I don’t know about you, but for many years the single thing that kept me from really moving forward with my voiceover business was a lack of confidence. Oh, I knew that I had a “nice” voice. I knew that I was pretty good at reading technical copy and sounding like I knew everything I was saying. But, fundamentally, I didn’t really believe I was good enough to accomplish everything I was hoping to accomplish.
Two people have made a huge difference in my thinking over the last few years, and that has made all the difference.
Nancy Wolfson. And Marice Tobias. These two ladies, through their superb coaching, helped me understand that I am enough. I just need to do what I all ready know how to do and simply be myself. Their methods are different, but between the two of them, the message finally sank in.
Now, I mention all of this to introduce you to a recent blog by Seth Godin called Conflicted. It’s well worth a couple of minutes of your time.
You see his key point? The person you most need to market to is … you. You have to believe, really believe, you are enough before you can truly moving forward the way you want to move forward. In fact, all of the other marketing and selling you may be trying to do? Until you understand that you really are enough, isn’t going to get you anywhere near what you’re looking for. But catch hold of this simple truth and the momentum will begin to build.
Try it. You’ll see.
