Nowak explained why emotions can lead clients to great business wisdom and how they can use them as a powerful advantage, rather than avoid them.
“Being stuck in what I call your wounded heart – the one in the shadows that you won’t listen to – can look like a cash crunch, revenue rollercoaster or attracting less than ideal clients when you continue to allow it to influence your business,” she said.
In her 25 years in brand visibility and positioning, Nowak has learned that even when clients want to be visible, yet struggle to fully step into that visibility, there are often deeper fears and wounds at play.
“Anxiety around standing out, making a mistake, and getting kicked out of social circles are common fears that keep clients hiding out and holding back from sharing their message and magic. The good news is that once you get comfortable with the parts of yourself you are least comfortable with you can clear those old fears and patterns for good,” Nowak said.
