Something that’s been gnawing at me like a relentless itch these days: the overwhelming noise on social media among online gurus. You know what I’m talking about—the endless race to six figures, the ads that promise you the moon, and the general hustle culture that’s become the norm.

I completely understand the strong desire to grow a following as an online business. I highly resonate with the need for financial abundance and freedom. After all, if no one knows you, how else are you going to reach your financial goals?

What I don’t resonate with is the overkill and the generalization that if you don’t have a million followers, you can’t be and won’t be successful. That is complete nonsense.

Social Media for Introverts

THE GREATsocial media CIRCUS

Let’s set the stage. Social media has become a circus of sorts, especially in the entrepreneurial world. Everywhere you look, someone is flaunting their six-figure income, their luxury vacations, or their “hustle-hard” lifestyle. And while there’s nothing wrong with celebrating success, it’s starting to feel like a never-ending competition.

As you know, Millennial Bella is my design and branding studio, and it was a part of this circus for a while. But as I’ve transitioned into focusing more on community and my personal brand, I’ve started to question the narrative that’s being pushed so hard on social platforms.

Remember when I talked about taking a step back from social media to focus on what truly matters? Well, part of that decision was fueled by the exhaustion of constantly being bombarded by the same old “get rich quick” schemes and six-figure success stories.


Let’s get real for a second. The journey to six figures—or any financial milestone for that matter—isn’t a sprint; it’s a marathon. And these ads that promise instant success? They’re often selling a mirage. Sure, some people hit the jackpot quickly, but for most of us, it’s a grind. And that’s okay!

As I’ve shifted my focus to personal branding and content creation, I’ve realized that success isn’t just measured in dollar signs. It’s measured in the genuine connections you make, the lives you impact, and the community you build. Guess what? None of that requires you to be a six-figure earner.

Building and joining a community has been a breath of fresh air. It’s a space where the focus isn’t on who’s making the most money or who’s got the most followers. It’s about true connections, shared experiences, and mutual growth. Let me tell you, it’s been a game-changer.


So, how do you tune out the noise? For me, it’s been a mix of limiting my social media time, curating my feed, and focusing on my own path. It’s not about ignoring everyone else; it’s about listening to what resonates with you and filtering out what doesn’t.

Look, if your goal is to hit six figures, that’s awesome! Me too! But let this be a reminder to not get so caught up in the race that you forget why you started in the first place. Success is a journey, not a destination, and it’s different for everyone.

How does yours look like?


Before I wrap this up, I want to extend an invite to my free community. If you’re tired of the social media noise and you’re looking for a space that’s all about real talk and genuine connections, then this is the place for you.


At the end of the day, the only voice that truly matters is your own. So, tune out the noise, focus on your journey, and don’t be afraid to take the path less traveled. It might just lead you to a destination that’s more fulfilling than any six-figure paycheck. But of course, I am never against earning enough to sustain my Ideal Income Lifestyle™️.
