Corrie Yee talks about mentoring the next generation and teaching young girls about women’s empowerment through her agency Fierce.

Behind all the glitz and glamor, the modeling industry can be a tough world to be a part of. Corrie Yee’s journey to becoming a model was not easy and came with countless lessons to be learned. As a teenager, Corrie found inspiration from the models in her favorite magazines. She grew up in a small town but always dreamt of being on the cover of a magazine and making a name for herself. At 17, Corrie moved out of her hometown in hopes of making her dreams a reality.

Breaking into the industry seemed almost impossible to Corrie. As a young girl from a small town, Corrie feared that she wouldn’t be taken seriously. Corrie struggled with people telling her she was going to fail and would never make it big. She quickly learned to deal with denial and used rejection as fuel to keep pushing towards her goals. Now, Corrie prides herself on being a carefree spirit, and through practicing ignoring the haters, Corrie has become unstoppable. She constantly pushes boundaries, immerses herself in new experiences, and sets goals for herself.

“I truly found happiness when I learned to not care what other people think,” said Corrie. “Once you learn to master that, life’s just amazing. Freeing yourself from that mental prison is something that’s really life-changing.”

Now weaning out of the modeling world, Corrie is shifting her focus towards mentoring aspiring models through her agency Fierce. Through Fierce, Corrie wants to teach girls the importance of safety and self-respect in the industry. After learning from her own experiences, Corrie is passionate about helping girls kick start their careers and work towards their goals. She highlights the importance of doing research before working with new photographers, stylists, or agencies so that you never put yourself in a dangerous or uncomfortable situation. Corrie aims to inspire her girls to stay true to their morals and never let themselves get sucked into the wrong crowds. By creating a safe space for aspiring models to express themselves and feel comfortable, she’s building a community of strong and confident women.

“I want to leave a mark in this industry, I want to be known for helping and mentoring people,” said Corrie.

Corrie’s love for traveling pushes her to expand her successes internationally and teach women across the globe about women empowerment. As an extrovert, Corrie loves having the freedom to work with people who inspire her. Her carefree nature paired with her heart of gold makes her

the ultimate boss. As Corrie continues to build her empire and leave her mark, there’s no doubt that she’s becoming an inspiration to women across the nation

Jobs That May be Under Your Radar

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor, the average worker can expect to sit nearly 45% of the work day. On the surface, that doesn’t sound so bad. However, what isn’t considered is the effect that having a college degree has on that percentage. 

Despite lengthy research, there simply isn’t much data on how much people tend to sit at work if they have a college degree versus not having one.  However, looking at specific occupations does show data. 

Jobs including accounting, business, and tech tend to lead to workers sitting anywhere from 70-80% of the time. 

In fact, with an exception to a few areas where a degree is required, most of the post-college workforce appears to be in a position where they spend most of their day at a desk. 

For some, this is not an issue. For many others, it can lead to increased stress, dissatisfaction at work, weight gain, and a repetition of tasks that get old after a few days. So why do people continue to work in these environments? Part of it may be our tendency to follow the crowd, and college programs often funnel their graduates to these kinds of jobs. 

What if someone wants to break away from the norm? There are certainly options, and here are just three of them. 

Coaching

Coaching a sport can be one of the most satisfying and productive jobs that exist. On top of the satisfaction of helping athletes improve their skills, depending on the coach, it can also serve as a workout and a way to stay active. 

This option can be especially good in unique sports such as rowing, pole vault, or Irish dance. Many potential clients/athletes may not know about these opportunities, but once word gets out, there may be a lot of interest. Moving up in these specific fields is much easier than trying to go the route of a football or basketball coach. If a rowing team is looking for a coach, and you’ve got the experience, you may end up in a small candidate pool for a great job. 

Run an Excursion

Everyone loves excursions while on vacation. It’s a market that’s growing every year, and with the right equipment and skills, it’s very possible to have success here. The best part is that almost no matter where you go, the market will be there. 

In a tourist area like Orlando, Florida, so many people go that despite a lot of excursion options, opportunity is still there. On the flip side, in a small town in Kansas, the market may be small, but there won’t be any competition. 

The key is to be unique. If close to a desert, a dune buggy adventure will catch a lot of people’s attention. If there are already a lot of those excursions available, have a romantic candlelight dinner under the stars. The possibilities are endless. If you decide that you want an excursion that will keep you up on your feet and active, that’s totally up to you. 

Start a Business

Starting a company can be stressful and overwhelming, especially with zero experience. One key is to utilize resources and not pretend that you know how to do everything. Just as you wouldn’t have a plumber frame a house, a dentist perform brain surgery, or an engineer file your taxes, running everything for your business alone will likely not be successful.  

Odds are, you may be able to do the business part, but utilizing resources for other areas can help make a business successful. 

What does this have to do with not sitting all day? Similar to the excursion idea, starting your own business means choosing your hours, and the work style. You may decide that 7-10 AM is a great time to do all the paperwork and desk-related tasks, take a break from 10-11 AM, and then spend 11-4 PM doing active tasks related to the business. You can decide to work late at night and keep the mornings open. 

With few exceptions, a self-business allows you to work when, where, and how you want.
