Dear the Virgo Girl,
by Dr. Walter Hidalgo | Advice on Life and Wellness while living in a Social Media Driven World
Q: I am over fifty and have to use social media for my business but I often get high anxiety over it because I don’t know how to keep up with the trends or manage the pages effectively, what should I do to keep from being overwhelmed?
A: This is interesting to me because this is where the teacher is no longer the teacher, but the student. I suggest two things.
A) Partner up with a young person (family, friend, etc.) and get pointers/lessons from them. You’d be surprised how knowledgeable our young people are (not to mention they are willing to help!).
B) YouTube is a great (FREE) resource that has tons of tutorials that can help you with your social media needs and beyond. All in all, the most important thing that I want you to take from this is not to feel overwhelmed. That is to say, just because the internet/social media is fast paced does not mean you have to be. Learn the process and steps that are necessary before you “ride the internet wave.”
