Monday Notes: 5 Suggestions Before Asking Someone to Follow Your Business on Social Media(a reblog) — K E Garland

A few months ago, a friend asked me to follow her on social media because she’s re-branding and doing new things.

week 46

Energy is currency. When you ‘pay’ attention to something, you’re buying an experience. It’s an investment so spend carefully  and only on things that will bring you a good return. Be selective. Treat your time with as much care as your finances. It’s equally as valuable. -unknown ❤
