Why being less visible may actually grow your online business

This episode was recorded during many of the Black Lives Matter protests and during the Covid-19 pandemic. It highlights how both personal and environmental events and experiences can affect you and what you can do to help yourself in the process.

Mentioned in this episode:

  • Sometimes I'm less visible online because I simply get tired of all of the posting and creating and selfie-taking.
  • But during other times, it the environment or certain events I experience that cause me to withdraw and become less visible.
  • The Covid pandemic and protests and riots and deaths are some of the reasons I've been less visible.

Are you wasting your time on Facebook, Instagram. Twitter or LinkedIn?

Not all social media platforms are created equal and it's important to understand which ones are right for your brand and your business. This week's episode comes from a live broadcast that I did on my Facebook profile and on one of my Instagram business accounts.

In this week's episode:

  • I referred to this report from Sprout Social in this episode.
  • The report above details where brands are planning on spending their time and social media dollars vs where consumers are planning to spend their time and dollars on social media.
  • Facebook STILL wins. Every time.
  • LinkedIn is "B ---> B" (Business to Business)
  • The fastest way to find out what's going on in the world is Twitter.

Don't you dare take NO for an answer, mindset and other ways to have business success

You should never accept the word NO or "that's impossible" for an answer in your life or your business.

 In this week's episode:

  • I do not want you to ever take the word "no" or the phrase, "It's not possible" as possible answers in your life or your business.
  • Those are not possibilities in my life. (I give detailed examples in the episode)
  • When someone tells you "It's impossible" it only means that it's impossible for the person talking...it has nothing to do with YOU, your life, or your business success.
  • Everyone I knew said I would fail as a business coach.
  • I started (and succeeded) anyway.
  • Failure is part of success.
  • If you truly want to succeed, you CANNOT accept "No" or "impossible."
  • Success (an manifesting) requires making a decision plus action.

  • If you're thinking about failure...you'll likely see failure.
  • I began my business five and a half years ago with no startup costs, no formal business training, no encouragement from anyone, no guidance, no desk or office, and zero online followers. I was also raising my young sons at the same time.
  • The difference between success and failure is giving up.
  • The most successful entrepreneurs are also the ones who don't give up, aren't afraid to try,...
