Happy Monday everyone ! ❤

Hope all had a super Super Bowl Weekend .
I think I’m the only one who didn’t watch #superbowl2018🏈 haha !

This superbowl reminded me of my childhood memories .. Its nostalgic

I love watching Cricket matches . So mad mad mad on Team India and it’s players .

I used to watch it with my dad and brothers in Television .. Cheering for Indian Batsman ,dancing out of joy when my favorite player hit sixes or fours,whistling to support my favorite team 😀 😀 😀 Those days were Fun ! I could recollect all those days when kids shout for eagles watching superbowl 🙂 🙂 We had a fun weekend .

Today’s Mantra : Set Goals and Crush them !
What’s your goal in life and are you doing anything to reach that goal???? It’s going to be hard but hard is not impossible.  🙂 


The struggle you’re in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow.

Remember 👉 You get what you work for, not what you wish for!!!! Have a blessed day xoxo 💋 ❤

Never Giveup
Make It Happen  👊 I’m with you….

February Inspiration !

2018.jpg

Happy February everyone 

I’ve seen multiple people sharing  the above image this morning and proudly chanting along

“Me too”

“This is so me”

“Yes, let’s start over”

🧐🧐🧐🧐 UMMMMM?!?! 🧐🧐🧐🧐

Images like this are what’s wrong with the world. And they are SO common.

Proclaiming basic shit day in and day out.

“Can’t adult today”

“I can’t even”

“AM coffee, PM wine”

A bunch of average people not hitting their targets and making excuses as to why.

(But find time to make memes and T-shirts about it 🧐)

If you constantly find yourself having to “start over”

Get your life together and set some freaking priorities already.

You start in January like the rest of us who don’t make excuses as to why we are still doing the same thing in 2018 that we were doing in 2017

There are no free trials in life.

JUST A REMINDER FOLKS…. AVERAGE SUCKS !

Have a Fantastic February !

Love, Devi ❤

It’s Just A Bad day Not A Bad Life !

Day 30 of 365

Hey dear mammas

Ever have “one of ‘those’ days? 👏 Right after some super awesome days… ⚠️ Makes ‘one of ‘those days’ more frustrating with the contrast…
Are you facing a bad day ? Things are not right/not going as you planned/not in your favor  ? Tired of mothering kids? Tired of Cleaning house ? Is your face looks like the one in picture now ?? Relax  ❤️

Today might not have been my best day but I definitely didn’t let it be my worst. Slowly learning that only I have the power to control my responses to negative situations.

I’m sharing this because I think it’s important for people to know that in life and especially us Moms and self-employed entrepreneurs….we all have our moments, our disappointments, our times when we can’t fake it and we just need to take a moment .. 💕Take a deep breath, Relax , Have a cup of water or coffee, Listen to music , Call your hubby for some amazing pep talks , Talk to a friend , Have an ice cream or your favorite food  and Also Know this, a bad day can be made better by going to gym,doing yoga/meditation,walking in nature and  bad days are okay! All of our bad days may be defined by different reasons but we must remember the reasons are temporary. I tend to look at situations as ever-lasting causing me to over think about a situation and continue to be halted by the emotions it brings me, but I must remember as these feelings are perfectly okay to have, they are only in place under the situation, which will not last forever. Talk it out, cry it out, do what you need to do to make your bad day, a not so bad day! Remember, All the days are not good but there is something good in every day. Just relax and keep going .. You don’t have to be PERFECT to go FORWARD ..
take-a-shower-wash-off-the-day.jpg

Here’s some Motivation friends 

Remember , even your worst days have only 24 hours.

Not every day can be a good one. Tomorrow will be better .

When you’re feeling shitty, push yourself even harder.

I’m a fighter..I’m a warrior..I’m not a victim .

Life is tough, my darling. But so are you.

The struggle you’re in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow .

Don’t be a spectator, don’t let life pass you by.

You can’t calm the storm..so stop trying .What you can do is calm yourself..The storm will pass .

Always end the day with a positive thought .No matter how hard things were,tomorrow is a fresh opportunity to make it better .

How do you deal with a bad day ? Let the discussion continue in the comments below .

