If you know anything about me, I’m not into the woo-woo that I see many of the online folks are into.
To me, the law of attraction is not just sending out something and letting the universe do its work. (Here’s a hint about the REAL ‘secret’: the ‘intention’ you are setting is a goal, and to reach the goal you must take action, that is, set steps for achieving the goal.)
So I am surprised to be saying this. I feel I am ‘shifting,’ in business and in life. It’s not that I’m changing careers or changing my life, but I realized recently I haven’t been as transparent as I want to be.
Close friends and family know I have a pretty good BS detector. It’s why I was a good reporter.
But since I’ve been online, I’ve noticed I’ve been playing ‘nice’ because I didn’t want to upset colleagues or others who I admire.I didn’t want to be seen as a bitch.
From now on I’m going to call it as I see it. On this blog. On Twitter. On Facebook. And everywhere.
I’m not going to be mean… just honest and open with my opinions.You may agree or disagree with my point of view, but I welcome the debate.
It’s ironic. My brand is ‘Be Heard’. And for a while now, I wasn’t doing that. I was letting you hear what I thought you wanted to hear. I wasn’t sharing what should be heard: my truth.
I am sure the outcome of this shift will have a ripple effect on myself, my family and my business. Am I ready? I hope so.
P.S. This doesn’t mean all the content is going to change on this blog. I will still be including tons of ideas on public relations and publicity. I promise.
