I invented Instagram

Yes, you read that correctly. I invented Instagram.

You are probably in a state of shock wondering how can i make such a bold statement?

Well, back in 2006, before the iPhone was released to the big wide world, first iPhone arrived in June 2007, i was photo blogging via my Sony Ericsson K800i.

All i used to do, was use the camera phone to take pictures and i would add a comment. Sound familiar? Maybe now, but 9 years ago, people thought i was bonkers!

Here is a link to that very photo blog from 2006/2007.

Why am i telling you this?

If i followed through with my idea and convinced enough tech guys and investors, maybe i would be sitting here with a few billion in my bank account. Nobody listened to me because they said “Facebook was already so big, why would anyone be interest in a photo social network?”

Maybe my idea was far too ahead of the curve? Maybe even so far ahead, there wasn’t even a curve!

One lesson i have learnt from this experience is to listen to my instincts.

What idea are you sitting on and want to take it to the next level?

Get in touch with me and i will show you how.
