We’re baaack!

From our summer holiday, that is.

Gotta say, it was a blissful two weeks. I basically did a stay-cation and Josh and I split our time between the beach and then totally off the grid (no cell service or internet) in the country.

I made some interesting discoveries, too.

It took me 2 days to completely shift out of work mode and into vacation mode, which is a huge improvement over my last extended break. (That time took me about 6 days). My time off was mostly filled with reading, bike rides, movie nights and, one of my favorite pastimes, cooking loads of great meals.

I also did a 10 day detox (no sugar, gluten or dairy — which is impressive for a woman who loves cheese and wine as much as I do!) and could not believe the difference it made.

Time off was extremely rejuvenating, and I’m thrilled to be back to share today’s MarieTV with you.

There’s never been a better time to grow an audience for your products, services and ideas. But with so much noise out there, what’s the key to not only stand out — but to create real and lasting impact through your work?

IMPORTANT: don’t think you can skip this one if you’re not “technically” an entrepreneur. In the modern workplace, it’s important to use your voice, speak up for what matters and take responsibility to create meaning through your work.

My guest today, Todd Henry, says the key to achieving all of the above lies in developing your authentic voice.  

Todd is the author of Louder Than Words (discussed today), Die Empty and The Accidental Creative.

Now, Todd and I would love to hear from you. If you want your work to resonate, you’ve got to be clear on the following three questions:

  1. What do I care about?
  2. What do they (my audience) care about?
  3. What ideas already have momentum?

Leave a comment below with your answers. Do your best to share as much detail as you can because as thousands of incredible souls come here each week for insight and inspiration. Your story may just be what someone else needs to have a breakthrough.

Important: please share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. may be deleted as they can come across as spammy.

The world really does need that special gift that only you have. There’s a part of you that you were born with, that must be expressed.

Give yourself the time right now to reaffirm or refine your voice, so you can express your work more powerfully.

Thank you so much for reading, watching and sharing your voice here today.

P.S. Sharing is caring. Send this post to your favorite friends, colleagues or clients — anyone who’s working on developing their voice and has a dream to make a bigger impact in the world.

With love,
