Today’s guest is digital creator and TikTok star, Ellie Zeiler, who has over 10 million followers on TikTok. And we also have her mom, Sarah Zeiler (who also has a platform of her own) on the podcast, and today is going to be a deep dive behind the scenes. And it’s not going to be about creating content, so to speak, but we’re going to get deep. We’re going to get real. We’re going to talk about mental health. We’re going to talk about how it impacts family dynamics. We’re going to talk about how it impacts parenting. We’re going to talk about how to deal with bullying. We’re going to talk about addiction. We’re going to talk about boundaries. We’re going to talk about what it’s like getting famous as a teenager and so much more!
