E107 - Looking Ahead

 James: Joanna yesterday we were talking a little bit about what you've been working on but today you're going to go into a little bit more depth on some of the projects you have coming up.

Joanna: One of the big things that I'm excited to be working on is helping more churches. Ultimately as many churches as I can with communications and figuring out how to do church communications in this digital age that we live in is a huge obviously a passion for me. You hear that probably every episode. And so learned so much over many many years of doing that in one or two a couple of churches and now wanting to help as many as I can. And that meant that I had to leave working day to day fulltime in that church. I still go to the church, James and I are at the same church but not on the staff there. And so in brief I'm hearing over and over everywhere I go and people that I'm already working with. There's a lot of churches out there that would love my help with communications and that's awesome it's an honor to be able to help but I'm trying to understand what is it that you want. What kind of help do you want me to offer you. I want to give the people what they want. So I'm obviously some of it looks like me going into a church physically getting to a church and helping to do consulting and work with a team or work with a pastor to help develop strategy and communications or whether that's social media and websites or that print stuff is rethinking maybe a whole strategy or development of something, a new project in the church. And that's great I love to do that but the reality is I can only be in one place at a time so one of the big things that I want to be building in the next number of months. So we won't see it out in public for a while but as Gary Vanderchuk always talks about show your work. Tell me what you're working on while you're working on it. I'm gonna be developing some content and courses online and so I want to know ultimately what do you need help with. How can I, literally help me help you. How can I help you? I want to serve as many churches as I can with really valuable meaningful content at an affordable price. And so I want to know what you want to know. You can reach out to me on Instagram @Joannalafleur or just even if you want to email me I'd just love to if anybody want to reach out and say these are the problems or these are the things we can't get over or these are the things I'd love to bring you in for if I had a chance and my boss would think I was so smart because I learned all this stuff from you instead of having to figure it out for three years by myself. All this stuff I'd love to know how I can help you and any feedback you give me means that the content is going to be better. And ultimately if the content better it's going to help more people meet Jesus and grow in Jesus.
