Many people tell me that they hate the sound of their voice, or they don’t like seeing themselves in videos.

Is that you? πŸ™‚

It is a common reason why people don’t like showing up in person on camera or using audio to share

Today’s trend is about Showing up in person.

As a CEO, a professional or an entrepreneur, it’s essential to show up in person to connect with your audience at a deeper level and build trust.

By in person, I mean if you are in a virtual world, your tools are video, podcast or live streams.

Writing brilliant and clever pieces is great, but it’s vital to show your face from time to time when you share your updates and vision. Showing up in person help people to see you as a real person, connect at a deeper level and build trust.

There is something magical about showing up. It takes your relationship way up to the next level.

Don’t worry; you don’t have to create a high-end production.

It can be on your mobile phone, sending out encouragement or some inspirational words to your team or your audience whilst walking to the gym, taking your dog out, showing up in your daily life. In fact, the stats show that people connect even more when it’s not a polished video. It looks more natural.

Stop hiding behind corporate talk and become more human this year.

Building an authentic personal branding is about showing up as a human – it’s ok not to be perfect all the time 😊

Not showing up in person is a wasted opportunity to build a deep connection with your audience, get them to know you better, and build trust.
