ah, social media…

Social media networks are fantastic… until they’re not.
Social media can help you reach new customers, get more visibility and get more sales for your shop. On a personal level, it can also be a great source of inspiration and motivation.
But there’s a dark side to it all: getting sucked into it too much and wasting time, energy and losing productivity, comparing yourself to others and feeling less than great about it, problematic or unconsiderate comments, etc.
In this episode, we talk about setting boundaries both on a professional and personal level with social media so that you can get the benefits of it – with as little drawbacks as possible.
