People often tell me that they get tripped up when it comes to content creation and trying to validate their work because they question whether what they have to say is good enough and if it provides real value. I always tell them the same thing, it’s not about you.
My firstborn niece turned 25 this year. Recently, during a discussion with her about some of the most polarizing events happening in this world, she said something I think we all could learn from.
“It’s important to question whether I would have adopted a belief for myself had I not seen it on social media.”
At the end of our strategy debrief, after I discussed what people typically do before they make a decision to reach out for business help, he said, “I was stalking you for nine months before I pulled the trigger.”

This past weekend, I read an article in the Wall Street Journal about 79-year-old Martha Stewart and how she stays Zoom-ready. She discusses how she has used the pandemic as a time to up her game and her presence online.
