The Count Down BEGINS!

It’s almost go-time, people!

Yes, there are OFFICIALLY 3 days until I leave NH and drive across country to San Diego for my new life! So many emotions and so much to do!

ughh.gif

So, I just wanted to give you guys a heads up about a few things:

1) Next week, I will be driving across the country so I won’t be posting as much on BBM’s pages until I get settled in

2) I won’t be posting a blog next week - giving myself a break just for the week!

3) I am not taking on any new clients or business projects right now. I am keeping a majority of my clients and working remotely but I am actively looking for a full-time position and if I find the right one, it will be taking up a lot of my time.

Watch for my Instagram stories of all our travels through the U.S. and give me some suggestions on sight-seeing por favor!

Thanks for all your support everyone! I’ll see you on the west coast!

Confessions of a Social Media Manager

I have some confessions to make…

shh.gif

No one is perfect and I am always trying to grow and get better at what I do every day! Some things are harder than others, some things bother the living hell of out of me and some things are out of my control.

If you are a social media manager or hired one on your staff, you may relate!

So, here it goes:

1) My least favorite platform is Facebook

2) I am most irked when I work on a Canva graphic for over and hour and post it and I only get like 12 likes

3) I follow all my client competitors and follow all their followers

4) I think FB or Instagram Live is kind of cheesy and not good quality

5) I never buy followers

6) I am all about quality followers rather than quantity of followers

7) I never schedule out my content a month in advance (social media changes, trends change, I live for the moment)

8) I won’t ever do automatic DMs….again!

9) I spend more than half of my day scrolling Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn

10) I don’t follow every trend or use every new feature for my clients

11) I rely more on genuine content over paid ads

12) I am VERY picky with the content I post

13) I love UGC (user generated content) more than anything

14) I believe Insta stories are going to take over the social media world

15) My favorite platform is Pinterest with Instagram coming in hard second

So, now you know all my dirty little secrets…

I never claim to be the model business woman or have it all together (i actually kind of prefer chaos). I feel like the best way to flourish as a business owner is to claim your faults and work on yourself. Everything is all trial and error so buckle up babe, you’re in for a lot of life changing speed bumps along the way!

What are some of your confessions from your industry? Leave them in the comments!

How to Give Yourself A Little Self Confidence Boost

Easier said than done right? 

Practicing self-confidence doesn't need to be difficult - it's all about practice, practice, PRACTICE!

I notice with women my age, especially in the business world, they are constantly feeling the pressure of not only looking a certain way but having a certain level of success, productivity, and ultimately, having it all together! This can wear on our confidence and dim our light a little bit...but it doesn't need to be permanent!

This blog post idea came to me when I was scrolling through Instagram and I saw these other business women killing the game as I sat on my couch in my comfy clothes, having an off day.  I felt bad about myself, I was comparing myself to these women and how I should be doing more!  Now, to some that may be more motivating than detrimental but to me, my self confidence was dwindling by the minute.  I believe we are all capable of being our best selves but I don't think we should EVER compare ourselves to other people because not everyone's journey is the same!

So, how did I get out of my funk and move forward from my declining self confidence?

Try these steps: 

1) Write down how you're feeling

Get a journal, write down your negative thoughts and CROSS THEM OUT! Then write down 5 things you love about yourself!

2) Say your affirmations

Find 1 or 2 sayings that you can say when you're feeling bad about yourself. Say them until you feel better. Post them everywhere so you so can see them always!

3) Do something you love / are good at

Everyone has something they're good at and that they love.  Do those things more, your confidence will skyrocket!

4) Hang out with positive people

The people you are around all the time can effect you! Find positive people that have great self confidence and learn from them! Kick negative people to the curb!

5) Keep yourself healthy

Make sure you are exercising and eating a healthy diet! If you look good, you feel good!

We all need a little boost from time to time and if you follow these tips, you'll be on the path to be the amazingly confident queen you are meant to be!
