It’s definitely looking like winter here in Central Ontario, and I think today is a little bit of a let down day. The holiday hoopla is all done with, Shaun’s gone back to his girlfriend’s for a few days, and I’m feeling a little at loose ends with no one to cook for or do things with. Tomorrow I need to go out and do the normal things like hit the grocery store and do my laundry, but for today the temptation to just curl up with a cup of tea and watch Hallmark movies is pretty darned strong.
But before I give in, I have goodies to share starting with this goodie from about a year ago. I found it when I was going through some old files, and figured that it bears repeating…
Today’s Read: Don’t Let the “Expert” Thing Hold You Back
One of the biggest things I see holding people back in their business is the feeling that they’re not an expert, so they don’t have anything of value to share. Yes, authority and expertise build trust, but they’re not everything when it comes to building your business. There’s a lot to be said for being able to relate to your target audience and it’s so much easier to do that and build a strong relationship when you are just a few steps ahead of them.
I know a lot of experts who are so far ahead of me in things that I find them more than a little intimidating and hard to relate to. They don’t remember what it’s like to be a beginner and a lot of the times they take for granted what they know.
Here’s the thing. Your readers, subscribers, and customers don’t need you to know it all. They simply need you to be a few steps ahead of them. They need you to be able to explain what they should do next on their journey towards the end goal. You don’t have to have reached that goal yet. All you need is a good plan and more experience than they have.
All this to say that you shouldn’t shy away from doing what you want to do because you don’t consider yourself an expert. And this is especially true in the low-content niche. You don’t have to have a fine art degree to create decent coloring books. You don’t have to be able to draw from scratch to create decent journal templates. There are enough tools, templates, and training available today to show you how you can create pretty much anything you want. All you have to have is the vision and the motivation to find the answers.
And when you’re building your community, there’s a lot of value in sharing your own journey. It’s okay for you to be part of your target audience. In fact, it’s better than okay because you know their pain and the problems they face. It can help you create more authentic content. It helps you find the best possible solutions for someone in your situation. You can create products and training programs that address the important issues your customers face. You can share the products and services that have helped you along the way. You can make a difference and help them move forwards while you continue on your own journey.
You have something of value to add that a true expert can’t share. You can give your community feedback and ideas based on what you’re experiencing right now. You can share what is and isn’t working for you. Most importantly you can be a source of inspiration and motivation as your target audience watches you work towards the same goals and aspirations they have.

Thrive Anywhere’s Flex Pass Open This Week
One of the best purchases I made last year was Lynette’s Passport. This year she’s improved the program and renamed it the Flex Pass and the doors are open now through January 1. This is your one and only chance to save 70% on your purchases for an entire year.
With the Flex Pass, you get a personal pass code with a $200 stored value – like a gift card – that you can use to shop their entire store. Unlike the old passport that limited you to products of the current year, the Flex Pass has no such restrictions. You can shop now or use it for new products in 2022 at 70% off!
Lynette only offers this program once a year. Twice if you’re lucky. And they don’t discount over 50% so this is a rare opportunity. Get the full details here:

And that’s it for me this afternoon. I’m off to find some lunch and decide what to do for the rest of the day. I think there’s probably a trainer session in my future, but other than that I really don’t know today. It’s kinda nice to not have a schedule right now.
Have an amazing day! Create what makes your heart happy!
