Speaker 1:

Atlanta Banks. The other day I made a post that ruffled some feathers on social media, and the post actually was a story on Instagram was about how the thing that's holding most entrepreneurs especially coaches back on social media is the same thing that's holding most people back in most places, and that is their own attitude and beliefs.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, very much so.

Speaker 1:

Feathers ruffled.

Speaker 2:

Well, I guess the feathers are ruffled because you kind of touched on a sore point, because people don't ever want to think that they're the ones that are standing in the way of their success, right?

Speaker 1:

Although I mean our listeners are coaches, so maybe they are more understanding.

Speaker 2:

Maybe, yeah, Well, understanding. But then it's almost kind of like you know, you feel like you've done the work to get over the thing and then you realize, oh, maybe I haven't, there's more to be done.

Speaker 1:

Ooh, yeah. And then your social media coach is like go get coaching and hypnosis for your limiting beliefs. And you're like, oh, what Me? Yeah, today we're going to talk about the top 15. I don't know if we're going to have time to get to all of them, the top 15 limiting beliefs that coaches have, specifically about social media that can and will prevent them from reaching the levels of success at the speed that they want if they're not resolved. Now, of course, not all of these will apply to everybody, but a lot of these will apply to a lot of people.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Let's just get into it.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, let's jump right in, let's do it, it's a great. It's a really good list.

Speaker 1:

This is a really good.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, it's really good.

Speaker 1:

Vetted by both of us. Yeah and yeah, I'm actually. I like this list so much that, separate from the podcast, I'm going to do a training for the members of my social media membership, going through specifically these Mm yeah. Don't try to stop me, I'm going to do it.

Speaker 2:

Okay, not stopping you.

Speaker 1:

Don't stand in my way. Banks All right. Number one Number one. Number one. Number one who know is I'm too old to understand social media. Some people have this belief I'm too old to understand social media and remember. Limiting beliefs could be beliefs that you have, that you're consciously aware of or that you don't realize are kind of running in the background, and either way, they're going to inhibit your ability to be successful. And sometimes the way these manifest is that social media, just you know, feels painful to use and maybe you don't fully understand why. And it could be that one or more of these limiting beliefs are running under the surface. So you know, if there's, if there's a, if you feel a little sting or you feel some kind of response, internal response, when you hear these limiting beliefs, or you or you're like, but that's true, you know the part of you is like, but that's true, then that's good evidence that you might have these beliefs and you need to get get it cleaned up.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Okay. So the first one, as I said, is I'm too old for social media and I think the kind of the other benefit of just listening, to this episode is that we're. You know, we're demystifying these limiting beliefs and telling you that none of these things are true, that we're going to go through. These are myths as much as they are limiting beliefs. Nobody's too old for social media. Some of the best users of social media are people who are in, you know, I don't know what you would call it their senior years, whatever the term is, older folks, I don't know. But you know, there's people who are very young, who are not very effective on social media, and there's people who are very old or old you know, these are relative terms, of course who are very effective on social media. I would say your willingness to learn. Your willingness to learn is a much, much, much, much, much more important predictor of whether you'll be successful on social media or not.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, your willingness to learn. So you know, if you have this belief that you're too old for social media, maybe it's the people that you're watching too like. Maybe for you, social media synonymous with, like, you know, your kids or your grandchildren or something like that, but there's a lot of seniors on Instagram, for example. We can use that. So why don't you surround yourself or start following older people so that you know you can almost like, demystify it yourself?

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

That's kind of like, I think, a cool strategy that you could do, like stop following all the young people and look at you know, people that are around your age who are rocking it.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, and I mean social media. Learning to be effective on social media is no different than learning anything else.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

If you want to learn how to you know ride a motorcycle and you've never done it your whole life and you're now in your 70s or 80s, you can do that.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

In fact, it's probably easier to learn social media than to learn to ride a motorcycle, because you know you can do it in the comfort of sitting in a chair. Right, yeah, okay.

Speaker 2:

So that one I lost it what's? Number two. Number two I don't have anything interesting to share. Interesting, I feel like, as a business owner, like a coach, for example, this is a limiting belief that you must overcome, because think about how much stuff you have to share. Like you have so much interesting stuff to share If you didn't have a business and you were just sharing stuff about your life, okay maybe. But if you're a coach, a hypnotist you know, a hypnotherapist you've got more than enough content to start sharing today.

