Kirsten recently sent out an incredibly vulnerable email to her email list, and was amazed at the responses, the majority of which were something along the lines of, “OMG Me TOO!!”. So, is transparency in business okay? Let’s discuss.
The bottom line is, these feelings are normal, but too many of us feel ashamed when we feel that way, and we feel like we are struggling alone. It’s the same with celebrating our successes – we hold back from patting ourselves on the back because we don’t want to come across as arrogant or proud.
The feeling of comparison is real. Jealousy is real. And pride in your work is real. And all of those feelings are perfectly okay to vocalize. It’s time to make transparency the norm, not the exception.
