In Journey

Owning and telling your story takes guts.

It takes a big swig of bravery.
It opens you up for judgement.
It leaves you feeling exposed.

But the very thing that can leave you feeling judged and exposed is also the very thing that opens you up for creating some of the most amazing connections.

It is self-sacrificial and humbling.
It enables you to empower and inspire others to keep going.

Tell your story, even when it hurts.
Even when the tears flow and your bravery wavers.
When the words stutter and your heart breaks.

    Not sure where you’re going with this. How is this relevant to branding? I ask this because I read stories on blogs (eg. in the “About Me” section etc) and business websites that are long winded and not related at all to what they’re writing about or selling. I think there’s such thing as giving too much information and that some information is best left unpublished. How do you regulate that?

      Hi Teens, thanks for your comment! I completely understand that you aren’t a fan of long-winded About pages – I’m not either. #aintnobodygottimeforthat

      About sections should include your story told in such a way that it IS relevant. Remember, branding is all about managing your customer/client/reader perception + experience – and your About page is just another opportunity to make your customer feel something. Particularly so they feel as if they know you and want to purchase from you. I hope that’s helpful! 🙂

    I recently wrote about my experience with postnatal depression and although it was scary as hell to press publish, I am so glad I did. I got so much amazing feedback and support AND people sharing their own stories with me, which makes it so worthwhile. So I wholeheartedly agree, tell your story people!
