I was afraid you’d think I was a snob…

Last week I met with one of my VIP clients at the luxurious 5-star Fairmont Palliser hotel in Calgary Alberta.  And, to arrive, I rolled up for valet parking in my 5-star safety rated family minivan… right behind a Mercedes-Benz.  (see below)

It made me chuckle to myself because it was a perfect example of my signature style: hi-luxury with low-ego.

But I haven’t always been so confident in how I show up.

You see, one of my core values is authenticity and for a long time I didn’t think luxury and low ego could co-exist.

I worried that my love of luxurious things would come across as me being a snob, trying too hard and being superficial.  So I downplayed my true desires and told myself it was wrong to indulge.  I played it safe in my marketing and didn’t share what made me unique with my audience.

The result?

I was unhappy AND my marketing fell flat.

What does this mean for you?

It’s a call out encouraging you to really share who you are!  It’s about celebrating what makes you unique – not dismissing or denying your true nature for fear of judgement.

When we are our most authentic selves we are also our most powerful.

And it’s a message that is resonating with many women like those who participated in last week’s #FacebookLiveFriday episode on this same topic…

You can watch the replay for yourself here.

Rolling up for valet parking in my 5-star safety rated family minivan (circa 2007!) last week certainly made me chuckle and realize how far I’ve come in knowing who I am.

And my deepest desire is that YOU show up and honour who you are so that you, too, can become visible to those you’re meant to serve.
