Today’s “Tuesday Topic” is short, sweet and very much to the point. Basically it’s a micro-rant about those who love to tell us ‘how-to’ or ‘what-to’; but never tell us ‘who’!
I don’t always want a list of what to do although the guru’s tell us that’s the best way to build an audience. Not this audience mind you!
If you want me to consider that you a knowledgeable well-versed person whose “do this list” is what I should grasp and take to heart; then at some point tell me your “who”. Tell me WHO YOU ARE! Tell me your personal story!
No, no you don’t have to report every single gory detail; but at least let me know enough about you to draw me closer. Closer not only for business sake; but because I want to connect with you woman-to-woman!
PAPA God works in strange and mysterious ways. Today is one of those days when it would be hard to miss the “coincidence” of this Tuesday Topic and the alignment it has with Susan Sparks, ASAP Writing Services BLOG POST.
Susan’s message is about the relevant importance of story-telling! Mainly, our personal story. And she does an excellent job of telling a story from her growing up years; as well as relevant stories from 2 others.
Social media has given us the opportunity to meet and connect with women (and men) we would never met otherwise. We may never meet them face to face; but we’ll connect heart to heart because of one very important reason – something we share about ourselves resonates and a spiritual connection is made.
While to-do lists are important; more important is letting down one’s guard to let others in. It’s revealing ourselves which let’s others in and that’s when friendships form. Friendships that may even lead to business at some point in the journey!
There’s a famous saying often attributed to leadership expert, John Maxwell: People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.
Let me encourage 2 things today:
1. Read Susan’s post and leave her a comment to let her know you enjoyed what she wrote, and
2. Be brave enough to let go of the mask. Let others in, making great connections that show how much you care. . .
