Stephynie is speaking with Maayan Gordon, who is a famous Tik TOK glassblower. She has overcome so much adversity in her life from a gas explosion to being homeless for a few months. She's used her incredible drive and entrepreneurial skills to start three of her own companies. Today, she still owns and operates the glass-blowing studio Monkey Boy Art. In addition to posting on her Tik ToK channels with close to 2.4 million followers, she is also using her consulting services to help other companies tell their own stories through social media.
