The meaning of the word “expert” in this day and age is so skewed and worn out that tagging it as a job title and charging people an exorbitant fee without adding any value to their careers has become a norm! Don’t you agree with me?
I like to share posts that help build brands, but what I love doing is sharing posts that help keep those brands motivated to work towards growing – be it an individual or a startup. While I was looking for some inspiration to share, Shane shared his recent post with me and I couldn’t help but share it with you!
Whether you’re establishing your personal brand or starting a business of your own, the number one advice you will hear is that you must use ‘social media’ to grow faster. And I’m not going to say that you shouldn’t follow this little advice!
In this article, I am going to share why and how your small business should get started with social media.
If you have been following my blog (rather, the two posts I made in the last one month), you would know how even setting a routine for myself made me miss being consistent at it. Over the last two weeks of not being able to blog on my site, I realised one thing – it’s okay.
Why is it okay? Well, because I didn’t spend the two weeks not doing anything. In fact, I had so much work to do that I couldn’t fit in time to blog – yes, my days started early and ended late, and I have been running from pillar to post to get things done. That’s how startups are. You need to overwork, re-strategise and sometimes re-organise everything! That’s what Mondays are for.
Working in a competitive field, I have come to terms with only one thing – you take a break, you lose; you don’t push yourself out of your comfort zone, you lose; you don’t keep up with what’s trending in your industry, you lose. Basically, the chances of losing are way too much than winning.
One wrong step and everything you have worked so hard for, is lost! That’s where blogging for self comes in.
