The Vault Member Spotlight: Brittany Rendak
Brittany Rendak works in the entertainment industry as a PR coordinator. She is also a content creator, blogger and has a podcast called Breaking Down in 2020. The podcast is all about how to break into the entertainment industry.
Brittany was prompted to create her brand as she always dreamed of moving to LA. She tells us more about that dream and how she achieved it, “I made the big move after college and wanted to share everything I was doing in the city I loved. I already loved writing, so why not share about my life in this new city? I started posting my photos and life around Los Angeles while working a full-time job in the entertainment industry. It started more as a hobby and then I realized I could actually make money from something I was so passionate about. I started posting high quality pictures consistently and landing sponsored collaborations. It started as a Los Angeles lifestyle blog and has turned into so much more.”
Brittany describes her content as “fun, sassy, and ambitious style.” She also says, “The purpose of my blog is to inspire and encourage millennials to live their dream while finding joy exploring the beautiful world, especially in Socal. On TikTok, you can find me depicting the differences in the fashion industry for girls with bodies like mine, while still promoting acceptance and positivity.”
Clearly Brittany loves what she does and she explains, “I love being able to help people, and capitalizing on my personality to build my brand and share it with others! It is a dream that I get to do this for a living. I always spread positivity and am kind to everyone. It is also such a perk to be able to work with some of my favorite brands and meet other amazing people in my industry!”
We asked Brittany for some advice on balancing career, relationships and social life and here is what she had to say, “Set aside planned time for all these things! I have a very busy career, a boyfriend and a vibrant social life. I also love my alone time. You will make time for the things that you love. Even though my job requires me to be on my phone basically 24/7, I make sure to put it down when I am on vacation or spending time with my boyfriend/friends as much as I can.”
Although Brittany loves her current careers she has had some struggles along the way. “My previous company in the entertainment industry struggled during COVID and they weren't able to offer me what I needed to stay. I didn't feel valued and I left with no other job during a pandemic. It was the scariest thing I had ever done in my career and I questioned if I had made the right decision for so long. I worked hard and was determined I would find a better fit for myself...and I did! My new job is so perfect for me and I work with such amazing people. I am so happy that I made that decision.”
