This morning, I initiated a WhatsApp group to assist a few friends grappling with social media challenges. My thought was, “It’s time to motivate and guide them.” They were encountering issues like uncertainty about what to create, concerns about quality, and that all-too-familiar fear of others’ opinions. My goal was to empower them to break free from these anxieties and start crafting content that genuinely builds their brand and resonates with their audience.
Today, I requested that they each share a brief bio and a photo on a social media platform of their choosing. In solidarity, I decided to join in – but couldn’t limit myself to just a photo. I felt compelled to write a blog post as well. Ironically, I found myself in need of inspiration for blog topics, even with a list at hand. None resonated with me this morning, so I chose to share a day in my life, discussing my passion and work in social media.
Embracing the Day
My day usually begins with a cup of coffee and a moment of silence, using this time to refocus on my vision and mentally align with it. This practice doesn’t always yield perfect results, but I’ve learned the importance of being intentional with my energy. It’s a choice to embrace either high or low energy, and without intention, those low-energy days can accumulate. So, I strive to manifest the energy I wish to bring into my day.
The Productive Path
After my coffee and quiet time, I delve right into work on my laptop. One of my first tasks is to review my content calendar, filled with ideas and reminders to promote my services and products. My day typically begins with crafting a blog post, followed by coaching and training sessions – similar to what I’m currently offering my friends. This coaching involves WhatsApp discussions, lengthy phone calls, and extensive email correspondence.
The Unpredictable Journey
But as we all know, days are rarely straightforward. Meetings pop up, I have clients to take care of, and I oversee their marketing strategies. Sometimes, it’s a challenging day, and I’m not great at scheduling breaks. However, when I need a breather, I step out to take my own vidoeshoots for instagram and Tiktok content, and end up in a cozy café. It’s like a break for me, a change of scenery, and a dose of fresh air, all while staying connected to the world of social media.
A Heartfelt Approach to Storytelling
Central to both my personal approach and client strategies is the power of authentic storytelling. This method has been incredibly effective for me, enabling a strong connection with my audience. I also aim to remain true to my character, which uniquely combines a reserved nature with my extroverted personality. Authenticity is key, and I hope this distinct trait resonates with people.
Rediscovering my Social Media Passion
There have been times in my career when I questioned my enthusiasm for social media. During these periods, I stepped back, going through the motions with my clients, unsure of my desire to create content or engage with people. These doubts were particularly strong at the start of the year, leading me to reduce my online business presence and take time for reflection. Thankfully, this hiatus helped me return with renewed vigor and a rekindled love for my profession. I’m fully committed now, more than ever.
The Future of AI and the Evolution of Work
An emerging interest of mine is the role of AI in our work. I’m actively exploring how AI can enhance the output, productivity, efficiency, and effectiveness of our endeavors. I encourage my clients to consider this as well. Given the rapid evolution of AI, it’s poised to significantly impact our professional landscape in the coming years. Stay tuned for more on this evolving aspect.
That’s it for today. Have a fantastic day! If you have questions, need support, or want to connect, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
