You’ve done it. We’ve all done it.


People will like you because of your social highlight reel.

The top line fodder you offer on social media – only the best selfies.

Or video blog.

Or Podcast.

Thing is – people want to have a connection.


You liked Robin Roberts as a morning television personality.

You fell in love with her – when she took you on her cancer journey.

Same with radio friend Jen Myers – and broadcast buddy Paul Cook.

On September 27th, you formed a deeper opinion of – these two.

Regardless of political persuasion.

You want to truly bind with an audience beyond being a media talent?

Let them see your beauty – and scars.

Your flaws – your family.

Sharing moments behind your curtain makes you more – like them.

You’ll race past being a ‘media talent’ and become – a human being.

Do this and watch the audience compassion – and loyalty – grow.