Speaker 1:

I think the way this one manifests in people is and it's still the same limiting belief, but it's every. You know. Other people have already said everything that I have to say about my niche or my thing, like if you're a hypnotherapist or a coach, while there's so many great hypnotherapists and coaches on YouTube and Instagram. They've all said everything about the unconscious mind and all this stuff already, and the response to that is it does not matter. Your future clients need to hear it specifically from you, right, yeah, yeah, everybody, myself included. We're all you know. I teach. I'm teaching social media. Now. There's a million other people who teach similar stuff to me, but my clients, my students, want to hear it specifically from me Because they know me, they like me, they trust me, they like the way I deliver information and they'd rather hear it from me than somebody else, right, yeah? So, yes, you have interesting things to share and no, it doesn't matter if somebody else has said it already. Your clients, your people, need to hear it from you.

Speaker 2:

Exactly.

Speaker 1:

So number three? Number three is only viral content is successful. Only viral content is successful or only content that goes viral is going to equal revenue or profit for you on social media. This is a myth. This is a limiting belief. It's not true. You can make plenty of sales with very limited followers, very limited views, very limited reach on social media, as long as you're charging decent prices and you're reaching some people who are, who actually want what you have.

Speaker 2:

This is an interesting one because I watched, I saw a reel this woman put up. It was really funny. She ended up going viral with this one reel. Okay, ended up getting like tons of new followers and everything, anyway. Then I ended up going to her account to be like who is this person? Because this whole reel that she did went so viral and she ended up doing a post about like a week later saying who she was and what she does for a living and how this post went viral for her. And she got all these new followers and she was like and she's an artist actually, and she was like going viral resulted in zero sales. Nobody's interested in her artwork. It was completely just a fluke and a total vanity metric. Like she was like this is so cool that I've got all these followers now, but it's not helping me whatsoever. So that just goes to show that you could go viral and get all these amazing new followers, but doesn't mean they're going to translate into clients. You're better off speaking to your audience, engaging with them right, nurturing those relationships that you know are going to actually turn into clients, than like thinking about how can I create content that's going to go viral.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, absolutely so. That's a great example, right. And then, likewise, you and I both know lots of coaches who are very, very small, following on social media, but are making lots of money. Certain people you know, a small audience, but an engaged.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, that's more important, right. You want to have that engaged audience over virality. I would say yeah Cool. All right. Number four is I need a huge following to make an impact. So that kind of rolls into what we were just talking about, right, very?

Speaker 1:

closely related to the last one. We kind of addressed that one already. It's really not true. I personally know at least one coach who makes eight figures a year and up until recently she had less than a thousand followers on Instagram. And I know many coaches who have a small following on social media, but it's an engaged following and they're highly profitable. So no need for a big ton of followers. Yeah, let's look at the next one, Number five social media is just a trend. Social media is just people. Some people still think this oh, it's going to, it's a bad, it's going to pass by. I love the internet, but I don't need to use social media. You know what? These days things, the balance is tipped and basically, if you're not on social media, you're not really on the internet. Yeah, I agree, that's my bold statement If you're not using social media, you're not really using the internet, right? Yeah, it's like getting on the highway with a bicycle If you're not in a car, you're not really using the highway, you're just kind of there. And if you want to be discoverable and you will not have a presence online, a big, huge, probably the biggest part of that is having a presence on social media in 2023. And it's only going to be more so as the years roll on. Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, definitely not a trend.

Speaker 1:

Definitely not.

Speaker 2:

I would say that maybe the platforms trend right.

Speaker 1:

The social media is here and that's the way we communicate now I mean there's staple platforms and then there's trend platforms, and I think when a platform starts out, it starts out trendy and it either disappears or becomes a staple. Yeah Right, facebook and Instagram are staples of the internet now and for the foreseeable future. Can't say that that's going to be the case forever. Tiktok started out as a trendy platform. It's become a staple, at least for right now. Linkedin is a staple. Yeah, snapchat.

