Brand Balance

Last night I realized that I’ve created a brand that is different than who I am. Don’t get me wrong, inspiring and helping people is a HUGE part of my purpose, my passion and my existence…but my brand is far more uptight than I am in real life. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? I mean, I believe in being careful about what you put out in the public, because you represent your brand…but isn’t being authentic more important? Those that are near, dear and very close to me know that I have a HUGE personality. Sometimes I feel suffocated by self-imposed censorship like I’ve somehow trapped that huge personality in a very small container. I think that it’s time to unleash the true me…
