Social media can sometimes be a loud Wild West, full of differing opinions and perspectives which makes it easy to get swept up in the content, comments, and emotions that come with it.

But as business owners who are regularly social media, how can we become less reactive to what we see and more mindful of the impact social media can have on our emotions?

In this episode, we talk about:

  • What Stoicism is and how we can apply it in business
  • Navigating differing opinions online
  • How to utilize emotional intelligence to communicate effectively on social media
  • Internal strategies to train ourselves to be less reactive and more intentional
  • Our opinions on cancel culture
