So I did it.  I deactivated my facebook.  And I made a video about it.

And there’s been more thoughts that come to mind….

There’s this expectation for someone – a business owner — to post on Facebook a lot.

There’s this expectation that they are going to share free information.

Like, all the time.

By what kind of business operates like that?

That you’re constantly giving out free information?

One where if you are not top of mind in someone’s head that they’re going to forget you?

The feeling that you have to keep sharing to “entice someone” which is really a constant trying to draw them in, constant trying to get them to like you, to see your value.

The whole thing is terrible.

Oh and what kind of business runs expecting someone to work/post online for free… all the time?

For non-paying clients?

The whole thing is ridiculous.

I’m glad I’m off of it.

I already feel much more free.

And just like that I’ve also come up with new things I need to work on in my business.

There’s more of a focus on productivity — letting me create — rather than trying to “rope” people in.

People who will probably never get “roped” in unless you offer them something that’s $10 or less.

The whole thing is ridiculous.

The idea on there is to find people to hang out with… while you should be doing work.

What a novel idea?  To actually do work, when you are at work?

Rather than fuck around on Facebook?


Fantastic.  Go me.

Proud of myself.
