Everything You Need To Know About Twitter Etiquette

Social Media

No CommentsLeave a Comment

Twitter is not just a social media time waster when leveraged for the long term to build relationships, partnerships & influence. It can open up a whole new world of opportunity for you and your business.

Get out there and join in on the conversation. Connect with others that share your interests.

Ask open ended questions to get the conversation started.

Always check your @ mentions and respond to people who are trying to connect with you.

Start conversations with people you’ve interacted with before to keep building the relationship. It shows you care and remember them.

Pitching and selling on twitter can be super smelly. Do you want to read a bunch of ads on twitter from people you do not know all the time? An occasional pimp is great to let folks know what you are up to. If all you do is spam, you are wasting your time and benefiting nobody. Stop being self serving and ask how you can serve others.

Another thing that stinks is DM’ing someone after they follow you and tell they to go check out a product or follow you here, there and everywhere. It is usually the quickest way to get someone to unfollow you.

You may be saying “I have nothing to tweet about.” Sure you do. Just be yourself, have fun and be entertaining. Twitter is like a gigantic cocktail party. Say hello to people and do not over-think it so much.

Tell jokes, share some of your favvy quotes, personal development tips & inspiration.

Share your story, some of what your up to, things you enjoy, so people can see your personality. Glimpses of the real you. Create curiosity.

Share and link to others people blogs, videos etc that you think others will find interesting and valuable.

Share some of your how-to’s and blog posts with helpful content.

Retweet others tweets that you love.

Remember, you do not want to be like everybody else. You need to step it up and just be you. Not everyone is going to like you or what you say and that is totally okay.

Tip & Tricks

Stop the crap talk and give yourself permission to be great.

You control how your day and life is going to be. You are the author of your own story. Is you yours a fairy tale or a horror story?

For most of us we have a crap ton of negative self talk buzzing around in our heads. Lately, I have been working on the power of positive self talk and have seen so many changes in my personal life as well as my business.

You see words have the power to make or break us, they totally control our life.

Conquering the negative head chatter – The second negative self talk begins grab a frying pan a give yourself one good whack over the head. Problem solved right?

No, just kidding! Do not do that. I’m sure it works but you will have a whole other set of problems to deal with. Concussion, headache from hell, medical bills, etc.

When the negative talk starts you have to catch it & immediately turn it around. One great way to get yourself started if to put a rubber-band around your wrist and snap it when the crappy self talk begins –

Example of turning the negative self talk around-

I hate Mondays – I love Mondays! I get to decide how awesome this week is going to be.

I feel tired and do not want to do anything – I got loads of energy, get up and dance.

I’m a complete failure – I rock everything I do!

I’m ugly, unattractive and fat – Damn, I’m smokin hot! Alternatively – I’ LOVE myself just the way I am.

Then there is all those what if’s chattering about.

So & so’s business is so much better than mine – I love my business and nobody does it better than me!

How about all those what if conversations swirling around in your head?

What if people think I’m dumb?
What if people make fun of me?
What if people do not like me?

It is going to take practice and work but the results will change your life.

Same goes with the way we interact with people in our daily lives. Remember the words you choose will greatly affect your relationships and the know, like, trust factor. You can chose to compliment or criticize. Inspire or discourage. Be thankful for someone or take them for granted. Make a friend or gain an enemy. The choice is yours.

Smiles = Happiness and Success

Tip & Tricks

Smile! People love smiles, it gives them the warm fuzzies.
It says your confident. Smiling sells confidence and the person you are inside.

It changes your entire atmosphere, your body language, the tone in which your thinking and your ability in which you handle things. All huge factors in your business and personal life.

A smile also sparks curiosity in others. They wonder what you know and they don’t. Have you ever smiled and been asked, What’s going on? Why are you so happy? That’s the curious spark. It says, I know something that you do not or I have something that you do not.

People do not like to be around someone that always is frowning, down, negative and complaining. Why? It’s draining and brings you down. Bad juju that will rub off on you.
If you are one of those people. Stop now. Nobody wants to be around that.

People enjoy laughter and smiles and the want to be around others who exude that lifestyle and a smile definitely exudes it!

