Everyone must assume that being a content creator is easy, peasy, lemon squeezy… rainbows and sunshine. However, I am here to tell you, that this isn’t the case. Imagine being a content creator and after creating your video or podcast, you now have extra work to complete, such as — editing, posting, etc. I can just imagine the time taken away that can actually be used to creating more content. Even if you’re creating in the comfort of your home, no one should feel as if they’re non stop working, even when you do enjoy your job. To make life easier, entrepreneurs have taken this opportunity to create tech companies to help content creators in every aspect.
