Is Your Fear of Visibility Really an Asset?

[Creative Freedom S7E7]

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

Not long ago, when people asked me that question, I’d say “invisibility” almost without thinking about it. But then I realized that, for as much as I thought being invisible might be cool, I also very much wanted to be seen. Being invisible was really more about wanting to stay safe - which, as we discussed in a previous episode, is really an illusion and all about being comfortable. Something, kind of the opposite of what building a business is about.

Being invisible - especially in your business - has advantages… some hidden advantages that you’re probably not even consciously aware of. Today, we’re going to shine a light on these perks of invisibility so that you can make some empowered decisions about when to step into your spotlight and when to stay carefully tucked away in the shadows.
