Episode 98. The transformative power of allowing yourself to be seen.

Today, we're going to talk about one of the hardest, trickiest, sneakiest little challenges that tend to hold so many of us back …

Allowing ourselves to be seen.

Are you the one who takes all the family photos, but you're never in them? Or are you the one who loves the way your friends look in all your pictures, but you always criticize yourself? 😞

Maybe you’re the one who has a great little practice going, but when your audience checks out your website, they can’t find a single photo of you.

Or perhaps you've got a picture up there, but it’s ten years old and you don't look anything like that anymore. 🥸

(Whoooo boy - that's a mistake, because when people meet you, there's a big disconnect right off the bat.)

I want to talk about this whole idea of having a good picture taken, because you need this for your website, you need it for marketing materials, you need it when you're giving a talk somewhere.

But here's the problem.

Most of us don't like having our picture taken, and so we shrink, we play small, we hold back, and minimize our talents. Let’s dive into that…

Today we’re going to talk about;

  1. How putting yourself out there can transform your therapy practice.
  2. What happens when you find the right photographer… (#Magic!)
  3. How to feel your best in front of the camera.
  4. What we can learn from a bunch of six year old girls (seriously!).

I know that many of you can relate to how hard this can be, but it's time to change that, guys.

It’s time to let the people who need you, find you, see you, and connect with you.

You don't help anybody by blowing off your brilliance!

So, show up and let yourself be seen - because once you make the decision to stop hiding, amazing things start to happen.

(And if you like this episode, you’re going to LOVE what I have in store for you next week!).

We are adding a new feature to the podcast soon, and it could include you! Interested?

It's called "Coaching Over Coffee", where one of our listeners is invited to be on the program, sharing a particular issue from their practice they’d like to get some help with. I’ll provide live coaching, which we'll then edit and share on the podcast.

This is a great way to get some help for your practice, get your work in front of more people, and inspire your peers at the same time!

If you'd like to be considered, just click here to complete a short, simple application, and I'll get right back to you.