Smiling breaths new life into whatever you are doing and is so attractive to others.
It also makes you feel more attractive and let me tell you something, when you feel more attractive you look more attractive.

Do not wait for a cause to make you smile. Just smile. You have to be the cause and creator of situations. Walk into a room to change the room and not be changed by it. You establish the atmosphere, environment and ultimately the life you lead.

We are often lead by our feelings and emotions. It’s time to turn that around and lead our feelings. Smile, it contagious and changes everything.

When you wake up in the morning – smile.
When you are on the phone talking – smile.
When you are at the grocery store – smile.
When you are sitting at a traffic light – smile.

I want you to take a minute right now and smile. How do you feel?

Share your experiences in the comments below and if this resonated with you share with your friends. Let’s be the change in our own lives and smile.

8 Obstacles That Will Kill Your Business

Tip & Tricks

No CommentsLeave a Comment

8 of the top reasons you may not be moving forward in your business. It’s time to kick these bad habits.Start watching you and your business reach new levels. Thrive!

Fear – One of the main causes of fear is the fear of failure. The fear of failure often leaves us in a state of indifference, indecision & conservatism. When opting to stay within your comfort zone you playing it safe and letting fear win.

Contentment – Being satisfied with where you & your business are. Some people might consider this a great thing. I personally think it can hold you back from going even further. There is always things we can make better and take further. Growth is key.

Wasting Time – I do not know about you but when I am unfocused nothing gets done. Checking emails a gazillion times a day, messing around on Facebook all day long, tweeting up a storm. You get the picture. Wasting time leaves you zero room to try new things that will grow you & your business.

Outside Distractions – Falling into the never-ending pit of daily distractions. Phones, televisions, tablets, social media, etc. Distractions kill our creative workflow.

Overwhelm – This is a big one for many of us. Scheduling way to much on our task lists, working too many hours, saying yes when we really want & need to say no. Trying to get too much done and go on information overload mode. This stuff will frazzle your brain silly.

Close Mindedness – You got one way of thinking and its your way. That’s it period. No room for negotiations. Being close minded is just nasty. Especially when having discussions with your team or in the workplace. Close minded folks never go as far in business as those that have an open mind and listen. Listening is key.

Negativity – Negative people and situations leave our brain twisted in knots and put us in a fowl mood. We obviously cannot control the negative juju other people bring into our life. We can however, control how we react to it. If you choose to fed into it, your only hurting yourself & your business. Positive people & places are essential.

Perfectionism – Nobody is perfect! The clock is ticking & if you are always waiting for the perfect time, etc. to come along you could very well be killing your decision making ability and therefore giving your competitors the upper hand. Be the best you can be.

What obstacles are getting in the way of thriving your business?

Feeling like a Cracked Out Zombie? – Time Out

Productivity

No CommentsLeave a Comment

As we all know, spending all day on the computer can leave us feeling like a cracked out zombie. One of my favorite ways to break away from the computer is Time Out. I don’t know about you but often times I can get so consumed in my work that I lose track of time & easily spend TONS of hours in front of the computer working, with zero break. No lunch, no exercise, no relaxation for my eyes or brain. This is not good.

At the beginning of this year I found a fab solution to help de-zombify my brain + release tension that builds when spending too much time in front of the computer. It has completely changed the way I work. Forcing me to take scheduled breaks throughout the day. Time Out, baby! Completely customizable, you get to pick how often your breaks are scheduled as well as how long they last for.

I set Time Out to take a ten minute break every hour. Once my working hour is up – Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” starts playing to get me pumped. I then run on my treadmill for 5-7 minutes. Grab some water or munchie goodness and head back to work. Great to get the blood flowing + give your eyes a rest + recharge your brain. These are called micro breaks. Note: You can select your own music or sound file for your break start and end time. Music you love can dramatically lift your mood. Choose a song that gets you amped and inspired.

At the end of the day, I essentially get way more done and feel so much better emotionally and physically because I am taking time out to breathe, exercise & relax.
No more ending my work day feeling like a cracked out zombie.

You can grab Time Out for free.

Do you have any special tools or resources that are essential to your day?