Speaker 2:

Snapchat for a while it's huge.

Speaker 1:

It was a staple. Now it's become a niche platform because really it's because of Instagram. A lot of people forget what happened there, but it was because of Instagram that Snapchat lost some of their some of the market share.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

But social media, not a trend, it is a reality. It is part of human being, human's communication these days and is a big part of the way human beings communicate with one another. Cool, what's the next one?

Speaker 2:

Number six is I don't have time for social media. Ooh, this one is a good one. This is a good one, yeah.

Speaker 1:

I don't have time to make sales. I don't have time for my business to be sustainable. I don't have time to take actions that will cause my future clients to be able to find me. That's what you're saying.

Speaker 2:

Basically yeah. When someone says they don't have time for something, that just tells me it's not a priority.

Speaker 1:

Now, a couple of that's correct. They're saying it's not a priority. A couple of caveats here. We're not so naive as to say there's only one way to do business, one way to be online, et cetera, et cetera. Lots of businesses out there hyper successful and have very limited or zero social media presence because they work on a referral network or they are doing really well with ads. Okay.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

But I would say most Coaches, you don't have the luxury of ignoring social media unless you can honestly say you're getting all the clients and all the revenue that you need and want from other avenues and you want to ignore social media? Sure, but I think for most people that's a strategic mistake.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I agree.

Speaker 1:

Cool, so that one, I don't have time for social media. By the way, you can nurture social media in five or 10 minutes a day.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, it doesn't have to be time consuming, right, and that's kind of what you talk a lot about in the simple social sanctuary.

Speaker 1:

One of my most successful masterclasses ever is where I taught people how to make a good quality reel for Instagram in 15 minutes.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

And you can do it over and over right, yeah.

Speaker 2:

And before you do it too, the less time it takes. Like sure, everything takes more time. When you're learning and you're just starting out or you're trying something new for the first time, it's going to feel kind of funky, right, but the more you make it a habit and the more you decide. I'm the type of person who posts on Instagram or Facebook or whatever every single day. It just becomes part of your routine.

Speaker 1:

That was part of habit. Yeah, and in this limiting belief, I don't have time for social media. It's very closely connected to the limiting belief that creating content takes a long time. It can, but it does not need to, and that's one of the big, big, big lessons in the simple social sanctuary is how can we have a high quality social media presence that is not time consuming? Because it very much is possible and in my opinion, that's the only way to be sustainable is to have a decent quality social media presence that does not take you time and energy. If you're pumping out content that you love but it's taking you forever, well, you can learn to pump out content that you love that does not take you forever. Yeah, yeah, exactly, totally doable. Yeah, that's a big myth in the social media world that this stuff is hard time consuming. You just got to learn how to do it. Once you know, yeah, learn how to use the platform and learn how to make the content and then your goal after that.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, and I feel like, out of all of the ones that we've talked about so far, this is probably the one that's like ding ding, ding, ding.

Speaker 1:

This one's huge.

Speaker 2:

For people yeah.

Speaker 1:

I don't have time for social media. Yeah, as Alana said, really, what that means is one of two things. Are both you're not making it a priority, or you just haven't taken the time to learn how to do social media quickly and efficiently yet.

Speaker 2:

