Life & Work with Andrea Garner

Today we’d like to introduce you to Andrea Garner. 

Hi Andrea, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I have always been a foodie person. I’m the house people come to for thanksgiving and ask for the best restaurants. I love making sure people are having a good time! It just felt natural to start a YouTube channel and Instagram (and now TikTok) when I post my food and great places for everyone to eat (even when I travel out of state) 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Not a totally smooth road. I decided to add an Etsy shop to my endeavors. It’s been an exercise in time management. Attempting to post good quality content, quality reviews, and recommendations and make quality products on top of a full-time job is a lot. There are days where you want to do nothing but eventually, I want to make my creative side my full time so I keep going! 

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Currently, I run a YouTube channel called Potatoes and Pearls. I post reviews of kitchen gadgets; travel and I post my own recipes. My YouTube channel has branched into Instagram and Tik Tok, where I post restaurant reviews and other quick recipes. Lastly, I own an Etsy shop (also called Potatoes and Pearls) where I mainly sell handmade wax candles (but I am testing other products as my business grows) 

I am most proud of my YouTube channel as I feel like it’s helping people make better and easy food. Eventually, I would like to put out a cookbook. 

I think what sets me apart from others is that I go for the simple aspect. I try to make my recipes easy to follow and promote the viewer’s creativity to add what they want. I want everyone to be able to cook. Even in my Etsy shop, my candles are simple where they blend in and they are for everyone
