Ep 39 Building a professional footprint online using TikTok with Tayde Gonzalez

Tayde Gonzalez leverages TikTok to educate people. She was selected by TikTok for their creator learning program and now she teaches professionals to use TikTok to build a solid digital footprint. Having moved from Mexico to California as a young girl, she experienced first-hand how her foreign experience as a Spanish speaking lady, gave an opportunity to work in product design in the fashion industry to travel around the world. We are reminded to "always be proud of your culture and were you come from, you never know what door it can open for you". Beyond work, Tayde shares how the world is changing with the way we learn and view professionals and how we can tap into the search engine and discovery abilities available with TikTok just by teaching the very basic things.
