Welcome to another ‘week in the life of a travelling entrepreneur’!
This week we’ve been in Maui and it’s been a busy one!
A 12 hour day exploring the road to Hana, a sunrise hike, a submarine experience, a snorkel trip, a Luau & surfing lessons!
And we still had time to enjoy some beers on the beach watching the sun go down!
We may have been active but I tell you, I don’t want to be going near any weighing scales anytime soon!
Tacos, fajitas, fish & chips, nachos! Come on America, even the salads are 1000 calories each!
As I write this we’re off to the big island & I’ve decided to become a carbarian for the rest of the trip.
Step away from the carbs Jo!!! 😂
So Hawaii is definitely the land of the turtles. I have never seen so many, on the beaches, swimming past in the sea, while snorkelling etc.
What’s amazing is their complete nonchalance for humans.
They just seem to go about their business and completely ignore the fact we’re there!
I was quite nervous snorkelling close to a beach which was home to an entire group of pretty big green sea turtles.
I didn’t want to swim into one, but believe me they’re much more agile than us in the water and just swim round you!
So I had a very exciting experience this week when my latest MIHM episode saw over 2.2k views!
Thank you so much to everyone in the FB group for your comments & support.
Unfortunately after checking the analytics, it seems the video was shown as a ‘suggested video’ to people watching a ‘vivo phone ad’. Therefore on average about 2k views only watched 45secs of the video. Booo 🙁
They don’t know what they’re missing out on! 😂
Not to worry, this time next year it’ll be a million views! (Get it people from the UK!) 😂
However it has made me think about my MIHM vids.
Last week I talked about reducing the quantity of my content to focus more on quality & promotion and moving forward I really want to work on providing super valuable MIHM vids.
I already have a list of great topics to cover in the coming weeks / months but if you have any burning questions you’d like me to cover in a future episode do please let me know in the comments below or at anytime in the group.
No updates this week other than to let you know (if you don’t know already), IGTV’s max video limit is 10 minutes.
If you don’t know IGTV is a separate app to IG but connects directly with your IG account by automatically publishing a preview of your video plus your captions & hashtags to your IG feed.
You can upload a video directly to your IG feed but that limit is 60secs & if you want to upload a video to your story the limit is 15secs. Although if you have a longer video you can use an app called ‘Long Story’ to splice a longer vid into short 15 sec clips.
So IGTV is like YouTube for IG but as I said max limit is 10 mins. Don’t sit there uploading and getting rejected all day only to discover your vid is too long! 😜
That’s it for this week. Have just arrived on the big Island for 9 days, so looking forward to exploring the volcano! 🌋
In the meantime…

Have a great weekend 😁
