enjoy her videos, shes hard working, stylish, real and gives great advice

+Lala Fontaine it's easier than other mothers that don't have help but I think Rasa's comment expresses my thoughts. And she also says that nannys don't stay all the time with the baby, also kids always want their mommy's attention I know that from experience. Some hours to my sister in law house, who has 3 kids and I'm already going crazy.

+Alina Mihaela Alina, please remember that she has TWO nannies (maybe three nannys) and let them clean the house, go grocery shopping, do other chores, cook for children and babysit the newborn baby. SO EASY

Rasa yup that’s true

We do not know whats happening behind scenes. You only see 30min-1h instead of her life in a week which is 168 hours. But I absolutely agree she has way better, luxury and easier life than other 3 kids moms. As she does not need to clean house, she does not need to cook/ or cook for kids (As she said that in one video she rarely does it). But to have conception that if you hire people and becoming a boss you dont have anything to do or its an easy job its quiet wrong opinion. Boss needs to delegate work, check employees work, tell what needs to be fix and deal with other inside company issues, find ideas, make everyone happy, one to ones and go on and on.

+Alina Mihaela good for her :)

Alina Mihaela well that’s why she hired many people for

Well, have 3 small kids, a big house to clean and a job and maybe you will get it...

true! I enjoy her channel a lot but c'mon you need to admit its not that much of hard work when you have so many people working for you.

So well spoken! I would be very nervous in a situation like that. ❤

I could be listening it all day!! LOVELY!!

Hey Valeria,What you did i did the same tiktok tiktok that bummy road

it's strange cuz I preferred your content before you had a full staff. The amount spent on employee salaries doesn''t seem to be reflected in the quality of your videos.

I couldn't agree with you more!

Daniela S what are those business?

I love simplicity more too, my favorite vlogs of her are still her Russian travel vlogs.

I agree

After listening to the podcast she was a guest in, I learned that her staff doesn’t only work on YouTube. They’re growing Valeria inc. into many different businesses.

What are you talking about? She is doing 2-3 videos a week with 3 children, one is a baby and she stays up at night with him. And if you would watch her eyes you could see the lack of sleep. I wish other youtubers would be more honest about the behind the scenes...

I dont think its the content so your criticism isn't really valid... its the fact she still has to pay some attention to her husband, 3 kids, self like working out and eating well and other projects and editing takes more work than you think. Thats what the staff is for...

I love you Valeria but I would like to comment on your repeated comment that "blogging was outdated in 2016". There are many successful bloggers that do YouTube and blogging. Blogging can be a great source of income and I would hate for anyone to be discouraged from creating one!

The ones i watch that 'still' have a blog drop it after two posts and then hype about relaunching and back to not post ever

Amazing Video as always:) when is the London Vlog coming? ❤️

I really like your videos when they are this honest and open and vulnerable! I'm 28 like you and look for your perspective on things, just like I look to School of Life but like a real life example with all the quirks that real life has :D

I’ve been following you since you were 100k and you’re almost 1M. It’s amazing I’m so happy for you Valeria

nelly simplynou Yeah, and she absolutely deserved this

Beyza H. In under like 2 years right???

I'm a new subbie I found you from Mimi Ikonn. But you're so cool and fun . Sending positive energy and prayers xx

So nice of you to take time to comment!

You are so inspiring. I'm so happy that so many people can benefit from your words

I love the sorry girls, and the hole thing put me in a good mood :) I just love your vlogs ❤️ keep on doing that please until forever!

You have a happy and funny family!

You're almost at 1 million subscribers!!!! Congratulations on an amazing year of success, so inspired to have seen you grow these past couple of years :) Speaking as someone who was raised in LA and lived here for nearly 30 years, I'd recommend not to. Everyone says they want to come to LA to become a big star YouTuber. What I've seen is an explosion of very similar videos of big YTers all living in the same city and their content blending together (I also don't want to raise my children here either). You have something so unique there in Canada with beautiful seasons and a different way of life. Use that to your advantage and turn Toronto into the next big hotspot for Youtubers!

