I’m Quitting My Facebook Page

Quitting FB

I decided that where I really see my business going is no longer personally running a Facebook page as well as being ‘me’ on Facebook on my profile and in groups.

I’m committed to always starting as I mean to go on, in my business and my life, so therefore I’m going to just pull the pin now rather than hold out.

Staying on my Facebook Page when knowing that I one day plan to quit would be pretty crazy, kind of like putting a healthy lifestyle off until Monday (and Monday, and Monday!) or indeed saving any life dream or goal for another day ‘when the time is right’.

What it really comes down to is I feel like I still have a bit of a split personality on Facebook.

For all that I talk about alignment and authenticity and I absolutely speak my truth, when I post on my page (as opposed to on my personal profile or in a group) there is still very much a sense that I am trying to write a good post. And then I look at the reach and the engagement and am either happy or upset.

That’s not really how I want my social media experience to be.

I want to have completely REAL conversations, if I’m going to spend time on social media.

As real as they can be online, but you know what I mean.

When I engage in comments on my page I feel like I’m in some ways ‘getting a job done’, rather than focusing purely on the conversation.

I like seeing my likes grow.

I think about how I’m coming across.

I spend time planning and scheduling posts.

I deliberately share some of my posts to try and get more reach for them.

I speak with my VA about which posts are best to re-post, and when is best to do so.

I try and remember to include personal posts, rather than just BEING personal.

I don’t spend a lot of time or thought on any of these things, and I do it all from a place of building value and connection, but it’s still too much time and still not QUITE true connection. Because any time I am caught up in worrying ‘how things will work’ I am moving AWAY from my personal place of alignment.

For me, I am in total alignment when I am operating without pre-thought or plan. Completely in flow and organic.

There’s also something that just feels a little bit tacky when I do share posts off my page. I only share the stuff I believe is relevant to wherever I’m sharing it, but still … it feels contrived. Maybe less than 5% contrived, but that’s up to 5% too much.

Sometimes I feel a tiny bit tacky on my Facebook Page. A bit “look at me”, like I’m deliberately trying to stand out.

Interestingly, the posts where I’m just saying whatever the hell I please (and think) I often get over 80% unpaid engagement.

So if you’re wondering if I’m quitting due to my page not working, quite the opposite.

My worst posts have maybe 30% natural engagement, and my VERY best ones are over 90%.

I can directly attribute income to engagement on, and connection through, my Facebook Page.

Quite a lot of it.

But it just doesn’t FEEL awesome.

I’m sick of logging on to Facebook and having to remember to show up –

On my business page
In the forums I run
In the forums I am a student within
In groups I try to network in (and there’s that word; try! I don’t want to TRY I just want to BE)
And when I remember, on my personal page

So I’m just gonna combine the whole darn lot of it and (this is crazy, I know!) just. be. me.

On a practical level what this means is that all personal and ‘in the moment’ posts will now only be posted on my personal profile. I expect that my friend list will fill up at some point, which is okay because if people want to they can follow me.

I will hand over the reigns of my business PAGE 100% to my team, and use it purely for updating links to my blogs as well as the occasional promotion. I will turn off the message ability there; I’m sick of having personal conversations in 2 places and happy for people to just PM me personally.

If it’s a tech or membership issue they can email support. I will have my team update the page a couple times a day with links to new and old blogs, interviews, any promo or testimonial posts and so on.

It will also be used for Facebook Ads. I’d like to eventually not run Facebook Ads at all.

Right now I can’t see a way to do that and still meet my business growth goals, but I’ll keep you posted if I make a decision around it! Essentially my FB Biz Page will be a NEWS page not a personal page. Still a great place to keep in the loop with what I’m doing and read my stuff but not a place where you’ll be connecting with me personally.

That will happen from now on ONLY on my personal profile.

I’ll now post my daily messages there, and there only. I won’t be sharing them to groups anymore except if I am VERY MUCH and TRULY called to do so. I’ll also post my mini thought blurts and any personal life stuff on my personal page.

I’ll probably change my personal FB cover to be more relevant to my business rather than an image of my wedding. And I’d say that overall there will be a little more insight into my ‘actual’ personal life than what there has been on my business page.

I don’t actually post a lot on my personal profile right now, Enzo is more the one to update our loved ones with our adventures. This is probably because I get tired of being so ‘on’ on Facebook though, so I’m hoping this change will allow me to ENJOY Facebook more.

The only possible ‘downside’ I can see of all of this is that my personal page is no longer just for my real life family and friends. But let’s be honest, it wasn’t anyway. I connect with them in (also crazy, I know!) real life.

What all of this is really about, of course, is just trying to be more me.

A little more each day.

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

P.S.

Rebel.
Upstart.
Fuck the system; screw the rules.
Won’t do what they told me.
Too much.
Unreasonable.
Ridiculous.
Unprofessional.
Crazy!

Should I go on? I could, but I think you get the picture.

You’re the one who is not only not like the other PEOPLE, you’re also not like the other entrepreneurs.

They, they actually think they’re different; non-conformists?! Don’t make me laugh. You and I both see it as it is:

They just wanna be told how to build a pretty little website and a pretty little social media page or three and a pretty little online product or course and get their pretty little headshots and do a pretty little pre-scripted dance all over the internet so that other equally pretty fucking bland and boring and same same-y peoples pay them money,

And they can all sit in a pretty little womans circle together patting each other linking elbows and stroking each others hair and singing Kumbaya as the sun sets over another day of sinking ever deeper into the unremarkableness that is their lives.

