Work Hard Mom Hard

Jun 20, 2019

Kia is an abstract artist and mother of two little boys in leafy Surrey in the UK. In 2016, she started sharing her paintings online with an intention to learn how to use Instagram to reach potential customers. She experienced such rapid success; followers began filling her DM’s with requests for her advice as to how they could do the same. So she became what she calls, an Accidental Insta-Marketeer. Wanting to help, she started teaching other creative entrepreneurs how to market themselves on Instagram via tips on her feed and digital eBooks.
