Danielle x social media expert Kenzie Kittle in Ep. 98 of Don’t Cut Your Own Bangs
- Social media influencer, producer, and expert Kenzie Kittle and I take a deep dive into the underbelly of social media – Villains, Bullies & Trolls. What is it like to be trolled at scale? You’re doing the right things, your platform is growing, AND so is your exposure to virtual bullies.
- Is it possible to get “thick skin,” “shrug it off,” or “NOT worry about it”? Kenzie and I explore this question and how she protects herself, as well as her clients.
- We also talk about the beauty and connection that can be found through social media, how it’s not ALL bad, and how to approach naysayers with compassionate curiosity.
- You don’t have to be a social media influencer or expert to experience criticism. We also explore how the boundaries we’ve set online have helped us in everyday life.
