Aug 23 2021 • 44 mins

If you’re planning to build your personal brand on TikTok, this is the interview you’ve got to listen to!

My guest today is a baby sleep expert, Zoe Chu, whom her clients fondly call her SG Supernanny or Sleep Supernanny. Her work has been featured in the media by Channel News Asia, Asia One, and Mindvalley.

In 2019, she created her TikTok account and started creating content around sleep, health and positivity. Within a very short period of time, she amassed over 36K followers on TikTok, with some of her content getting over a million views.

If you're an entrepreneur or service professional looking to get started on TikTok but not sure where to start, listen in at 19:12 where Zoe shares how she got started using TikTok and her content strategy.

And listen in to Zoe's answers to the following questions:

  • I know that you were an accountant, an auditor, a real estate agent in New Zealand. What brought you back here to Singapore? – 0:41
  • How did this whole entire experience of the accident make you who you are today, a sleep expert? – 6:15
  • When you came to Singapore, how did you become a parenting coach? How did you make it a profession? - 11:39
