The Story Behind the Course
Hi, I’m Alex.
12 years ago, I quit my full-time job and decided to start my own business. Several mentors told me, “You need to be active on social media! It’s the best way to find clients and customers.”
I figured they were probably right. So, I set up accounts on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Vine (remember Vine?), pretty much every platform imaginable.
I spent the next few years posting a lot—multiple times a day—trying to accumulate a big social media following. I told myself, “I have to do this. Building a social media presence is mandatory if I want to be a successful entrepreneur.”
However, over time, I noticed myself getting increasingly obsessed with social media. It began to feel like social media was using me—not the other way around.

With this course, we’re not trying to convince you that you “should” or “must” leave social media.
However, we want to show you that you have options. You can keep using social media. You can quit or cut back. You can include social media in your marketing plan—or not. You can have a beautiful career and successful business, with or without social media.
There are hundreds of ways to find clients and customers and bring revenue in the door. Social media is one option, but it is not the only option. There are plenty of other things you can do.