 

Always Love , Devi ❤

Facebook Marketing Tip 

tips.jpg

Day 27 of 365

Facebook Marketing Tip

Facebook is now actively after spammers who publish multiple posts a day and/or share links!

Facebook won’t suspend your account, but they will begin demoting your posts so your content becomes buried in other people’s News Feed (i.e. you won’t get any engagement or eyeballs on your posts).

If you’re posting more than 3 times a day, you are not doing yourself any favor. More than 3 posts in a single day, you’ve officially crossed into spamming territory .

Spend less time posting and more time creating connections .

Have a good day !

Strong is the new pretty !

Day 26 of 365

Hey Beautiful !

Strong is the new pretty . Be strong  . You have survived all bad days and I’m sure you will survive whatever is coming . Relax, It’s just a matter of time . Time heals everything . Trust yourself !

no-bad-days.jpg

Just Remember, It’s just a bad day or bad past And not a bad life .

And I know. I know how difficult it is to move on, to heal. But I promise you — you are going to survive this. You are.
Little by little, a gentle light will begin to replace the darkness. Hope will override some of the shadows. You’ll start to enjoy being with your friends. You might even laugh. You won’t be so afraid of spending time alone, because you won’t be so scared of your own thoughts. You’ll start to trust yourself again, and trust your heart again.

keep-going.jpg
And then you will begin to understand. You’ll playback the memories in your mind, and you’ll actually start to see some of the flaws and glitches, the moments when things were not right. You’ll see the messiness. You’ll begin to understand why all this happened .
You will mourn the loss and the absence of someone you once cared for, but you will finally understand that what happened was meant to happen. And little by little, you will begin to move on. You will know that you deserve more. You will finally know that something better awaits you.
And you will finally learn that everything you need to be able to heal is already inside of you. The courage, the compassion, the bravery and the strength, are all within you. You will learn that being alone does not mean being lonely.
And once you know this, you will begin to heal.

And then, in time, the color will return to your world, and the sparkle will return to your eyes. ❤
And then, in time, you will heal.

Friends ,

Know this , You’re Sexy , Sassy and Strong !

Yes believe me , Sexy Sassy and Strong . No one can break you . The current situation will change and you are the change . Everything happens for a reason . Nothing is permanent and so far you have survived all worst days  . This too shall pass .. Look back your past to only recollect the lessons it taught you . Better things are on its way ! Keep Going !

I’m glad to wind up this post with a good message and loads of love,hugs and positive vibes to all those who need . ❤ ❤ ❤

Top 10 MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. QUOTES

quotes-you-dont-have-to-see.jpg

Today is Martin Luther King jr’s day (15th January) . In 1964, King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his instrumental role in pushing for greater racial equality through nonviolent civil disobedience. Behind his booming voice and poignant appeals for racial healing were his driving values of courage, love, forgiveness, and above all, hope.

Thank you, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the commitment to equality, hope and love is as important for humanity today as it ever was. Thank you for demonstrating how to lead in divisive times. How to be a steadfast for hope and love in the face of hatred. On this day where we celebrate your life, we have to remember what you would have done. You would not let the hate win…you would use love, kindness, and a desire for freedom and equality to overcome. So will we.

Inspiring words as we celebrate MLKJ Day .What do you need to take the first step towards? The best news? You get to build the staircase as you go ❤️ You really don’t need to see the whole staircase, just go!

Inspiring-Martin-Luther-King-Jr.-quotes-Keep-Moving.jpg

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
The time is always right to do what is right.
In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Martin-Luther-King-Jr-Only-in-the-darkness-can-you-see-the-stars.jpg
Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.

Quote-martin-luther- king.jpg
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

martin-luther- king-quotes.jpg
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
We are not makers of history. We are made by history.
The quality, not the longevity, of one’s life is what is important.

Martin Luther King Jr.: Keep Moving

Martin Luther King Jr. gives an inspiring speech about designing your life’s blueprint, and reminds us that whatever you do, you must always keep moving.

