I know that these are uncertain times for so many and I believe it’s more important than ever to foster community. That’s why, in case you hadn’t heard, I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone about my new Facebook group for creatives and makers who want a space to talk about social media & marketing! I post weekly with tips, articles, blogs, prompts, advice and more to help you stay motivated and inspired when it comes to marketing yourself and your business!!
How do you join in on all the fun? Just search: Marketing + Social Media for Creatives on Facebook or check it out here!
Ever since starting my current full time job is as a Social Media Specialist for Professional Photographers of America, I’ve learned, and continue to learn, so much! I wanted to have a place to share this knowledge & help others succeed at social media marketing, as well as to have a space to ask questions, get advice, share struggles and find support!!
Running a creative business, whether it’s full time or a side hustle, is TAXING. We all have good days and bad days, exciting days and terrible days but we hang in there… Why?? Why do we put ourselves through it?? For me, it’s because I didn’t start this little creative hustle to get rich or become “insta-famous”, I did it because it makes me happy, I have FUN doing it, I get excited thinking about opportunities & possibilities, I LOVE IT.
Yes, I need a break now and then to focus on other things but I’ve picked up & put down my same “hobbies” year after year because, when I get right down to it, I truly enjoy them. I believe that when times get tough or uncertain and you feel like your teetering on the edge of burn out, that’s when community comes in. We are naturally social creatures and being a part of communities that are willing to support us when we’re struggling to stay motivated & inspired can be the difference between giving up or getting back our spark!
So, if you’d like to join in on this new little creative community, please do!! I’d LOVE to have you!! And remember, you can connect with me and reach out anytime via social media on Instagram or Facebook!
