Diving Into Socialbru. A new social media management tool

Diving Into Socialbru. A new social media management tool

I am often curious about how people and businesses manage their social media.
This weekend I stumbled upon socialbru. I signed up for a free account to see what they have to offer.

I read that the maker started building SocialBu, who, as a freelancer managing several social media accounts for multiple brands, noticed that the existing tools were either too expensive or were not good enough.
[He makes a solid point here. Many are very expensive. And it seems difficult for these platforms to tailor to everybody’s needs]

So he needed multiple tools just for getting simple things done. Out of my frustration, he decided to build the solution that he wanted for himself.

And so there it is. Socialbru.

You may want to know what SocialBru is about.

I’m not going to write a review here. I have other things I’d like to work on.

Suppose you are curious what it can do for you. Why not sign up for a free trial, as I did, and gain first-hand knowledge.
After all, the proof is in the pudding

What’s your social media goal?

Giving some thoughts to your social media goal

Social media goal

What’s your social media goal? If you don’t know where you want to go, it’s pretty hard to get there.

  • How do you get the conversation going on social media? Try humor and controversy. They’re very powerful. 
  • Social media is a powerful thing, but never mistake fooling around with being productive. Stay focused!
  • Are you still trying to be everyone’s “friend”? Each connection counts – and speaks loudly about who you are to your other contacts.
  • Do you know which posts people skip most? Highly personal negative posts complaining about illness and problems. (Do you agree?)

Getting Kissed By A Llama And Other Updates

Llama kissOn a sunny afternoon, my wife and I visited a friend of ours who has many animals walking around on his plot.
Pigs, goats, turkeys, sheep, an emu, and several llamas.

I don’t know if it was because of my aftershave. But two llama’s seemed very attracted to me.
And at one time, I even got kissed by one.

How cool is that!

Besides hanging around animals, I published several new articles;

Best Practices To Give Your Personal Development Journey A Boost

Have a great week!

Best Practices To Give Your Development Journey A Boost

When you first start your development journey, it can be tempting to take shortcuts. You think you already know who you are, what you want and stand for, and how to lead by example. But that’s not how the human mind works. We often hide truths from ourselves and are not honest with ourselves about these issues. So follow these best practices for starting your development journey so that you will succeed.

Please don’t skip the SWOT: You must analyze yourself in every aspect of your life to find out what your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats are for each of the target areas you want to address. For example, if you do a SWOT and find that you are not very good at something, you have a choice. You can find someone to do it for you, or you can get training to learn it. 

Nurture your strengths – When you do the SWOT for an area of your life, you will also identify your strengths. The best thing you can do in life is to choose to lead from your strengths. You want to keep doing the things you are strong at and learn to do them even better because you are clearly interested in those things.

Improve your weaknesses: If you find out that you are weak in a particular area, you need to determine whether you need to improve that area yourself or outsource it. To determine which is better, ask yourself if it really matters who does it or just that it gets done. 

Understand the three areas of personal development – These are: physical, cognitive, and social-emotional. Together, these areas encompass all aspects of your life, including health, work, personal growth, spiritual life, etc. Working on all aspects of your life is usually much better than focusing on just one because sometimes they are indistinguishable from each other. 

Plan for action: When you are working on your plan, nothing is done until you have taken steps that involve action and put it on your calendar so you can do it. Whether you do it yourself or outsource it, execution is the most crucial part of the plan.

Please focus on the right goal first: One of the reasons it’s helpful to go through each area and topic before creating a plan is to know which topic to focus on first. For example, you can’t write a novel until you can read, and you can’t learn to write until you can read, first things first. 

Be persistent: Once you have your action plan developed based on reality and not how you would like it to be, all you have to do is be persistent and take the steps to success. It is that simple. Once you have the steps in your calendar and start to implement them, your life will change.

Take a coach: If you understand everything, but your implementation skills leave something to be desired, you can hire a life coach to help you. If you know some life coaches who specialize in personal development, you could talk to them. If you don’t know anyone, ask your colleagues for recommendations. They probably know someone or can refer you to someone who knows more about the subject. 

One thing to remember about personal development is that it is an ongoing process. You are never finished with it. There is no natural finish line. For this reason, it is best to develop persistence and perseverance as you follow the path you have created for yourself, gradually adjusting based on facts and learning deep in your subconscious what is really and truly important to you. It is about knowing who you are and living a life that exemplifies who you are.
