Does the thought of your business going “Social” overwhelm you?
Think of social media as a way for you to be you and create brand awareness socially. And manage your online reputation.
Personally, every piece of you makes a difference. Your position socially, the amount of money you make, how much you weigh and the way you care for your appearance or present yourself and too many other ways to name affect how we are judged. This is a fact. An unfair fact.
But what else factors into how people can and do judge you? Pet owner? Doting parent? Political junkie?
- Your Relationship
- Your Children
- Your Career
- Faith and/or Political Views
- And anything any stranger sees fit to judge you for if they decide to do so because there is nothing you can control about what someone else does.
Human beings are social creatures. We need companionship to thrive in life, and the strength of our connections has a huge impact on our mental health and happiness. Being socially connected to others can ease stress, anxiety, and depression, boost self-worth, provide comfort and joy, prevent loneliness, and even add years to your life.
Not having these strong social connections can pose a serious risk to your mental and emotional health.
“There are only two industries that call their customers ‘users’: illegal drugs and software.” Edward Tufte
