We had the good fortune of connecting with stephanie santos and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi stephanie, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
My balance over time has drastically improved. From the beginning of content-creating career I was a full-time student (I graduate in the fall of 2022) so my school work always came first and I had to find ways to time-manage and find the balance between work, school, fitness, and social life. It was a lot of trial and error to find the schedule that worked best for me. Another key factor is the mindset you have. Any job can be overwhelming and tedious at times, but remembering what the bigger picture is for you can be the biggest game changer. The way that I think about the balance is in increments, so could be a week’s glance or a month. If I have been doing homework for two days in a row I know to take a break from that the next day and get work done or even make it a mental rest day.
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.
I create content on social media and paid subscription sites such as fanhouse, fansly, and onlyfans. My content is mainly cosplay and lingerie media sets. My main source of income comes from creating lewd content and bringing other people’s favorite characters to life through my cosplays. I am growing my other socials such as youtube and twitch as well because I really love connecting with people online and sharing my life experiences with them through travel videos, my fitness journey, and more. I really love what I do and care about my subscribers and their enjoyment on my websites and I genuinely believe that sets me apart from others. I control what content I put out, and how I promote it, and it is also me answering all messages on there so they are getting the real thing. I am proud of my growth as a creator. Both my wholesome and lewd content improves as I get more experience and the proof is in my portfolio. I believe I got to where I am today through consistency. Consistency is key. I have always created quality content and I give my all to whatever I put out into the world. It definitely was not easy, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy every step of the way. Some of the lessons I have learned is to not compare my journey with someone else’s. Focusing on being better than the version you were yesterday is always the best course of action. I want the world to know that anything I create is a form of self-expression and I put it out into the universe with the hope that someone will feel that and get to escape the realities of life for a little bit.
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?
If my friend was visiting the area I would definitely invite them to one of the many art museums here in Miami. There is a new immersive exhibit named “beyond: van Gogh” and it looks like an amazing experience. You also cannot go wrong with a beach day or a spa day. I would also want to try out many of the great restaurants and bars Miami has to offer. I think some of the most fun things to check out in Miami is the outdoor activities we have such as kayaking or jet skiing and taking advantage of the nightlife and clubbing at club space or e11even.m
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to dedicate this shout-out to everyone who has supported me on my life journey. To my family, friends, and community online, you truly make this all worth it. The positivity you all have given me is irreplaceable and it is appreciated greatly. I also would like to give credit to my past self for working through my depression and self-harm and becoming stronger than I ever thought possible. I am grateful to be alive and thriving.
