Okay…It’s really happening. My co-partners and myself are opening a coffee shop in 2 months. And it is official, I am leaving my current employer to dive in head first as the main barista and full-time everything else. So in saying that, I am responsible for social media.
YIKES! I am an introvert and not really good at sharing my thoughts or my life. I never have, even as a teenager I didn’t even tell my parents I was going to the store to get snacks – I would just leave. Hell, they did not even know about my first marriage. Social media is a huge stretch for myself and I have no idea what I am doing.
My wife is a wonderful person and people flock to her in crowds, I am quite the opposite. I run to people and when I am overwhelmed, I just as easily run away. Sharing myself, I feel like, is sacred and not everyone deserves it. But I am going to have to get over myself. I threw myself into blogging over a year ago because I knew one day this exact situation would come. I have to start sharing. I have read books and taken courses in Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram – Plus I asked my younger siblings to catch me up on SnapChat. What the hell!?! I feel so overwhelmed. Now it is time to just get it done. I am not only putting out a brand for myself, but also a brand that represents a business with 2 other people involved. The pressure. I do not want to let those 2 down, they have invested and still working a 9-5 to make sure I can make this business successful. Be looking for posts in social media from the BuzzedBadger and his friendenemy Ducklipinthedark.
