I don’t want a ‘faceless’ brand so here’s what I’m going to do...
Hey hey all you gorgeous humans! It’s me...Skye.
For those who don’t know me, Ruby Olive is the business I started in my spare bedroom many years ago and Ruby Olive is my actual grandmother (she’s just beautiful). For those of you that have been around on my journey (big thanks for hanging around)...sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve shown my face in newsletters, on social and on the website. I’ll be completely honest….I HATE being in front of the camera and I do find it so much more comfortable being behind the scenes (and out of sight). I kinda get that I need to do it though...I don’t want RO to become a ‘faceless’ brand. We’re about real people with real relationships, living real lives. Being comfortable is just so easy though. And is there anything wrong with being ‘comfortable’?
Last week I went to an absolutely amazing conference along with 180 other kick-arse women (serious food for the soul). We listened, we cried, we laughed, we danced, we connected. When I came home I started to digest the inspiring stories of women facing fears and pushing through comfort zones (and the magic that happens as a result). I started thinking about the things I know I should do, but keep making excuses for...they just happen to be the things that make me feel ‘uncomfortable’. I thought about the importance of getting out of that comfort zone and how we simply can’t grow if we don’t push ourselves to do the things that scare us.
So to YOU... our beautiful RO wider community, you’re my witness and my accountability. Between now and Christmas my goal is to get over my fear and get in front of that camera...(ekkkk!) and show a little bit more of myself to the world! BAM! (Warning: you may see an open mouthed smile or two...or three)
Anyone else got a little fear and keen to join me in pushing that comfort zone to the curb? Send me a little email at firstname.lastname@example.org and together let’s show it who’s boss!
Keep Living Boldly!
