TRANSCRIPT (more or less)
Hey Guys, Brittany Hammond here, the founder of Untamed Lifestyle & Business. I just wanted to pop in and share this message that really pulled on a heart string this week
She made a career out of gossiping and judging people (on her 8 year long talk show)
Whaaaatt ?? Wait, slow down!
Remember how I always say ......
understanding is the key to someone's heart
I used to watch Wendy Williams out of a guilty pleasure of the celebrity gossip but secretly I judged her as one of those Americans who made a career out of gossiping (think PEREZ HILTON)
Recently, as I embark on my own journey of self-discovery and honing MY message ...a little case of divine timing happened and one of Wendy's <3 to <3 interviews came up on YouTube
She talks about her childhood, her parents said she was TALKING before she was WALKING, that she was shushed + silenced
Even moving towards highschool, the girls were mean to her...and she just stayed focused on herself and began her radio career at age 16.
+ She was opinionated
+ she had a FIRE in her
+ she HAD to use her gift: her voice
Suddenly my judgement for her melted away because I appreciated the boldness + unfiltered-ness
The slogan of her show: SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT
how POWERFUL is that for us today, in our day + age where we are tip toe around using our voice + expressing ourselves ?
She fully claims and owns:
"MY GIFT IS FEARLESSLY TALKING"
She's taken her biggest struggle, her strongest points of personality + leveraged it into making a multiple decade-long career.
So, I want to leave you with this question:
How can you make yourself more understood by your audience. How can you tell your story in a way that makes YOU even more relatable ?
What is your God-given gift ? How can you leverage it ?
