Like everyone we are bombarded with social media day in day out. Some political updates silly cat videos and other less interesting stuff.
I know a lot of people look at social media thinking “what a waste of time”, well it is when you get sucked into some of the shizzle people post. “Worthless meaningless posts”, I mean we cannot afford time on things that don’t add value to our lives can we.
Daily I get contact by people trying to “sell me their stuff” you know the thing, your website needs updating or we can help you with this or that. I had one such private message a few months ago here is how it went.
“Hello can you tell me a bit more about your networking group!”, so I looked at the persons profile and noticed he was in India. I thought oh this is a new way of trying to draw me in , I had a few mails that week and was a little frustrated with it, so I replied
“What you trying to sell me as not really interested”.
“no am really interested tell me more”,
oh this guy is not giving up is he. So I thought ill give ya the information and explained what we did where we met and what the benefits were of being involved. I ended the message saying
“As your in Delhi I’ve no idea why you would want to know” yeah I was a little abrupt.
A few weeks passed and this guy walks into my group and introduces himself, I nearly chocked on my coffee, yep he had come from Delhi to MY group. He explained he was an entrepreneurial had decided not to go to university but get out there go meet other entrepreneurs, network and see what business was like in the real world.
We’ve become really good friends to the extent I am an admin and contributor to his Facebook page “Learnsmart” . Its been a really interesting experience with people ive never met in Delhi corresponding with me and asking
“kirk when you coming to India we need you here , looking forward to meeting you”.
Its crazy, people that live thousands of miles away are aware of me interested in what I have to say and want to meet me.
Yeah so Social media is a waste of time when you don’t use it right or just post meaningless topics or post.
I am sure at some point in the future ill be posting some photos and video from Delhi
