One of the biggest keys to success that I see over and over again starts with embracing who you are as a leader and then using that moment to catapult yourself into visibility: getting before your ideal audience consistently.
The more times people even just see you, the more they feel they can trust you.
But, sometimes visibility can feel really hard. It can feel a little scary or like you're not ready and what is no one thinks you're awesome? It brings your self-doubts to the surface like woah. But, that's actually a good thing. Because it can make you aware of what's really holding you back from being visible and bringing your presence.
Get visible. Be known. Get trusted.
I've put together a bunch of ideas for ways you can get more visible today.
1. Guest blog.
2. Get interviewed on a podcast.
3. Be active in Facebook groups consistently.
4. Help others more than you ask.
5. Do a joint webinar with a fellow creative.
6. Pitch an article website such as Huffington or MindBodyGreen.
7. Set up three coffee dates to get to know people (in person or virtually) in your industry.
