I want my order, do you care that I am having a bad day?

I have had many conversations and read plenty of articles on social media business etiquette and what to discuss on social media outlets that represent your business.  Some say, don’t mix business with personal because no one cares if you are going through anything.  I have also heard the other side that it is nice to show your personal side because everyone wants to know that you are human, but can you sometimes share too much?

My question to the readers – If I am having a bad day, do you really want to know?  Or do you just want your order! I can hear some of you saying, save the drama give me my merchandise. 🙂

It goes without saying that personal issues do come up, but I have learned that in business  no one really cares what’s going on behind the scenes.  If you are trying to run a successful business people want to hear how your business is evolving and hear about the great new products you will be offering, right? Tell me if I am wrong, please!!!

Through my business social platforms, I keep it up beat.  I throw a little personal in every once in a while because as a Mompreneur we all have children we are raising and it is nice to have a conversation about all the wacky things are children do.  But most of all, I keep it light.

I want to hear from the consumer and Mompreneurs/Entrepreneurs.  There are so many opinions on the subject, I would love to hear where you stand on the issue.

Great new belts for toddler and kids coming soon from Cute Beltz!
