Step Up, Stand Out 👊

camera confidence leadership Sep 20, 2021

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that last year was the biggest year since I opened the doors of my video business and I hit the 7 figure mark for the first time ever!

But, in a truly incredible coming of age tale, the pandemic turned out not to be purely just a professional success for me… You see, since the tender age of 7, I have lived with Alopecia Universalis, an autoimmune condition which means I have no hair at all - anywhere! 

This has meant that for the longest time, I have been known to have wildly different hair colours from one day to the next, but on a deeper level it has meant that in a world where ‘different’ isn’t always celebrated, I have spent a lot of time (and money!) trying to fit in.

Recently however, I decided that I was tired of pretending that I wasn’t any different. I am ME in every way except how I show up visually, so after 25 years of wearing a wig, I made the decision to reveal myself to the world as me and go without.

I have chosen to show up fully as myself regardless of how others may perceive me.

You see, if the way I look affects whether or not someone will work with me, then I’d rather not work with that potential client anyhow.

All of my clients are fun, intelligent and incredible humans and I know that it is not my hair or lack thereof that has created and maintained those working relationships.

It’s the quality of workmanship we’ve provided, the relationships we’ve invested into and the outcomes we’ve delivered; that’s what has brought about the ongoing clients and navigated us to become a 7 figure business.

So, to the future I say - this is me. I am proud of who I am and who I’ve become despite being dealt an unusual hand.

I’m proud of my optimism, my sunny disposition, my can-do attitude and intelligence - and my gorgeous head! And as you can see in my photo - it certainly doesn’t affect how I show up on camera. 

So my message to you today, is this, if you've been procrastinating about getting in front of the camera, hitting record, going live or presenting virtually - dig deep and find the confidence within you to step up and stand out.

You know it. Now Show it.