Really needed this, just been through tough days. You have no idea like, how many people you inspire and motivate. ❤

My every day inspiration,

I loved it so much

Really enjoyed this. Thank you again for the inspiration and I totally agree that everyone has something to share and with three kids and all your other experiences at your age, that's not ancient. I've not gone as far as you in life or on youtube, but in age I'm further than you, so if anything, I'm ancient but I still believe I have something to share too =) Go girl!

❤❤❤

As I said a few times now - you are an inspiration!

love you gorgeous!

Emma moves a lot the camera with the sorry girls I felt dizzy lol

+Nicole Brennan Exactly. Those pop up pictures themselves are so annoying, too.

JANETH GONZALEZ INFANTE ughhh and don’t even get me started with the incessant noise effects. Every time a picture pops up “bloop” “bloop” WHY!? So annoying

Always.

I have no words. Discovering your channel has been a wonderful thing. Not only you (and Gary!) have inspired me to create my own business, but you've also inspired me in many other aspects of life and to have a clear vision of what I truly want. You're fantastic and you look like a great person. Sending a big hug from Spain.

Love that space the Sorry Girls share, how beautiful!

Thank god I found you❤️ you are so inspiring

I have "ZERO" views as well

My Life is My Style here I am coming

YOU ARE NOT ANCIENT!!!! If it makes you feel better I'm confessing that during grade 8 when I was in fact 13 years old(I'M ALMOST 16 NOW) and everyone was watching Jake Paul I was watching your channel. I would be the wierd kid who shows up at school with my watter bottle filled with a smoothie "HEY OMG GUYS LOOK I MADE VALERIA'S SMOOTHIE RECIPE". In addition, my 14-year-old sister loves your fashion sense and literally dresses like a mini you, she is the only one in her school who shows up in mom jeans and an artsy sweater every day (I MEAN IT -EVERYDAY-) LOVE YA VALERIA!!!!!!

Three nannies, a full office staff and a billionaire husband ... yes, she must be run off her feet.

+Sue Silva Now I noticed she changed the title of this video.

And she said, she doesn't spent that much time with Max, because he won't remember it anyways - while she shoves the camera into her other kids faces in intimate situations, when they're snuggling or emotional, even though they're asking her to stop filming...

+acechadwick Yes it was truly *Ouch* moment. She is getting too dramatic and narcissistic. It's hard to enjoy her video these days..

+meelerahu *Top comment* Same here. I've been watching her videos from day 1. Now she turned into a shallow money-triggered narcissistic spoilt girl who is pretending to be a celebrity or something.

Sunny she does thank her team and mentions her nannies in every other video. I feel she’s pretty transparent on that end and never pretended she’s done it all alone. Sue,please try running a YouTube channel and see how that goes? I tried to be kind with you and I’ll try again. You’re draining yourself with the “critical thinking”. Do you benefit from it in any way? Do you feel better about yourself? Do you feel you aren’t alone in this world for your “critical thinking” opinions? If yes-good for you but I doubt it. Please,love yourself a little more!

+acechadwick that's what materialism does y'all. I love Valeria but that's her fatal flaw. All these couple videos talking about will & jada smith and making all this money together....we all know that creating is good, but when youre always hungry you never feel fed even if your plate is full. Wish Valeria could see beyond but look who she married..a businessman

I always remember the comment she made on Max's birth video when she said 'He is the latest accessory to Valeria Inc. and I was like 'Ouch'.... I find that now that people spend so much time trying to get content, that they don't actually live the content. They're just making content, not having an actual life. I much preferred her earlier videos. I thought she was very sweet. Now I see the steel. And is Gary working for her now? But hey ho...this is life now. It has to be seen to be lived, or is it really a life?

