I’ll open by saying social media is awesome. We have the opportunity to extend our influence far beyond geographic limitations.
That’s all well and good.
But all this hype about Instagram, fb, linked-in etc, originally had me wanting to extend my footprint online… forgetting to make an impact in person.
I was wrong.
Truth is, there is no better way to influence and impact someone, than in real life.
Over the last year, I’ve had the pleasure of working with this wonderful group of people – and many others – developing their mindsets and growing with them; personally and professionally.
Social will never recreate real connection with someone. Especially when you can SEE you are making an impact in their life.
I’m confident the internet, VR, and all other innovative technologies will face challenges simulating that feeling. The “I can see it in their face” feeling.
So, here’s my message…
If you aren’t making an impact on social, because you don’t have a big footprint, or a bunch of followers, that’s okay.
There is one person you can help. In real life. That needs your helping hand. It may be at work, at school, or even just walking around daily life.
Don’t let the small – yet important – connections slip because you’re not some major influencer.
Have a beautiful day.
