Through her pranks, sketches, and videos about everyday life, Jenn has become a mouthpiece for millennials and one of YouTube's fastest rising stars!
Jenn McAllister, better known as JennxPenn, has been obsessed with making videos since she found her parents' video camera at the age of eight. A shy child, Jenn turned to film because, unlike with life, you can always have a do-over.
Really Professional Internet Person offers both an insider's guide to building a successful YouTube channel and an intimate portrait of the surreality of insta-fame and the harsh reality of high school. Brimming with honesty, heart, and Jenn's patented sense of humor, Really Professional Internet Person features top 10 lists, photos, screenshots, social media posts, and never-before-posted stories chronicling Jenn's journey from an anxious middle schooler just trying to fit in to a YouTube sensation unafraid to stand out.

When I purchased it I didn't know what I was actually buying. I wanted to get a better understanding of YouTube channels so I could incorporate the information into my Artistry Business Plan. I definitely got a understanding of where YouTube Channels started and how it could work for me.
Jenn if your reading this review I want you to know that Im 25 so I didn't relate to your high school days, but I did listen to this book straight through taking notes on what you had to say about YouTube Channels
keep Living Your Dream!
I watched many of Jenn's YouTube videos. I loved this book because you really get sense of who she is off and on camera. People like her really inspire me. The book is a great listen. She had a lot great advice.
I bought this without knowing who she is and have since watched some videos. This book has a narrow target audience (people who want to make YouTube videos) and if she had focused more on her struggle to do what she loves it might have been more entertaining or educational. She is a beautiful girl and some of her videos were pretty funny. Not my cup of tea though, guess I'm officially an old lady. :)
I learned more about my own daughter than I expected. I bought her the paperback and she is studying it carefully. The text is lighthearted, informative and insightful. The author has written in a very personal way about her journey into YouTube celebrity. It is not a DIY or How to, but a diary about the day to day and, the highs and lows. She explains what motivates her to create content and what sustains her through her challenges. Well done, a good example to her young fans.
I am a male in my early 50's. At this point I only listen to non-fiction audiobooks, primarily those dealing with spirituality and self-improvement. Audiobooks have had a huge positive influence in my life over the past year!
As someone who has my own modest YouTube channel, I was hoping this book would be filled with advice on how to grow your audience. Sadly for me, that is not what this book is.
Fans of JennxPenn will no doubt enjoy hearing about her life during High School, but that sort of thing is not my cup of tea. I pulled the plug after two and a half hours.
