Former celebrity stylist, Lindsay Albanese, gives followers an inside look into topics like the trials and tribulations of working with high-end clientele, to what starting your own lifestyle brand looks like. What separates Albanese’s Tik Tok from others is her candidness, especially about working with other people. She’s open and honest with followers about the times she has been fired and the difficulties of being in a position where there is a clear corporate hierarchy.
In her honest, conversational tone, she engages her viewers by instilling confidence in them with her video, “How to Know if You Should Ask for a Raise.” She encourages her followers to pay attention to their superior’s requests.