Transcript:

“This is the most important and crucial period of your lives, for what you do now and what you decide now at this age may well determine which way your life shall go. The question is, whether you have a proper, a solid, and a sound blueprint. I want to suggest some of the things that should be in your life’s blueprint. Number one in your life’s blueprint should be a deep belief in your own dignity, your own worth and your own somebodiness. Don’t allow anybody to make you feel that you are nobody. Always feel that you count. Always feel that you have worth, and always feel that your life has ultimate significance.

“Secondly, in your life’s blueprint, you must have as a basic principle the determination to achieve excellence in your various fields of endeavor. You’re going to be deciding as the days and the years unfold what you will do in life, what your life’s work will be. Once you discover what it will be, set out to do it and to do it well. Be a bush if you can’t be a tree. If you can’t be a highway, just be a trail. If you can’t be the sun, be a star, for it isn’t by size that you win or you fail, be the best of whatever you are.

“Finally, in your life’s blueprint must be a commitment to the eternal principals of beauty, love, and justice. Well life for none of us has been a crystal stair, but we must keep moving, we must keep going. If you can’t fly, run. If you can’t run, walk. If you can’t walk, crawl, but by all means, keep moving.”(Source:Goalcast)

Failure Is Not Final !

failure-is-not-final.jpg

Happy Morning/Evening  friends    When I got enough confidence, the stage was gone….. When I was sure of Losing, I won……. When I needed People the most, they Left me……. When I learnt to dry my Tears, I found a shoulder to Cry on…… When I mastered the Skill of Hating, people started Loving me from the core of their Heart…… And, while waiting for Light for Hours when I fell asleep, the Sun came out….. That’s LIFE!! No matter what you Plan, you never know what Life has Planned for you…… Success introduces you to the World……. But Failure introduces the World to you……. ……Always be Happy!! Often when we lose Hope and think this is the end… God smiles from above and says, “Relax Sweetheart; It’s just a Bend, not the End..!”   

 

Makar Sankranti Festival | Pongal – Time for a Fresh Start

Happy_bhogi.jpg

Hey Mamas , Today is Sankranti festival in India. Mahar Sankranti is celebrated by Indians across the world in different names Bhogi,Pongal,Bhi,Lohri etc . This is a good chance to teach kids about different traditions and culture . We celebrate festivals to discipline humans . There is always a good lesson hidden in all the Indian festivals . Check out my today’s post about celebrations to teach children a good life lesson.

My daughter Lucky is so excited to wear Indian traditional dress today . I will post pictures of our today’s costumes and table spread later in the evening . 🙂 🙂 We love festivals .. One should never forget their root,culture and traditions wherever we put up in this beautiful World . I’d love to see pictures,posts,write up,links about all your festive celebrations .Please take out time to share your festival pictures and links of your celebrations . Please drop it in the comments below.

Bhogi is the first day of four days Sankranthi celebrations in India.

 On Bhogi, people discard old and derelict things and concentrate on new things causing change or transformation.The theme of Bhogi festival is to throw away and burn old and unwanted stuffs to bring in spiritual bhogam(prosperity) into our house and heart .

On Bhogi day we not only remove unwanted things from our houses, remove unwanted /negative thoughts,emotions and negative people from you & your life . It will make you a #NewYou ..It will help to transform your life . This is a time to reborn as a new person . Time to change your bad attitudes & habits . Just change one bad habit Big or Small !
Remove the old and give space for new beautiful things in life After all its one life which is short Live a happy and positive one .  

The history behind the word ‘Bhogi’ has too many accounts. The widely reckoned etymology to the word ‘Bhogi’ is that the word ‘Bhogam’ entails ‘receiving pleasure from divinity’ and the day offering that divine pleasure is named after ‘Bhogi’.  Another legend accounts that Bhogi Pandigai is celebrated in the name of Lord Indhra (god of rain and thunderstorms).

The celebrations of Bhogi Pandigai usually start early in the morning where homes are usually cleaned and washed. Subsequently, women and girls decorate the houses with beautiful kolam (rangoli) drawn out of rice flour and kaavi (red-oxide). People take head baths on this day as a part of the Bhogi festival celebrations..

