I have a confession to make. I have been holding back. There are so many things we can share with our audience here, at LMNts Marketing, but there are always things that hold us back. If you have never read the book Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway, Google it right now. I was pointed in the right direction by my business coach, Tony Mazzotti, and we discussed the book in detail in our book club. It made me realise that things that are the hardest to do will generate the most results in your business.
So I started an online group and went Live! The first time.

- Despite my Vitiligo
- Despite my fear.
- Despite my Accent
And it was great.
I created a Facebook group and asked experts to talk about social media marketing and give members advice on how to manage their accounts better. This week, my great friend from Blue Giraffe to do a live for me. As I had a viral infection and looked like death warmed up, she was happy to jump in and provide some valuable social media advice for my members.
Would you like to join the group? There are plenty of tips and discussions going on, and I am planning to interview some of the best experts on social media marketing.
Feeling the Fear
When I did my first live in another group, #Fearlesslives, I was very nervous. I didn’t know what to do, but after I hit the button, it was fine. The more you think about doing something the more you work yourself up. I have been there.
I passed my driving test when I was over 30. I was absolutely terrified of motorways. I didn’t know how to overcome it. I was even scared of getting in the car and go around the corner. Why? Because I gave my mind time to worry. If you just do it and acknowledge the fear, you will stop thinking about what could go wrong.
Helping You Overcome the Things That Hold You Back from Succeeding In Social Media

There are different things that have been holding our clients back from making their social media marketing work.
- Lack of knowledge
- Lack of focus
- Lack of time
We work with loads of business coaches, and they often worry about upsetting people. They want to be there and give their best, but that is often not what their clients want.
Most of our customers are sole traders and they are good at what they do. They don’t know anything about social media, though. They click the “boost button” on Facebook, and nothing happens. They give up.
Other customers simply don’t have the right focus. They are busy working in their business, and cannot create a strategy. We help them identify their ideal clients to target with social media marketing.
When it comes to managing their social media, however, time is the greatest challenge for most small business owners. They simply can’t take a productive hour or two out of their busy schedule. That is why we created our affordable social media management packages. They generate results, add people to sales funnels, and save up to 10 hours per week.
If you would like to make the most out of your social media, you should join our Facebook group Small and Medium Sized Business Owners Digital Marketing Advice Tips. You will be supported by the team of LMNts Marketing and other professionals and likeminded business owners. You should also make use of our free resources and download them to make your marketing easier to manage.
