They say photos you share online speak volumes. My Instagram account serves many purposes. It is a form of self-expression. Instagram allows me to share snippets of my travels and everyday life with friends. 

In travel, I find inspiration. The excitement and life experiences that happen when you travel are unlike anything else. These moments are transformative and they take us out of our element and gives us a renewed feeling reminding us of the beauty of life and world in which we live. I always make it a point to travel to at least one new destination every year.

Instagram is an important platform to promote my brand. No matter what type of business you are running, you have to make your business active and Instagram is a great way to connect to your market. You are your own brand.