 

kolam.jpg

(Are you wondering what’s so colorful in the above picture?! This Kolam/Rangoli.. Women and girl kids draw this colorful Rangoli on the main entrance of every house during festival times . It improves their creativity,colors brings peace to heart and soul.)The next step is performing pujas and offering ‘Bholi’ (battercake with lentil or coconut filling prepared with jaggery) to the almighty as ‘naivedhyam’ (food offered to god as a part of ritual). Later people assemble to light up a large outdoor fire to burn old and unwanted stuffs.Bhogi Pandigai is also celebrated in Andhra Pradesh in a grand manner on the same day as ‘Bhogi’ and as ‘Lohri’ in Punjab and ‘Magh Bihu/Bhogali Bihu’ in Assam.A very delicious and rich meal is prepared and served on plantain leaf on this day .

Pongal O’ Pongal: More than a Harvest Festival

 

Happy-Pongal.jpg

Pongal is a harvest festival dedicated to the Sun God. This is the second day of Sankranthi celebrations. Pongal usually means festivity or celebration; more specifically Pongal is translated as “boiling over” or “overflow.” Pongal is also the name of a sweetened dish of rice boiled with lentils that are ritually consumed on this day. Symbolically, Pongal signifies the gradual heating of the earth as the Sun travels northward toward the equinox.

In this season, you should get rid of all the unnecessary things in your life and begin life afresh. You should make this cleanup an annual event. Even if some cleaning up is done on a daily basis, a few things pile up here and there without you being conscious about it. This piling up is not only of material things in our homes. Also in our minds , in our emotions , in our bodies, and in our consciousness, things pile up. This is the time to clean that up and start afresh in the coming spring, as spring is the best time to start life..

Pongal day is consider as new beginning of all good things. It marks the end of winter . Also it is the festival to respect farmers .

pongal-celebration.png

 

(Are you wondering looking at the above picture?! This is a pot with pongal which is the main dish on this festival.This is a Yummy Sweet in a colorful clay pot 🙂 , Food crops and Sugar cane. Since it is the harvest festival food plays the major role . In our agricultural country Rice and wheat are the major food crops)

happy-makar-sankranti.jpg

Makar Sankranti is also called as Kite festival . Kids enjoy flying colorful kites .

Mattu Pongal is the third day and includes worshiping cattle because it is believed that cattle help give a good harvest. This is in recognition of the importance of cattle to the agrarian community. They are also regarded as sacred animals. The cows are given a good bath and a thorough scrub. They are then adorned and decorated with garlands around their necks and kumkum on their horns and foreheads. They are not given any work on that day and are allowed to graze without much restraint. Ceremonial boiled rice is offered with sweets and sugar cane.

The fourth day is called Kanum or Kani Pongal, which is when many people go on picnic and spend time with families and friends. The Pongal festival also includes exchanging gifts, dancing, and buffalo-taming contests. Single women seeking good husbands observe this day.

I’d love to see pictures,posts,write up,links about all your festive celebrations .Please take out time to share your festival pictures and links of your celebrations . Please drop it in the comments below.Have a fantastic day !!

No Rain No Flowers

no-rain-no-flowers

Happy Morning Everyone !

Dear Mamas , How are you all ? Are you struggling in life ? Are you finding any hardship ? Is your day bad ?

To whoever’s reading this,you may be struggling right now,but hold on,don’t give up!! Your current situation,is not your final destination.. You are not in a storm you are in a transition.I think that sometimes when things don’t always go as  planned or how we may want them to go I feel that facing obstacles only makes us stronger.. That we’re able to grow & learn through the darker / rainy days, so I just wanted to share this quote as it really spoke to me in a deeper way, helped me through today & also expresses my sunshine state of mind. When the going gets tough just remember, no rain, no flowers .Especially as an entrepreneur, but in ALL areas in life… setbacks equal a learning opportunity, not failure. .

No Rain No Flowers

No Rain No Rainbows

No mud. No lotus.

No pain. No gain.

No practice. No outcome

Truth is, all of us will go through hardship, to varying degrees, at some point in our lives. History tells us that majority of the the greatest personalities all went through hardship on their way to legitimate success. Without that rain no flower will grow.

