S2E6 Can Being Too Transparent Ruin Your Reputation?

Episode 6 kicked off asking, “Do you overshare your personal life to your professional audience?” with my biz friend Shayla Smart founder of Kingdom Woman Lifestyle.

Sharing my personal story of depression has helped others deal with their own struggle.

s2e6 question

Don’t bleed all over people with your hurt. Facebook is not the place to bleed.

Don’t keep secrets that will harm you or others to yourself. That’s the time you should share with someone else.

What happens when you compromise your truth when making decisions in your business?

Moving too fast in business. From great idea to miserable on a bad decision.

Business lessons will be repeated until you understand the consequences.

Shayla’s timeline of your entrepreneur journey

Does a higher power play a role in your business?

Know when to share and to keep silent on movements in your business.

Does filling every spot in your program make you more successful than actually having successful clients?

No matter how many people signed up for your program, over deliver to them.

Don’t take or granted what didn’t work out.

Share from a healing perspective not a hurt one.

Final toast- Don’t repeat the same pattern. Find the lesson and learn from it.

Be authentic. Tell your truth. Be yourself for you. Be #1 to you.
