You’re Going To Get Caught Being Yourself


Balancing professionalism and authenticity can be tricky. Am I being professional, or am I being inauthentic and reserved? Ultimately, there is no right way to be other than yourself! Today, Lori and I open up about our ongoing exploration of being fully ourselves in the public eye and share our tips for maintaining authenticity while meeting societal expectations. We know this process can be challenging and uncomfortable, but by accepting your journey of finding yourself, you will live a more satisfying and enjoyable life, despite any outside criticism.



(1:01) Welcome back to another He Said She Said episode of The Chris Harder Show.

(13:15) Chris asks listeners to share the podcast and leave a 5-star review. 

It's not that people will be mad about who you really are. They'll be upset that you made them believe you were someone else.
