Today’s audio diary is called Be Kind Socially.

So this means when you’re on social media outlets (like Facebook or Twitter or anyone of the numerous ones out there today), and you’re talking about business, start praising some of your colleagues. Talk about them in a positive light. Do not worry that “Oh my gosh, they’re my competitors. They’re going to take my business away from me.” Because here’s the bottom line: people gravitate towards all different kinds of people. And most people will seek more than one mentor, especially if it’s in a different niche.

You cannot be everything to everyone. That’s why in Working Moms Only, we have an expert panel. Because I have experts who have much more experience in certain areas than I do. And I want to make sure that I give my community the best possible advice.

So you see on Facebook that I praise other experts out there. They are people who I believe are doing good at servicing their community and helps servicing my community. And they know what they’re talking about.

So please do not be afraid to praise your competitors in public. It really makes you look great.