Exactly, and it's almost like a cop out. You're just like I don't have time equals. I don't really know what I'm doing. I don't know what I'm supposed to be doing, so I'm just going to say I don't have time for it.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, right, yeah, boom, hate mail coming in, hot, uh-oh yeah. So that's your angry messages. Okay, number next, number seven oh, it's too late for me to start now. This is really closely related to number one. I'm too old. Yeah, late for me to start now. Or like the ship has sailed Everybody's already established on social media. Blah, blah, blah, nonsense. You have to start a social media account today and grow it and be successful. Yeah, there's no such thing. It's a very social media is very forgiving. There's no such thing as being too late to the game. You get, get in there and get started. You can do it. There's a hurdle to overcome because you got to learn the platform and you know, get over a little bit of inertia, but you can do it. There's no question about it.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, all right. Number eight is I need to be on every platform. This is another really good limiting belief, because you're really just putting up a roadblock right by saying, oh, I have to be on every platform. That's not true. Find a platform that you like and stick with that one. You know if you're going to, if you're going to try to create content and go on every platform, you're going to spread yourself to thin. I think you need to find the one that works for you, the one that you enjoy consuming content on, and start there.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, the key for for this one is and I teach this as well you need to have what's called a hub platform. So you need to pick one platform that's your favorite and usually it's the one that you just enjoy using the most, and that's where you focus your energy and your attention on creating content. Yeah, and you just repurpose the content from that platform out onto other platforms Easy peasy. There's no need to make unique content for every individual platform, unless you really want to, of course you can, but, yeah, you do it, and you don't need to be on every platform. I would recommend being on at least like two, but make one of them your hub and just repurpose the stuff to the other one. For me, instagram is my hub. That's my main platform. I'm also on Facebook that's my second, and then TikTok and YouTube, and that's pretty much it. You know, and I might might have a presence here or there around others, but those are my main ones.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, those are my main ones too. I'm not on TikTok, but my main one is Instagram and Facebook.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I do a lot of lip syncing videos on TikTok, a lot of those dancing, a lot of trend videos, except none of that. I don't do any of those things.

Speaker 2:

I was going to say what.

Speaker 1:

No no.

Speaker 2:

Okay.

Speaker 1:

No, I just repost my reels from Instagram onto TikTok. Number next, number nine paid advertising is the only way to get visibility. That's definitely not true. A third, fourth year in a row earning six figures without paid advertising, just from social media over here and lots of people like that. Paid ads can help, sure, but definitely not necessary.

Speaker 2:

No, not necessary. Yeah, number 10, negative comments or reviews will ruin my business. Oh, I like this one, yeah.

Speaker 1:

A lot of people are not just negative content or reviews, a lot of the big apprehension and the fear, the unconscious hesitation to be on social media is just you know you're putting yourself out there and there could be negative reviews, mean comments, criticism, all this stuff.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, yeah, I think this is a big one, especially for people who are maybe transitioning into coaching and haven't. Really. It's almost like a persona shift for them, because up until this point maybe they haven't been coaching and this is a new business for them, and so they're kind of like changing their online presence to be that of a coach, and so there's a lot of limiting beliefs or fears around. Well, what are people going to think? What are my former colleagues going to think? What are people like my friends from high school going to think if all of a sudden, I'm talking about coaching and putting this stuff out there? And to that I'm like who cares what they have to say? They're not your clients. Your old friends from high school and your former colleagues might be your clients, but you're not going out there to please them. And who cares what they think? Which is kind of a hard pill to swallow because you might really care, but then that just tells you that you have some work to do around what people think of you.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, this is definitely one that everybody needs to overcome be able to fear and do it anyway, don't worry. Unapologetically and immediately block anybody that's mean to you on social media, like you don't need to tolerate it, and you teach the platform who to show your stuff to. If, every time you have a negative or perceived negative interaction with somebody on social media, you just immediately block them, you're slowly but surely programming the platform to stop sending you those people. A lot of people don't realize this, and what you resist persists. Well, not only does the law of attraction make sure that happens, whether you believe in that or not, but social media algorithms really make sure that happens. You spend all kinds of time arguing with people about politics and comment sections. All those algorithms are going to send you what you engage with.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Lots of it, right, yeah? So food for thought. Food for thought. You know what? 99% of the people that I interact with on social media are an absolute delight, and it's because that's who I choose to engage with and that's what I get more of.

Speaker 2:

Yeah. You know, that's all it takes. Yeah, what's nice.

Speaker 1:

I tell you, number next is 11. My product service doesn't translate well to visuals. Oh, that's such a good limiting belief. This list is so good. Yeah, that's definitely not true. That's definitely not true, even if, like I mean, think about musicians. Like a musician produces a product. That is a very, very, very auditory experience. And you're saying they can't be on Instagram. There's always visions, right? The picture, the images of them on stage, the images of them in the recording studio, the music videos, right? Food, you know, is a gustatory product. Visuals, still highly important. There's no product or service that won't have something that can be documented and put on. Whatever social media platform you are into, for sure, yeah.

