I attended a private Liberal Arts College and I ended up switching majors partway through and made the best decision I could with what Degrees were available. I ended up majoring in Art with a Graphic Design and Photography emphasis and I minored in Journalism and Theater. It turns out that those are the best combination of studies to be able to tell a story as a Marketer.
One of the things that my theater professor told me, that I have used in my business forever and ever, is if you can’t hide it, feature it. I took a look at what my faults are and what things that I’m really not good at and knew I could not hide any of them.
I can not hide the fact that I am super strong, High D personality on the Disc Profile. If you don’t know what a High D personality is, go to Tonyrobbins.com/disc and check out that personality profile. My D rating is literally as high as it can possibly go. That means I don’t filter very well and I have no poker face. It is difficult for me to know when I should or should not say something or when I should lay off of a conversation with someone about how they are not as driven or motivated as I am. Recently, it was pointed out to me that I tend to make the “D face” when something is bothering me. That look or face I make just comes right out and usually in some funny fashion. So, I decided, if I can’t hide it, feature it.
That’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m starting a new podcast called ‘The High D Journey’ where I’m going to be talking about what it is that made me make the “D face” that day. I know that as Entrepreneurs, most of us do have that really strong driven High D personality. Let’s not hide it, let’s feature it!
Think about what your faults might be or think about something that you’re not great at then join me on a High D Journey and let’s see how you can turn that into a win for your business! It’s going to be a lot of fun. I’m sure there’ll be a lot of bumps in the road, but we’ll make it through together.
