I wasn't always a visibility coach...
Once upon a time, I was a marketing coach for birth workers. I had a podcast. I had a fancy website. I ran a facebook group. I had clients. I had beautiful professional photos. It was the “perfect niche.” I could blend my experience as a birth doula and my years in marketing and business development to create something profitable and enjoyable. It was going great, and my service was much needed in the birth industry. I taught people how to be themselves in their marketing and create brands that felt like a living, breathing reflection of themselves.
And then I realized that I was a hypocrite. While I was teaching people how to become visible online and in social media, I had been hiding.
Sure, I was posting all my pretty photos. But in my personal life, I was going through a health crisis. My chronic illnesses had been rendering me more disabled than ever and were consuming my life. I was shopping for mobility aids and unable to cook or care for my kids like I used to and there were weeks where I was really scared about my future. Yet, here I was, posting old photos of me gardening and strolling around the park smiling. I had completely compartmentalized my business and my life - being too afraid to trust my audience with the messy, the real, the sometimes uncomfortable truth. I had been happily hiding behind my niche, but the longer I hid with the realization that I was lying to myself, the more depressed I became.
Then, I realized that my truth could no longer remain within me. It had to come out. I didn’t know how it was going to affect my business, but I was done hiding.
It poured out of me, and the outcome was life and business altering. I was free.
I was propelled onto a journey that would lead me to become an expert in all things visibility.
