Do you ever feel invisible sometimes? Like your opinion doesn’t matter or what you have to say goes largely ignored?

If your head is nodding yes, I think you’ll really appreciate today’s episode of MarieTV. And honestly…

Even if you feel pretty darn good about your communication skills, there’s always a next level. I mean, I communicate for a living and I’m always catching little habits and patterns to change.

In today’s show, learn five reasons why you and your ideas might not be taken seriously and easy fixes that’ll make a lasting difference.

As I shared in the show, this list isn’t exhaustive but it’s a solid start in the right direction. Now I’d love to hear from you.

Have you ever struggled to be taken seriously? What specific change in your communication or approach made the biggest impact?

Tell me about it in the comments below.

Remember to 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.

Especially with today’s topic, my hope is that we can get a pretty diverse list going that’ll help us all communicate more clearly and powerfully.

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.

One more thing on this topic.

Throughout my career I’ve had loads of people not take me seriously. (Still happens to this day.) Sometimes it’s because I’m a woman. Sometimes it’s because closed minded people believe that someone who laughs and dances and makes goofy jokes can’t possibly have a serious side, too.

My point is this.

Your ideas matter. Your voice deserves to be heard.

While it’s true that some people aren’t going to listen to you no matter how great of a communicator you are, it’s vital that you take responsibility for what you can control.

That includes ensuring that you’re doing everything in your power to communicate powerfully and effectively to those you most wish to serve.

Thank you for watching, reading and sharing. Each week, you make my world and I am so deeply grateful for that.

P.S.  If someone in your life struggles to be taken seriously, please send them this video. It might be the spark of insight they need to move a project powerfully ahead!

With love,
