Can you believe that we'll be in February this week? Where did January go? I don't know about you, but January has been so much fun. A little overwhelming, but I'm on it.
Do you have any top tips to overcome all this overwhelm? My top tip is to just stop and go for a walk. I have also deleted a load of emails and unsubscribed from LOADS of emails. You can unsubscribe from this, just scroll to the bottom.
But then you'll miss your 5 ideas each week.
And my little messages and that would a shame eh?
If you want to stay in touch, ask some questions, or just hang out I have my FREE LinkedIn Surgery next week. It's a safe Zoom for you to just drop in and ask me any questions and learn a few things too. I can also do a LIVE review of your profile, your posts or anything else you want me to look at with my LinkedIn Focussed Eye.
I'll obviously be sharing with everyone else, but then hey, that's how we learn right? Hit the button above or here to book your place. Limited to just 50
Good luck this week and I'll see you next Monday morning
You get out what you put in
If you cannot make next week, get your place booked for the next one on 6 March HERE
Here are my 5 ideas for you this week
Because not everyone can come up with content ideas I am keeping my commitment to bring you ideas every week. I want you to get confident with creating content, so just practice. If you are a little worried, then why not create your post in the 15 Minute Gang private LinkedIn group? Only a few hundred people can potentially see it. You can ask for opinions and if you tag me I'll give you feedback too. But you have to ask. Here are my five suggestions for this week. I even used Hug Day on Saturday because I couldn't think of something! These lists help me too! If you want to get even more inspiration then take a look at my weekly blog. Every week I share all my posts and the analytics and why I wrote each post. Feel free to borrow some of my ideas. Good luck
Raynaud's Awareness Month
Do you have this? I do. My fingers go bright white and tingly. It's the weirdest thing ever, but I didn't realise so many people suffer. I guess this is why it's featured in an awareness month. You can find out more here. If you have it or know someone with it, talk about it because not everyone realises that it is a thing. Do you have any tips for coping with it? How does it affect your day-to-day living? Why not invite other Raynauds suffered to a Zoom meeting or share some video of how your fingers change colour? Let's get some more awareness eh?
Why not do a reflective post about how your January was? Share your top tips for the month's end. Or maybe you have some cool things that you do on the 1st of every month. We'll be a twelfth of the year through so how does this impact your plans? And if you are an Accountant or Bookkeeper you've finished your tax return season, so what next? Are you going skiing?
6 Nations Rugby
Here we go again. Edge-of-the-seat stuff and all our nations battling it out on the rugby pitch. Who's gonna win? Do you go to the games? Why do you like rugby? Do you have a local club that you follow or is it just the 6 Nations that's your thing? Are you involved in grassroots rugby or do you encourage your children to play?
Time to Talk Day Do you talk to your family or friends? There's no excuse on 2 February as it's Time to Talk day. You can find out more here, but basically, it's the day we talk about mental health. It's a shame we have to have a day, but I guess it reminds us to think of others. Do you have any friends that you check in on? Do you have best practice tips to share? Or what about how someone helped you or vice-versa? Do you have any processes in place in your place of work or social circles? Take a Selfie If you are ever stuck on what to write about why not take a selfie? I did on Saturday and had so many people messaging me and engaging with my post. We like to see the real you, not that highly posed and edited profile picture that may be a year or two out. You can use the selfie to start a conversation about how you are feeling, what's happening, or maybe just a reminder of why you do what you do. My post on Saturday was saying about my happy place. Go on, share a selfie! FAQ I have just finished another LinkedIn Daily Habit Workshop and the best question from the 27th cohort was how many times should I post on LinkedIn Just start with 1 post a week and build up over time. By making the commitment to do one post a week you'll start thinking about content and this will get you tuned into what you need to do and you can build up to a level that works with your busy life. I'm a LinkedIn trainer so I really need to do one a day. But because I do one a day I find it pretty easy and second nature, in fact as I write this I have forgotten to do my Burns night selfie. I'll do that in the week. I often take a photo and think I can use this one day. Get your camera out right now and see what inspires you!! If you have other ideas to help me next week, please, please, please get in touch. I'll credit you in my Monday Nudge and on my blog pages as a thank you. I am here to help so if you have any questions please drop me a DM on LinkedIn. Don't forget my video explaining all of the above. Sunny Video Today WATCH HERE Have fun! That's what it's about eh?
Remember what you need to do each day? It's all about creating a habit!
You should aim to do most of these actions every day!!
