MOTM #561: Overcoming the Fear of Ridicule

Monday, March 11th, 2024

The thing about being vulnerable, leading from the front, and posting about your life and your business online is that someone’s always gonna talk their shit. So many people I work with are conditioned by culture and society to stay quiet in order to be “accepted” but y’all, that’s not real acceptance! Hiding yourself away like that is unsustainable, and you should be out here, showing the world who you truly are. That’s how you find your people. If the fear of ridicule is holding you back from showing up online… well, you already know what to do.

Let’s chat.

Welcome to Maestro on the Mic, a podcast that helps online business owners find their passion, generate more profit, and build a life that they love. I'm your host, Dr. Shanté Cofield, aka The Movement Maestro, and I’m stoked to have you here. I hope this podcast inspires you to make moves and do the thing. Action is the answer.

In This Episode You'll Hear:

  • Self promotion is a skill
  • Cultural conditioning is real
  • You don’t have to learn from someone just like you
  • Focus on your people
  • You might need to have some tough conversations
  • Do it scared
  • Choose to believe the evidence you’ve built
