Seth Godin is a marketing guru who sends out daily emails to people who are interested in hearing little tidbits he has to share with us on life, success, business and more. I like them because they’re usually very short (yet effective), and I can read them while I walk from my car to my office in the mornings.

One part of his message on September 22nd said something that instantly resonated with me.

Too often, the corporate world pushes talking points onto people, and more often than that, speakers and writers get nervous and they turn into parrots. The only reason to go through the hassle and risk of putting yourself out there is to be out there… you, not a clone.”

I’ve been writing this blog for over a year now, and I’m still trying to find my “voice”! I realize that while my voice will probably continue to change, I hope that the way in which I deliver MY message will always be MY voice.

The reason I think this is worth a unique post is so I can challenge you guys. Find YOUR voice. Find YOUR way of doing things. And once you do, stick to it fearlessly and without shame! Over the last 12 months or so, I’ve become SO much more comfortable in my own skin, I’ve begun “using my words” more to actually say how I feel about things, and it is such a great way to live!

With that being said, this blog is going to be more about ME and what I want to see. Now, I’m still 10000% interested in what you guys want to see or hear about or learn, but if I don’t get any ideas, questions or feedback, the posts won’t stop! I’m curious as to how you guys will react to me actually posting things that I want to see and not stopping myself because “no one else would care” about what I liked. I feel like there’s a part of you that comes here to see exactly that… what I feel, or like, or think.

So, here’s to me. And here’s to you. And here’s to our unique voices!

Here’s the link to the full post!

    Love it!! I follow your blog to hear just that, YOUR voice, your thoughts and your opinions! I enjoy being around great people and since I don’t get to see you much now… I rely on the blog 😉 talk time is my favorite. I’m glad your more comfortable in your skin and are choosing to express yourself, the world could use it!!