Sue Silva. ....i just want to say to u, that u sound, Idk, deep down may be envious. I used to have a job that made me about 5x more than anyone in my inner circle in half the amount of time. People would say that its not truly "work" and I was taking the easy way out ...and my response ..work smarter not harder. . valerias job is still work..it may be more enjoyable than some jobs and pay more..but if u could have a fun job making money wouldn't u choose to? Here's the thing..u can..so y are u dissing her for it? Its like ur jealous her life is easy in comparison to u...u can marry rich..u can start a business that allows u to work less and make more. ..y be mad that she's doing the things u decided not to do to make for an easier life?

Billionaire is too generous but you're right

+meelerahu I'm sorry, but to call what she does 'work' is quite a stretch.

I like Valeria a lot and I enjoy her family vlogs, but to be honest, I had mixed feelings about a thing she said in another video, regarding how she doesn't spend a lot of time with Max because of work and sometimes she feels guilty but she reminds herself that she's doing what she cans and I was thinking that she's a youtuber with 2 nannies and a full staff for her not so huge company, there is time when you make time, moms usually feel guilty for not spending time with kids because they are busy providing for them, and to be fair Valeria has a well privileged life, if most of the day she's at work it's because of passion, not necessity. I'm not saying that she should be a stay at home mom, cause that's obviously not the life she wants, but it's off saying you're feeling guilty not spending time with your kids when you can afford spending all the time in the world with them, Max was in his first weeks or days when she got back to work. It reminds me of a TV presentor(pretty rich too) from my country that said she also feels guilty for that cause she's at work and her kids at school, then language classes, then sport classes, and they only spend a couple of hours together...oh well......it most be heartbreaking "not having enough time"..not to sound mean and judgemental, my instinct is to compare with the least fortunate moms

+Sunny finally a critical thinker.

Does she mention the probably almost thirty ppl she employs when she's talks about "doing it all"?

+Stephanie Mayer Lol!

You sound bitter Sue! I am sure you have amazing qualities. Just concentrate on them!

Sue Silva, yes she’s still probably more successful than you, deal with it

why is she so gorgeous and inspirational❤️

Make a video about friendship

Im 15 from Malaysia. I started watching your channel when I was 13. U helped young people like me to know how to think what to think and be. Thank u xoxox ❤❤❤❤

You are an inspiration Valeria!!! ❤❤

The short clip in Gary's office was so funny... omg!!

I need a Gary in my life. You're a truly inspiration Valeria

Love you

Privileged white girl got married into money with a rich white husband talking about life

+Sue Silva and Although she keeps telling that she is a holistic nutritionist, she is not a good cook! Anyone can make smoothie today. lol Another Canadian youtuber, Holistic Habits, does way better in the nutrition field.

+nana chan i've done a lot of successful things on my own without a sugar daddy on my side

Haitam Kataka she's growing and on her way to build an empire. what've YOU done successfully?

+Sue Silva ummm when did she sell any makeup, other than brand deals. Also most of her clothes are super affordable. She can spend her money in her own way and if that offends you why you still keeping up with her??? Obsessed much

+Melissa Torres back at ya, baby. And by the say, what 'she has accomplished' is selling makeup and clothes to young women who can't afford it.

Sue Silva I’ve noticed you have been commenting on several threads on this post. You sound very bitter and just plain nasty. Like Valeria said in her video, you must be going through something horrible in your life. I pray you overcome this hurdle and become less ugly. Is she blessed and fortunate for all she has? Yes, of course. But does she and Gary work extremely hard for what they have and are building? ABSOLUTELY! Just because she didn’t come from the very bottom it should not diminish what she has accomplished. I shouldn’t have wasted my time in negativity but none the less have a great life my dear

+Vivid Petite yeah, she prances around in astronomically expensive clothes and makeup. So exhausting ...

