Today’s episode is a question I get asked all the time. The question is, “Katie, how can I be present and in the moment, but still thinking about how to document and post on social media?” I’m going to share with you just a few tips on how I think of this as a business owner and also as a parent.
First of all, I think you need to have a clear definition of where you want to be on social media. I don’t think you have to be everywhere. I think you pick one or two and you go all in.
The second thing is I recommend having a clearly defined reason for being on each platform. And not just a clearly defined reason, a clearly defined audience of who’s on social media and what content you post on social media.
The other tip I will give you is that sometimes you don’t have to document everything. This is coming from a social media person. Sometimes it’s best just to put the phone down. As much as I love social media, we don’t have to be on it all the time. We don’t have to document everything. You don’t want to document something just for the sake of feeling like you have to post to social media.

I know this was a little bit longer than most of my videos, but I really wanted to share how I kind of think about this process of being in the moment, but also documenting and using social media to share what you do and why you love what you do.
A lot of this just comes back to your plan of why you use social media and how you use it with the right platforms. How do you balance being present and posting to social media? I’d love to hear! Leave us a comment below.
