Oftentimes, I get asked about my transparency... Like, openly talking about losing a job the same week I found out I was pregnant, openly talking about postpartum depression, or struggles in business, or ups and downs as a mom-wife-entrepreneur, or homesickness...
I believe - I know - that there is always a woman out there who feels alone. Unheard. Misunderstood. Underestimated. Underappreciated. Overwhelmed. Lost.
And I want her to know what she is not alone. She is heard. She is understood.
And that the journey she's on, it's been traveled before.
That the fears she's facing, anger she's feeling, sadness she's hiding, bravery she's faking, it's all been done before.
And I know that if I expect my clients to be honest with me (because that is the only way to create success that I help them create), then I have to walk the talk, I have to be the trailblazer first.
Only then come the next question, "but it's this the latest marketing trend, to be authentic?"
Trends come and go. Human experience, human connection stays forever. And that is not a marketing gimmick; it's living in integrity, standing up for what's right, living a purpose, leaving a legacy.
