The biggest concern I have with social media is that it levels up the whole “Keeping Up With the Jones” and cause issues in the future.
When I stopped by St. Pete to talk about feminine and masculine tendencies in the workforce, something entered into my heart and I feel it’s my responsibility to share with you.
With the rise of over sharing on social media, it can create a situation where you are wanting what others have. Social media can take us back to high school age and if you’re not careful, you might find yourself wanting everything Susan has. We are adults now, so aren’t we suppose to be pass that?
I’ve noticed that this has also effected the entrepreneur space as well. Many people are wanting to go out on their own to be their own bosses. Although this is amazing to see, but my question is does it truly align with your “SELF?”
The way that you define “SELF” is truly up to you but I know that being an entrepreneur does take certain skills and coping mechanisms which will help you run your own business.
When we feel “stuck” at a job and you can’t seem to be happy no matter what field you are in, that might be a sign that you are not challenged enough and that you might have entrepreneurial traits and maybe it’s time to see if you can grow your own brand.
Now that we have social media consuming our world (trust me, I would know), it seems that people are wanting to be part of a trend and be their own bosses.
Having a Side Hustle is always a great idea and having a creative outlet can truly spark something bigger than yourself.
But here at Simple and Pretty Co., I hope that you know that we are not promoting people to build a business but to just achieve your goals. If you are at a 9-5 job, maybe S&P Co. can help you map out your goals to get a raise in 2019 or if you want to create amazing relationships in your office to result in productivity, S&P Co. is here for you.
The purpose of this post is to help you find a sense of “SELF” so that you can live a joyful life.
If you are considering taking the leap to an entrepreneurial path, I would consider asking yourself some questions:
- What problem am I trying to solve?
- Do I have data showing that I can be adaptable?
- Am I a planner?
- Will I be able to keep myself motivated?
- Where will I get the strength to continue a task when things get stressful?
It’s truly okay if you don’t have all of the answers right now but I wish I asked myself these questions before I started on my journey. Trust me, I’m extremely happy that I took the leap of faith but sometimes it’s nice to have a small safety net when you’re making a huge decision.
Since most of you all are already paving your way through your entrepreneurial journey, don’t forget that tomorrow is the last day to purchase your #SipandMingle Conference ticket at pre-sale price. Like always, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to ask your questions! I’m always here for you. May your Monday be fill with many goals that you achieved.
