116: Princess Etch - Making a living from a child’s toy

Jane is Princess Etch, and she plays with an Etch A Sketch for a living! She has had the incredible opportunity to work with notable clients such as Disney, Marvel, Cartoon Network, MTV, Callaway Golf, Toys R Us, Netflix, and more! For over 12 years Jane had less than 500 subscribers on her channel and one day, as she says, the algorithm gods arbitrarily blessed her and she’s been haphazardly attempting to repeat that success ever since. One time YouTube even sent her a cake!

In this episode, I sit down with Jane to learn about how she has become a successful creator, venturing into shorts and TikTok, and how she has worked with companies like Disney, IBM, and her focus on creating quality content that doesn’t have to be perfect.
