Is social media doing more harm than good in your business + life? — Ep. 89

by | Mar 22, 2021 | Podcast

Social media is a big deal—especially for entrepreneurs—but also just in everyday life, which is why I’m dedicating an entire episode to it!

Social media can be a powerful tool for small businesses to build a brand, connect with their audience, and boost awareness and leads. However, it also can have a negative impact on small businesses when not used intentionally.

In this episode, I share some of the things I re-learned when I took a step away from social media and how my approach to social media is changing both for my business and life so I can make the most of my time and energy. 

“Time is something we have to consider and so is our energy as a return of investment.” – Shawn Mynar

“The more external noise we have, the harder it is for us hear our own inner voice, for us to tap into our own intuition.” – Shawn Mynar

“As entrepreneurs and business owners, we are in the business of creation and social media could potentially make it way harder for you to tap into your own creative spark when you are looking at everybody else’s work.” – Shawn Mynar
