Ranting on social media hurts your business (it does, seriously).
Sick of being asked to do free work? Sick of the requests to do work for super cheap? Sick of not being respected as you feel you should? Don't rant on your business social media about it. Seriously, though, try to avoid it. Ranting on social media gets you nowhere in business. And I go into my own little rant about why (oh, the irony) as well as some ideas about what to actually do instead.
Social Media, Sexuality, Perverted Comments, and Nudity - got your attention yet?
What's up with men being so inappropriate on models' social media accounts, especially Instagram? It's a problem as old as the cold, and Nino discusses why it's been unfortunately normalized in modern times, and how fighting back against often brings out "victim shaming" attitudes in men – a sexist stance if there ever was one.
