How Do You Know?

 

So, this morning I was passing by the TV (not really watching CNN’s Reliable Sources, but it was on), and heard Kathleen Carroll say, “…explain how you know what you know”. This one statement sparked all kinds of thoughts in my head like, this makes so much sense, and she made it sound so simple. And how am I implementing this advice into my everyday life and business? to I need to share this advice and rethink how I present my blog posts and statements’, etc.

She went on to explain how your readers/listeners/viewers/followers will have more confidence in what you say and continue to come back for more when they know that you’re not just blowing smoke.

How many of us really think about this when we share information? We often talk about being transparent, but are we? Transparency, in my opinion, is not just revealing information about yourself, group, or company, but in sharing where you get your information. Keep in mind that our sources hold the key to our credibility, and for this reason we are taught in school to cite our sources. When we cite them, we are letting others know how to verify what we are saying, or how to at least do their own due diligence.

The quote from Carroll is life altering information for me. It’s not as though this is something that I have never known, but quite the contrary. It somehow brought it to the forefront and is reminding me to implement it when sharing relevant info.

 

 

My main point here is simple. Actually, there are two points here:

  1. We all have life lessons that we have learned over the years, but we must remember to put them into proper perspective before sharing.
  2. Cite your sources whenever possible, and when not, state that this is your opinion based on your experiences or a compilation of sources.

I sincerely believe that the latter will help you build trust and repeat visitors to your site and/or business.
