We know we aren't supposed to, but how many of us secretly covet our business neighbor's IG or FB accts and are green with envy? I must admit, I'm guilty! It seems like no matter how hard I try, I feel like I will never ever catch up! And I look at some of those IG acct pictures and I don't know what makes that photo worth a gazillio likes! I mean, it's not that coo!!!!

So what is a business girl or guy to do? My mother used to say, "Clean up your own backyard before you start trying to clean up someone else's." Of course the meaning of this quote is to mind your own business. And the deeper meaning of that is when you are minding your business, you aren't focusing on someone else. And..... the more you focus on your business and concentrate your efforts on building your business rather than wasting time monitoring what your nemisis is doing, the more likely you will succeed and be the object of others envy. and really, that's all you can do.
