Your Next Chapter: What would simplifying your work going into 2023 look like?

I will share a kind of “case study” with you, using myself as an example.

What did simplifying my work going into 2023 look like for me?

To start, I paused and let go of some long-held beliefs and habits that haven’t served me well.

I want to clarify before I go any further that I know that long held beliefs and habits are unique to each of us as individuals and what simplifying would look like to me, might not look the same to you. With that in mind, I will give you an example of how I have simplified my work…

The two places that you will can find my offerings and updates are my new website and LinkedIn; and, when I announce an event, it will be through LinkedIn, my email list, and Eventbrite. 

I won’t be on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Alignable, Meetup, TikTok, Clubhouse or any other platform that I might not have mentioned. I am keeping my presence simple and straightforward and my marketing as well.

Over the years, I have measured the return on investment of time and money in being on multiple platforms, updating and maintaining content consistency across all platforms, as well as creating communities. The level of engagement on the platforms or in the communities, quite frankly, just wasn’t there for all the work that went into maintaining the content and the communities. So—I have let go….

The decision to just have a website and engage full out only on LinkedIn feels right. So that is what 2023 is going to be like for me.

What about you? Are there ways that you can simplify that will feel right for you?

I look forward to hearing what they might be!

Wishing you all the best and a Happy New Year,
