Thursday, July 4th, 2024

Every now and then I start seeing a flood of people “taking a break” from Instagram, and I truly believe it’s not the app that’s a problem—it’s how we use it.

Overwhelm happens to all of us, so instead of trying to prevent it, you can take a deep breath and respond in a different way. We need social media for our businesses, so let’s figure out a way to make peace with it.

Let’s chat.
