We all want to grow our voice and outreach. In this episode, we talk about the importance of putting yourself out there and not solely relying on having other people find us.
Sitting back and waiting for everyone to come find you sounds great. That's organic outreach, with all the benefits with less effort in the interim. One great example of someone with amazing organic outreach is Beyonce.
Are You Beyonce?
You're probably not Beyonce (if you are Beyonce, HI!). A celebrity like her or Adele has people organically searching for her every single day. That's quite some organic outreach.
I don't know if you are a celebrity or not. If you're not, you need to make action happen to grow your brand instead of wishing upon a star that action will come to you. So we can work to put ourselves out there.
It can be tough to put yourself out there. When you put your talents out on display, you open yourself up to criticism.
The Art of Likability on Haters:
You know what? That's totally okay. You don't need to have 100% of everyone you come across like you.
(Imagine a community like the Art of Likability telling you that you don't need to be liked by everyone!)
Put yourself out there and let your supporters (up to 95% of everyone else) and your detractors (up to 5% of everyone at MOST) sort themselves out.
