Episode 103. "People are very reticent to pitch themselves... Don't let the fear of rejection hold you back from putting yourself out there when you know you can be helpful -- when you really feel that inside of you."
~Cher Hale, director and founder at Ginkgo Public Relations
Raise your hand if you’ve experienced a new wave of creator impostor symptoms since shelter-in-place orders began. You’re not alone.
When crisis strikes - world-wide and well outside our control - the brain turns up the volume on negative self-talk, making it next to impossible to pitch ourselves. We wonder about our ability to serve our communities. We downplay our hard-fought experience. We worry about appearing insensitive.
Cher Hale, owner of Ginkgo Public Relations, says your message still matters - now more than ever. Her advice for confused creative imposters? Stay in your lane no matter how compelling a similar creative’s 180º pivot appears. Whether that means shifting to daily Facebook Live postings or putting your business on pause, stay genuine.
Ultimately, Cher reminds us that we’ve created something; we’re experts at that! A crisis shouldn’t radically alter our fundamental message or our ability to support the communities we’ve built.
Pitch your true self out there - when you’re ready.
