Publisher's Summary

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.

This book was a motivation!

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

Priceless Information!
keep Living Your Dream!

I wasn't her target market

When I read the book details, I noticed: "An insider's guide to building a successful YouTube channel".

I assumed that the book would be brimming with tips, tricks, software names, strategies, how-to's, and all of that delicious technical stuff.

It turned out to be full of personal stories from her life, which I feel would mainly be of interest to her fans.

I hope that Jenn someday will branch out from her fan world, and try to relate to the rest of us out here by writing a book that applies to all of humanity, rather than just her list of fans.
