Tianna Fernandes, @tiannaoficial, lives in Natal, a city in Rio Grande do Norte on the east coast of Brazil that is home to warm sunny beaches on the Atlantic Ocean. She spends her time working on her Amway business and enjoys going out to eat with her friends, traveling or snapping photos. Whatever she’s doing, you are likely to see it on her social media channels where she shares her activities, passions and her favorite Amway products. Exercise is important to her, too, and she uses it to kickstart her day! “When I go running early in the morning, my day becomes such more productive.”
Tianna found time recently to answer some questions for Amway Global so we could share her insights and advice with others.

The community, the care and love that entrepreneurs are treated with and volunteer work. I love being able to give opportunity to people and help people with excellent products. And I like to know that Amway has social projects. (It’s inspiring ) when someone tells me that I inspired her to be a better person and to be able to expand her business through my example as a businesswoman, creator and person that I am and that she loves the company. (I also am inspired by) the gratitude we have for each other in being able to grow together.

AG: In one word, describe your ABO community?
AG: How has social media allowed you to find community?

AG: What advice do you have for those just starting their social media journey?
T: Have a strategy, patience and persistence! It’s about analyzing metrics, looking for [opportunities] at all times to develop content, keeping in mind who the target audience is. (It’s also important to) have organization and [posting consistency] and be open to suggestions that may appear to grow day after day. On social media, observing the details and having a vision that you can grow makes all the difference.
