Listen to the People Who Matter
I work in marketing, and in my line of work you hear a lot about influencers–they’re not necessarily the people who buy your product, but they are the people others listen to when choosing a product.
So a common piece of advice is to identify your influencers and focus on them, because if they like what you’re doing, they’ll tell the rest of your audience for you.
The flip side of that is identifying the people who influence your decisions. Who do you listen to? And do they help you?
I think we all know that we live in a world that values youth and a very specific body type that lots of us don’t have. And it’s hard not to be influenced by that cultural attitude. So try as I may to focus on staying healthy, and being able to achieve things physically, I readily admit that, yes, I would also just like to be thinner, and fit in a smaller size.
But you know who doesn’t care? Who sees me and thinks I’m just right?
I should really focus more on listening to Baguette.
