“I recently worked with Lucy Bannister to help me get a little more savvy about how to use social media with my business. I run a service called Broken Yogi which provides treatment and yoga anatomy workshops for Broken Yogis, dancers and keen sports people.
I love my work but it’s hard running a business yourself, there is always so much to do. I want to spend my time focussed on my actual work which is why, for a long time I had been putting off learning social media. There were a few reasons that were stopping me from learning about it. Firstly I thought that it was going to be a long and difficult process getting to grips with it. Secondly I had been to a number of therapist conferences where there is always someone advertising their expertise on social media but it all seemed like a big financial commitment. Thirdly the people teaching these courses seemed a bit corporate and lacked the authenticity and ethical approach which I felt was so important.
When I met with Lucy there was much more of a personal and friendly approach, like hanging out with a good friend, it didn’t seem worky or corporate at all. Her friendly and enthusiastic manner make it a joy to work with her and she is clearly very knowledgable and experienced in what she does. I found that her experience as a yoga teacher made the process so much more applicable to what I do, it means that I am not getting lost in unnecessary tangents of social media. She has a great ability of keeping things focussed and specific to your needs which I greatly appreciate, the sign of a fantastic teacher.
As well as making the process feel more comfortable, working with Lucy gave me clarity of how I could use social media in an authentic and ethical way that fitted my beliefs. She is someone who not only has real professional experience in this field but also understands where we are coming from as yoga teachers and therapists.
I’m always looking to learn from great people and Lucy is definitely on my list of people to go to. Not only did Lucy cover everything I wanted to know but she also knew more about what I wanted than I did. She is exceptionally generous in her knowledge and obviously loves sharing her skills and experience to help people like me. I came away with much more than I thought I would! It really has been a huge help and like all masters she made it all seem so easy.
Social media doesn’t have to be hard, difficult, time consuming or scary, I only wish I’d met Lucy sooner. A lesson with Lucy is like plugging into the Matrix – Don’t waste anymore time, if you’re lucky enough to have found Lucy – use her. I promise you will not regret it and you will get more from it that you can imagine. We all want to hear what you have to say.”
