Honesty Is The Best Policy
"I talked about the importance of vulnerability and honesty. The moment I started sharing my stories and experiences that's when things started to really shift for me." --Chriselle Lim
Let's face it. After winning Blogger of the Year award, everyone wants to be Chriselle Lim. Everyone meaning me.
They may seem small to others but are milestones in my perspective because they're investments for the future; whether that be purchasing a domain name, buying an email redirect, business cards or even a Wordpress plan, they were all things I wanted to do but always thought I wasn't "ready" for it.
Revisiting the idea of expanding my team made me wonder if Polydeux was ready for this step or if I was just doubting myself again.
I didn't want to disappoint my new team member either. I wondered if the work I would give her would disillusion the image she initially had, which made her so eager to work with us to begin with. I wondered if maybe she was more experienced than me and if I even had anything to offer her because of that.
The back-and-forth drove me crazy and was a combination of intimidation of her and my own fears and flattery. I thought that maybe because someone is approaching me for a position that Polydeux IS ready for this step.
All in all, I wasn't ready for that step. Polydeux wasn't ready for that step. Justin told me that if I haven't completely mastered handling our brand, that what makes ME qualified to handle an extra member?
