Today we’re talking about something you either love, or love to hate… Instagram. Whether you use the app to grow your business, build a following, or stay connected to your friends and family, you’re probably scrolling and double tapping on the daily. You probably already know that I’ve been on Instagram FOREVER (my 8 year insta-versary was in October), but I wanted to bring in my friend and Instagram growth guru, Isabella Silverio to break down the strategies and hacks for Instagram success. You might know her as Isabella Guava, and she is a content enthusiast, social media master and full-time business consultant for her company, Guava Empowerment. She’s been involved in the launches of 10+ global startups since the age of 18, and her expertise spans from the tech, fitness, personal branding and influencer marketing industries. Her passion of empowering entrepreneurially-minded women is a driving force for her and her business, and I cannot wait for you to hear her story and learn all of her Instagram expertise.