Speaker 2:

And when in doubt, just post a selfie.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, make yourself the star of the show, yeah.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, and I think this limiting belief. You need to shift your mindset to be like more of a producer. You know what I mean, like. So start when you're just wandering around, going for a walk in the morning or you know, out and about, like be open to finding visuals that you would maybe want to put in your social media. This is something that I did kind of like early on because I had this limiting belief, because I used to have an online fabric store. So for me the visual was easy it was fabric, like I would take photos of different bundles of fabric and the different patterns and everything. But then when I got into coaching, I was like, oh my God, what am I going to take pictures of? And I just shifted my mindset to be that of like a creative director, producer, where I would just be out, you know, wandering around, and I'd be like, oh, this would be a good visual for like a coaching thing, or I would maybe see like graffiti or something like that, or like a message someone had written on a wall, and I'd be like, oh, that's a good thing. So shift your mindset into that. And then all of a sudden, you're going to see visuals everywhere that you can use. You know, like even a mug, like this mug I have says self-love, like that could be a visual right.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

So many things, so just you got to like open your mind is what I'm saying. Cool, what's the next one?

Speaker 1:

Next one is Bang off these last few.

Speaker 2:

ROI from social media is too hard to measure, so return on investment from social media is too hard to measure. I mean, ok, sure, but you can look at your analytics. You can, you know, look at how many people are DMing you. You can look at, like, how many clients are you booking through your social media? There's all kinds of ways to figure out or measure.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

How well it's working for you.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, this limiting belief points directly to just a little bit of ignorance around a sales process. Because if you know what your sales process is like first people follow me on social media and then we talk in the DMs and then I have a sales call and then I offer them my service If you know really well what your sales process is, you can really easily track how many people have engaged with your content on social media, how many conversations in the DMs have you had, how many of those people have gone on to have a call with you and, of those calls, how many people have invested in your service. You know, tracking ROI on social media absolutely no different than tracking it in any other context, and if it feels like it's different, then you just got to kind of learn a little bit more about your particular sales process and what your measurables are, or your KPIs, if you will. Key performance indicators. Performance indicators, yeah.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, yeah. And the other thing, too, is when you do meet with someone new or someone reaches out to you, ask them how did you find out about me? That's the first thing I ask people whenever they message me, or something like that, because then that's also data Number 13,. I should only share polished, professional content. That's another good one Also, not true? Also ties into the whole. I don't have time. Yeah, because if you're a Mr or Mrs perfectionist, then, yeah, you're not going to have time and you're going to be spending so much time creating the most perfect post. And then it's on to the next. You have to really think about social media as something that you're slapping up there, and it's on to the next when you think about how much content gets published every single day and how much people are consuming it. When you think of it from that perspective, you don't even really want to spend a lot of time on it, because you're just like I'm going to put it up there and it's going to be gone in like five minutes into the ether of content land. You're not publishing a novel that's going to be sitting on a shelf for years to come. You're just putting something up there to be like hi, I'm here, I exist, that's it Right.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, this one is very, very pervasive and very wrong. Aiming for perfection in your social media content. You want to aim for decent quality, sure, but there's a point of diminishing returns when it comes to investing time in creating content. The difference between having a piece of content that's a nine out of 10 and a 10 out of 10 could be an hour or more of work. You really need to aim for that seven out of 10, eight out of 10, nine out of 10 level of quality for your content, because otherwise you're just most likely not sustainable in your efforts. There's very few mediums where perfection is required. Some of the most successful television commercials ever are the ones by the local mattress store, where it's just like just film their staff doing some cheesy skim. People love it because it's genuine. It's real. It gives you a peek into the personality of the people that are running the business. You really got to capitalize on that genuine, authentic, even a little bit rough around the edges vibe. You'll get better right. Pump out decent quality content. Before you know it, you won't be spending any more time on content, but the quality will be getting better and better.

Speaker 2:

Totally yeah. What do you always say?

Speaker 1:

You always say done is better than perfect. Yeah, right, done is better than waiting for perfection. That never comes right. Number 14.

Speaker 2:

You take that one.

