Good Morning Master Moms!
I have been thinking about you. I am behind the scenes working on me and thinking of ways to be an asset to all you moms out there striving to master your missions.
This morning at about 6:45 am, I had coffee with Heather Chauvin of momisincontrol.com. I love her! She has excellent resources for us moms. She also provided me with some much-needed feedback regarding this Master Mom Mission.
1. Speak my truth
2. Stop thinking and start doing
3. She reminded me that there is an audience out there who desires to hear from me.
Let me tell you about number three, it is so important because I often wonder to myself why would anyone want to hear from my hot mess, monster mom, barely managing to make it behind?
I realize now, that type of thought can cause us to stop when we need to go! Go out into the world to be a contribution today for tomorrow's innovations. Mastering Our Mission begins within ourselves.
I know as mothers it feels like taking time for ourselves is impossible. However, try. Try to find maybe 30 minutes in your day to be alone to listen to yourself. You might hear the lies you tell yourself louder than your truth. But if you never slow down to start to listen you won't hear anything. After a while, you will learn to distinguish between your truth and your lies. Or maybe someone will come along and help you as Heather did for me today.
Here's something to think about, if we won't take the time to listen to ourselves, why should we expect anyone else to listen to us?
Your Sister in Motherhood,
1. Compare Apps
Visit www.getapp.com to compare applications. In the search bar type @mention. The result for apps that offer @mention monitoring will appear. Then you can narrow down your search by the following:
2. Compare the Apps side by side
I compared BRAND24, MENTION, MENTIONLYTICS, AND MEDIATOOLKIT because I needed apps compatible with iOS for my MacBook Pro, iPad, iPod, and iPhone. Side-note: I may or may not have an Apple addition.
3. Choose your App
Remember that great benefit I mentioned above about posting directly to your social media from the application? Well, that is what won me over when it was time to make my decision. MENTION was the only application that integrated FACEBOOK, TWITTER, AND INSTAGRAM. Additionally, Mention tracks whatever brand, name, phrase, or word you desire across the internet including social media.
For M.O.M this could be a useful tool for tracking your family and business' online reputation. You will receive real-time alerts and the benefit of instant engagement with social media from within the app. Another significant advantage is that you do not have pay unless you grow to love MENTION. It offers a FREE Trial which gives you 10 alert options, 50,000 mentions, and access for up to 100 users.
4. Download the App on your iOS, Android or Computer
Adding the alerts are easy to navigate and self-explanatory. It took me about 5 minutes to add four alerts. For each of the alerts, you can add keywords and phrases to include, keywords and phrases to exclude, a website, a Facebook page, and a Twitter page. You can decide how often you desire your alerts and how you would like to receive the alerts. I chose to send the notification to my iPhone. Also if you have Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts you can set them up so that you can reply to posts directly from within the app. That is a massive time saver!
I believe this is a 4-star product whether you’re an individual tracking your name's mentions or a business monitoring your brand's mentions! I would have given this app 5 stars if it integrated more social media platforms like LinkedIn and Youtube. Visit www.mention.com to learn more.
5. Enjoy getting alerts on your name's use via the Mention app!
WHO AM I?
I am a mom who has a mission to raise children who are equipped to master their purposes in life. I awake every day and choose to parent them on purpose and with intent.
WHAT IF YOU FAIL?
My efforts as a mother are to be determined. I believe I can accomplish my mission. Therefore, I will work toward succeeding not failure.
I believe being a mother is my highest purpose in life. No, it is not my only purpose. But it is one of my top priorities. Therefore, with all that is within me, I desire to MASTER being a Mother. Perhaps, when my children become parents, they will utilize the lessons I have taught them through my efforts.
WHEN OBSTACLES COME...
I will strive to resolve the things with my power and leave all else to my creator. For I know, I was created and chosen for this mission. Therefore, He equipped me with the ability and will to do the job.
Whether educated, employed, married, prosperous, healthy, dead or alive, I will always be a MOM. Therefore, this Master Mom Mission is worth every headache, belly roll, tear, lost sleep and missed meal.
