Take A Back Seat!

Just about everyone has accused me recently on how I’ve been a little absent of Facebook. Lesser content and all.
.
In fact, I’ve not taught anything LIVE on Facebook this year and we are almost halfway through the year. Accusations have mounted so I think I would realign and restrategize. Just before I do these, let me share with you what informed my decision.
.
To start with, my absence on Facebook was a conscious decision. One that was necessary if I wanted growth for my business. As a thought leader and coach, I found that my audience were gradually populating Instagram and just a few of them had time for Facebook. The bulk of small businesses who needed my consulting services spent more and more time on IG, so it was just logical to serve them where they are gathered.
.
All I got from Facebook then was “Thank you sir”, “God bless you sir”, “You’re amazing” and all the sweet pleasantries you can think of. A lot of thank you but NO SALES. I practically took a BACK SEAT to see from a spectating angle what was wrong and what I need do differently.
.
Sometimes, taking a BACK SEAT is necessary for your growth, look at your business from a spectating lens, rid yourself off emotions, be critical and make corrections based on what you’ve discovered.
.
This week, I charge you to take a BACK SEAT, look at your business from behind, lead from the back, look at the systems you have in place, is there cohesion? Is it seamless? What is working and what isn’t? .
Leading from the front with clouded emotional judgement, you can’t be critical.
