A few months ago I promised my clients I’d email them everyday for 30 days with one fitness tip and in return I’d tell them one thing they didn’t know about me.

I failed miserably. Started off ok. But then it just became bland. I got scared of going too far and putting people off with my crazy life…

But I believe in total transparency. If I can’t be honest about who I am and my vulnerabilities how can I expect clients to be able to share their issues with me?

And besides if people don’t like the ‘real’ me then they wouldn’t want to work with me anyway. We wouldn’t be a good fit.
