This episode is all about the delicate balancing act between how we're perceived online and how that perception influences the way we interact with people. In the world of Instagram, sharing about yourself online can bring about a sense of intimacy with your followers -- which is a good thing! But sometimes that intimacy can lead to situations where you feel like your boundaries are being crossed or a follower/potential customer is asking too much of you. How do you handle that?
Managing relationships is the big theme of this episode. Specifically we talk about:
- Approaching people you admire online for advice/collaboration
- Community versus competition with other creatives in your field
- Copycats and potential copying dilemmas
- Balancing how you’re perceived online with saying how you really feel
