If you had asked me four years ago if I would be on social media, I doubt I would have allowed you to finish your question. I despised all technology let alone social media. Of course, my opinion was pure judgement from the outside because we often do that when we hear the negativity that comes with it. Still, Social Media Maven I am so not! I still don’t consider myself one even though I have come a very long way and use social media professionally and personally. These days, I appreciate all platforms and I have my favorites like Twitter and Periscope! ….Periscope is my absolute favorite because there is so much to love about it…how can’t you love it? Thanks to Lorraine C. Ladish who introduced me to it…I am NOT going back!…it’s pa’lante from here on out!
Here is what I love most:
Finding even more like minded people and growing into your tribe is a huge one for me. I am able to find people who are scared just like me, or who are facing certain humps in the road within their business. Who would have ever known that I would call my blog a business? I have now shifted my mindset and know all that I can become because of all of these like-minded people I’ve met along the way. I have found my #BizBabes tribe because of Periscope and they have been such a tremendous uplifting gift for me.
The greatness of live stream and real time is power!!! I was able to go back to my island and bring my followers with me. Some had never visited Puerto Rico and thanked me for sharing my trip with them. It was a great feeling to be able to share my island with so many of those who might not ever be able to see it. I was able to bring it to them…. in real time!
Sharing your shine anyway you do it. There’s no right or wrong way to ‘scope. Many people get extremely technical and want it to be perfect – trust me I have been there! It’s real time (live stream) people, NOTHING is perfect!!!!!! I learned this the hard way! I am growing everyday within Periscope. I have gone from not delivering any content to using it for my niche. I share parenting tips, things that happen in my life, as well as books that I read to my children that others might not know about. I get chills when I get tweets or emails saying, “thank you for sharing your knowledge.” I look at it as though I am sharing what I know, with you! Simple, right?
Take these three nuggets that I love about Periscope and run with them! Apply them and download Periscope and then get to ‘scoping. Share your goodness, share your shine and let the world know that you have a purpose and you are going to share it. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done, thanks to listening to mentor and friend Lorraine C. Ladish! We can’t do this alone and I’m thankful to have found so many great people to take this leap with!
