Day 21-Do Something. Anything.

Welcome to Day 21 of the 21 Days to a More Engaging Facebook Presence Series


(Click here to watch in FullScreen HD)
If you’ve made it this far, I just want to say thank you for sticking with it.

You’ve heard what the purpose of the series was for the last 20 Days, so I wanted to take this last video to talk to you about my personal reasons for why I decided to do this series for you.

With any business, it’s great when you start

You have all sort of passion and drive and you have to prove to yourself that you can make it work. When you hit those first milestones you get so excited and it keeps you driven.

But eventually you get bored.

Once you’ve hit those milestones time and time again, you get that high paying client, you get a certain amount of base line , you make a video tutorial every week, your business can get stale.

It feels like you’re saying the same stuff over and over again, and you’re doing the same things over and over again. And you don’t necessarily know what to do. You know if you keep doing the same thing, you’ll drive yourself nuts.

Sure you know how to maintain what you thought was impossible in the first place, and you might even be able to do a little more than that. But even pushing just a little bit doesn’t help you recapture the feeling of accomplishment.

That’s really my reason for doing this series.

Yes of course I wanted to help you, but if I’m being totally honest with you, from a total selfish standpoint I had to commit myself to something that I thought would be impossible just to see if I could do it.

But in order to really be satisfied, there had to be a higher standard. I had to overcome resistance.  I wanted to make sure you weren’t getting just standard run of the mill information here, you deserve better than that.

I wanted to give you high quality stuff that if you roll with it will help you really connect with your customers. I know this, because in just doing some of this stuff while demonstrating for the videos it helped me to connect with you better.

It wasn’t easy. There were days I had no idea what I was going to talk about.

Heck before we even started this series, I had said two days before that I need to plan it out, but couldn’t find the time, but still had to put something out on Day 1 because if I didn’t do it then, I knew I would find 106 excuses not do it.

I have a full time client work, coaching sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and at the time of this recording a 9 month old son and a wedding in two months.

There were plenty of legitimate reasons to not dive headlong into this.

But I couldn’t keep feeling like my business wasn’t going to grow. I couldn’t stand the feeling of getting bored. And I hated that for the past couple of months, I felt like giving up and doing something “safe”.

 If you’re getting bored with your business.

But here’s what I’m getting at, if this is you. If you’re getting bored, or your not seeing growth, or feeling 100% satisfied with your business.

Do something.

Anything.

Fix your about page, rewrite your Twitter Bio, start writing that manifesto you’ve been talking about.

Compile your old blog posts and make an ebook, record a rant on video about something that drives you crazy.

Start a series, read a book, respond to a bunch of comments on someone else’s blog. Find something new and share it with the world. Do a live Q&A session. Experiment with new media formats.

Learn. Grow. Evolve

The purpose of this series was not just to help you to develop deeper relationships with your customers, it was to help me reconnect with my own passion for what I do, and if you’ve been feeling lethargic, do something.

Raise your bar.

It’s going to take more than you thought was possible, but it’s absolutly worth it. In giving more than you thought possible, you’ll learn more about yourself and how you want to shape your business too.

For the longest time my tagline has been I blog. I beatbox. I get the asses in the seats. and I’ve loved that, but talking about all of the mission stuff in the second half of the series has helped me to realize that isn’t something people can connect to.

Through this series, I have discovered my own mission

Which has been something I’ve struggled to define for almost two years.

So really, if you’ve been feeling like your business is just at a comfortable lull, do something dramatic and see if by the end of it you don’t feel a whole new passion and a much clearer image of what it is you want to do.

And that’s it, That’s the end of the 21 Days to a More Engaging Facebook presence series.

Thank you so much for sticking with it and I hope that you’ve gotten a lot out of it. While the purpose of this series wasn’t focused on “Get More Fans” if you are interested in kicking up the growth of your Fan Base I will be conducting a 3 part paid webinar series over at 21days.tv that will focus purly on growth.

So if you’re interested go over there and check it out.

And as always if you believe in this series please share it, and if you haven’t already liked my page you can do so by clicking on the top left hand corner of this video or by going to my page at Facebook.com/tommyismyname

Hey man – I’m fired up and ready to go. Thanks for all the work you put into this. It definitely came at the right time as I’ve been exploring facebook for business… thinking it might have a better potential to get me going faster than with a full-fledged site. I really liked the tips on building a community (never knew you could search like that).
take care.

p.s fyi for future reference – I know my eyes are getting older but the videos seemed blurry (both versions). Also, any thought on turning the series into downloadable audio?

Thanks John! I’m glad you were able to get a lot out of the series. You’re not crazy or getting old though, for some reason the encoding on the videos do make it blurry. The only way to get the not blurry version is to click on the full screen link over to facebook, then click the HD button on the player over there.

I would have uploaded them via Youtube, but that seemed a little counter to the entire program had I not used Facebook video :-/

Going strictly audio isn’t something I had considered before, but it certainly is something that can be done. Some of the videos are a little outdated now (and the series only came out in July!) so that could be a good way to update the outdated videos.
