Content creation nowadays has become a full-blown career. You can earn a considerable amount of income (coupled with the necessary amount of hustle, of course) while living out your creative pursuits. Many of today's top content creators, however, started out with a completely different job. After realizing their potential in content creation, some have even decided to leave behind their old professions and start a new career journey. 

Camille Co

Prior to becoming a full-time content creator, Camille Co owned a clothing line called Coexist where she also served as a designer. In 2018, she decided to close down her brand to focus on her other endeavors. Her last project for the brand was a wedding gown she made for her best friend.

Laureen Uy

Before launching her then-blog Break My Style, Laureen Uy owned a fashion brand called Stylebreak. She also dabbled in acting a bit and made appearances in the teleseryes My Binondo Girl and Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw.
