“If you think it’s all unicorns and rainbows round here you’ve got another thing coming”…
I want to let you in on a secret today. Promise you’ll keep it to yourself, yeah? OK.
You see all those pretty photos I post on here?
For every one photo you see, I have 9 similar on my phone. You know, where my face looked too fat, the light wasn’t right or made me look older, some where I’m pulling a funny face…
And you know those happy family videos you watch on my page? For each one of those idealic scenes I have 9 others too. Scenes where the kids were trying to kill each other, where I’m screaming from the top of my voice ‘stoooop it!!!!!!’, where everyone is tired or hungry or just had enough.
So if you think it’s all unicorns and rainbows round here you’ve got another thing coming.
I ain’t perfect and I’ll never be.
Why am I sharing this with you today? Because it’s important that you know that…
REAL life happens. ALL the time. And it is perfectly fine when things aren’t perfect.
And to those of you in business (or not) – it’s even fine to admit it and share it on your social media. It’s what makes you human, relatable, and believe it or not – even trust-worthy.
I know you started your business because you desired to make an impact in other people’s lives. I know you have something of value to share with the world. But how are your potential clients meant to find you, if you are the world’s best kept secret?
So today – go ahead and post something, or go a step further and post something… vulnerable. Something imperfect. I’ll be right here to virtually hold your hand and remind you it’s OK.
Let me know what reaction you got and how it made you feel.
