The Internet is her professional platform, social media the basis for her commercial success. Now she is using a printed medium – her book “Oder Nicht oder Doch” – to provide a glimpse behind the “rose-colored facades” of being an influencer. In it, she makes it clear that her job involves far more than holding lipsticks with discount codes up to the camera. It describes the long and challenging journey of a Generation Y entrepreneur. Joana Heinen is a serious ambassador for her industry. She is helping to ensure that “social media creator” and “influencer” are perceived as serious professions.
Time travel or guide
For those of us who have been young for a while, her book may be a little trip back in time to our own past as entrepreneurs or career starters.

In any case, it is an honest book that encourages, comforts and proves that it is worth fighting for your goals and not giving up. Sometimes a change of direction may be necessary to avert the failure of one’s life’s dream.
