Well actually, Happy New Year’s Eve. Can you believe that we’re already here? The end of another year! How does that make you feel? Goals achieved and goals abandoned while at the same time being thankful for new beginnings, new goals and new dreams.
This has been an emotional year for me. I’ve been pushed to the edge of my comfort zone and beyond. I trained for and ran my second half marathon after overcoming a recurring hamstring injury. I learned that my mother had stage 4 liver cancer in late July and she was gone at the end of September. I worked on my limiting beliefs about myself and grew my business.
All the while, I’ve had my virtual family right by my side to give support when needed. Even had people praying on the phone with me and I so appreciate it all. I’ve also been blessed to partner with some of the most fabulous clients that anyone could ask for.
Like Florence Grunfelder of Money with Flo, who I first met on Twitter. Or Lori Mercer of Firefighter wife, a community of women married to firefighters. I met her on Facebook. I could go one but that would be too much. I can’t possibly forget Sandi Krakowski, my business coach who I met through a Facebook post!
Social media isn’t going anywhere so if you haven’t set your goals for how you plan on using it don’t delay, do it now. Here are some questions you need to answer:
- Why are you using social media? Is it to build your list, build relationship, sell…what’s your reason?
- What do you want to accomplish in the next 30 or 60 days? Is it to add x number of people per week, sell x number of product?
- What site(s) will you start with? Where does your ideal client hang out? Are they on Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest? Where are you going to your focus?
- How much time will you commit to achieving your goal? 5, 10, 15 hours per week. Get your calendar out right now and block off the times that you will be on social media connecting and interacting with people.
I’m so excited by what 2013 has in store for my business and my for my clients that I wanted to do something special to kick it off.
