Have you ever actually heard someone utter these words in conversation? I’m talking in real life, not some cheesy made for TV movie. And yet, if you’re putting yourself out there in any anxiety-inducing way (like starting or running a business), you’ve probably heard it echo in your subconscious at least once. Let’s be real. Totally honest. You’ve probably heard those deflating words many, many times over.
I’ll admit that I’ve heard it…more than once.
Because even though I I’ve spent the last 5 years repeatedly putting myself out there as an entrepreneur so I should be used to it, even though I’ve got the marketing / branding / communications expertise that allows me to be confident with what I’m sharing, and even though I’ve experienced sold out events, media coverage and glowing testimonials that should assure me that “who I am” is savvy, connected and a deliverer of awesome results, I still have to quiet the little voice that asks me who I am to be audacious, out there and living life on my terms.
I had to learn to thank that little voice.
Because if I chose to let it get the best of me I would still be trying to break the glass ceiling as a Marketing Executive working long hours to impact someone else’s bottom line and living a life that looked great on paper but was deeply frustrating to me. Instead I chose to answer the question, quiet the voice and gave myself permission to sparkle.
So just who do I think I am?
I’m a Self-Promotion Sage and an Image Alchemist. I’m a believer that the difference in whether you build a successful business or fail miserably lies in your commitment to being 100% visible. I’m writer and a style connoisseur. I’m an advocate for putting yourself first and living life on your terms. I’m a lover of connecting with and teaching others. I’m a Wife, Mama, Daughter, Sister and Friend. I’m a Leo, a country girl and a hippie at heart.
And what’s this space?
My intention is to share strategies, advice, insights and resources for heart-centred entrepreneurs that will inspire you to get your sparkle on as you navigate building your business and creating the life you most desire. I hope we’ll get to know each other so feel free to tweet me your thoughts, leave a comment along the way and…
