I love learning through podcasts. It started as a way to pass the time in a 2+ hour roundtrip commute (in a previous life) and still remains one of my favorite inspirational tools. In order to help clients and readers make the most of their own time, my #EntrepreneursPodcastClub anthologizes several podcasts with similar topics, curating like-episodes specific to a theme that's top of mind.
Oh Instagram. It's the most popular social media platform in the English-speaking world. It's completely changed the way we behave on the internet. It's given so many the opportunity to create a life, a living, connections, and have profound impact. It gets a lot of bad press-- about the comparison game, about illegitimacy and bots, about it's impact on people and their mental health. That being said, it's a TOOL. A hugely popular and powerful tool for so many to reach into niche and diverse communities, to make the world a bit smaller.

Key Takeaway Points
It's okay to take a break-- you won't become irrelevant. Sometimes sharing less and bringing deeper alignment to your posts grows your following faster
If you reach out to someone for a collaboration and they say, "no," it doesn't mean no forever. Keep producing aligned content and the right people will notice and act
Repetition is vital. We can't assume our followers know everything about us (including information in past posts that they have access to). Keep reminding them of how you can show up for them, what your offerings are, and why you do what you do.
