Anytime you’re putting yourself out there, you’re doing so to an audience. Even if that audience is just one person, you’re still using your power of choice. You’re picking your audience, your timing, your environment, your delivery method

Today we get to talk with Nicole Holland who I know through the podcast scene together. She has a couple podcasts herself (Business Building Rockstars and Get Guest Ready) and her main squeeze is hooking podcasters up with really killer podcast guests. We talk a little bit about that today but mainly we’re talking about why it is so gosh darned important to set up a velvet rope around your customer experience and why you need to put your own oxygen mask on first before putting yourself out there and crashing and burning. hard.

This conversation applies to artists and business owners alike, so even if the business-y talk is a bit strange (because sometimes us business owners can sometimes go into a vocabulary bubble that doesn’t always make sense to non-business-y folks) I’m urging you to stick this one out, because it applies to you, even if your don’t own a business.

Brave Takeaway

Your Brave Take-Away from today’s show is to make that list of things you really want and a separate list of things you really don’t want. You can do this with your artwork, your career, your relationships, your business… I want you to do this so that it’s easier for you to see what or who is a total hands-down-YES and who is an absolutely-not-NO. It’s a really helpful exercise to come back to over and over again.

We’d love to hear all about your favorite parts of today’s Bare Naked Bravery. You can find Nicole Holland and myself on facebook, twitter, instagram, and more. Go ahead and tag us so we can cheer you on and see what you’re up to.
