133: Sharing Your Personal Life on Social Media: Knowing Where to Draw the Line
Ahh… social media 📲
It’s not usually a favorite topic among health practitioners, because quite frankly it can be the last thing on a very long list of “to-do’s” most days. And if I’m being honest, I find myself grumbling about it sometimes too. 💁♀️
BUT it’s also helped me MASSIVELY grow my practice and connect with people just like you!
So, what’s the trick to making social media work for you as a busy practitioner?
Simple → let your hair down, drop the “professional act” & start sharing about your life!
People want to know about YOU. They want to know what car you drive, what your kitchen looks like, and what kind of laundry soap you use (yes, it’s true, show them your non-toxic laundry soap!).
Buttt there are some rules of engagement about just *how* personal you should get (at least in my opinion). So press “play” to hear all my juicy thoughts, including:
- *How much* of your personal life to share
- Which topics to avoid at all costs
- Fun and easy ways to create “teachable moments”
- How to bring people behind-the-scenes using “stories”
- What to do if you think your life is “too boring for social media”
So, whatcha waiting for?
Press “play” and let’s GO.
