I have such love and appreciation for a well put together feed, so I thought I’d share the 3 things I’ve done to make my Insta profile so beautiful. It’s not as complicated as it seems, so if design isn’t your forte, give yourself a couple of mins to see how easy it could be.
The all-knowing unconscious mind
The subconscious mind is a beautiful poetess… she weaves together imagery, memories, and feelings in this evocative tapestry that brings up everything you’ve been avoiding seeing.
Want to know what your peeps think about you? ASK THEM.
When was the last time you asked your peeps if they know what it is you do…?
When we’re networking on social media, whether it’s via posts, or in groups (especially when it’s our own group!) we seem to create this facade that we have it all together, that we know everything, and this creates a big division between us, and our dream clients. It makes us unapproachable, and frankly, it makes us ‘fraidy cats to ask them that they want, or if they even know what we offer. Because hey, if we know everything, why would we have to ask, right?
Just because it’s FUNCTIONAL, doesn’t mean it’s WORKING
I see you there. Hiding behind that brand you’re wearing, even though it’s awkward, uncomfortable, and let’s be honest, a bit outdated. And you’re CLINGING to it, like your childhood blanky, dragging it along behind you like Linus, but also kinda hoping nobody sees it. Because while once upon a time, that brand was so very you… it was aligned with your values, your price point, and it was so pretty… you’re not that same woman anymore. And it’s time to put the blanky down.
The secret to making impact
Want to know what the #1 mistake I see people making in the promotion of their businesses?
They’re forcing connection. Or trying to, anyways.
They haven’t taken the time to first get clear on who and how they serve, and then to go out and make relationships with those people, with those offers, so they are expending a crapton of energy (yes, that’s an official unit of measure) on creating content that no one is listening to. Bummer, right? So why do they fall into this trap, and what can they do instead? The solution to every scenario this happens in is CLARITY. Lemme tell ya how that one simple theory can help.
Giving, Getting and Goodness
What if I told you that just because you CAN help someone, doesn’t mean you SHOULD?
Does it feel icky?
Do you feel like a selfish jerk?
I get it… I really do.
But here is the thing, sweet one… as a recovering over-giver, I have a bit of advice I’d like to share. You can take it if it resonates for you, and leave it if it doesn’t. (Please kindly hold back any eff yous, etc. I get it, I’m not for everybody.)
