I thought this was an AMAZING question and one that gets asked a lot on this platform – hopefully this offers some insight. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Yeah I’m of the mind that if you want me to shut up, give me money or unfollow me. There’s so much noise online these days that if I want to get heard even by the people who follow me (let alone the strangers I hope will find me/my content) I can’t afford to get squeamish at the amount of self-promotion necessary.
ESPECIALLY when you’re the conductor driving a train full of people. You’re the leader. Forge that path!
