Nowadays, bloggers are almost as popular as actors. They just have a completely different target audience. These people become opinion leaders through self-promotion on Instagram, YouTube, and other social networks.
Bloggers like to show off how well they live: flying in business class, buying branded clothes, relaxing at expensive resorts, eating luxury food, and much more.
One such Instagram celebrity, Naomi Isted, is a fashionable journalist and TV presenter that can boast of almost 100k followers. Her work makes her travel on average once every 6 weeks.
Her husband and two children, a 9-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old son, often accompany her during her trips. But, surprisingly, Naomi chooses the business class for herself and the economy for her family. Do you think it's unfair? Wait until you hear her explanation. The woman has many reasons for such a decision.
First, she prefers business class solely because she needs peace and quiet to work: write scripts, make content plans, and much more that requires concentration and solitude. Secondly, since she also depends on her voice as a speaker, she doesn’t want to catch a cold in economy class from possibly sick passengers.
As a presenter, the main thing for me is preserving my voice and not catching bugs or colds from nearby passengers who could be in a very close proximity if travelling economy.
Thirdly, there is a moral and educational reason. Naomi believes that her children are still too small to understand the degree of privilege that business class gives; they won’t be able to appreciate it, so she thinks there is no need to overpay. Moreover, she also admitted that her son was too active, so she wouldn’t want people who paid for business class to face his bad behavior.
I believe that instilling gratitude and a work ethic into your children is crucial as a parent. They haven't worked anywhere near hard enough to afford that.
In this way, Naomi explains that people should travel in first class only when they can financially afford to enjoy the fruits of their work. What do you think about this? Is it a good explanation? Share your opinions in the comments!
