Ask Yourself Difficult Questions – To know who you truly are you must strip away all the things that you are NOT, you must do the hard work of tearing yourself way from the well-meaning opinions of other people; remember your goal is not to follow, it is to innovate and lead.
Begin Before You Are Ready – You are on a journey to find your voice, this takes time and it takes practice, it’s impossible to find your voice without first speaking, sharing and innovating; it’s time you took a risk today and actually began to speak from the guttural places of great passion in your heart, refinement takes place over time, your voice is an uncut diamond, you HAVE to go through the pain if you want to see it polished.

Take Notice Of What Your Readers Are Saying – Listening is vital if you want to create an irresistible online presence, but you must learn to listen in a new way that makes no room for your insecurity or your ego; your goal is neither to appease your critics or form your own love club, your goal is stir and move others towards action.
Don’t Be Predictable – No one enjoys the company of a friend who continues to talk about the same thing in the same old way every time you meet, we are typically drawn to people who are trustworthy and surprising; your voice needs to have a personality, it needs to convey emotion, you need to mix things up from time to time and be irresistible and irascible .
Always Show Up – Fickle lovers always end up lonely, if you don’t show up in a regular and consistent fashion, if you don’t repeatedly produce great content for your audience, then they will quickly forget about you and the love affair that they once had with you will soon be over.
Don’t Allow Your Voice To Be Monolithic – No one else will tell you this, but the days of creating content for a single monolithic audience (i.e. the Christian Market, Mommy Blogger etc) are quickly coming to an end; the internet is a global phenomenon, it’s breaking down the barriers between us, it is tearing down the walls, we are no longer looking for a place to assimilate instead we’re looking for communities with differing perspectives.

Remain In Rhythm With Your Own Heart – The moment you deviate away from your own heart with your voice online, your audience will sense it, when you start to use somebody else’s voice they will question you, so protect the purity in your message and reject the fear and greed paradigm that will attempt to draw you away from everything that makes you remarkable and unique.
