I want to introduce you to my friend and student Emily McGuire. Emily is a crazy talented email marketing strategist and copywriter.
She recently posted this on LinkedIn and I asked if I could share her message with you:
“The things that make you different are the things that make you dazzle.
You know what’s really weird? I used to be so terrified of showing myself online.
I thought I had to be a cookie-cutter version of myself on LinkedIn.
That LinkedIn means being uber “professional.” (Yes, those quotes are intentional).
When I think “professional,” I think of anyone BUT me, and therefore, this is not a place I belong.
It wasn’t until I spoke with Leah Neaderthal about this that she opened my eyes to what was blinding me.
People like me are everywhere, and all I have to do is show up.
I just have to show up as me, and see what happens.
And you know what? It works!
The open me. The vulnerable me. The one that laughs at my own terrible jokes.
That’s how I show up.
And the fascinating part is that people tell me they like it. (WHAT!?!?)
Be you. Own it, and your difference will make you dazzle (instead of getting lost by attempting to blend in with a bunch of Brads).”
So, what makes YOU different? I’d love if you send a message and share with me!
