Criticism in general just makes us cringe. I’ve never heard someone say “Oh, I love criticism!”!! Sure, constructive criticism helps us grow, but when we’re in the thick of it– no matter how constructive it is– it can be hurtful and hard to process.
Laylee Emadi invited me to join her on her podcast So, Here’s The Thing to talk about criticism: both the intense criticism I felt publicly through Creative at Heart and also one-on-one with clients and vendors. We also talked about what it looks like to build community alongside criticism (and how I don’t think you can have one without the other!).
In this episode, I break down:
- Steps to becoming community oriented (even if your biz is just you!)
- Ways to build a loyal following (that loves you despite criticism!)
- Practical ways to overcome public and private criticism
- My unpopular opinion on community 😉
