Nine Books I Read and Loved This Year

December 26, 2017

If you’ve been following along here this last year you know I went on a BIG Brené Brown kick. I ended up reading all but one of her books this year and loved each and everyone of them. She crossed my path just when I needed her most, and helped me through a number of challenges as we traveled this summer. Without her books I’m honestly not sure where I’d be, or for that matter without any of the books you see here. I figured I would share my reading list from 2017 in case you also have some of those handy Amazon gift cards burning a hole in your pocket too! Click each image to shop the book.

My Advice on Creating an Instagram Strategy

November 1, 2017

I had a conversation today with a close friend about building out his Instagram strategy, what advice I might have and where I believe the platform is heading. I’m the first to admit that I’m not holding the answers to much when it comes to Instagram and that I have no idea what the future holds, but experience has definitely taught me a thing or two.
