Instagram star Katie Williams is taking the internet (and the world) by storm with posts that capture her charm, beautiful physique, and daily life. Because she’s such an open book on her social media, one might think they know everything about the American beauty, but there’s a lot more to this Instagram influencer than meets the eye.
Katie admits that her influencer journey started when she was only in high school. Back then, she was just a normal girl with big dreams. She tried going to college, but said that it simply wasn’t for her. When she decided to quit school and start working, however, her adventurous spirit felt trapped. She felt most alive when she would travel with her family and friends each summer or winter.
At the age of 23, Katie finally decided to stop living someone else’s life. So, she packed her bags and moved to San Diego, California, all by herself. That’s when her spontaneous life began.
With an almost-perfect looking life, one might think that Katie stages her posts and plans her everyday routine around a made-up life, but that is simply not true. Although she’s admitted to having a team that helps create her marketing plan and generate traffic to her social media account, the content of the account is all her. In other words, the team deals with the business side of things, so that she can just be herself.
“Everything I do on my end is organic and legitimate,” says Katie. “So it doesn’t feel like work at all to me.”
Have you ever wondered how Katie got her jaw-dropping physique? The Instagram model shares that she works out even during her time off. Katie says that for her, working out means going to the gym everyday, on top of taking her two dogs to the beach for daily walks. These activities keep her in tip-top shape for both work and play.
Katie shares that despite her very public life as an Instagram celebrity, it is hard for her to open up to other people. She has also admitted to feeling inadequate and hopeless in the past, but things changed when she decided to stop feeling that way and create a life she’s always dreamed of.
“I am motivated by making sure I never go back to that mental space again,” Katie says. “[I’m] promising myself that I won’t allow it to get to that point again and doing what’s necessary to keep my head above water.”
Katie’s fast-paced influencer lifestyle means that the only permanent thing in her life is change. Instead of worrying about what her future holds, she puts her faith in herself, and the universe, to make appropriate decisions whenever necessary.
“I honor and trust the universe to get me to exactly where I need to be,” says Katie. “I trust that I will be financially stable [and] surrounded by people who love me; the other details always work themself out.”
Living such a spontaneous life has worked out for Katie, but that doesn’t mean it’s for everyone, as an unconventional lifestyle is not without its own challenges. Katie’s life is an example of how one can live happily, as long as they are ready to face any challenge and accept and work on their flaws.
