When I pretended

When I pretended

Shannon here with a HUGE EPIC FAIL.

It was a number of years ago when I started Speaking.

And when you’re just starting out and have yet to see any “success” – you do what most people do starting out:


How did I “fake” it?

I had this ONE amazing Speaker in mind when I started out.

And I just wanted to be HER.

I wanted to have her huge stages, massive income and Big Impact.

So I tried to be like her.

And ya know what? It didn’t work!

After enough times falling on my face in front of those early audiences – I realized I can’t be someone else anymore.

I had this inspired idea that if I STOPPED trying to be like her and started to just be ME – it might be easier… and more FUN too!

And ya know what?! EVERYTHING changed.

But I was just SO embarrassed of myself after things turned around.

Especially now, with Mark at my side and we’re rocking a 7-figure Speaking business, LOVING our incredible Tribe – I am SO embarrassed how little I believed in myself then.

Let me know in the comments below:

Did you ever PRETEND and Regret it? How did you turn things around?

Your comment will inspire the Tribe – we’d LOVE to hear from you 🙂
