You have a story inside of you that you’re itching to tell. You have so many ideas and big dreams but don’t know where to begin. You envision your dream life, working from home, hanging out with your pets, and getting paid to do what you love. When it comes time to do the work to make those dreams a reality, you freeze. You aren’t sure where to begin. You start to doubt yourself. 

Does this scenario sound familiar? It boils down to the fear of failure, which is really a lack of confidence. In this post, I’m sharing insider tips on how to be a confident influencer. 

How to Be a Confident Influencer

Take Action

You don’t wake up one day and decide to be confident. It’s the same process as building a muscle. The only way to build it is to do the hard work each and every day. Set small goals each day that you can actually accomplish. The more you do the work, the more your confidence will grow over time.

Reach Out

Feeling stuck? You’re not alone! You have this amazing community of pet influencers to reach out to. Sometimes you need to get out of your own head and talk to someone else. Maybe another person can spark an idea or offer help in an area they’ve already figured out. Be sure to join our free Social Learning Community and our private SLC Facebook Group.

Keep Learning

Success is a journey and not a destination. No matter how much you think you know, there is always more to learn. As an influencer, you should read blogs, books, take courses, and attend conferences. Learning is an ongoing process that builds confidence and your business.

Where should you begin? You’re in the right place! BlogPaws offers year round 24/7 learning for pet influencers. We offer educational content on our blog, the SLC, and our annual in-person conference

Keep Evolving

What worked great for your blog three months ago may not be serving you today. Online influencers have to stay on top of trends and re-evaluate what’s working and what’s not. Recently my local Walmart went through a renovation and re-branding. This just illustrates that even the largest brands must evolve with the times and the demands of their customers. It’s okay to evolve and change direction as you go.  The only way you know if it’s time to evolve is by taking action and trying something new.
