I can't be bothered being anyone other than me.
Talk about hard work.
But I still catch myself changing my tone, or coming over all 'marketing' sometimes. And I think: "WHOA! What is that all about? Why am I being someone else when I do my marketing, or start talking about my Thing. Waaaaay too much like hard work keeping that up!"
So I can't be bothered.
I am just going to be me
And yes, sometimes I get cake crumbs everywhere, and sometimes I laugh WAY too loudly, and sometimes I laugh at my own jokes (cos I am pretty funny I reckon!) and sometimes I am just tired so I don't do anything much at all.
But sometimes I forget. I start to be all 'should be like this' and write in a 'proper' way that's not me and go all 'posh' in my videos. And I think too much about what it will 'look like' and how it will be perceived when at the end of the day if it's me it's me and that's just the way it is.
Now of course I am not saying I'll turn up to events in my slippers (although I have them on right now) and that I won't make an effort and be professional (of course I will) but I won't be an image of someone I'm not. I won't do stuff the way I should just because it might be expected (hey, I talk about 'Things' for goodness sake!). And yes this all sounds very simple and it is. But it's not easy to remember to be.
The more me I am the more business I get
So where are you not being you? In your website copy? In your videos? When you're on stage? When you're networking? What about when you write an ad? Or have a sales call? When are you coming over all 'should be'?
Stop it! :)
Which is of course the point of Being a Business Celebrity - it's about YOUR Thing and getting Famous for what YOU do that's different. Not 'A' Thing and not 'A way of getting Famous'. It's yours. YOU. JUST AS YOU ARE!
Yeah that's right. I love you just the way you are (now go be you in a BIG WAY!).