Okay. Enough is enough! She is a mother of three,running a super successful business like do you really think this only happens because you’ve got a rich husband and you’re white? Grow out of your own insecurities and bullshit because I am honestly sick of hearing the same old broken record! Work hard and concentrate on your qualities,be smart and let’s see how that goes.

Also why editing you're comment? She can talk about whatever she want just like you're doing it here!

That's so untrue...please stop commenting if you have no idea what you're talking about.

Whattt!!!! She works her butt off, do you ever watched her videos?

Who hurt you?

Love this vid as always :) ur really down to earth and inspiring! I have a question: can I be a model even if I’m 5’2? Love you :)

what a crossover

Does she have origins ?

I love you ! You are the best

Ciao gioia notrasa tutto bene ok

What happened to your pregnancy transformation

This was a great video Valeria and Sorry Girls! I appreciate the all the information and how you opened up V! Thank you :-)

A pity you move around too much and it makes me dizzy ! Interesting vidéo

I love how Gary is so business focused "come to our office for lunch or dinner" YOU GO GARY!! So inspiring to see that he is so incredibly supportive

Emma's face at the end of the video

+Dan yeah that's true. I started being undatisfied with her content since she started promothing pantene. She's a nutritionist and she always talks about non toxic products and she promotes pantene. I mean yeah okay she wants to do her job but I wish I could see some content in all the advertising

+Vassiliki Schina Her channel is too commercial, that's why you probably see the content you are not satisfied with. Her earnings through youtube are based on Ads/affiliate links/sponsored videos etc.. When she shows you a product and links them in the description those are affiliate links. !!! (explenation) All the links of products in the description of her videos are affiliate links. Meaning she gets paid for every product purchased after having clicked on the link. You might click the link and buy a different product on the same website in a couple weeks, even then she still gets paid. Not even putting a disclosure of the affiliate links and explaining it is very deceiving to viewers. It's also isn't even legal according the FTC. Also unsubscribed because her channel became too commercial.

Yes I find that too

Victoria exactly

I love her and all. But I don’t get how hard of a work everything is since she does hire a lot of people to help her with different aspects in her life.

+Li that made me laugh :D

+Rasa I listened to her podcast he also works for the company. I don't want to discuss, those are only facts, and you wrote a too long comment waist of time to go trough that and respond.

Rasa my comment expresses my opinion only. I can’t control what people think. Whatever people commented, they are expressing THEIR own opinion. Don’t mix things up

+tresj Asj. but lets admit your comment brought a negativity here.

Rasa Hmm interesting opinion. And no it didn’t offend me since I didn’t write a negative comment anyways

+tresj Asj. Because would you actually tell her in front of her face in real time what you comment ? I do not need answer to it , it just to think about it for you. Because I comment and say what I think what I would tell person in real life. And reason why? Because that makes world nicer. And this is my moto for internet comments. And I will admit I use to comment 'shit' before, but one day I thought, why I am doing it? and is it worth it? And then I thought would I really say that in real world and would I be that person. And I do not mean what your comment is awful. I do not know you as well. And I probably could said in nicer words. I am sorry if offend it you. However most negative comments is from unknown people. The weird thing is that people who comment without name and photo good or bad has less impact than people with full name.

Rasa I agree on some points you mentioned. But why would a profile picture impact the perception of someone’s comment or opinion?

+Li Owning company does not mean being a boss of company. Mostly means share holders.He works with other clients as I I remember from other videos. I cannot be guarantee as I have stopped watching Valeria regularly of her content (its started to be not related to me anymore), just watching time to time. Maybe it has changed. My question is have you ever owned company? And I do not mean that if you do not you have not right to have opinion. But I want to say Valeria even said in her video, to be full time mom is harder than to do what she is doing. As disclaimer I do not have kids, I am only 27 years old, but even now to run and do your own business is hard for me, I cannot imagine to come back home and having 3 kids running and shouting and wanted to play with you. On top of that she 95 percent patient and happy in videos, (and yes some of people will say its for videos), but to have camera non stop and film non stop its not an easy mission esspecially that mostly that weekly footage is around 12 hours footage basically full day of the day obviously without sleep. Now some people will say 'oh but she has staff' .. but if you see some videos done at home , she do some of them by herself. Some people think it easy, but I tried once to do illustrations video, and it is time consuming, for 10 min video sometimes it takes 2-3 hour to do it. In the end of the day without seeing person what he does 7 days a week, is unfair to make conclusions. The first comment makes just negativity and why would you need that. It is weird that most people who comment negative has no picture, or no proper name. There will be always people who work harder, and trust me there are alot of more who does less than Valeria.

