Where does the fuel for our message come from? What's the truth of our inner fire? This is tough stuff. It's tough to look inside and see why we're so passionate about something. It's often easier to bury it, ignore it, or justify not acting on it. Because it is so hard, I offer the history of my message to help you see the inherent value of yours.  This episode is a deeper dive into what motivates, truly motivates, us and how to understand that truth within us vs react to or hide from. That's tough stuff. I hope by sharing my story, you can see how your story matters.  If you'd like the key takeaways of every episode delivered to your inbox, sign up here:  Thank you!  Love and Hugs, Brandy --- Send in a voice message:

There are so many social media platforms! Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Reddit, Pinterest, YouTube, and More! Which one(s) are best for you? Where should you start?  In this episode, I compare the various social media platforms to the personalities of a workgroup, classroom, or family. There's the very direct person, the very sensitive person, the one who questions everything, and more. I then offer a way of folding in one platform at a time much like you might fold a new friend or children into your life. Finally, I offer why one or two platforms done well is much better than spreading yourself thin on several platforms.  Please SHARE this episode with a friend who could use some encouragement. I'd love to fill their ears with motivation, faith in their potential, and concrete help. Thank you!  Reach me at Join the conversation on Facebook Follow me on Instagram Freebie!

Thanks for checking out my podcast and this episode. Do you use algorithms as an excuse not to share your voice on social media? Do you think there's some magical formula to master? Let's dive a bit into social media algorithms, and come out empowered. Let's not allow algorithms to be a mental block to showing up, engaging, and sharing your mission.  In this episode, I discuss what I've recently learned about where AI is and where it's not, the mental blocks I hear so frequently that give away far too much of our potential to social media algorithms, and what you can do to work with algorithms.

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.  LINKS Subscribe to my Newsletter and get the Freebie, 'How to Say It on Social Media.'
