Hands UP if…
  • you started your business to help people.
  • you’re not sure what to do to start standing out in your industry?
  • you want to make the world a better place.
  • you want to make more money?

These are the questions, I’ve been asking myself too. I’ve been daydreaming and planning how to change my business so that I can help more women be who they are and build businesses, but for that to happen I have to stand out. If you want to help more people, people need to know about you.

And, I have to admit… I’ve been scared to stand out.

Today I want to show you some bloopers from behind the scenes of recording my all new Start Standing Out Series. I’m awkward, I’m cheesy, but it’s also who I am and I’ve learned to embrace it. It’s because of this that it’s been one of my favorite things to work on.

It’s easy to make excuses to not post to social media or tell people about the business you are creating. To second guess or compare yourself to others. It’s simple to stay out of the spotlight. (Or is it just me?)

After all, standing out means being noticed, judged, or worse, embarrassed.

To TRULY stand out you have to…

  • Use your own voice which may mean saying exactly what you are thinking.
  • Know exactly who you are talking to and not worry about anyone else.
  • Trust that whoever is reading that message, needed to hear/read it. (hands up, anyone?)
  • Ask yourself, what you are really afraid of? Make a list, it helps.

But what it all comes down to is embracing the #1 thing that’s most unique about you… your personality. Because that is the cornerstone of your brand. It’s the most memorable thing about you.

If you’re goofy, be goofy.

If you’re serious, be serious.

If you’re cheesy, be cheesy.

If you’re sexy, be sexy.

If you’re sassy, be sassy.

If you’re a sailor, be a sailor.

Before the entertainment, take a moment in the comments to write down 3 words you want people to use when they describe your personality. I believe these three words are the foundation of your success as an entrepreneur. When you start showing up as your unique blend of those three words it creates a ripple effect. You stop blending in, you start talking to your ideal clients, and as a bonus you tend to be more profitable.

And now, for the video you came here for – come laugh with me…

Weekly Dare: do ONE thing that makes you show up as all 3 of those words in your business.

Because remember, it’s daring to be different.
