hey there! I'M CHRISTINA GALBATO...
... aka The Bold Brunette. I'm the Founder of The Instagram Boot Camp and I'm a travel & lifestyle photographer, blogger and vlogger. I get paid to travel the world promoting my favorite destinations and brands.
You read that right - that's my job!
And how did I make traveling the world my career?
You guessed it ... Instagram.
I didn't just get this job overnight! Almost two years ago, I was working in a 9-to-5 job in New York City. I'd been there for just over a year and began realizing that, to put it bluntly, I was miserable.
I'd done everything I'd been told to do (go to university, work hard, get good grades, land a job...), but for some reason I felt completely and totally unfulfilled! I started to think about what I loved the most in life and for me, that thing was TRAVEL in big, bold capital letters.
So, I started my Instagram account and travel blog in May 2016 with the goal of being a full-time travel influencer. I worked my a** off, made zero excuses and never gave up on my dream even when it got hard.
Fast-forward less than two years and I have grown my Instagram to over 200,000 loyal and engaged followers. My audience and photography have allowed me to work with and get paid by my favorite brands, leave my 9-to-5 job to be my own boss and live a life that makes me truly happy.
Why I'm qualified to teach you
I created my business from nothing and built an audience from no one. I didn't have connections in the blogger world and had no photography experience. I went from unhappy and unfulfilled to living my wildest dream. I went from pinching pennies in the big city to earning 3x my corporate salary.
To sum it up, I'm qualified to teach you how to grow as an influencer or blogger on Instagram because, well ... I did it myself!
The Instagram Boot Camp contains every bit of knowledge I have obtained about achieving success on Instagram. All of the tips and strategies I used to grow and monetize The Bold Brunette are in this course. As a student of The Boot Camp, you'll start your Instagram journey a step (or more like 100) ahead of the pack.
