Build Your Tribe Podcast Show Notes: Social Media Overload

social media overload(1)In this episode, I talk to you about how to handle social media overload. It’s hard to keep up with everything going on online, and it’s important that you realize that social media should not take control of your life. I don’t want you to be a slave to your accounts, so I want to help you create a system. I will share with you what has worked for me, and hopefully that will bring you some peace.

 

Discussed in this episode:

  • How I use one piece of content on multiple social media platforms.
  • How to chose which social media sites you should be on.
  • Ask yourself, “What is my goal in social media?”
  • I want you to boldly be you! This is how you will build your true tribe.
  • When you go deep into a new social media platform, you need to clean out your closet.
