Introduce your self to The Skinny Confidential viewers. Inform us every part!

Parker Miller: My title is Parker and I’m the Mission & Operations Supervisor for TSC! I used to be born & raised in Baltimore, however have lived throughout. I’ve one older sister and my household is extraordinarily shut — I’d decide hanging out with them over doing the rest.

After graduating from Tulane College in New Orleans, I moved to Nashville to work at a expertise company within the nation music trade, then moved to Los Angeles to work within the leisure trade. Proper earlier than the pandemic hit, I took a job working for Michael Bosstick which in the end led me to working for Lauryn at The Skinny Confidential.

It has been so cool attending to see the entire totally different sides of their companies — I actually do be taught one thing new day by day from them. My character sort is an ISFJ-T —  I’m fiercely loyal, love serving to others, and although I like to hangout with household/associates, I must be alone to recharge. I presently reside with my boyfriend and hopefully can persuade him to get a pug/frenchie/bulldog — I like any canine with a squishy face. 

What’s a ‘day within the life’ for you?

PM: I attempt to get up on the sooner facet between 5-5:30am (though most days I don’t get off the bed till like 5:45am). I prefer to get a exercise in earlier than the gymnasium will get crowded. I like to run however I additionally like MWH pilates and Chloe Ting HIIT exercises. Then I bathe & get modified — I attempt to placed on cute outfits day by day – it makes me really feel extra put collectively and able to tackle the day.

I’ve just lately converted from ingesting espresso to having a matcha latte, so I’ll often make that and browse from Ryan Vacation’s The Day by day Stoic or atone for private emails and information earlier than leaping into work.

As Katie mentioned in her put up, no two days are the identical. I do every part from model partnerships, to researching and scheduling company for the podcast, to working with the crew on product and co-brand advertising & launch methods, and every part in between! Issues are often persistently busy, however I attempt to bear in mind to rise up and stroll round all through the day — I’m in determined want of a treadmill or strolling pad to go beneath my desk.

I’m extraordinarily type-A so all of my meals are prepped forward of time so I can simply pull them out with out having to consider it or prepare dinner something throughout the day. As a result of I make money working from home, I attempt my greatest to place all of my work associated issues away on the finish of the day & take a while away from screens. At night time I often learn or journal and I am going to mattress SUPER early — like I’m in mattress at 8:30 or 9pm, generally even earlier.

If somebody needs to work with an influencer, how do you advocate they go about it?

PM: One thing I’ve realized from Michael & Lauryn (try their episode with Robert Greene & Ryan Vacation on mentors) is that you must strategy the state of affairs by providing one thing. When you’ve got an influencer you’re dying to work for, analysis and be taught as a lot as you’ll be able to about them and the trade, and discover methods the place you’ll be able to add worth to their crew. Then, attain out each approach you’ll be able to — ship chilly emails — no matter it takes. 

What’s it like working with an influencer? Give us a behind-the-scenes breakdown!

PM: It’s thrilling being on this facet of it! I adopted TSC for some time, by no means imagining I’d find yourself working for Lauryn, and it’s actually cool to see the center and soul that goes into creating each single factor.

I’m additionally very a lot on the enterprise facet of issues, so it’s actually enjoyable attending to work with creatives — I’m continually in awe of what they give you from packaging, to graphics, to why we use this as an alternative of that when creating merchandise…each single tiny element has been seemed over and chosen rigorously. It’s a distinct a part of your mind and I really feel like I get to develop it increasingly every day as I be taught from our crew. 

What’s your favourite life hack?

PM: WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN. I all the time have pen & paper close by and the notes part on my telephone is frightening. I write each single factor down. I’m continually doing 100 issues directly (actually engaged on single-tasking but it surely’s exhausting!) and I do know myself properly sufficient to know I can’t bear in mind each element, so I write each thought down. It has saved me numerous occasions.

Give us all of your time administration suggestions!

PM: I plan forward for every part. Having the ability to anticipate issues which may come up and addressing them forward of time has actually helped me get forward in my private {and professional} life. I meal prep, I attempt to plan out my errands, and so on. in order that I’m utilizing my time and vitality correctly and being as environment friendly and productive as doable.

