“If you’re trying to speak to everyone, you’re speaking to no one!”
I’m sure you’ve heard this ad nauseam but it’s SO true! Stop trying to capture everyone and nurture who you have!
In my video today, which is sort of a rant style, I decided to show you how to discover if your message is clear enough for your audience to know exactly what you do right away.
Never underestimate the power of your message. People have to know what it is and whether its for them or not. If they aren’t getting this then you’re missing them altogether!
How do you test your message? Leave it in the comments below!

There are 4 phases to this journey of unleashing your ‘something’ amazing: The idea, starting, building and maintaining.
I’ve been there and I want to help you the best way I can each and every time you watch my videos or consume my content.
I want to explain each one and what I’d like from you today is to tell me which phase you think you are in and what you’d like to get from this channel.
1. The idea/exploratory phase:
You don’t have anything created, you haven’t started the process to become an organization. You might be unsure of where to start, maybe doing some research…could be working a full time job. Research deciding whether you should be nonprofit or for profit, social entrepreneur, can i sustain myself.
2. The Starting Phase:
If you’re in the starting phase- You are actually starting to create the organization. You’ve made the decision move forward whether full or part time. You are in the process of reserving your name, creating your mission or vision, deciding on your board of directors
3. The Building Phase:
You have applied for your nonprofit status or become a corporation and now you need people to find out about what you’re doing, how you’re going to structure your organization. Processes that need to be created, sustainability methods, how to use social media, giving your organization structure
4. The Maintaining Phase:
This is the true unleashing period of your something amazing. You now have your nonprofit, you are fine tuning, looking at scaling, putting your head down and accomplishing that big audacious goal so you may be finding your audience, focusing on getting noticed and getting your message out, creating a social media presence, pulling it all together. Looking at things like partnerships and sustainability methods.
Now that you know the 4 phases of unleashing your something amazing I’d like you to tell me in the comments what phase you think you are in and at least one piece of information you’d like to learn from this channel at this point.

Today I’m going to be talking to you about Twitter!
I have not used twtiter in a very long time and I actually try very hard not to start on a social channel without keeping it up (guilty) but here is one place i have failed at that horribly. I just didn’t think 140 characters was enough.
So why now right?
Why October? Well, simply because I have a little more time, I’m a bit more organized and I know that I want to do this thang for my something amazing, LaunchPad 4 Kids, Inc. and The Socialife 100 percent! So I better walk the talk.