Speaker 1:

Social media is just for business to consumer businesses. Business to business companies can also effectively utilize social media, blah, blah, blah. Basically, the limiting belief here is only certain types of businesses can be successful on social media Dash. Anybody who has a product or service or opinion or idea to offer can be successful in disseminating that information on social media. If you're a coach, you're technically a B2C, a business to consumer business, which is a fancy way of saying you're a business entity that offers a service to individuals. Basically, I think social media is ideal for that. But I think big businesses, medium businesses, everybody is welcome and everybody can thrive on social media.

Speaker 2:

Even if you're in a business to business, you're still communicating with a person in the other business. Do you know what I mean?

Speaker 1:

At the end of the day, if it's business to business, buying decisions are still made by human beings.

Speaker 2:

Exactly.

Speaker 1:

People making those buying decisions. Even if they're investing in a service from another business, they want that service to come via a person who they want to deal with. That's why salespeople are routinely the highest paid people around. There's a lot of salespeople who sell just normal everyday goods and make more money than the CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, because they're the human face of the product and they're basically the pipeline for profit. Anyway, a little off track there. Hopefully. I don't think this one's going to be a huge issue for people, but no, I don't think so either, because we're mostly speaking to coaches here. The counterpoint here is everybody has a place on social media. Yeah, Okay. Number last is 15. I can't compete with bigger brands on social media. This really is like with coaches. It's like, oh, what about these coaches that have a million followers? What about these coaches who have been around forever? It's really not a problem. It's really not a problem because there's so many people out there, so many clients, and a lot of them don't care how many followers you have. What they care about is making a connection with somebody who they trust. There's a lot of clients out there who specifically do not want to work with a coach who has a million followers, because they don't want to feel like just another number in the crowd. They want the dedicated attention of somebody who has a smaller audience. There's clients for everybody big audience, small audience. Don't worry about the competition. If you offer a valuable service and you're able to connect with people, do it.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I agree, you're really not competing with those bigger brands. You're not competing with the Tony Robbins or the Mel Robbins, or you know what I mean, all those bigger brands because they're in a different category than you, as like.

Speaker 1:

Once somebody has that celebrity coach status, the product that they're offering is distinctly different than the coaches with a smaller audience. It must be, it has to be. I've worked with both. I've worked with coaches who have very small audiences. I've worked with coaches with medium, medium-large audiences, and I've worked with coaches who are in the top 1% of coaches in the world. It's a very different experience with all of them. Not necessarily that any of them are better or worse than the others. It's just different products, different experiences. This is one that, if this is something that worries you, you can't compete with other bigger brands or coaches on social media. Put that old limiting belief away, because it's really not true.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, all right Done. So how's everyone feeling? I wish at this point we could see the listeners to be feeling good. You can't see them, no.

Speaker 1:

I have them all on my screen right now Live view through their smartphones, hidden camera in the car dashboard. Hundreds of faces here, like that scene in Batman, where you can hear everybody's voice in the city. I bet there's one person listening who's like really he can see us. No, I can't see you. I can't see you, I promise.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, no, I can't see anybody either, but I imagine that we've maybe ruffled some feathers.

Speaker 1:

Ruffled the feathers.

Speaker 2:

At this list.

Speaker 1:

There was one person who saw that story that I put on Instagram and sent me a message and was like yeah, tell him Ryan.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Something like that.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, if you need help with these limiting beliefs, you can message me anytime you want and we can do a hypnosis.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, message Atlanta Banks. She's good at that stuff.

Speaker 2:

I'm really good at it yeah.

Speaker 1:

Speaker 2:

Yeah, please Send me a message. I love reading poems.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, it's not fortune telling.

Speaker 2:

No, it's not.

Speaker 1:

It's poem. Reading it's different.

Speaker 2:

Poem reading. It's actually poem analysis.

Speaker 1:

Poem analysis.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, that's what I've been calling it.

Speaker 1:

Poem all.

Speaker 2:

I think when people hear poem reading they think like fortune telling, right, psychics, not bad, but it's not bad. It's really like an analysis of your character, your character traits, where you've come from, where you're going. Limiting beliefs actually come up in the poems. Yeah, lots to learn.

Speaker 1:

Poem, poems, poem in poems, poems, cool, I think that's it.

Speaker 2:

That's it. See you next time or no, speak to you next time.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, bye.
