EPISODE 504 - The BIGGEST Mistake You Can Make Growing Your Instagram ❌

Today I’m not going to tell you what to do. I’m going to tell you what NOT to do.


Specifically we’re going to be talking about what you don’t want to do while growing your Instagram account.


Basically I’m going to help you learn to avoid the “fuck-ups” I’ve made in the past.


The last few days have been super weird. Yesterday around 1:00 p.m. I looked at my Instagram and my following had grown by around 700. I said, “What the fuck?”


I couldn’t figure out what it was. Maybe I had a Reel going viral. Those of you who are in my course or who have been following my podcast know that I really push that you should be posting regularly on Instagram Reels. It can lead to super viral content, and super viral content can lead to a lot of followers.


So, I went and investigated all of my Reels. And I do have some Reels that are doing really well, including one that recently hit 500,000 views. But I hadn’t gotten an influx of followers from that.


After a while, I kind of forgot about it and went about my day.


Then I checked my phone a few hours later and suddenly I’m up by 1,500 more followers! Again I said, “What the fuck?”


So I dug in a bit deeper and started looking at some of these new followers’ pages. A lot of them were from Central and South America. Countries like Brazil, Mexico, and other Spanish and Portuguese speaking nations.

I’ve Been There. I’ve Done That. Now Learn with Me.


I know all the ins and outs of online fitness coaching. I’ve made mistakes and I’ve had successes. But I’ve never given up. That’s how I was able to open my own gym and start an online coaching business that has not only brought me success, but also benefited over 600 other online fitness coaches.


I love to share my knowledge. So, when you work with me, you learn with me.


I’m ready to help you shed those 9-5 shackles and enjoy the freedom, satisfaction, and yes, money, you’ll get from being an online fitness coach.
