Being an introvert, it takes me a while to warm up to people and groups. Yes, even on the internet with keyboard confidence. After months of being a member in the Sassy Suite’s premium coaching group, Suite SassyPants I’ve finally said goodbye lurker status. And, gosh, it feels good!!!
saying goodbye to lurker status
Since making the leap to being engaged in the pants instead of holding onto lurker status, I’ve noticed grow with both my tribe and my LuLaRoe business. I decided to start engaging more in other groups too and I am making those PERSONAL connections that we all know are vital to our businesses.
Nothing wrong with being an introvert, but if you fall into lurker status, I encourage you to introduce yourself and start commenting on posts. Even if it’s just an emoji. Then turn off the notifications because those things can be overwhelming! Start off small and build, commenting more each week and interacting with the other group members!!
You get out what you put into it
Here’s the thing: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it! At my day job, I tell my students this all the time because it relates so much to their collegiate experience. With a dose of my own medicine, I went all in–to the point that I signed myself up to be a guest coach in the pants. I used my five seconds of courage by signing up for that guest coaching spot in Suite SassyPants. And then I worried about it for a week because I didn’t want to suck in front of my friends.
Well, the day came, my live happened, and I didn’t die. I managed to make it through that 20 minute video without vomiting. The other guest coaches were so encouraging of each other and it felt good to have them on my side. Because of the support I was given, I made damn sure to give them all support, hearts, likes, comments, etc. It meant so much to me when they were giving me all the virtual love and I wanted them to feel that same love!
once you pop, you can’t stop
Once I took my lurker status cape off, I haven’t stopped interacting with people in the pants and the other Sassy Suite groups. I enjoy helping the new socialites in The Socialite Suite and showing them the ropes to not being a spammy direct sales business owner. Connecting with those in the Elite Suite over lightbulbs and gifs makes my heart happy. However, I love hanging out with those in Suite SassyPants because it’s the first group that I can throw my hair into a topknot, roll up my sleeves, and get to work on my business. For my pants sisters, y’all know it’s all fun and games until we have homework to do because Momma Pants ain’t for the weak. She challenges us to grow and learn not only as direct sellers and small business owners, but as people.
Put your SassyPants on!
If you’re ready to grow your business and your networks, I encourage you to join us over in Suite SassyPants. If you’re brand new to this world, head over to The Socialite Suite! And if you know someone who could calm down their spam, send them to The Socialite Suite too! It shows you support their business and you might help them keep a few Facebook friends!
