          My Story

          How I gained confidence to start sharing my knowledge online.

          I was struggling to find my professional identity online. I had a LinkedIn profile, but it just wasn’t me. I wasn’t sure how to represent myself or what to share. I would be learning growing and could happily talk to people in person what I was doing but I was uncomfortable with sharing this on social networks.

          I would say to myself that there is no value to posting content on social media – what do I even say or how would this be interpreted. I told myself this wasn’t something I wouldn’t need to do so I didn’t for 6 years.