Here is a reminder to all my Women Entrepreneur friends,”

With struggles and challenges, there comes successes and accomplishments. Without failure we wouldn’t learn as much and success wouldn’t taste as good .Without hardship in our past we wouldn’t be able to inspire, help and empower people who are going through the same thing we did. Keep Moving ”

Understand one thing clearly,

“There is not a great victory, without a painful battle…” Without tough times you’d never appreciate the good! Life is a mix of high and lows, valley and mountains, sunny days and storm and that what makes it gorgeous!  Without the hard parts we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the beautiful parts as much.A good reminder for those not so perfect days. We all have them. There is no way of living life with a happiness filter but you must choose happiness every day. Some days are harder than others, but I needed this reminder today. Learn to shine with or without the sun. Either way, you’ll be just fine. Life doesn’t always go the way you plan it. There will be ups. There will be downs. But despite what it may currently look like; remember that all things are in purpose, on purpose! If you’re currently going through a season where life doesn’t seem to be going your way. I’d like to remind you that in order for the flowers to blossom, they must first withstand the rain. It’s the seasons where life seems to just be pouring down on us, where the most beauty comes from. Don’t run away from rain! On the contrary, embrace it! When the storms pass, you’ll see it was all worth it. Until that day comes, just remember – No Rain, No Flowers! pour down and I’ll bloom. . You have to go through your storm in order to grow stronger, more beautiful. I’ve had lots of rainy days and I’ve had days full of flowers, sunshine and great days. Even a bad day have 24 hours. So I know better than anyone it won’t rain forever and I’ll see the flowers again.

It’s not easy to see the positive when we are in the midst of a storm, but there is also a positive side and the storm never lasts!

Learn to embrace the storms in your life

Love Always , Devi

Let Go !

“Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go.” Hermann Hesse

Today, let go of some of the negative thinking, patterns, or people who consistently weigh you down. You’ll find it much easier to rise, rise above, and reach new goals.

Much Love , Devi

Your time is too precious.

Dear Mamas , Take care of yourself first so that you can take care of kids . We cant pour from an empty glass . Give yourself number one priority .

It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary.

Much Love , Devi xoxo

Don’t Give Up !

I- want- to- see- what -happens- if- I- don't -give -up

Good Morning/Evening my loves ! Super Saturday to you all !!

I want to see what happens if I don’t give up .

Challenges force us to dig deeper within ourselves and find a level of strength we didn’t know was there. Never give up on yourself , you’re a MASTERPIECE in the making✨✨✨✨✨Shout out to all those that may be struggling just now, please remember that this too shall pass and you are not alone,because giving up is not the only solution , there are 1000s of doors to one question! All these struggles are temporary . The Sun will rise and we will try again .Each day is a new beginning, a chance to try again. Start with good thoughts. If it doesn’t work today. Tomorrow is a new day to try again. Don’t give up . Never Quit !

Yes , Don’t give up .. the best is yet to come ! ❤

Love Always , Devi ❤

Comparison is the thief of joy !

comparison-is-the.jpg

Hey Lovely Mamas !

Hope you all are enjoying a great weekend !

I’ve some questions on my mind , Do you compare your children with other kids ? Do you compare your small business with others ? Do you compare your life with others ? Do you compare your blog with others? Do you compare yourself to others ?

Most of the time we are comparing ourselves to things we see on other people’s social media. But guess what? We are seeing everyone’s highlight reel and comparing it to our everyday reality. Comparison is easy, tempting, and available with social media we have at our fingertips . But life is not meant to be compared, it’s meant to be enjoyed. Comparison is the thief of joy .

Remember, Your kids are unique,they have different skills,talents,knowledge Each one is blessed differently . God has created  each one of us with unique skills and inner power . Stop comparing your children with others . Kids may feel insecure and comparison develops inferior complex and jealousy among children . Encourage them to be Unique .

Are you focusing on your weaknesses and putting yourself down? It’s easy to doubt yourself and feel that I’m nothing special. Negative self-talk generates negative energy. Even if you don’t ever say out loud what you think about yourself, people can sense it on an energetic level. Therefore, the negative self-talk will keep your dreams out of reach, hence blocking your success.Comparison is the dream killer .

