“Tell your story. Shout it. Write it. Whisper it if you have to, but tell it. Some won’t understand it. Some will outright reject it, but many will thank you for it. And then the most magical thing will happen. One by one, voices will start whispering, ‘Me, too’! And your tribe will gather and you will never feel alone again”. L.R. Knost
My story today, on Monday June 1st is that I did the first school run in 10 weeks as mini me decided to return to school.
Also, I felt judged today, but decided not to let it in! And instead, I’m sharing my thoughts and seeking yours.
I don’t profess to be social media savvy; in fact, in truth, I didn’t particularly have a huge digital footprint because I had led quite a private life online till before lockdown.
Networking for me, was about meeting and getting to know people on a deep human level, and deciding who was to be a part of “my tribe”. That’s how I found my clients, my favourite networkers and even friends.
With lockdown, I had to think outside the box and started talking about my passion and purpose, storytelling and connecting on video. It was an experiment, but one I’m happy I conducted. Because as mini me says, “practice makes permanent, not perfect; because there’s no such thing as perfect!”
And I found my online tribe. I’m not polished, but I speak from the heart.
I’m curious, have you found your tribe? Do you put more value on how professional a vlog is or on the content it delivers?
Let me know your thoughts…
Love and strong coffee
