Okay, I think we can all agree that self-love is extremely important in our lives in general but we tend to overlook this when talking about business. In this post I want to show you just how much self-love plays a roll in your business and I'm curious to see what you think about it! Leave a comment below and let me know your feelings on this topic!
As a business owner we are on social media a lot (if you're not currently, get on that ish!) and when doing so, we are opening ourselves up for criticism, trolls and so on. We have to learn to either have tough skin or just learn to ignore those speaking ill of us. I'm sure you can guess, this is where self-love comes in. When you have people telling you you're ugly, you shouldn't be this business, blah blah blah, you have to combat that by practicing self-love and knowing exactly who you are. You have to 100% comfortable with yourself and understand that those people are not worth losing sleep over.
When we practice self-love and acceptance we come across as confident and very sure which also gives our customer the idea that we know what we are talking about when it comes to a particular topic (but you shouldn't be talking about a topic if you don't know it well). The more we get to know ourselves the more clear our brand will be, because as you know, you are your brand.
Another reason self-love is extremely important when running a business is when you are on video you have to be completely comfortable with who you are and what you look like. This one can be quite tough at first because we are so hard on ourselves but the more we practice self-love and acceptance, the more confident we will become and the more comfortable we will be on video!
The point is, you have to be completely comfortable with YOU because this will come across as passion and confidence in your business which is what people are looking for. Practice some self-love affirmations, get comfortable with yourself, get used to being on camera and in social media and if all else fails, put some shades on and block out the haters!
