Checking Your Ego + Narcissism of Social Media

Business

People often ask me if it feels narcissistic to post so much about myself on social media.  They ask if I worry people will formulate opinions about my work based on how active I am Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat.

Allow me to answer this in the most straight-forward way possible:

  • There are lots (and I mean lots) of people who don’t like how I use social media.
  • Sure, people consider me vain for being the heartbeat (and face) of my brand.
  • Some think I’m silly, ridiculous, unprofessional for using social media for business growth.

 

And to them I say:  LOOK THE OTHER WAY.

I hope you say the same.

Social media has empowered me to do one of two things for prospective customers:  Attract or Repel.  The more I share who I am, how I help, and my way of doing business, the more I attract clients who just get me.

These customers turn into loyal evangelists of my services and THEY are the reason my business continues to flourish.

Does it feel awkward to use social media?  Does it require planning?  Does it feel icky when people say mean things?  Yes. Yes. Yes.

But all of that fades when I get to work with amazing clients, do what I love, and run a profitable business every.single.day.   I wish you the best as you do the same.
