Recently, at a meetup, a lovely woman (yes, not only 20 somethings are into social) confessed she was worried she wasn’t keeping up with the trends and wanted to try [insert new, fancy, social platform here] but didn’t know how. The men responded with very logical answers about making time, putting it on your daily agenda, and fitting it into your schedule. Sounds right.
As a woman, my intuition kicked in.
Raising my hand in a very non-powerful, meek way, I waited patiently for my turn to speak. I turned around, looked her in the eye, and said, “It sounds to me like you’re motivated but afraid. Maybe you need [the social media version of] a walking buddy.”
Boom. I saw in her eyes that I had hit the nail on it’s proverbial head.
