You know that saying, we do things this way because that’s the way we’ve always done them. Well let me tell you what I learned on my summer vacation this year. We actually stopped doing everything, and we really wanted to take it to the ground. Not burn it to the ground, it wasn’t painful, it was freeing. We stopped doing a lot of things in an effort to make really intentional decisions about what we wanted to continue doing.
I’ll explain what I mean by intentional decisions in this #SpeakerSuccessTip video.
So you might have noticed that an email did not land in your inbox for the entire month of August. We had sent those every Tuesday at 1pm Eastern for probably five plus years. and we just wanted to kind of take a look at how we want to do this differently in the future.
So moving forward, you are going to have a very short, under two minute video with a tip on it that you can check out. Be sure to be following me on Instagram and Facebook to catch the Reels in your feed.
Every Thursday, we have been sending out a podcast and I have to tell you the podcast is really one of my favorite things to do and it’s really something that we’ve gotten a lot of very positive feedback on. We did actually take the month of August off from podcasting and we ran some of our most popular episodes for you. I’m hoping you enjoyed those classic rewinds.
The third thing that I did that I think you’re gonna find interesting, is I went on a 30-day social media cleanse and I loved it! I gotta tell you, I’ve been trying to break up with my phone anyway, so not being quite so engaged with my phone was really a beautiful thing!. Of course. I have team members who are monitoring to make sure that there wasn’t anybody who needed anything from us. We always got you!
You know that phrase “envy is the thief of joy”. Well, I think that they designed social media to make you kind of look at other people’s feed with some sort of envy and I’m just not all about that. I really appreciated the break and I really appreciated not having the “oh I should be doing more.” “Oh, I should be doing that.” “Oh, you know look at how much further along they are in their business.”
I loved having a little space from all of that.
I work every day on my thought-work and make sure that I am feeling as good as I can but we all have moments of self-doubt and so my kind of summer vacation from my business and social media was incredibly refreshing.
At the same though, we have been working our butts off this entire time putting a new team in place for all of our backend technology and new systems that I am super excited about. So please stay tuned for what’s to come.
See you soon, Wealthy Speakers!
