It Takes a special kind of person to make a success of themselves yet remain humble and not look down their noses at other people. By a success, I don’t necessarily mean make huge pots of money because in my own very humble opinion being loaded doesn’t always make you a success as a person, it just makes you wealthy in cash terms. As nice as it is or would be to be rolling in huge amounts of dosh, and I am pretty sure Jodene shares my opinion, money does not amount to the be all and end all of life but being happy and confident and knowing that you are, does sure go a long way!
That is exactly what Jodene Shaer, partner in the business, Lifeology with Greg Arthur radiates; happiness and the confidence to show her vulnerabilities to the world through the medium of blogging, tweeting, facebooking, talking to people and showing the real Jodene to the world.
Jodene was the guest speaker at last night’s Monday Night Talk and she managed to hold her audience in the palm of her hand for over an hour whilst she chatted about her journey from school to present day. From the trials and tribulations of not knowing where you are going to finding your way and making a go of it. Not afraid to mention her fight to get her weight down, her broken heart and the hardships of finding real people out there in a superficial world, Jodene was forthright and brave enough to answer all of the questions that were thrown her way.
Whilst Jodene does not profess to be a social media guru she certainly has an insiders knowledge and huge insight into the world of twitter and Facebook. Asked for “Twitter” tips she responded with the following five points which I have made into 6 points:
1. Follow people back
2. Engage with people
3. Avoid negativity & drama
4. Make the most of every opportunity
5. Take a picture (or it never happened)
6. hang out with influencers
Sounds easy enough doesn’t it, maybe a little harder to get there than she made it seem. However, considering that last night I got to hang out with Jodene Shaer, David Graham, Greg Arthur, Jared Orlin and a whole bunch of others, there is photographic evidence, we engaged with everyone, kept the evening hugely positive and loved every minute of it, seems to me that pretty much sums up everything that Jodene was talking about last night…………….the tracks are laid, now for the steam train to roll on through!
We wish Jodene huge future success, go from strength to strength, stay positive and above all else stay the happy, humble person you are!
Thank you so much for your time last night for Monday Night Talk!
