Be Yourself Online – Shedding the Corporate Identity….
One of the things I’ve found challenging and interesting as I move into online entrepreneurship is the need to allow my ACTUAL PERSONALITY to come through in the content I create.
It’s interesting that the corporate or government worlds encourage a different professional dynamic–one in which all the particular edges of our unique personalities get smoothed off and we become more homogenized.
I find that when I write, especially about finance, it is not easy to shed the “professional diplomat providing analysis” identity and style.
But, you know what is great? The more I write online, the more my natural personality is slowly coming to the fore. It’s actually a lot more relaxed to just be who you are and lay it out there.
I hope at the end of my 90 day challenge that I will have shed the Procrustean, corporate style that eclipsed my natural voice — that I will finally be myself online.
