There are many ways to become famous, but none of them seem too straightforward. Sometimes people find themselves with no idea what will get their name recognized and spread around the world. With social media making it possible for anyone to be seen and heard, this has never been more important.
Olivia O’Brien is one such person. She has always enjoyed writing her own material, creating stories that she feels good about sharing. Since graduating high school in 2017, she has published two books and is currently working on her third.
Her first book was very popular. It sold over 5,000 copies within its first few months and received great reviews from both readers and writers. Many considered it an easy read and learned some things they didn’t know before.
Since then, Olivia has kept publishing and spreading her message across all types of media. She started tweeting, then Instagramming, now blogging! Her followers have grown along with her and she keeps posting quality content every day.
This article will talk you through how she got here, the reasons why she continues to put effort into her work even though it is successful, and what she can do to continue having success in the future.

Many people have famous dares to take just for fun. For example, someone could ask you if they can do something embarrassing or outrageous and then see what you say!
Olivia was at a party one night when she received such a dare. A friend dared her to eat five bowls of chocolate chip cookie dough before filming it.
Many people would not risk eating food like that but Olivia is very passionate about baking. So she accepted the challenge!
She made sure to document the process online so other bakers could watch and learn from her tricks. Her channel now has over 1 million followers which shows how popular her cooking videos are.
People have noticed her online presence for some time now, but it wasn’t until she launched her own show that she became famous. In May 2018, Olivia started hosting The Mockingboard, a monthly comedy chat show focused on fashion and self-care. Since then, she has hosted over 20 episodes and received over 2 million listens on all of her various music streaming apps.
Her style is always in trend and she doesn’t shy away from telling you how bad things look (which isn’t hard when you live in a city full of high profile fashionistas). But beyond just looking cool, what makes Olivia such an interesting speaker are the ways in which she incorporates self-care into her life.
She will talk about how important it is to take good care of yourself and why being more conscious of your mental health is essential to living a happy life. At the same time, she will also discuss how much beauty comes from within and how we should appreciate our individual quirks instead of trying to be like everyone else.
Olivia is clearly passionate about both topics so she designed her show with a set structure that encourages open conversation. This allows for greater intimacy as well as additional opportunities to ask questions or share experiences related to self-care.
Since launching her show, Olivia has gained a large social media following that supports her message. Many people tell her their personal stories or send messages asking for help with something they're struggling with.
A few years ago, former child star Olivia Mapell moderated an event with some of her old friends for An Evening With Olivia Mapell, where she shared stories from her life and time in show business.
During the chat, one of her guests asked how she had become famous, to which she replied that she wrote a book. This sparked laughter and applause because it is so cliché — we have all read enough self-help books to recognize this as a true statement!
But what if I told you that your favorite celebrity actually authored a book? That would be crazy right?!?
Well, it’s not totally impossible either! And before anyone says it, yes, she definitely took advantage of their fame but only because she wanted more than just recognition. Her writing career was always about helping others achieve success and giving them tips to do the same.
Her first book, _The Power Of Productive Conflict_, focused mostly on relationships and how to handle disagreements. Since then, she has written several other relationship and leadership guides, too.
After graduating high school, Olivia spent some time traveling around Europe before returning home to study business. While studying at university, she completed her degree while also working as a barista and receptionist. With no plan after uni, Olivia began looking for work and landed a position where she could use her communication skills.
Her new boss had a production company and asked if Olivia knew of anyone who might be interested in appearing in a television show. Her manager connected her with the casting team for his project and Olivia was hired!
The project involved filming people’s reactions when they found out their partner was dating someone else. More than twenty actors were recruited for this role, including your average twenty something who has never acted before.
Olivia was trained by professional acting coaches and students to play the part of the person whose relationship is about to come to an end. This includes changing appearance, voice, and body language to match the situation.
While walking down the street one day, Olivia noticed that her coat was in bad shape. It had raggedy fur around the neck and it was sticking out due to holes at the back!
Olivia is always up for an adventure so she decided to see what she could do to improve its look. Her first thought was to visit a seamstress to have new ones made but she didn’t want just any old ones!
She wanted special ones with lots of intricate detail and rich fabrics which are only possible if you spend enough money. Therefore, she started looking through Instagram for inspiration.
And wouldn't you know it – there were tons of pictures and videos of people doing something similar! Some even included how to tips too!
It took Olivia two weeks to pick her favorite pattern and sew process and now she has some very fancy fake fur! She also shared her finished product on social media and it got many likes and comments.
That's when things really picked up for her. More people asked for help or gave suggestions and it grew from there!
Her fans helped spread her message by sharing her work and using her as their example project (making sure to give credit!).
As we mentioned before, Olivia was born in 1995 as Olivia Jade Giannulli. You probably know her from her time on The Goldbergs as Jaclyn Geller or Aidy Bryant’s daughter on Rules for Dating My Daughter.
But she didn’t begin acting professionally until much later! In fact, she only really started exploring this side of her career when she was twenty-one years old.
She made her screen debut at the age of 23 in an episode of Showtime's popular series Ballerina. Since then, she has gone onto appear in other TV shows like House of Lies and Comedy Central's The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore.
Her first feature film role came in 2016’s No Escape where she plays Brooke, the sister of Liam Neeson’s character. Since then, she has starred in films such as What Happens Next and This Is Our City.
In 2020, she will be seen starring in the romantic comedy I Do Not Like Your Personality, and she'll also star alongside Jason Bateman and Charlene Amoia in the thriller Staircase.
As we all know, singing is one of the most universal forms of music. You don’t need an instrument to sing! Many people who can’t play an instrument or even recognize music as having parts can still sing very well. It doesn’t matter if you are tall or short, rich or poor – anyone can learn how to sing.
It’s great to be able to carry a tune and many professionals earn their paychecks by singing in public or writing songs. But what if you aren’t professional? What if you hate singing and want to do it for a living but have no idea where to start?
Luckily, there are ways to get into song-making without being trained as a musician. One way is to learn how to write your own lyrics and melodies. Another is to join a group that gets together to perform each other’s songs. Both of these can help you gain self-confidence as a singer and inspire you to create your own songs.
In this article, you will find out more about a popular young singer who got her big break through doing both of these. Her name is Olivia O’Brien and she wants to give you a chance to hear some of her songs too!

Olivia O’Brien has written several catchy love ballads over the past few years.
After graduating with a degree in Fashion Merchandising, Olivia decided to add another layer to her career by launching her own collection of clothing. In May 2017, she launched her brand, OHBEY!
Her first offering was a pair of denim overalls that quickly sold out along with a sweatshirt designed like a onesie (a shirt with pants attached). Since then, she has released various products including t-shirts, sweatshirts, jewelry, and even bed sheets!
Olivia is very passionate about self-care and wellness and often incorporates these concepts into her designs. For example, one of her most popular pieces is an oversized white tee with black lettering that reads “self love”.
She also frequently collaborates with brands to design new styles or give away free merchandise as a way to promote their product.
