If you're going to post to social media, you must engage. What does that mean? How can we engage without spending hours and hours on every platform? That's what I'm here to answer.

Instagram is slowing doing away with Likes. What does that mean, and what doesn't it mean? What's a Like even worth? Why is it so hard to add links? Let's discuss!!Episodes ending in 2 and 8 focus on practical tips and tools of social media platforms. In this episode, Episode 22, I explain Likes, the Instagram change, Links, and why Profile Visits mean more to you than Likes. Thank you so much for listening.

Is it the algorithms? Is it politics? Is it censorship? What if the only thing most of us change is our own reactions to and we show up on social media?

You are always your brand. You are always showing others what it's like to work with you. For example, if you're rude to the barista at your local coffee shop, those around you see that. They may be lost forever as possible clients for you. Or, they may agree with you and be your best client ever. The same is true on Facebook. As we enter a hot political year, how do you want to come across to potential clients? What's your intention? Let's talk about it! I'd love to hear from you.

Are you proactive or reactive on social media? Be proactive and cultivate the culture you'd like to experience on social media. Cultivate the VIBE you want, and it will be returned to you. In Episode 17, I offer you a foundation from which to build the experience you wish to have on social media. That's done from first deciding on the VIBE or Emotion you wish followers to experience when they engage with you through your posts or comments. It could be happiness, humor, empathy, encouragement, or education. You decide then grow that experience for your followers. They will then return it to you. That's how you can BE THE CHANGE. As always, thank you for listening!! Questions? Ideas! Points of clarification? Reach out to me at Need more encouragement in your life?

Anxiety: Worrying about events that have not and may or may not happen.  Yes, it's appropriate at times. But for many of us, we get stuck in anxiety. We worry, overthink, and project onto what others will think or not think about our comments, videos, and message on social media. It's enough to give up social media altogether. BUT WAIT!! Don't do that! You have a voice, a message, and a purpose for your presence and engagement on social media. In Episode 16, Overcoming Social Media Anxiety, I dive into how we simply cannot control how others will respond. What we can control is how we show up. What' most important, is that you DO SHOW UP and SHARE YOUR VOICE on social media. I discuss my friend, Joel Schueler's, new book, 'Love Your Fear: A Quick Self-Help Guide to Managing Anxiety' and how it applies to our anxiety over social media. It's a great, sincere, and helpful read. There's a link below. AND, there's more! This week's free Tidbits are SlideShare and Otter. WOW! What great tools. The links are also below. Lastly, YOU CAN TOO WRITE A BOOk. If you're thinking about it, do it. I offer insights as to why you are closer than you think to have a book out in the world. LINKSSubscribe to my Newsletter and get the Freebie, 'How to Say It on Social Media.' me on Instagram for uplifting and fun posts created by me for you., Questions, Suggestions!?!?
