Will the REAL Facebook Person Please Stand Up

I read a blog post this morning that absolutely made me crack up. Just had to share it. As motivational speakers, we talk a lot about authenticity. And this lady says it so much better than I ever could.

  1. Love her humor! This post is so timely as it just came up last week following my presentation at Kent State. Was having a heart-to-heart with a gal who resonated with my "Dare Not to Compare"message. She shared that even though she knows it's "fakebook" (her term too!) she has vacation envy from all her FB friend's posts. She said if she saw one more smiling family engaged in a healthy activity together she was going to lose it! I shared with her my own personal challenges between trying to let others know what I'm up to without sounding too obnoxious and keeping it real ("still in white terry bathrobe as I type!"). Especially since I use FB for business too. Either way, this was worth reading from beginning to end! Hilarious and leaves us all feeling like we're doing okay. Thanks again, Kelly for making us feel good… just the way we are.

  2. Colette, you nailed it. Happy, cheerful, funny motivational speakers – may not ALWAYS be happy, cheerful, funny PEOPLE. And FB CAN be a fun place to reveal it all. Well, maybe not ALL – but a lot – of the good the bad and the ugly. Funny how we seem to gravitate to the "picture perfect" parts, right? Anyway, her article was very very fun and funny. 

  3. Such a funny, well written post. I think I have a new favorite blogger now! 

  4. This was such a funny post!  I'm with Colette – I want to share but not come across as too obnoxious.  Plus, as a motivational speaker, I don't want to complain or show crazy stuff that I'm frustrated with because I have clients as friends too.  Interesting thing – is it vulnerability or not practicing what you preach?
