Every journey has a beginning and I want to share mine with all of you who have been following me from the very beginning.
To start a diet, business or blog is not easy! Actually, every beginning is scary because we are not sure what we are doing. Only thing I know is that I started everything with a passion and deep need to share my stories.
My journey started 6 years ago when I decided to spend a summer in America on a Work & Travel program. At that time I only visited few countries around Croatia and that was a huge step for me. Something I always wanted, like dream come true. I’ve worked for whole year combining 3 students jobs and my classes on collage of civil engineering. When I look back I admire myself how dedicated and focused I was.
Yes it was a dream that became a reality and changed my life forever. I remember crossing the Time Square for the first time. Those feeling are something I’ve been waiting for whole life. After that I knew nothing will be the same. Didn’t know how, but deep down everything was clear. At that time it was a first time I’ve heard for Instagram. Something that 6 years later became my small business and full time occupation.
After my return back in Croatia I decided to pursuit my modeling career which brought me to most amazing places. And my journey with blogging started with desire to share my experiences around the Globe.
At that point I didn’t think about money, to be honest, wasn’t thinking that anyone is making money from the blog. And now when I stop for a second and think about all the brands I worked with I have to pinch myself.
H&M, Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger, De’longhi, Nivea and many more and not to forget to mention that I was the first men ever on the cover of Cosmopolitan Croatia – such a great achievement.
So most of the people would ask why did you start it if there wasn’t money ? In “grown- up “ world everything is measured by amount of money and no one is asking : “are you happy with who you are? “
I was lucky enough to be able to support my travels from the very beginning and now when I’m full time blogger I love the idea of freedom that this job is giving me.
I feel like this is just a step on a much bigger journey that I’ll experience in a future.
I know that you are all curious to know how this Instagram “thing “ is working. It is not that “easy” and “fun” as you think; countless numbers of mails combined with many more hours of non-stop work.
But from the last month things got really easier since influence.vision came to Croatian market. This gamer changer in influencer marketing already saved my time and made this stressful job much easier. This platform is helping me to connect with best clients on the market in a easy and convenient way.
At first I was suspicious as I get many spam mails on a daily base but when I met this young and driven guys from their team I couldn’t be more happier to join their platform and give it a go. I already did my first campaign with them and really looking forward for the future projects.
So how thing works on this platform : brands sign up on the influence.vision platform and input their campaign briefings. Influencers can see those campaigns, decide whether they are suitable for them and submit an offer.
When it comes to pricing ; influencers are able to input their own prices (no fixed prices from brands) as well as a text stating their creative idea for the campaign. The platform is entirely free and will stay like that.
I trust them as the influence.vision believe that influencers know their communities best and therefore want to ensure room for creativity to reach their followers in the best way possible. I think this is the best approach for all sides to be creative and productive in this “crazy” market that changes so fast.
It you are an influencer or a client and want to get the best for your personal business or a brand you are working for this is a platform for you. I’ll leave their web HERE so you can check them out.
And one last advice : if you want it, go for it, follow you heart, in the end of day that is the only thing that matters. It’s ok to live life that others don’t understand.
I hope that you enjoyed this “personal” blog post and that I’ll inspire someone of you to follow their dreams.
