Let’s face it, we live in a world that is consumed with fear. For one minute, turn on the news or scroll through your social media platforms and you will find story after story that is centered around fear. From terrorist attacks, the Zika virus, cancer-causing foods, riot attacks, political worries; the list goes on and on. And if we’re not careful, we’ll find ourselves consumed with the fears of the world; so consumed that we will paralyze ourselves from ever living out the calling that God has given us.

Why Successful Women CAN Wear The Same Thing Every Day! http://bit.ly/1avGjcc 
There are a variety of articles circulating that are based on successful men and why they wear the same thing every day. Specifically, the most popular article by Mashable, “Why Zuck and other successful men wear the same thing every day.” In response to these articles, there’s A LOT of d

Just heard this ‪#‎SocialMedia‬ comment: "See what's working for them and duplicate it."
I REALLY disagree with this! Yes, it's ok to see what's working for other people in your niche, in your industry, but I REALLY believe that you have to develop your OWN VOICE!

If you just copy what other people in your niche are posting, then people are not getting to know the REAL you and quite honestly, you will not see the results that you were hoping for!

Friends, don't copy what works for someone else on Social Media! Find your voice! Find what's unique about YOU and then post that! ‪#‎BeDifferent‬ ‪#‎BeWorthFollowing‬

You know how it goes. You see friends who are enjoying a date night out with their spouse, friends on the vacation of a lifetime, friends who just landed that new dream job they’ve been praying about, friends enjoying a girls weekend at a spiffy resort, your competitor receiving another speaking engagement request, etc., etc., etc.

While seeing all of these stories, you can’t help but to think:

✔ The last date night I had with my husband was when we were dating
✔ I wish I had money for a vacation, it would be nice to get away
✔ I hate my job and honestly, if I could quit today, I would but I have too much debt to pay off
✔ Girls weekend getaway? I wish I had the time, the money and close friends to get away with
✔ I’ve been working my business for over three years now and I’m lucky if I can make $5,000 in 6-months.

The list goes on and on. After awhile, you will walk away from your computer and/or mobile device feeling sad, depressed, overwhelmed, and/or anxious....

I have the opportunity to work with a variety of small business owners on a daily basis. And as many of us know, when you are building your business, you just don't always have the money to attend niche specific conferences. As much as your heart and soul would love to be there, the money just isn't in the budget! Believe me, I get it!

Remember this:
1) There are MULTIPLE industry related books out there that you can read and that don't cost as much as attending a conference would. Get into the habit of reading.

2) Many times, the speakers at those conferences, have books, freebies or low cost items based on what they are speaking on. Get those!

3) 99% of these conferences utilize a hashtag. Follow the hashtag on social media. Get a variety of tips and such from people who are actively sharing what they are learning.

4) Many conference attendees will write a blog post about their biggest takeaways. Read those posts!

Don't despair when your budget will not allow you to attend the conferences that you long to attend! There are other ways to get the information that you are looking for!

Know what your priorities are. Know what your goals are. Don't fall prey to "what everyone else is doing." Do what's right for you, your business, your budget, your family!

This morning, I'm just overwhelmed in a good way by all of the messages I have received from those who have been in my #SocialMedia managers training course. The doors that are opening for them, the BIG steps that they are taking, and the fears that they are overcoming is just mind blowing. It's amazing what can happen in community on social media. 

So with that said, here's a few "tips" when it comes to succeeding on social media:

* Stop obsessing over the numbers. Instead, focus on those who are already a part of your community and give them your absolute BEST!

* Stop obsessing over having a post go viral. That is what I call, "The Myth of Viral Marketing." Stop looking for that one post that will bring you thousands of likes, shares, and comments. Instead, look for ways to help and bring value. When you do that, numbers will come.

* Stop obsessing over what your competitors are doing. You do your own thing. You #BeDifferent. You #BeWorthFollowing. People will notice. 

* Stop obsessing over perfection. Just do it. Just get that video out there. Just reach out to that person you have been meaning to contact. Just take that course. Just write that blog post.  Stop waiting and just live your life!

The end. :-)   #SocialMediaTip #SocialMediaTips

Did you know that over 1 BILLION people log into Facebook every month? And did you know that the average login lasts about 40-minutes? With numbers like these, the hard-core truth is that it’s getting harder and harder to get your content seen by your community, your ideal client. There is SO much noise on Facebook that it’s getting even more critical that you share content that will help YOU stand out from the rest! And one of the things t...
