What do you do when you make a bad mistake of social media?

Written By Geoff Talbot – Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog

 
Most people are terrified of making mistakes on social media.

From the risk adverse CEO to the self-starter who just put their foot in their mouth on twitter, making a bad mistake on a social platform can seem almost life-threatening.

Fortunately, the biggest mistake you can ever make is to never take a risk and cross over into a dangerous mistake laden minefield of being truly human.

I say make GIANT MISTAKES, or at the very least put yourself in the vulnerable position of being capable of making them.

In real life relationships always grow through conflict, we make mistakes, we err, we offend, we tell that off-color inappropriate joke at the wrong time.

And, so it is on the social media channels, your followers, fans and supporters are not terrified of your mistakes, they are actually frightened of something far more sinister — that you are some kind of inhuman troll, looking to take advantage of them.

Be real, be human and honestly connect with others in both the good times and the bad.
 
 
As an aside:

Last week, we put on a free webinar for women entrepreneurs and bloggers, we made a couple of technical mistakes, it didn’t go so well and the majority of 50+ women could not get on the call.

We’ve decided not to hide from that, we are both human and trustworthy in our frailty.

We decided to get back on the horse and run the webinar again.

Check out the webinar below ladies and sign up, this time we know it is going to be 100 times better!

To the insecure CEO who does not know who his or her value.

Written by Geoff Talbot – Co-Founder of the Seven Sentence Blog
 
I want to start off by saying that every person on the face of planet earth is of equal value.

That we are not all aware of the immense value that we each carry inside these “jars of clay” is beyond question.

You are valuable.

We need what you have to offer.

Who am I talking too?

Today, I am talking to our CEO’s, our Government Leaders, to those who have accumulated a wealth of experience both life and in business.

It’s time to share everything that you’ve learned with others, the legacy you desire to leave behind you depends upon it.

 

P.S: Social media via a blog is one of the best ways to generously share everything that you’ve learned, if you are ready to share them please contact me here.

On a day to day level, it feels as if nothing is happening. It’s like planting a seed and sitting there staring at the dirt wondering what’s going on:

Is it going to grow?

Did I do it right?

When, when, when?

Emotions seem to come and go, sometimes I feel good about what I’m doing, sometimes it feels like nothing is happening.

The only thing that appears to matter is consistency-what I do day in and day out.

New goal: be consistently consistent.

How To Beat The “SHITE” Out Of Your Anxiety

Written by Geoff Talbot

 

Anxiety.

It is an enemy that anyone whose starting something or wanting to change anything faces on a regular basis.

Anxiety is crippling, it steals our minds, it paralyzed our hands and it numbs our hearts — but only if we let it.

Anxiety does not have to win, it’s an average foe that many of us face, if you are feeling it right now, you normal and you are not alone.

How do you beat the “shite” out of anxiety?

Through a preplanned strategy that outlines actual tasks that you are going to perform every day…

When you are anxious don’t think too much, simply work your way through the list in front of you, every step forward you take is a punch to the face of anxiety — he will grow weaker by the minute.

The Problem With Manipulating Stories

Written By Geoff Talbot

 
Every night I read my two-year-old son 3 bedtime stories, to be completely honest it’s my favorite time of the day.

Not only is it a creative and deeply personal time with just him and I, but it also signals the end of day — my wife, Athaliah and I will now get some much needed time alone, I am sure any new parent can relate.

But the stories that I read often surprise me; more often than not many of the stories have been written in a way “that teaches” the child a lesson, like a story has to be some kind of morality play?

I don’t like this.

A story is simply a story, it doesn’t need to be explained or manipulated in any way, it is simply a recollection of what was or what might have been.

When we manipulate a story we emasculate it’s power.

If our desire is to simply pursue truth in the work that we do both online and offline then we must not manipulate the stories that we tell.

Diversity is Your Greatest Strength – Don’t Mess With It!

Written By Geoff Talbot – Co-founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

 
Your greatest weakness can be your greatest strength.

What am I talking about?

In this case, I am talking about the disparate, free-thinking, diverse range of ragamuffins that work for your organization.

Why spend so much time and energy trying to harmonize, unify and pull together such different strands into one single thread – when true value is found in having many different threads.

There is a chorus of diverse voices within your organization, a huge amount of creative equity, a boundless amount of enthusiasm that deserves to be harnessed and not controlled.

From a digital marketing perspective, the encouragement of diversity expands your reach; allowed to stretch and breathe,  the many different threads will form a web that will captivate and catch a wide variety of market niches.

Diversity is your greatest strength, learn how to engage and empower the different voices within your organization and the reach of your brand will expand exponentially.

Amplify Your Voice & Be Remarkable

Written By Athaliah Renee
 

To All Our Remarkable Women,

It can feel challenging to find your place in the world of online content creation when there are so many others vying to be heard.

Does this pressure to compete send you running away from the screen instead of pressing in, persisting, creating and publishing?

I hate be the resident Debbie Downer here at The Seven Sentence Blog, but if you don’t lean in and beyond these feelings, you will not succeed — I want you to succeed.

If you want to be heard you must be remarkable and to be remarkable you must be uniquely yourself.

There are far too many one-size-fits all marketing programs that teach you the “basics” but they never invite you to dive deeply into the mysteriously wonderful and remarkable places inside of you.

Let’s dive into the mystery of your unique voice, amplify it and share it; please join me in our free webinar below.

Talk soon,
Athaliah

 
 
On April 16th I will be hosting a FREE webinar on dynamic Content Strategy and Management for women online business owners and bloggers who want to amplify their voices and be remarkable. To sign up, click on the red button below — don’t forget to share.
