Abisesh, @abiseshm, lives in Bhubaneswar, India, with his wife, his parents and his younger brother. “In our culture, we prefer to stay with the whole family,” he says.
He loves his diverse neighborhood because it’s close to so much nature—mountains, forests, lakes and rivers. “I feel connected to nature,” he says.
Not hard to believe when you look at his social media feed. But mixed in with his nature shots are images of his daily exercises, healthy meals, him hard at work or reading a book. He says he finds success connecting with his followers when he shares the authentic parts of his life.
“I focus on my regular activities that I have been doing and I create content around those,” he says. “A major portion of my social media following is fitness enthusiasts. So, it has been easy for me to connect with people all around the globe.”
Abisesh found time recently to answer some questions for Amway Global so we could share his insights and advice with others.
