Remembering my late father and friends when they arrived at home after a fishing trip and the laughter in my mom’s eyes and smile on her face when they were discussing the big one that got away.
My mom and I had many laughs through the years due to these conversations and most of the time their hand gestures in regard to the size of the fish, was what gave them away. Hoping you have a clear picture of this.
Yesterday, whilst I was busy with a Facebook post I was recalling these fishing trips because I was posting about authenticity, being genuine and authentic.
Previously, we did have discussions in this regard, but since we are all trying to make our mark in the Digital World we need to focus on being authentic in what we are doing. We need to focus on doing things in the fashion where we do not become the laughingstock of the Digital World.
That myth of faking it until we make it is a myth and also a lie. I don’t deny my struggles and the challenges I am facing because it does more harm than good especially when you are trying to establish a brand. Remember the similarities between our Physical World and our Digital World and how they integrate to our business or reflecting who we are as individuals.
There is this idea that we can separate our digital image or reputation from our Physical World but I think we all know how our flaunts or mistakes digitally becomes major discussions in our Physical World so my advice to walk with shoulders tall is starting with behaving in the same manner online and offline.
Another tip to remember it’s not so much about what you think or what you want, rather than knowing who your prospective client is and where they are feeling the pain.
Addressing our clients needs will over time contribute to our success and our online reputation or let me rather say our online as well as offline reputation.
