To be in the public eye all the time is not fun. There are expectations. And rules. And you have to behave a certain way and be a certain kind of person…
At least, that’s how I felt for the longest time and so I AVOIDED being seen as much as possible.
I’d tell myself, I like my privacy.
And the truth is, I really do.
I’m an introvert to the max.
I literally live in the desert and I only see people in person when I decide I want to.
But then three years ago, I made a decision to do *some* publicity, mostly with the idea of getting new coaching clients.
Well, I managed to get myself on one of the top podcasts in the world right away and the outcome wasn’t at all what I expected…
I found it was the catalyst for developing a new FRIENDSHIP with one of the top influencers in the space – someone I collaborated with on many different things since then.
But back to being uncomfortable about being public, and avoiding being seen –
it’s kind of crazy, especially in my line of work.
Former actor, now building a personal brand…
And yet, trying to hide.
I know you can hear me…
I know you might be in the same boat too.
You’re an entrepreneur with a meaningful message and you need to get it out there.
But if you are ambivalent about actually sharing your message at scale –
how on Earth is it ever going to happen?
You’ll be self sabotaging yourself at every turn.
(Ask me how I know..)
Here’s the thing.
You just have to GET OVER YOURSELF, Babes.
You have to MAKE A DECISION that you’re no longer hiding,
that what you have to say is important,
that people need to hear it –
otherwise, how are things going to change?
You were born to make a difference,
to build a business that has an IMPACT,
to become INFLUENTIAL –
and you can’t do it half assed.
*Kind of trying* is not good enough.
Think about it – if you don’t do it, who will?
Are you gonna let someone else share the essence of YOUR MESSAGE
and do a crappy job,
while you’re watching them,
secretly criticizing them and maybe even feel jealous at time?
Are you going to let YOUR TRIBE be guided by someone else,
let’s just be honest,
can’t do it half as good as you?
Are you a leader of a follower?
That’s what I thought… 🙂
It’s time to get over yourself babes.
It’s time to step up and, as Jay Abraham called me out on it a couple of years ago –
GET YOUR BUTT OUT THERE.
PS. If you know this is you, if you know you need more publicity and better, higher level connections, message me. I am taking on a couple of new clients -if you know it’s your time to shine, email me or message me on Facebook.
