On Friday I kicked off the series The Top 6 Lessons I Learned In My First Year of Business., so let's keep it rolling all this week! They're what I would tell you, if we were chatting over tea or coffee, or on a coaching call, to focus on in order to grow, hit your goals, and enjoy the process.
Lesson #2: Get Visible.
Getting visible or "putting ourselves out there" is the thing that often scares us the most, the thing that strikes fear into my clients' hearts, and that was true for me, too.
I used my background and degrees in media communication, and examples from my mentors, and I did it before I felt ready.
I did it when my audience was a fraction of the size it is now, when I'd only worked with a few clients, when they didn't have the results they do now. I had no idea how to do livestreams. It felt scary, I felt nervous, I wondered what was going to happen. It felt crazy to put myself out there, because before starting Life With Passion I was extremely private, and I prided myself on the fact that I had NEVER advertised in my marketing business--all of my business was referral.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, nearly all of my Life With Passion clients came from getting visible--95% came to me as strangers.
I decided that my message was needed, and I wanted to reach as many women as possible with it.
I’m curious, how do you feel *right now* about visibility and how is it different from where you started?
