Meet Ophélie, an avid french traveller, photographer and foodie living in Paris. She is the author of the blog, limitless where she shares her secrets on where to find the best food and travel spots in Paris and around the world. She is a passionate lady who loves to connect with her community and share her insights! Read on to find out more about all that she do!

What did you do in college? 

I went to a business School in France. Marketing was my favorite topic!

What are the things that matter to you the most?

Helping people! I really enjoy helping people to develop themselves and be more confident. I also love to support the ones around me when they come with a project idea or if they want to start a business.

What does a typical day in your week look like? 

As I am a full time blogger and content creator, Instagram and my blog take a lot of time in my week. Therefore my mains activities are shooting and editing the photos, engaging with my community on Instagram, and writing blogposts. But I also love to work out, go out and meet my friends in cafes or restaurants with good things to eat (as I am a foodie) and of course travel!

Are there key people or books that have moulded you? 

I have read the book ‘How to make friends and influence people’ by Dale Carnegie when I started to work and this book changed my life! A few years later I decided to take a Leadership and Communication training with the Dale Carnegie franchise in Paris. Today I am a certified trainer myself for this course and I help people to be confident in their own capacities!

I am a consultant for the Dale Carnegie franchise in Paris and give a few trainings a year on top of my travel blogger activity.

Tell us something we don’t know about the creator’s work? 

I think people do not really realize all the work that is behind the content creation!

You have to think about a lot of things: where to shoot, when is the best time to go there, what to wear to match the environment, what is the best angle to capture the most beautiful photos, which kind of lenses to use, … And then select the best photos out of the 500 or more you took in one session and edit them. It takes a lot of time!

How has you experience been building your Instagram community? 

It was a lot of work to build my community! You have to spend a lot of time on engaging with the others before they come to your profile by themselves. But talking to other people from all over the world is something I really like so it was never a burden! The community is the thing I love the most on Instagram. I have met many like-minded people thanks to this platform; some of them have become real friends today!

Where do you see yourself in the future?

I would love to mix my passion for travel, photography and meeting people with the thing that is the most important for me: helping people.

I want to create a business out of it!
