  1. Thanks for reminding that authenticity is power. Just saw your WordPress, you are really doing a great job John 👍👍


  2. I like it! Thanks for the reminder.

    Recently, someone showed me Kindra Hall’s content. She’s got some great videos, like this clip with tips on whether to share a personal story. Great stuff!

      Hi Craig. Thanks for sharing the video. I like Kindra’s advice: (1) Can you leave parts of it out? (2) Are you happy with it being out there? (3) Can it help someone?

      Good stuff!
