Here’s wishing you a beautiful weekend and a super special week ahead!

On a personal note, this weekend I’m excited to go off the grid to attend a 2.5-day small group retreat in a peaceful setting. It’s time for more JOMO – joy of missing out!! (No FOMO or FOBO for me, ha! Fear of missing out, or fear of being offline.) Well, tbh, it is still a process to get my self-talk to a place where I’m genuinely comfortable taking a stretch of time off the internet and my iPhone!



P.S. Are you coming to Social Media Marketing World in sunny San Diego, California on March 25th to 27th? I’d love to meet you there.
