Check your privacy settings on all of your social media channels
THINK before you post. Is it True? Is it Helpful? Is it Inspiring? Is it Necessary? Is it Kind?
Be aware of what people post about you. Google yourself.
Have someone you trust look at your social media so they can let you know what your accounts look like from the outside.
