How do I share more of my personality online?

Hi Steph,

I have a bit of a “superficial” question for you. I’m a service-based business owner and I feel like I’m struggling to connect with my ideal customers. I keep getting leads that aren’t quite a fit, and I think it’s because I’m not being clear enough with my values & personality up front. But I’m also terrified to show up in my business, especially when it comes to showing my face! Eek! How did you become comfortable with showing up so fully in your business? Any tips you can share? I know it would probably help my business if I was more visible, because when I have 1:1 conversations with people I am able to make such wonderful connections. How do I start sharing more of myself with my audience?

Thanks in advance!

It can be a huge boost to your business to start sharing more of your personality online, especially as a service-based business owner.

But if you’re not used to being on camera or audio, it can be an intimidating prospect! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

I know first-hand how hard it can be to get comfortable with sharing more of your personality online. I am used to it now, but in the beginning, showing up as myself was pretty scary!

Now that I’ve gotten the hang of sharing myself in my business, I want to help you build that muscle and start showing up more fully & authentically as yourself. ๐Ÿ˜

The outcomes are worth it, not just for the growth of your business, but also for the confidence that you can personally develop as a result.ย 

In this video, I’ll be sharing five useful strategies that personally helped me to start sharing more of myself in my business life.ย 


Spoiler alert: We want to know who you are.

Think about the service-based business owners you love the most. Chances are, what you love about them is not just the services they’re offering! It’s their personality, their values, and everything else that makes them unique. People buy from people, especially people they like, know, and trust. So if you’re a service-based business owner who wants to make an impact, showing up more fully as yourself is a great place to start. We all want to know what makes you different!
