After two years of really putting myself out there and playing in the online marketing space, I have had a few run-ins with online trolls.
They often come uninvited with their unsolicited attitudes and opinions.
It doesn't matter what you are doing online, if you put yourself and your business out for the world to see, unfortunately, you run the risk of being trolled.
Heck, if Mother Theresa had an online presence…I reckon she'd get trolled…HARD.
Looking back now, I realise that my first mistake was that I instantly reacted without much thought and also took what was said too personally.
If this happens to you, the first step is to take a deep breath.
Know that their comments ARE NOT a reflection of your self-worth!
Which brings me to this week's tip – is fear of putting yourself out there on Facebook (or anywhere) preventing you from growing?
