Afraid of being a public persona? You're not alone. Maybe you fear putting something out there because too many people might see it. Or criticize your work. Realize that when we keep playing smaller than we're capable of, we prevent ourselves from living out our mission in life.
There is a visionary leader inside each one of us. In this week's episode, Dianne Allen, together with her special guest, Tamara Thompson, talks about the fear of visibility and imposter syndrome.
Part One of ‘Fear of Visibility + Imposter Syndrome’
Tamara Thompson is the CEO of Serious Take Productions, a premium video production company. Business owners hire her to visually and emotionally share their stories. They inspire and establish their authority through media creatively and compellingly, in a way that fits their brand.
Her clients are in the personal and professional development industry: speakers, coaches, consultants, agency owners that have built a business around their expertise. They have a proven track record of helping transform the lives of clients. They have produced reputable results.

Some of them may even want practical training on how to create videos, what to say, and how to use video and media to sell more effectively.
Her mission is to turn everyday people into influencers. She helps business owners build a scalable company and become more visible consistently online to attract more clients without having to chase people around or be tech-savvy.

They want to position themselves differently on social media than the way they are in their everyday practices. Put yourself out there and don't worry about what other people think.

If you want to get better, you have to be willing to step out and take a risk. Think about what you're doing to get where you want to go. Come up with a plan to expand.
