Note: I did become aware that the video was mirrored about five minutes into presentation. After talking about artwork, I stopped referring to anything that might be odd to look at backwards.

Thoughts On When Someone Tells You That You Don't Have Credibility
I recently had someone post a comment on episode 388 that said… “I've been following your Dayone Journaling. One thing is clear you're not a health and fitness expert, not even close…” and “You're pawning yourself off as legit in Health and Fitness when you are not.”

In this episode, I share the whole comment and my thoughts regarding what was said. It is my hope that what I shared will encourage anyone who is struggling with personal feelings of inadequacy or who has been told by someone else that they are not “legit” enough to be a leader in a particular niche.

Michael Hyatt recently made the decision to remove all blog comments from his website. He blogged about why he did this here. In the episode, I share what has been going through my mind since reading about this.

 
 
When Social Media Strategies Clash
In yet another comment on last week's episode, I had another person post a different criticism. This person wrote… “Cliff, your Facebook and Twitter are typically focused on your daily activity, its self centered. Your Twitter feed pretty much exemplifies the “me, myself and I” cliche. Shades of pretentiousness. Regarding the book Essentialism. Ever since reading Greg McKeown’s Essentialism, I have been on a mission to eliminate excess noise. What benefit or value would it be for your new media followers to read about your normal daily activities? The high volume of your daily activities should NOT land on the radar of your new media followers. A sense of uniqueness that you feel about yourself?”

In the episode, I share my response to this feedback and talk about a logical option that is available to all when our social media strategies clash with others, even our friends.
