I am sure I can't be the only one.
What does a Facebook 'Like' or any emoticon really mean anyways? When someone likes a post, in my mind, I'm thinking what did they "Like". You also have the heart, the emoticon hugging a heart (still don't quite understand that one), the emoticon with the tear, an emoticon with the "oh wow", and the angry face (What are they angry about?).
As a business owner utilizing social media to get out your message and to connect, would it be wise to engage at a deeper level with a meaningful comment. Whether we like it or not, social media continues to become a larger part of how individuals communicate in the world today.
Think about it....
Way back (really not that far back), we sent letters to one another. BTW - I still do with Send Out Cards.
Eventually, we moved to the telegraph, and then to a phone (the one with the wire connected to the wall), and then to the cell phone. Email was all the rage. Then comes social media. What's next...I...
Over the years I was told, "Jeremy, you're not bringing enough energy. You need to be more excited. You can motivate, encourage, and help more people if you would act in this way." Guess what, it was complete BS, and for those telling me essentially not to be myself, what they don't realize is the number of people that came to thank me for my authentic relationship.
See, authenticity is what people want. They don't want a show. They want to know you truly are passionate about what you do, and that your intention is to add value...not dupe them into believing something through acting out of falsehood. People want to feel like you care about their needs and to be 100% genuine about that feeling.
I write this to encourage you to "Be You" today. I will bet more people will gravitate towards you than away from you. For those that move away, be okay with that too. Unfortunately we are messaged everyday in this world that we have to appeal to everyone. Stop...
I read an article today chronicling the fall of a leader that made some really poor choices. It was a reminder that as a business owner, you are always under the spotlight whether you choose to be or not.
"Everything rises and falls with leadership." - John Maxwell
Take actions based in truth and light, do the right thing, and admit when you've made a mistake. People look at business owners as mythical unicorns living in fields of clover framed by an overarching rainbow. You do something that blotches that image, and everything goes away in a snap.
Organizations, relationships, and families can all be impacted by our choices. If you think you can hide the things you're doing, at some point it will catch up to you. Just don't go down the path knowingly making bad decisions.
Be aware today that any decision you make has a consequence. Some will be favorable, and others can be destructive (BTW - this is both in business and life). This mistake made by this business...
