Hello fellow entrepreneurs and brand enthusiasts! I’m excited to share with you the latest episode of the Build Better Brands podcast, where I had the pleasure of interviewing the incredible Natalie Bailey. As a business owner and confidence coach, Natalie has a unique perspective on how we can elevate our businesses and unleash our inner confidence. Trust me, this episode is packed with valuable takeaways that can transform not only your brand but your entire life.
Natalie began by introducing us to the concept of the “triangle of life” – health, wealth, and happiness. As entrepreneurs, it’s easy to get caught up in the daily grind and forget to take care of ourselves, our relationships, and the things that bring us joy outside of business. But here’s the thing: by embracing a holistic view and nurturing these areas, we can add so much more value to the world. It’s a powerful reminder that success isn’t just about our business achievements; it’s about finding harmony and fulfillment in all aspects of life.
One of the key messages that resonated with me was Natalie’s belief that confidence is not something we’re born with; it’s something we learn and cultivate. Think about it – when you were a child, you didn’t know how to tie your shoelaces or even walk. But through practice and determination, you mastered those skills. The same goes for confidence. It’s a muscle we can strengthen by stepping out of our comfort zones and embracing new challenges. Sure, it’s not always an easy process, but it’s worth it because it opens up a world of possibilities.
Now, let’s talk about the importance of confidence in our entrepreneurial journey. Natalie stressed that if we don’t fully believe in ourselves and our abilities, it’s difficult to convince others to do so. Confidence is the foundation of our success because it instills belief and hope in those around us. It’s that internal validation that fuels our drive and propels us forward. So, before seeking external validation, we need to nurture that unwavering self-belief and confidence within ourselves. Trust me, when you radiate confidence, others can’t help but believe in you too.
Confidence, however, should never be mistaken for arrogance. Natalie drew a clear distinction between the two. Confidence means knowing and believing in ourselves while helping others genuinely. Arrogance, on the other hand, involves looking down on others – something we should always avoid. It’s important to maintain humility and treat others with respect, even as we grow in confidence.
Throughout the episode, Natalie shared some incredible insights. One that struck a chord with me was her reminder that confidence exists within each and every one of us. We just need to unleash it in areas where we want to improve. Whether it’s public speaking, networking, or even starting a new venture, we all have the confidence within us to tackle those challenges head-on.
To wrap things up, I want to emphasize that you don’t need to be a corporate giant like Nike to build an extraordinary brand. The Build Better Brands podcast, hosted by the amazing Danielle Clarke, is here to remind us that branding is about presenting our best selves consistently to our audience. And guess what? We’re all capable of achieving that.
