Back in May, I announced that I was diversifying Soshable. Something was brewing in me and something was being lost at the same time. I believed that I needed to diversify in order to regain my passion. In the course of doing so, I realized that diversifying wasn’t the exact right answer.
When speaking to my mother, I get a sense of the attitude of many people in her age group. She refers to social media in general as “that Facebook” and displays a genuine and deep seated dislike for anything related to the field. Imagine her chagrin when I began my career as a social media writer. While she was pleased for me, and my ability to express myself and make money from my true passion, she is still quite skeptical about how social media can be a positive thing. I’ve made it my one-woman mission to show her.
