HOW TO GROW ORGANICALLY ON INSTAGRAM

Digital Feature: The Preview App

I’ll just start by saying that Instagram is my favourite social platform! For starters, it’s a great place to discover new brands and for people to discover my online business organically as well.

But here’s the thing, it’s hella hard work. It requires a lot of time and effort to build an organic Instagram following and a successful feed that reflects your brand and business well.

This past year I’ve more than tripled my Instagram following but if you look at my feed (@happylittlehummingbird_) you’ll see that I have a pretty humble following. In fact, it’s pretty small compared to others who’ve started where I was this time last year, but for me, this isn’t a race…and it shouldn’t be for you either.

HOW LEAVING MY DREAM JOB LED ME TO MY TRUE CALLING

Digital Feature: The Mindful Mag

I’ll never forget the day I landed my dream job.

It was October 2011 when I got the news that Human Resources was looking for a new team member to start an employee onboarding program for the large oil and gas company I was working for at the time. To my shock and disbelief, they wanted me to be one of their two team members to design and develop the new program. To say I was ecstatic is an understatement.

For weeks I walked around as if I had won the lottery. Everything about the position was exactly what I wanted and desired in a career. After five long years of trying to ‘make it’, I felt like I had finally arrived. However, my excitement and enthusiasm for my dream career were short lived.
