We recently connected with Ramil Ramillionaire Carr and have shared our conversation below.
Ramil Ramillionaire , thanks for joining us, excited to have you contributing your stories and insights. When did you first know you wanted to pursue a creative/artistic path professionally?
At first I was just dressing up for the love of clothes At first I was just doing it for fun my friends and family were asked me for styling tips into style them, so we just all for fun . and I didn’t know it was lucrative until later around 2018 I started doing it professionally I started booking clients for styling gigs and then that’s what led me to influencing once I was posted on brands and I took it seriously I hired a photographer, and then brands started contacting me, asking me to influence their products and their clothing.
Awesome – so before we get into the rest of our questions, can you briefly introduce yourself to our readers.
well at first it started out as a hobby I would get dressed up just to go place. and than people started asking me to pick out outfits for them and it went from there lol I was like I can make money from this I’m all in! than I started like paying more attention to other influencers and see how they were getting brands to pay them to where and use there products I wanted to do that so I looked and seen what I was miss and than I fixed it . so I hire a professional photographer to up grade my visuals and make my ig be more put together so people could understand what it is I do. what sets you apart from other is my personal style I’m very bold and unique with my fashion choose and that get peoples attention. I’m most proud of me doing the research and make it a realty getting hired by BRANDS. I want potential clients/followers/fans to know about me is that I’m true to my self and what you see is what you get I really live my life how my social media shows you.

What’s the most rewarding aspect of being a creative in your experience?
