Memorable Quotes:

  • “Of course you can take great photos, it is instant—Instagram, but then having a message behind it, having a purpose, relating to people… I saw how I could use it for my business.”
  • “A lot of people struggle with that balance of you want to look polished but you want to be authentic, you want to put out great content but you don’t want to be too scheduled or curated.”
  • “You’re getting two people when you have a great photo and a great caption.”
  • “The reason behind using videos…is that people get to know you before they meet you……they know you, they like you, they trust you.”
