I took a break from social media for 14 days and here is what I learned


I have a love-hate relationship with social media.


Oftentimes, I see the value of creating content for my audience and the connection it affords it.  But, I also see the black hole it can suck you into and the massive energy leak it can create both personally and professionally.  I took a very impromptu 2 weeks off from social media and holy heck…if I am being honest it was amazing! 

In this episode, I share what prompted the break, and what I learned and reflected upon while I was away. Most importantly, I share the changes I made (and have kept) since I’ve come back on.

Why did I take an unprompted break from social media? 

There were multiple reasons I decided to step away:amanda walker life business coach

  1. There was a drastic drop in viewership
  2. So much time was wasted searching
  3. I had made it mean so much
  4. It sent me into an energetic drain

I was NOT HERE for it…so I decided to step away and ask myself…

What is really the ROI?

Here are my learnings:

  1. The urge to check was bigger than I expected
  2. Referrals and this show continued to be the place where clients mostly come from.  Why?  Ability to build rapport and trust.  Think about where you go when you want to buy something from amazon.  You can listen to hundreds of women I’ve worked with here on the show.
  3. Metrics and data to drive decisions

With all of that said–I am back on social with a high-level perspective and calling myself out on stories.

And here is your reminder: social CAN NOT be the only place you rely on for business growth

Heya, I’m Amanda!

Coaching changed my life.

Coaching is in my blood. I became a coach for the 1st time at 15 when I coached 4-5 year old boys in a pee-wee basketball league. I then coached the hardest crowd ever as a high school teacher and coach, then added to my coaching resume Level 1 CrossFit Coach, Precision Nutrition Coach, and now Certified Master Life Coach, NLP and hypnotherapy practitioner. I have combined my 25 years of coaching into this program to help you become a better coach.
