I had this vision... to bring together a group of like-minded people... with a common interest around building a Social Media presence for their business, around visibility, and who are willing to explore topics way beyond... So they can make more impact, a true impact on the world and on our communities, as leaders.
To bring together people,
This year, I felt this was more relevant than ever...
I knew there was something magical out there waiting for us... But it was currently missing in my business landscape of Social. It turned out, not only in my world...
So, I decided to create it. Happily, I found the right people to join me on the ride. This is what happened...
Join us as we explore! :) Maybe you will be part of it, too?
This is just the beginning!
Opportunities, challenges, lessons learned from a big year, 2020, and our personal takes on how can we, as businesses, use Social Media, as we connect with the world, and ourselves, so we can make an impact.
Behind the scenes from an event to remember!
Today, I would like to share with you a vision, my vision - it's going to be a personal one. I'm a little bit shy about it, but nevertheless, I feel it's time to do that.
So, my vision and my goal is to use social media as a very specific tool, as a tool for personal growth and development, and to use it as an opportunity - by using it and through the ways of expressing ourselves on it -, as a tool
I think this is missing very much in our world...
Throwback in my mind to the past few years and the life-changing exploration I went on. This is a very personal post and feels like the perfect time to share it. I’ll trust my gut, however, it still feels a bit scary to own this. Well, it is just the time.
I got these cute ferns from someone yesterday. I love ferns, they are so graceful, delicate & elegant. I’ve always been admiring their shapes & forms, and they would often inspire me as a photo topic when I’m out & about in nature.
As I was welcoming them home, trying to find a place for them, I was thinking about social media, business & growth.
How can we spread good energy, good vibes? How can we spread like a fern, bringing people something special through our business?
Today I’m bringing a story with the bears. I just love how they still keep showing up. I have been enjoying greeting and meeting them during the New Zealand lockdown weeks, somehow they always brought a smile to my face. I imagine you would have seen some, too?
Here is a story inspired by the bears who keep showing up.
Today I am really excited! Something big is happening behind the scenes. The past few months have been big for me. I feel a lot has shifted, and then these past 7 weeks in the “lockdown” made me reflect even more.
It was really like a “lockdown with myself”. Nowhere to run, nowhere to escape, just let a lot of things go and decide to face some really uncomfortable stuff and look into myself...
Left with big questions. Came back with huge answers I could only dream of. - Takeaways from the Social Media Industry's biggest conference #SMMW20
When I left for Social Media Marketing World to attend the industry's most prominent, and probably one of the last conferences of this scale for this year, I intuitively felt that it will be a significantly different experience to the ones I attended before.
Why? Because it coincided with a time when I was beginning to shift focus. It started some months ago. I decided to pause, and look at things that really make my heart tick, to look at things that really matter. I decided to set off on a new journey, and traveling to San Diego was part of it. I went there to ask big questions, and find even bigger answers.
And then, the world entered a new phase. The timing couldn't have been better, ever! Never a more exciting and empowering moment to dive deep! The unprecedented global situation has prompted others, too, to ask big questions. And I, also, continued on this journey. We are becoming part of a big puzzle. Together.
I wanted to write about my takeaways right after the conference, as I usually would do. But the moment wasn't right. I was distracted and tempted trying to answer some burning questions in me, and often triggered and challenged by factors I could not control. A much needed and extended pause. I'm happy I waited till now. The time is right now to share.
Here is what I learned from the conference, and looking back now, what it gave me to prepare for these special times and everything ahead.
Dive deep. And look at what this moment brings. One step at a time. No rush. Everything has it’s time.
To be patient. To lift off the weight. The pressure. To let go. To surrender. To feel the pain. The anger. The triggers. The judgements. The loss.
And then find the beauty. The peace. The strength and knowledge. Within.
Today is a very special time of our lives and these past few days probably were very special for many of you as well. How are you all feeling? Yeah..
I am feeling really overwhelmed... but, I have a good news
Social Media is and hopefully will always remain social, so we will always be able to connect no matter what is the current situation and limitations in our lives.
Here are some tips to consider how you can turn this situation into opportunity and how to practice social distancing - yes, on social media :)
Also an update on the workshops that seems to be the right decision now.
