In this week’s episode, I chat with Barbora about her journey to massive Instagram success, the struggles that came along with that massive growth, and how it led her to break the rules in order to regain her creativity. We talked about:

  • How the creativity of Instagram and blogging helped Barbora come back from a really dark time.
  • The struggle that came with her Instagram account growing so quickly and how it led her to break the “rules”
  • The privilege of being able to take a break and take creative risks online
  • Creating content purely because your audience will like it versus finding creative fulfillment
  • The problem with most Instagram advice out there
  • The importance of getting off Instagram in order to grow your Instagram following
  • Why growth is not always a good thing when it comes to social media
  • Whether the concept of providing “value” online is overrated
  • The misguided, damaging messages that are sent to influencers

And more. Listen here or on Apple PodcastsSpotify or anywhere you usually get your podcasts.
