Podcast – Is Social Media Making You Unhappy?

Social Media: How to Set Boundaries for Success

Have you ever gotten sucked into the endless spiral of social media? Are you sick of wasting time scrolling, but you don’t know how to stop? Social media consumes a lot of our energy. In order to be truly creative and lift others up with our own content, we need to detach from this habit of taking in everybody else’s. Chalene shares the boundaries she has when it comes to social media that don’t affect the success of her business.

A month ago, my son Brock, who is still in his first years of building his business, told me that he was going to be signing off of social media for the duration of his football season. When he told me this, right away I was like “WHATTTT?”. It took me by complete surprise that he thought this would be a good idea in the early stages of his business. But then he talked me through his decision and why it was what he needed. I then came to the realization that he knew what he was doing. To hear more about his social media detox and his progress with it today (a month in), you’ve got to listen in!
