Are you still afraid to show yourself online? It’s hard to be a personal brand when you’re still struggling with showing the personal part, so what can you do about it?

With more emphasis on being more authentic and connecting, plus the push for more video based content, entrepreneurs are having to come face to face with their fear of having their imperfections on display for the virtual world to see.

Cara Rice knows exactly what it’s like to be stuck hiding behind a “business guise” and showing up online in an authentic and often vulnerable way, and she’s sharing with us how she overcame the fear of showing up online, and how you can too.

In this episode of the podcast, we talk about:

  • The role of video in social media marketing
  • How do you overcome the fear of sharing your story and being vulnerable
  • How your imperfection can actually help your audience
  • What to work on instead of trying to get rid of fear
  • Plus the most common limiting belief that Cara sees and when it most often shows up
