If we hop into the way back machine to say 2008, you would find a very different Misty standing there.
Brown hair, brown glasses, brown life really. I was in a relationship for years that left me no room to really be who I was. For some reason I’d just given that up willingly and became someone I thought I had to be.
It gave me everything I thought I ever wanted. There was a high paying job, a stable relationship, a nice little townhouse in a fancy suburb and money in the bank for the first time ever.
And let me tell you, I was beyond miserable.
It took me almost 2 years to figure out what was going on. 2 long years of self help, reflection and then basically changing every single thing in my life. I mean from who I was with to where I lived to how I dressed to the color of my hair.
So of course when I started coaching there was not a damn thing anyone was going to even THINK about telling me that would make me put some mask back on.
I went into video calls as me, I wrote content as me and I did live video as me. Messy hair, tenancy to babble, occasional swearing and all. The oddest thing happened – people liked it!
No kidding, I started gaining an audience, and then fans, then clients, then students….. all knowing full well exactly who I am and what I am about. I was floored. Hell, many days I still am floored. And proud.
It doesn’t matter where or how we interact; from text to voice to video to in person. If I’m writing sales copy, or social media posts or just babbling out my story like you see here – I can assure you of one thing.
You will always be getting just me. The real, unfiltered, unmasked true me. I’d never have it any other way!
