Five Simple Steps to Finding your Niche on Instagram®

Instagram® is a world of opportunity and a platform on which inspiration abounds! I love following accounts that inspire me to grow, learn, and take notice of the world around me.

Whether it’s beautiful beaches under a scorched sunset or sage advice from an Eastern philosopher, my Insta feed is compelling and rich with content I love.

I started to grow my business on Instagram® exactly a year ago. I've got to tell you, I've made tons and tons of mistakes along the way. In this post, I'm going to walk you through 5 mistakes I made and how you can avoid them.

Starting your business is daunting, and starting to grow your business on Instagram® is even more daunting. I remember the moment I decided it was time to hop on to Instagram®. I had been on freelancing sites for a while, and I realized it wasn't helping me get the traction I needed to sustain myself financially.
