Should I Stay or Should I Go Now?

My love/ hate relationship with Facebook Groups.

We all know that participating in Facebook groups can be great for business. Showing up and adding value, demonstrating your knowledge, supporting and encouraging fellow entrepreneurs, soaking up the wisdom from people in different fields.

When it all goes well. . .it’s a powerful resource, a way to stay connected, discover people doing seriously cool shit, get fresh perspectives and serve without an agenda.

At one point I belonged to 100+ Facebook groups and I’ve run a couple as well (admittedly they were very small and for a very specific purpose).

Here’s what I’ve learned about myself navigating the ever-changing landscape of Facebook groups as an entrepreneur.

You Were Made to Go Against The Grain

You are a radical dreamer, a sacred rebel and you want to make possible what others say can't be.

Behind the Name Heartlines

Even after 4 years now it still amazes me how a business name that I agonized over for MONTHS has turned out to be so perfect.

It was inspired from a Florence + the Machine song by the same name and the line that says  “Just keep following the heartlines on your hand, ‘cause I am.”

You see, I’ve always tended to overanalyze and overcomplicate just about anything and everything.  I mean, if I can possibly find a way to make my life more complicated…somehow I manage to do it.  As a kid, I was known for my intellect and it’s SO easy for me to get stuck in my head.  To retreat to the safety of my brain.

But following my heart…listening to my intuition?  That was strange magic.  Powerful and uncomfortable and yet whenever I did I always landed in a better place.
