I felt completely overwhelmed. I was following some of the most kickass people and inspirational accounts on Instagram, yet I felt less inspired than ever before. After wallowing in the doubts and insecurities for several months, I decided it was time for a change. In this episode, I share why I decided to do an Instagram purge and how I went from following over 1,100 people to following less than 200. Feeling overwhelmed or uninspired by Instagram? This episode is for you, sweet dreamer.


"I started with over 1,100 and by the time I was done with the Instagram purge, I was following less than 200."
