You probably don't remember but when we announced the makeover of Get Smart Social, we mentioned that we will include "Quote of the Month" in each email. Three months later we realised that we've totally forgotten about it 😅. Why? Because a resolution without an action plan is just a dream.
This brings us to the March quote which fits the occasion very well and a reminder that it's never too late to start working on those resolutions 🙈
"A failed resolution is not the fault of resolutions."- Oscar Auliq-Ice
Let's now head over to our community expert's resources that cover topics on brand identity, LinkedIn leads, sales proposals, content and more.
From Krishna Solanki
As a brand identity designer (as well as a SquareSpace website designer), she helps business owners bring their vision and goals to life all whilst ensuring that the designs appeal to their target audience.
What’s super important is that once the brand identity is created, and you have your “brand toolkit” in hand, you need to USE it! And that's what she's covering in her latest article…
From Sarah Clay

From May King Tsang
Does FOMO work for your business? Just ask Clubhouse!
If you're curious to know how Clubhouse has created a tone of FOMO (fear of missing out) for their newly launching app and how you can do the same for your new or even established business, read this blog post from the original FOMO Creator, May King!
From Dan Holloway
If you're looking to get clarity and kickstart your momentum, then Dan's new Facebook Group and his 5-day challenge is for you! It's not your usual challenge. Dan's not going to cover basics like Ideal Customer Avatars and Bio Headlines. Instead, he wants to really help business owners to spark off deep, actual transformation...
He created the challenge to be 'challenging'. So if you're tired of feeling stuck. And you're up for digging deep. Then join the group and jump into the challenge!
From Andrew and Pete

We hope that you found what you need in these resources! And don't shy away from getting in touch with our community experts to thank them for their time and generosity.
Last but not least, the last two resources are picked by our team. Are you preparing to launch a business? or are you suffering social atrophy? then these are for you 👇
The Launch Challenge is coming to Shifties in April.
This free 10-day challenge is going to be a lot of fun. Alex Hughes will be co-hosting the challenge with Dan Jones, the Bearded Digital Handyman and with the support of Shift Momentum. Given the environment we are all operating in, it is important we share as much support for those in the community needing to re-launch into the market.
How To Reverse Social Atrophy?
If you're living in the UK, chances are you will go back to work or return to socialising soon as the UK lockdown restrictions start easing. Does the thought of heightened levels of social stimulation after lockdown fill you with apprehension? You could be suffering from social atrophy. We read this blog from The Helpful Clinic and thought it's worth sharing and learn from.
