God has designed every organism so wonderfully and uniquely.

Like, did you know that there are over 10,000 species of butterflies?
10,000 of ONE kind of insect.

And in His divine craftsmanship, God made each creature with specialized mechanisms for procreation and survival, too.

For example, when a turtle feels threatened, he contracts inside of his armor shell and protects his extremities, because Lord only knows he’s not running away from his predator.

And then you have the pufferfish.

When he feels threatened, he expands his body which makes him inedible to his predators. And some species even have spiky spines with dangerous poisons that could kill a human. YIKES!

I use these two examples because at the Fear Less conference a few weeks ago, we dove head first into the topic of fear and how to manage this abstract force that has the potential to wreak havoc on our lives–just look at our current situation; fear is rampant.

We know that fear is inevitable, but choosing to live controlled by our fears is a choice. When faced with fear, we get to choose our response. We can either turtle or pufferfish. (Yes, I just used my poetic license to use these nouns as verbs.) 

We can either shrink back and get freaked out by uncertainty and play small and worry about tomorrow. Or we can inflate, expanding our minds and utilizing our resources and live in hopeful expectation for tomorrow and even next year!

I pray that you will choose the latter.

So you may know that I’e pivoted to the world of online business; I help entrepreneurs build their business through messaging, marketing, and media.  But guess what? Whether you own a business or not, you are your own personal brand, so much of what I offer applies to everyone

Whether you are an online entrepreneur or not, I invite you to learn from the free workshops I’m leading to help you become a savvy consumer of content, especially related to all-things-social media. And if you’re on any social media platform, the information is relevant and helpful. 

Every week, I offer Social Media Monday at 9AM EST. 

In this quick 15 minute FREE workshop, we dive in to a number of topics; tomorrow’s session is entitled Storyteller: Using Images to Tell Your Story. I’d love to have you join us on Shine with Frannie’s Facebook Live page.

And if you don’t think this is for you, can I ask a favor? Can you share it with someone who wants to learn to be a savvy consumer of content, since that is the one thing that hasn’t shut down during this entire Corona Crisis: media!

Hope to see you Mondays at 9AM EST.
