I want to be a social media consultant, yet I don't look at my Facebook news feed (very often)

IMG_5166In "It's Business Time" (the 6-month intensive business-development program I'm in) we're at the point where we're defining what we want to DO. As in, for money. For reals. With a website and everything. And for me it's designing logos, and doing social media consultations. And writing, my own blog and my own writing.

And oh my, how the Vampire Voices rise up at that!!

They say, "But! You kill your Facebook news feed!Β And you work to spend less time on social media, not more! So... why would anyone pay you real money to tell them what to do with their social media?"

(Vampire Voices are assholes, by the way. The way to deal with them is to say, "Well, thanks for the feedback, but I got this.")

Later on down the road as I'm writing my sales pages, I'll get into things like how I still get lots of Likes and followers, and how my content still gets shared. And I'll get into what I do personally, to stay enough "in the loop" as I need to be, but also to take nice long breaks from what feels, often, like overstimulation. And I'll talk about my thirteen years of experience blogging and sharing things online, which is a rich catalog of memories, attempts, fails and successes.

But for now, on a Friday afternoon, let me just tell you this: whatever your personal equivalent is of my fear of "But I can't be a social media consultant if I keep my news feed killed!", it's not true. You get to flip the script. You get to create what you want, from boundaries to blog posts, to businesses.

xoxo and have a great weekend!!
