A little over two years ago, Olivia Biermann started posting videos on YouTube about how to make healthy, inexpensive vegan recipes. She slogged away, making those weekly videos for about eight months, for a relatively small audience of faithful viewers. Then, something happened that could only happen in this era of social media. One of her videos went viral, garnering over 90,000 views within a few days. The rest, as they say, is history. Although that story is still being written.
Olivia, or Liv B, as she is known by her followers, has turned a hobby into a full-fledged business. Today, she has more than 630,000 YouTube subscribers. Her videos generate more than a million views a month. She has a new podcast she’s launched. And she is the author of a new cookbook, titled Vegan on a Budget.
I had the opportunity to interview Olivia when she was in Toronto recently to promote her new book. We chatted about her two-year journey to becoming a vegan, the experience of becoming a social media influencer, advice she has for people looking to make their mark in a creative way and much more.
