“It’s too late for coffee.” — no writer ever
I have a secret. Actually, it really isn’t a secret because if you look at the time stamp, you’d notice… at the time of this writing, I haven’t posted on Instagram in, like, a month.⠀ ⠀ I really haven’t even opened the app. Do I love connecting and finding new friends that I otherwise wouldn’t have been introduced to? Of course. Do I enjoy doing something not “for the ‘gram” and just living my life? Hell. Yes.⠀ ⠀ Do I ask myself questions just to answer them? Apparently.⠀ ⠀ It’s felt really good not mindlessly scrolling. And, this will probably get my Business Owner Who Knows How Marketing Works Card revoked, it felt really good not to use this marketing channel to build my business.⠀ ⠀ (Because, at the end of the day, Instagram is a marketing channel when you’re using it as a business.)⠀ ⠀ It’s possible it’s hurt me as a business owner. I know that consistency is paramount when building a following. But I have a pretty strong client base and I’d rather keep them happy and do what makes me happy, too.⠀ ⠀ In the moment, not worrying about a photo, caption, and commenting on the appropriate number of other accounts made me really freakin’ happy.⠀ ⠀ What have you been doing in this last month or so? What have you opted out of (or into) that you've been really enjoying?
If Ron Swanson *isn't* your long lost twin, I don't think we could work together.⠀ ⠀ Now, if you brought bacon-wrapped shrimp to a meeting....then we may be on the right track! 🥓🍤🥓🍤🥓
Confidence is 10% hard work and 90% delusion. — Tina Fey⠀ ⠀ All I can say is... this photo was taken after someone (delusionally) thought I was a student a UVA last summer. To blemishes, Chuck Taylors, and short people problems!⠀ ⠀ PS: anyone else feeling like it's Friday when it's only Thursday? It's just a day of delusion!
Wisdom from a stone.