They are the ones who are not only willing to jump through hoops, they also want to build more hoops for other people; they want to perpetuate the hoop jumping life and their whole sales pitch is basically some version of “I will help you to have a better and shinier hoop, come see!”

lolol

BUT REALLY.

Meanwhile, you –

You’ve tried the hoop-jumping life, maybe more than what you care to admit. And, whilst you’ve nothing against sitting around with other ladeez and stroking each others hair, you and your girls; the real ones?

You don’t exactly fit in in the typical woman’s circle.

You don’t feel at home with the pretty-preneurs, not even on the internet let alone in real life.

You don’t actually GIVE a fuck about having all your shit perfect,

Polished,

And just so –

And the idea of having sales and marketing and content processes which you have to systematically pre-plan and then work through and endlessly join dots with?

Makes you want to hurl.

Sure –

You’ve bought in at times to do the idea that maybe you DO gotta do it as they say.

An automated webinar, perhaps?? Facebook ads which carefully and smartly tell the world who you are and how you can help? A sales plan proven and tested by the greats. The gradual sinking slow decline of your soul, your joy, your dreams, and even your pussy as everything within you that once knew she could HAVE IT ALL AND DO LIFE HER WAY SLOWLY DRIES,

WITHERS TO NOTHING,

AND DIES?

Sure –

Why not

And look.

It’s not that any of these things are bad or wrong. Maybe right now you’ve got to a certain point by playing by the rules … kind of. Following what ‘logic’ suggests you do. Breaking free here and there with wild little jaunts into over the top madness, noticing how THAT lights you up and also how people respond to it … but ultimately continuing to go back to trying to find the right fucking system to get you to where you want to go,

Because this thing of trying to just be you interspersed with trying to get it all right and make it work, well –

It’s God damn tiring –

But also, in the end, if we’re going to be black and white about it, it hasn’t got you to where you want to be!!

You KNOW you should be making SO much more money.

NOW.

With consistency, and yeah, while of course of COURSE you’re down for doing the work, you also feel like it SHOULD be a lot easier, more flow

And you know that you know that you know that you’ve still not let out the most unrestrained and fully expressed side of you!

– The you they can’t look away from
– The you they are MAGNETIZED by
– The you who automatically commands a huge freakin’ following, and sales to match it

You know who I’m talking about –

THE MILLIONAIRE REBEL YOU!

Starting January 18th!

>>> https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/rebelmillionaire/

The revolutionary fucking leader who tears SHREDS off of normal every damn day before the rest of the world has barely sipped its coffee!

Who is FULLY unleashed in what she says, how she shows up, how she does business, how she does life.

Who does not give a fuck about following rules! Or sales systems! Or strategies! Who can and will do what works for HER, and if it happens to resemble other ways people build an audience and make a fuckload of money online, cool, and if not, so what! That is not the point! The point is –

She knows what works for her.
She backs herself unapologetically.
She DOES it.

And she gets the damn results. The BIG results. The CONSISTENT results. The FUCK yes results, not just with money but with the VIBERY of it all.

Imagine …

Waking up every day and KNOWING you have crushed the day before it already begun because THAT IS WHO YOU ARE AND HOW YOU ROLL!

* Your shit sells (at any and all price point)
* Your creativity and inner ideas machine flows endlessly (you always know what to put out into the world and that when you speak people PAUSE EVERYTHING AND LISTEN, whether it is with free content and shenaniganery or with your paid stuff)
* You don’t even have to think about low end or high end or how to take people through a value ladder or some such bullshit, the value ladder is YOU CONTINUING TO BE YOU, and the more that you DO you the more people just take themselves through whatever it is you’re offering!
* It is easy, natural, fun, and OBVIOUS how to build your automated income, funnels, the ‘cash machine’ side of your business.
* In fact the whole damn thing feels fun and easy and like you’re just being you (the full on you, the too much you, the rebel you, the fuck all of ’em THIS IS WHAT I STAND FOR AND NOW I’M GONNA TELL YOU you!),
* and at the same time you have the DEEPLY grounded and certain knowledge that the way you’re doing it, hot mess and chaos vibes and all, is WORKING. PS – the reason you feel certain of this is because your bank balance and soulmate audience and their feedback reflects it, not bc your spirit guides told you it’s coming

All of this is ALREADY available to you.

It is who you are and what you were born for.

You did not come here for normal!

You are one of the truly crazy ones, who has something inside of her that will leave the world BREATHLESS –
and allow her to make millions and impact millions –

BUT NOT IF SHE CONTINUES TO DO BUSINESS AND LIFE BY TRYING TO SOMEHOW BE A NON-CONFORMIST WHO CONTINUALLY CAVES AND CONFORMS.

For this to work,

REALLY work, like next next NEXT level $ and life flow work,
you’re going to need to FULLY turn your back on the idea that your breakthrough is waiting on the other side of you adjusting, filtering, compromising, playing the game the way the other entrepreneurs are playing it, or worrying about what the fuck your social media looks like!

What you’re going to need to do is simple:

FLICK THE DAMN REBEL MILLIONAIRE SWITCH BABY.

Starting January 18th!

For those who were born to run the damn thing,

To turn the world on its head and dance on top of it,
