This is it! We’re sticking a fork in season 1 of Rust Belt Startup. Today is a bit of a throwback episode. It’s a conversation that I had in front of a live audience in Utica, NY with Hugette Montesinos.
Hugette is the founder of Disfunkshion Magazine – which is way more than a magazine at this point and has turn into a lifestyle brand, consultancy, digital services and more. She’s an Instagram guru and has grown her following organically to over a quarter-MILLION engaged followers.
In this conversation we talk about her journey as a solo-preneur through building her team and launching the first issue of a magazine. How did she get distribution? How did she get her first customers? How does the brand evolve?
Then we get tactical and spend a lot of time on how you can grow your Instagram the RIGHT way. We take questions from the audience and you’ll get real-world advice that you can apply to your social media profiles.
You can learn more about Hugette at the Disfunkshion Magazine website or follow her on Instagram.
Thanks for sticking with me this season – I’ll be back after the new year with Season 2 of Rust Belt Startup.
