Let’s talk about HATERS for a second.

Do you have haters? Are you AFRAID to have haters? Would something like a nasty comment make your stomach turn??

OK so my heart isn’t made of ice which is why some comments (which I get often…) can hurt a little. Not a lot, just a little.

But the comment I received on my post last week? That comment didn’t even sting for a second.

The thing is, when you get visible, you’ll have haters. If you’ve never had a hater, you’re NOT out there enough. You haven’t opened yourself up to people or gotten in front of enough eyes.

You haven’t stirred the pot enough.

But let me tell you something about haters. They’re NOTHING to be afraid of. Like, at all.

Because if you’re acting in your truth, and speaking from the heart…. if your business is operating within INTEGRITY, HONESTY, AND AUTHENTICITY….

Haters can’t puncture your shield of “realness”.

Their words fall on deaf ears because YOU KNOW YOUR TRUTH.

Those comments didn’t get a second glance from me because they’re so off base with who I am, and who my tribe KNOWS me to be- they don’t even warrant a response.

In fact, I didn’t even SEE this comment because I was too busy SERVING my audience. It wasn’t until a dedicated member of my TRIBE pointed it out to me that I even gave this any of my attention.

One of my core values is taking the negative and turning it into a positive so this comment, no doubt said in anger and with the intent to tear me down… is being brought to light to teach YOU that yes, this shit happens, but it’s nothing to be afraid of.

I’ll lead, and you can watch me brush this shit off my shoulders like nobody’s business. Because that’s what I want you to do, too.

Don’t be disempowered by any comments that try to hurt you.

Don’t be afraid of getting out there because you don’t want to deal with people.

YOUR CAUSE IS TOO GREAT.

Listen- the world needs YOU.  Be fierce and fearless in the pursuit of your passion.
