Just don’t be so you!A quote from my Mom just before a job interview. Is it important to say I already worked for the company?
I feel like this course is the mother I never had… Thanks, new Mom!
Thanks for teaching me to always listen to others.
Thanks for encouraging me to be authentic.
Thanks for valuing my story.
Sometimes all we need is someone to listen and encourage our voice to be authentic and have the confidence to tell our story.
Listening to your audience works the same way. As you listen, you learn what is important to them and what their pain points are. This is the best way to understand if your message will connect or miss the mark.
Once you listen to what is important to your audience and what they need, the best way to relate to your audience is to be authentically you. If your message is not received, this may not be your audience. Listen again but remember you can’t be everything to everyone.
Putting ourselves out there might be the hardest part, however, this course has taught me that if I am prepared, then I can write. Finding your audience and fostering your authentic message will give you the confidence to tell your story. It is time to tell our stories!
