Painful Lessons I Learned In My First Year of My Social Media Management Business [ep. 6]



January 6, 2023



Here’s what you can expect from this episode:

Rome wasn’t built in a day and my social media management business didn’t skyrocket to success to a six-figure business overnight. In my first year alone I learned the most painful lessons, fought through some tough situations, and came out better for it on the other side. I’m sharing these with you in hopes that you could potentially avoid making the same mistakes I made. Some are inevitable and come with the “growing a social media business territory”. Even so, this episode is to normalize making mistakes, and failures and learning from them. Instagram is just a highlight reel, and running a business is not all sunshine and rainbows.

In this episode I bare all about the reality of energy-sucking clients, how to create boundaries, the untold truth of growing too quickly, and how that shook my business to its core, lost me half of my clients and forced me to search for a 9-5 job just to be able to pay the rent. 

Keen to know how I overcame it? Listen to my advice so that you can not make the same mistakes I did, or at least learn from them more quickly. I really hope it helps you maintain creating a profitable and sustainable social media management business without all of the scars and bruises!
