Do you ever stop yourself from starting a new project because when you think about people you admire you say, “I don’t think I could ever be as good as they are…”
Or maybe you’re a stickler for perfection and want things to turn out **just right** otherwise, what’s the point?
Whether it’s starting a new career, writing a book or expressing your art, the fear of initially sucking at something holds many of us back from expressing our highest potential. Fear keeps us silent and stuck.
But what if the key to unleashing our courage and using our talents to change the world means giving ourselves permission to start small and sucky?
Do you ever feel torn between different parts of your personality — especially when it comes to how you represent yourself in the world?
After all, we humans have multiple personalities, so to speak. At different times we can be humorous, inspirational, sarcastic, kind, angry, authoritative, blunt, poetic, direct, friendly and a million other things too.
Whether you write (a blog, book, newsletter, social media updates, articles, etc.) or speak publicly on behalf of your company, it’s important to consciously choose the tone and language you use to communicate your message.
But with all these different parts of your identity, how do you choose which voice to use out in the world? And is it really wise to show your real personality in a professional setting?
This is the topic we’re diving into today on MarieTV. You’ll learn two simple keys to consciously choosing a genuine brand voice that best represents you, and helps you make the difference you were born to make.

Whether it’s from a fear that your work’s not good enough, or that somehow you’re unethically “taking” from others…
Left uncheck, seller’s guilt can derail the success and joy you deserve and stop you from making the difference you’re meant to make.