Her business is based on her lifestyle, it's personal branding, obviously she can't do everything herself. Just like other artists, singers, etc, have lots of people working for them, so that they can show their best side and give a better performance. Also, she's the one that has the ideas for content.

+Rasa If I remembered correctly.. Her husband has 50% of the company and does the ''hard'/difficult' things, after all he is a big business man/boss. So not sure who is delegating the staff/work, she was not really clear about that. I understand why people are criticizing her. To be fair, if she didn't have her multi millionaire and successful husband, she probably wouldn't have come this far.

Alina Mihaela she has full time nanny for the kids and people who are cleaning and doing every single little thing

+hello is it me youre looking for She seems to be a real *business* woman unlike Valeria. Thank you for your recommendation. Valeria also keeps telling that she's a holistic nutritionist but she CAN'T cook. ANYONE can make smoothie today. I find nothing to learn from her.

+Dan alright, have a good day

+MegaPerson2011 No. Dan is right. It's waste of your time.

+MegaPerson2011 Typical to say something like that. I follow people that I think are inspiring, Valeria doesn't fit in that picture anymore for me at least. ✌️

​+Dan it's your loss ✌️

+MegaPerson2011 Sorry I am not here for a discussion. I unfollowed her.

+Dan well, this is her job, how is she supposed to make money if the videos aren't sponsored?

+Lala Fontaine Yes, lots of big Youtubers are commercialized. I think twice now, before I follow YouTubers. But there is still hope like Jay Shetty, a major inspiration on all things in life. and I can name a few YouTubers more.

+Dan I agree. It's too commercial. Obviously her top priority is *money* . She even said, ''Max is the latest ACCESSORY to Valeria Inc.''

Mee too @musicalbunny, her channel is too commercial now. Ads/affiliate links/sponsored videos and the list goes on... Btw Emma shot the Russian wedding video, she made a mistake on that one. She has employees since summer 2017 not 2018.

If I remembered correctly.. Her husband has 50% of the company and does the ''hard'/difficult' things/work, after all he is a big business man/boss. Those are facts. I understand why people are criticizing her. To be fair, if she didn't have her multi-millionaire and successful husband, she probably wouldn't have come this far.

@Sue Silva I couldnt agree more with you. She always talks about hard work and content but I seriously can't see the ''content''. I don't care how many people she hires or how much money her husband has the only thing that bothered me as a former viewer is that she always talks but I can't see much of her work. Anyway, I unsubscribed so problem solved.

+meelerahu Same here. I've been watching her videos from day 1. Now she turned into a shallow money-triggered spoilt girl who is pretending to be a celebrity or something.

I was hoping for a Regular Sunday Vlog, its kinda pointless to see this vlog which is meant to be listened in a regular podcast. i think the quality of the video at first was pretty poorly since emma was moving nonstop. And also i feel like a lot of takes i have already seen in the past video. I was hoping to see something from the meeting in London or something since that was like two weeks ago. I love this channel but lately i haven't been feeling it, & i thought it was just me but reading through the comments i think a lot of us agree, and not in the position of being a hater but from believing that you can do soooo much better Valeria, with your creativity and your team's creativity, and also that all of us love how original you are and how loving your are doing things in your own style not trying just to keep up or just creating content just because.I believe in quality over quantity and i think we as your viewers will agree on that
