Having been in the content marketing and publishing industry for over 20 years, I know that I am one of the best in helping my clients build community, engagement, credibility, visibility and reach with their content strategies.
That said, when you turn the tables on yourself – it’s a whole other ballgame!!!
I have known that in order to help more people I need to step up my game, step into a bigger spotlight.
I have become my own client.
And…I’ve definitely struggled in releasing some marketing materials in the last six months.
For example, I did this video shoot almost FOUR MONTHS ago, my website was supposed to launch almost half a year ago (my visibility issues here…) and my branding photo shoot has been ready for almost two months.
And yet…this. Fear.
I am afraid of being judged.
I am afraid of not being enough.
I am afraid of not being fit enough or strong enough.
I am afraid of looking silly.
I am afraid that I don’t look right.
Oh, and the biggest fear of them all.
The fear of success.
This hesitation. This fear.
Even writing this makes me a little dizzy.
On one side, I like to be introverted. Snuggle up, read a book, be quiet. On the other, I crave connection and community.
My desire to inspire overpowers these fears most of the time – but it is work.
This preview of a blooper reel my team put together is the proof.
I can’t begin to tell you the roller coaster ride I’ve been on to stepping up my own visibility and coming out from behind the scenes with my clients to so that I can reach more people in 2019 and help more people make a bigger impact by amplifying their visibility, credibility, reach, engagement and communities.
In the new few weeks you may see me release a ton of new branded videos, posts, stories, etc. but I want you all to know that it was work and it wasn’t all perfect.
About 10 hours of shooting to get about 60-minutes of video.
I doubted myself.
I lost my words.
I made up words.
I forgot what I was going to say.
I had a mini panic attack.
I felt like I was a deer in the headlights.
I felt unsure.
