The Villainous ways of your Favorite Social Media Hero

I sunk $6K into my social media hero to learn these lessons so you don’t have to.

Not all heroes wear capes, but villains do have social media accounts.

As a productivity coach who serves solopreneurs, it is my duty to share ways to conquer those who seek to hold power over you and your business.

Think your favorite social media guru isn’t holding power over you?

Come closer my precious solopreneur, let me tell you a story.

A hero serves the people, while a villain only serves their purpose.

Being a part of FB groups within the coaching world grants me the opportunity to see a lot of things behind the scenes. Stuff that makes my skin crawl when seeing the way some don’t serve their communities.

For example, I paid $6K to join a certain coaches program. It came with hours of lessons, a weekly group call, and access to a private FB group. This program was from a coach, who coaches other coaches… yeah, they got me.

Now seeing that this is a method that many use in the online space, I refuse to coach other coaches. My work is best served with solopreneurs who are service providers across a spectrum of business types.

Anyway, before I get to my own personal $6K lesson, let me share with you a lesson I gathered from someone else's experience.

This lady in the group posted one day asking about email marketing. The coach who taught this program educated you on how to get clients via IG. Yeah, you’re supposed to pander to IG all day every day in order to get money in your bank account. (Foolish if you ask me)

How do you think this coach responded to someone asking about email marketing? Just about how you’d expect an IG expert too. By telling them not to worry about email marketing and just follow the program by getting clients on IG. Do that, and you won’t have to worry about email marketing ever.

Bad advice here. First, because we don’t own IG. So, if they get clients there, but don’t have their information, then get kicked off, welp, there goes their business.
