Have you ever seen someone respond with the same response EVERY time someone makes a comment, or offers praise on social media? It goes like this: People see a fantastic photo on your Instagram account and they post comments like "Hey, amazing photo!" and "Wow! Incredible capture!" And then the person who took that photo replies to every one of those comments with robotic-like "Much appreciated" or "Thanks so much." Yes, the person was being human and replying but they might as well have been a robot. The question is: Are you being robotic on social media or are you truly coming across as a sincere human?

Reports are that Facebook is testing removing the Share button from brand posts and replacing it with a Messenger button. It is an obvious push by Facebook to get users interacting more by using Messenger. Sure, eliminating Share would help make all of our timelines clutter-free, but this would considerably hurt the organic reach of Pages. In this episode, I share my thoughts.

Eight years ago I would never have dreamed of doing videos of myself. I was scared. What would people think? Would they laugh at me? Wow. What a difference just 'doing' and conquering fear can achieve. About a year and a half ago, I jumped all in on doing vlogs and videos. And it has been a game-changer for my business and it can be for your business too

Everyone has something that they wish they could have done differently, or something they wanted to do in life but didn’t. It’s called having regrets. It can be a draining mindset. Never forget that we all go through experiences that help us become stronger and become who we are today, rather than who we were yesterday. I started this podcast as a top-10 list but it quickly evolved to a top-15 list by the end. I have no regrets about that!

Do I get in a funk sometimes about running a business? You bet I do. I'm human. For me, getting re-centred and focused helps me get back to understanding what is important. I'm learning what success means. I know that sounds strange, when I have two very successful businesses. Perhaps, it's more about understanding what being in-demand means vs being popular.

One big lesson I've learned over the years with growing clients is to recognize the difference between Resistors (who never become clients) and those who have already bought into wanting to be better, growing business and rocking their branding. You want clients who want you, want your expertise, and are ready for a journey. On the flipside, trying to do client-prospecting to Resistors often involves you playing the role of trying to be the Convincer. You literally pull your hair out trying to explain why doing X,Y and Z will improve his/her business will result in more customers, more sales and more sales. Unfortunately, it's often all to no avail.

I've been thinking a lot about what 'home' means and embracing that 'home' is really part of a journey and subject to change. When I look at it this way, I begin to see that a journey may mean some doors may close and new opportunities will open. That is exciting!