Comparing ourselves to others and trying to live up to others expectations, is a thief of dreams. Every person’s journey is his and hers alone to decide what that looks like. Do what makes you happy and what makes your heart sing and invest in the discovery of what you uniquely bring to the world.

Let’s let go of the comparing and don’t let ourselves get caught in the trap of comparison. Why compare yourself to someone when you were uniquely created?Go be YOU!

Your story is unique & different and not worthy of comparison . Don’t compare your chapter one to someone else’s chapter 30 . Do you find that you compare your WORST with other’s BEST on social media? DON’T DO IT.  We all have flaws, but that’s not usually what we see online. People like to show their best. Focus on the awesome parts about you… “the good angles” … and just compare yourself only to the girl you were yesterday. That’s your competition. 

“Stop comparing yourself.” Do not compare yourself to others my friends. We are all on different journeys, we all have different histories. In this world, there is a huge tendency to compare ourselves to others. Let’s spend less time comparing ourselves to others and being jealous of what we think we lack and spend more time being grateful for what we have, especially during this wonderful holiday season. You are all amazing, you are all beautiful, you are all wonderful. Focus on you, focus on your family and spend more time bringing yourself up and not down. We are all here to learn from one another. We’re all unique, which means we bring something different to the table just by being ourselves. Let’s enjoy all that uniqueness… in yourself AND in others. Happy Saturday my friends! 

Love Always , Devi

Instagram Lets You Follow Hashtags

INSTAGRAM GETS MORE #INTERESTING

The social network now lets you follow hashtags

Today, Instagram is introducing a new way to interact with hashtags. You can now “follow” a hashtag the same way you would follow an account. Instagram’s algorithms will then pick and choose some of the highlights from that collection and surface them in your main feed. It’s a fundamental change to one of the largest social media platforms in the world, elevating your interest in adorable dogs or expensive automobiles to equal status with your friends and family.

For those concerned about privacy, a note: The hashtags you follow are visible to anyone on Instagram who checks out your profile. It doesn’t look like there’s a way to turn this off, though if your profile is set to private, then only your followers will be able to see the hashtags you follow.

5 Super Inspiring Quotes To Fire Up Your Career Mojo

Do you know what is mitochondria?

If you quickly shuffle back to Class 8 biology, you will know – mitochondria are the powerhouse of cells. All the energy is generated there. All the fire within you, is generated there. And that’s what some super inspiring quotes are – The mitochondria of inspiration. Though, to not make it sound geeky, I will stick to the word ‘powerhouse’.

Below are 5 super inspiring quotes for you, if your Career Mojo regularly feels confused:-

  1. “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” – Mark Twain
  2. “When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.” – Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich
  3. “The difference between great people and everyone else is that great people create their lives actively, while everyone else is created by their lives, passively waiting to see where life takes them next. The difference between the two is the difference between living fully and just existing. “- Michael E. Gerber 
  4. “The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that our aim is too low and we reach it.” – Michaelangelo  
  5. “I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.” – Stephen Covey

Use whatever it takes to keep your Mojo fire burning.

One Life ! Do it very well.

Love Always !

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF HASHTAGS!

Devi-venkatesan.png

Instagram Tips

Hashtags are SO awesome and useful! If you are trying to find your LIFER ( also known as the people who you enjoy serving, spending time with, and doing things with, they’re just like you) TAKE ADVANTAGE OF HASHTAGS! Connect with like minded individuals that way!

Be creative and specific with your hashtags. Using super popular hashtags is useless because your photo will get lost in the feed within minutes!

Avoid using overly popular hashtags .Use specific hashtags to reach the right people. General hashtags will reach spammy followers .If you’re selling a coffee called “California Coffee” , people that don’t know about California Coffee won’t be specifically searching for the hashtag #californiacoffee . Use hashtags that your potential customers/lifers would be using/searching for!

We can only have 30 hashtags on Instagram or it won’t let you post them.

As you know, I am a Facebook ninja and Linkedin sourcing expert . Been using these social media platforms for years for recruitment . I’ve been using Instagram for just 3 months now . I am learning tips and tricks of using it from an expert to promote business.

Hope this will be of some use to you .

Love Always , Devi
