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.
2020 is definitely going to be the year of the video! So if you want to ride the wave and start creating your own videos for your business, here is one tip you need to start with!
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.
I thought I'll surprise my subscribers with something special this year. No, it wasn't a last minute Xmas promo, where you get a 99% discount and buy my services for double than usual :) And I wanted a bit more than just a nice Xmas message to check out before I thank them all for being part of the B!Social adventures all year.
It's some topics that I thought they might find interesting, and that are close to my heart. And topics that got most of my followers votes on Social Media that they wanted to hear about.
I've been getting some great feedback. So I decided to publish it. Hope you will enjoy it and find it useful!

How time flies! Yes, spring has sprung, and I have to admit I have no idea where did the last month go! I can't believe we celebrated 2 years in business & the 2nd Anniversary of launching B!Social, from Nelson to the world! :)
Here are some exciting updates on what happened in the past few weeks in the B!Social universe.
And, proud to introduce a new feature on the blog: The B!Social Hall of Fame :)
Thank you to all the amazing people & my lovely clients for joining me on the journey! :) Here are all the details, read on!
It's time to #bsocialnow :)
Alongside the strategic consultations & trainings I do with clients, workshops are definitely one big pillar of the services I offer at B!Social. During the past 2 years, I enjoyed developing & fine tuning a method and a set of signature courses that deliver practical, hands-on learning by doing, at the same time providing a great social experience, too.
Here is to the Team B!Linked at our last LinkedIn Workshop, that happened to be a special number for this special month. This was our 15th Workshop!
Check out how this group started to raise their profile and grow their business/ organisation with the help of this exponentially growing, also still very underused social media platform, and putting things into action instantly.
It's the time to #bsocialnow !
