How to use influencer marketing to influence your market
The term ‘influencer’ is used more and more these days during marketing meetings, and given the rise of the social influencers it is no surprise.

How I Learned To Love My Body – Jacintha Akkerman
“I’m fat”. “I wish I had a body like hers”. “Why can’t I be skinny?”.
For as long as I can remember, I have had body issues. Some might say body dysmorphia.
When I was a little girl, I was obsessed with baking. I loved baking delicious food, but unfortunately that delicious food didn’t love me.
In high school, it resulted in me putting on a lot of weight.
I was “big boned”, as they say. But I’m not sure the bones were the issue.
I LOVED sugar, but for all the wrong reasons. Constantly gaining weight resulted in having self-doubt and lacking self-confidence.
Seeing myself in photos during high school made me depressed.
I didn’t believe in myself, so I would eat my feelings.
When I finished Year 12, I wanted to put myself on a better path.
So, I stopped drinking soft drinks, limited my sugar intake and fell in love with exercise.
But then my love for food turned into a love of alcohol.
My diet did improve but I would go out all weekend.
Come Monday, I would feel guilty so I would pound the pavement, do as many spin classes as I could, and eat very little.
I wasn’t respecting my body, and it was very noticeable in my face, which resembled a Hawaiian pizza.
And I was constantly so negative. “I have fat legs”. “Gosh, she is hot, why can’t I look like her?”.
Then I would sit on the couch and eat an entire pack of chips and block of chocolate.
Some people are genetically blessed with a perfect figure. I am not one of those people. I have to work for it.
