I was sitting with a personal story, guarding it too close to my chest for over 8 years. Sure, I had shared it on occassion, in a few private spaces and with a handful of friends, but it often left me feeling vacant because I knew I wasn't making an actual impact with it.
After side-stepping it year after year and avoiding the inner-knowing that it needed to be told, I accepted a nomination, just a few short months ago to share my story.
And so, to an audience of 400+ in San Francisco, CA, I spoke my truth — with my imperfections and flaws. I wasn't prepared for the reverbrations from that experience, from the audience members who approached me afterwards, to the additional speaking gig and multiple clients I garnered because of it.
But do you want to hear the deeper truth? There was an internal shift within my own self, a sort of lightness of being and a loosening of the grip that I hadn't felt in years since starting this entrepreneurial journey.
My point in sharing this with you: Well, there are so many good things that can happen from taking up space in this way. it will give you an inner freedom, dislodge you from playing a subsidiary or restrictive role online. And speaking up & speaking out in a public way, positions womxn as experts in your field & makes you influential in the work that you do. Having a mic and a podium, shifts people's viewpoint of you. It's just how it goes — and it works!