I’ve bizarre OCD tendencies that associate with this — I’ve programs in place for cooking, cleansing, organizing, and so on., that permit me to multi-task and get probably the most accomplished within the shortest period of time….my mind works in bizarre methods! I additionally use a calendar for every part. I even have ongoing to do lists that I’ll most likely simply retaining including to till I die. I’m very strict with my group & timing routines — I envy people who find themselves extra versatile.

What are 3 enjoyable info about you?

PM: I’m extraordinarily curious by nature – I Google each single query that pops into my head. I like studying new issues (most likely why I’ve listened to HIM & HER for years), which is a big purpose why I like our TSC crew — we’re all inspired to ask questions & problem the established order day by day.

I grew up enjoying squash (the game) — my mother was my highschool coach and she or he would all the time present as much as our matches in like 6 inch stilettos. She is certainly probably the most modern coach I’ve had.

I lived in Paris (within the seventeenth arrondissement).

What’s your favourite wholesome snack?

PM: Is chocolate wholesome? JK. I’ve a bizarre obsession with mustard — ever since I used to be in faculty, I’ve all the time beloved child carrots dipped in mustard (yellow or dijon – doesn’t matter). It sounds gross, however I’ve turned lots of people onto it! 

What’s your favourite magnificence product & why?

PM: Sunscreen! My dad is a mohs (pores and skin most cancers) surgeon and I’ve had amelanotic melanoma, so I’m VERY strict with sunscreen. I’ve tried all of them. Proper now, I like the La Roche-Posay tinted sunscreen for my face, and Supergoop for my physique.

I’ll use something that’s accessible although. I additionally love Alastin HydraTint ProMineral as a result of it feels such as you’re placing protection on, but it surely’s actually gentle and has SPF in it. Additionally I’m naturally oily, and these items goes on matte for me. I used to make enjoyable of my dad for carrying solar safety clothes (he wears lengthy UPF pants, lengthy sleeve UPF shirt, and an insanely massive wide-brimmed hat when he’s outdoor along with sunscreen), however now I put on it as properly.

I like Lily Pulitzer, Coolibar, Mott50, and Solumbra. I’d like to design my very own UPF clothes someday as properly. Take this as a pleasant reminder to go get your pores and skin checked – pores and skin most cancers is the most typical most cancers of all. I’m truthful and used to go each 6 months, however after the most cancers analysis, I went each 8-10 weeks, and now being 2 years out, I’m again to going each 4-6 months.

& on that notice, I exploit Tanceuticals face tanner and Bali Physique or Loving Tan for my physique.

What’s your morning routine & nighttime routine?

PM: My morning routine includes transferring my physique (if I wait till later within the day, I’m often too slowed down with work stuff and discover excuses to skip), manifesting (my associates make enjoyable of me for this however I like manifesting & engaged on imaginative and prescient boards — I manifest on walks lots), organizing and cleansing as much as put together for the day, and studying one thing — often within the morning it’s non-fiction, but when it’s a guide I’m actually having fun with, then I’ll learn fiction too.

I don’t have an intricate skincare routine — I often simply wash my face (prescription sulfur wash within the morning, Laniege Multi-Deep Clear Cleanser or Tula Cult Cleanser at night time), ice roll with THE SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL HOT MESS ICE ROLLER (ps — guys love this too!) put sunscreen on, and a few mascara (generally eyeliner too). My lashes are BLONDE so I’ve to have one thing there or I appear like Schmiegal from Lord of the Rings.

What’s a guide, podcast & useful resource that you simply advocate?

PM: OBVIOUSLY HIM & HER is my favourite podcast. I additionally love The Blonde Information (one other present throughout the Pricey Media household). I take heed to any/all true crime podcasts — my sister and I each take heed to them to go to sleep lol. 

I learn a LOT. (We didn’t have cable rising up, in order that was my solely choice.) A few of my favourite fiction authors are Elena Ferrante, Michael Ondaatje, Pat Conroy, and Laura Lippman. For non-fiction, I like Deepak Chopra, Robert Greene, Ryan Vacation, Viktor Frankl, Eckhart Tolle, and Ron Shapiro (nice for negotiating & mindset). My two current reads are Hidden Valley Highway by Robert Kolker and One Italian Summer time by Rebecca Serle.
