Heres an idea, do all your social media in house.

1. YOU effing figure out how much money and time you want to spend on it.
2. YOU figure out a way to make money on it, if thats even possible
3. You own any screw ups
4. (Oh, youll pay less for it and get it done quicker)
5. Some agency doesnt have to pretend that your company's Memorial Day tweet is a possible game changer.

As someone with ADHD, the impulsive side of me speaks up in meetings without fully processing the information. Then when corrected, I beat myself up for the rest of the day.

What has ended up happening over time is that I have started to come off as an introvert (because of the fear of being wrong) and also with low confidence. This is not a good trait in client facing roles where we are constantly making recommendations and clients look up to us.

Anyone else deal with this?
